    Re: Comparison with M3?

    I drove both the new V and the M3 (coupe not 4 door). The M3 looks nice on the outside but the interior is aweful compared to the V. Not sure what things are being considered. The M3 engine wasn't as much fun as the V either and I thought the V rode better and handled just as well. I was as impressed with the V as I was unimpressed with the M3 (considering all the magazines gushing about it all the time). Now to keep things in perspective and to show that I am not a fanboy of either I ended up buying a GTR.

    The design of the M3's interior is aweful, but thats subjective. I know people who love it. One area the BMW is still better in the interior, tho, is the build quality. Even the new V I drove had a flmisy feel to the dash, you could lean against the dash and feel and see flexing of the plastic...something I couldnt replicate in the M3. I think you can still get a full leather interior in the M3 as well, and thats something Id pay for. The V has a much more inviting design, tho.

    And don't forget the V has one of the best NAV systems out there. Way better than either the M3's or my GTR's. I really liked the dash design on the V and controls were all intuitive. I really was VERY impressed with the interior. If you get the NAV on the M3 you have to deal with that stupid knob behind the shifter. Who the hell though that one up?
