    advice needed/wanted

    I have a 04 V that I just sold. I live in Germany and can't figure on what car to replace it with. I found a new M3 but you see BMW's everywhere, I'm also looking at the new Challenger SRT 8 with 6 speed. I like the dodge because of it's boldness, I like the BMW just because it is a M3. Help me out

    I would like that too. But I can get the new M3 for 10G less and the SRT 8 for 15G less.

    I'd get the M3.

    The one word that pops in to my head everytime I see a Callenger is BLOAT.

    I'm sure you'd get a LOT of attention in that car over there though.

    Why not get a lightly used M3 for now, then pick up a lightly used V2 in a year or so?

    thank you for the input. I can't find a used American M3. The Challenger get attention over here, but it is big and bulky.

    Re: advice needed/wanted

    Of the choices you have, I guess I would go ahead and say M3 as well. But it won't be ANYWHERE near as comfortable, or enjoyable as a V2. I had a 2002 M3 Convertible and the thing nearly jarred my teeth out. What's worse, the SMG transmission was an absolute disaster. It is very odd that even though E46 BMWs are one of my favorite cars of ALL TIME, the E46 M3 is one of the WORST cars I owned.

    Still, there is no doubting they get the job done when it comes to PRECISION and SPEED. So if that's all you want, and your concern is what badge is on the back of your car (sounds like it), then just get the M3. Otherwise be patient and get the V2 you really want.

    By the way, why the hell would you want an "American" M3? Aren't the German versions of EVERYTHING better?
