1 dealer you should avoid like the plague is motorhub. You only have to google them on here to understand why

You won't be saying that when you buy a bad car and take it back to them where you get crap customer service, not honouring the warranty service provided and lose out on cash.

Has happened loads of times which best to always do you research first.

What I mean is! Do your research and look at a few cars before you make your decision! I'm sure there is a good clean one somewhere waiting for the right buyer! Either dealer or private! Once again, good luck!

I have just bought a 5, I'm loving it so far. I come from a E46 M3 that was setup for track, the Evo is another level. Steering is noticeably much more responsive and its so quick through the gears.

Agree with Watercow, if you buy the right one then you will never need to go back to the seller!

Do u feel like the m3 is a actual.performance car, the sound is a bit Marmite and I read the gear throws on manuals are long.

The M3 is a jack of all trades, you could take it to a wedding or take it to Spa, you can do your shopping it and then turn up for a meet. My M3 was great on track with the right mods. Gear throw is long but nothing a short shifter does not sort out.

Keeping my eyes peeled for anything decent coming up for sale, need to shift my 350z now but my partner gave birth to my 2nd child yesterday so that's going to be pushed back a week or so!

Couldn't wait any longer, my Zed is now for sale on pistonheads. Will be keeping my eyes peeled for a 5/6.

What is the main difference between the two besides styling?

Love the sound coming out of the exhaust, sound fantastic.
I think they are great handling cars. They have a very unique and sophisticated suspension arrangement, Google it. Also fantastic steering feel and all the tail happiness you could want.

Mine was a hoot round blyton on Michelin super sports. I think they are more sporting than they are given credit for.
