Re: Why the general teen shoujld not get a sports car...

It is a M series - more HP, better suspension and brakes. The original E30 M3 way back in the 80's was created for racing and it won everything it was raced in. They eventually changed the rules to prevent it from running.

The newer M3's are more luxury on top of the added tweaks. Usually command $10+K more than a regular BMW (330i, 325i etc...) or more.

The 1M car is fantastic and a limited run was done... Very expensive and only 2K made.

The M1 is generally considered to be the first super sports car.

Its styling was used by many other manufacturers.

Ahh okay I knew the M was basically the BMW version of the SS badge. I just didnt know that the E46 meant so was figuring it was a step up from a normal M5 or something.

E46 is the body style/engine for a model for specific years... E46 cars went from 1999 or 2000 to 2006 for the 3 series of cars.
