$66,000 is a serious amount of money for a smallish two-door, but then again, the M3 coupe is a serious car. It's seriously powerful, with 414 hp, and it's also seriously fast, launching to highway speeds before you know it. It may not be altogether practical, what with its compromised luggage and rear-seat space, but any car enthusiast would likely be perfectly happy to drive this car every day. That's because, even when you're not pushing the M3, it's a very easy car to live with. The clutch is a little heavy for my taste, but it's still a very civilized car in which to run your daily routine. And, if you happen to hit that perfect section of twisty road, feel free to open up the throttles - all eight of them - and let go.
