X5M. I wouldn't change a thing about it. I don't miss a thing when I'm driving it and it's handy, keeps my kids safe, sounds great and is a stop light rocket. I won't ever be buying another expensive M other than the X5M. Came close to moving to an M5 but i couldn't let her go. Now would i add a e92 and keep that for life yea but if i had to pick one; X5M.

E92 M3 GTS or E46 M3 CSL. I'd die happy. Then my goals would just be to acquire a 997.2 GT3 and have nothing else to look forward to in life, lol

E46 M3 CSL because I believe this car was so special for its time and absolutely timeless design on the interior / exterior.
E92 M3 GTS because S65, bored/stroked out, wailing near 9k redline. Self explanatory

Still deep in love w/ my 228ix; not any kind of ultimate stroke-fantasy, but it still puts a grin on my face before I start it up, and it just gets better from there.... Mods to come, but no need for a different platform.

E90 M3 for sure, assuming it never needs unplanned maintenance.

Meaning this entire thread is useless, as BMW is the opposite of reliable.

I disagree my 340i has had less issues in 50k miles then all the Cadillac, Fiat, Dodges, Chystler, Ford, Mercs, Chevy, Nissan, and Hyundai I've driven.

But I did have a 328 which was a POS.

F80 Alpina for me.

Those wanting 2 doors or 2 seaters are not being truly honest IMO.

Or people have different opinions than you? I've only owned coupes and don't plan on looking back. My wife's car can have 4 doors, mine will have two.

If Maintenance and repair are free, then M6 GC.

If I need to pay for Maintenance and repair, then 540i M sport.

Now that the RS5 will be available in 5 door hatch there is a bit of a rumour going around about an M4 GC in the next gen.

It would be my car I already own. 2004 325i E46 It rides smooth picks up good speed. It's black with very tinted windows led back n front lights. Great system with a Android touch screen. Flawless interior. It's my baby. Have been thinking about putting twin turbo but idk.

Also going with the one I have - the M2.
I like small cars, I like fast cars, and I like cars with manual transmissions.
I will take all the limitations that come with owning a small car. I'd rather rent a truck or SUV few times per year than compromise on my daily driver.
