I think I might go with an E36 for my next car.

Hmmm...lets see.

Ever heard of the Mitsubishi GTO? What about the Dodge Stealth? Or the Mitsubishi 3000GT?

Oh wait! They're the same cars! Exact same chassis and similar design just with different badges. Hell, the 3000GT and the GTO used the same chassis and exterior but were just rebadged for different markets.

Dooo it. :P No but seriously...it's a nice car. They're pretty affordable too. A 325i in great condition is about $4,000-$6,000 on craigslist.

You should hear the E92 M3. It sounds SO nice. Not too deep, but light enough with an aggressive note.

Check this one out for the m5, its just and exhaust video, but the kid in the background is kinda funny too.

But this is what I mean by deep throaty sound...

Oh yeah, I know what you mean. My friend put dual Flowmasters on his Chevrolet Tahoe. It's a nice deep rumble, but I still can't get enough of the M3 and M5's engine notes...god they're beautiful.

I want to put flowmasters on my truck, but idk. It's only a 4.0, so it wont have as throaty a growl as that big block... And my mom thinks making it loud is bad.

And have it shipped? Thanks for the offer though

Are the M3's really worth it over the non-M3 versions?

In my opinion, yes. Even as a DD the E36 M3s are very nice. Great power, decent torque, amazing handling and it looks damned nice. They're actually not that bad when it comes to fuel mileage, although that depends on how much lead is in your foot when you accelerate.
