Yes u r right . The Z4 M Coupe is the better balanced an handling car in stock form. But the old Z3 version (I had a 2002 model with the S54 engine) is more exciting and scary in some way. The rear end will try to overtake the front in almost any sharp driven corner. This car was a beast, crazy driving dynamics but very rewarding once u learn to tame it. It made me a better driver. A suspension mod was a must do thing on this car otherwise it was a unacceptable on a track. I remember the first moment I hit it hard after leaving the dealership at the traffic light, wondering "why am I looking at the sky" . The car would squad and dive so bad instock form it took me less than 4 days after ownership that I ordered by coilovers. Anyway all in the past now. Go Evo

Mine's an 08 model too. I got it pre-owned from the dealer. So far no mods besides LED angel eyes. Everything is damn expensive!

Beautiful car for sure, different kind of a monster than the evo needless to say.

A friend of mine a long wrx driver (06 wrx wagon, stage 2), decided to go with the V8 power. Kinda is growing on me as well, especially being in AR where the motto is "the bigger the better". Who knows, in 2 years my plan is to get a used 2012 GTR but might instead got for a supercharged v8... Never had a chance of driving a RWD v8 monster for a long time period, might change that.

What made you go with m3 instead of perhaps a zo6? Well, minus the 4 doors and "more" use to it than a vett as both are not as multi purpose as an EVO when it comes to weather and DD availability.
