Siyah isn't the z4 m coupe better than the z3? that's what I'd expect, same inline 6 as the m3.
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.

My friend has a C6 Z06 and it is a very fast car. Much faster than the M3. My big complaint about the Evo is that it wasn't very DD friendly. Always a rough ride and it was loud at 80mph on the highway with a lot of road and engine noise. I like the quiet ride, refined interior and the practicality of 4 doors otherwise I would like the Corvette. It never snows here so I don't need the all-weather ability.

Loving the pics, sedan def. has the better rear imo. The '12 headlights are awesome, try to nab those lol.
I like the sedan, it has a more muscular bulldog look than the coupe's sleek curvy lines.

The M3 has the same headlights from 08-12. They updated the regular coupe headlights, a new bumper and hood on the 11-12 3-series. The M3 uses a different bumper and hood so the new headlights can't be put on.

I can understand the point now, good call. For the price and all, it is a better DD you could say. I have the MR Touring (most sound deadening in all of evo models) but with the ETS v2 it is loud at highway speeds, M3 wouldnt be any different with the ETS v2 though. German engineering and comfort is def. better than asian if you ask me but I grew up with Germans cars, I love them all.

Congratz on your M3 man, hopefully you will enjoy it like you enjoyed your evo !
