Very nice mate, I really like these. How does it compare to the M3?
I prefer it to the M3.
I'm no pro driver, so i wasn't one for drifting the M3 or anything. It was a very nice drive though.
However the STi is go kart like, raw & no fancy accessories or electronics. A hell of a lot less to go wrong compared to the M3 (Which started to show signs of issues)
Rather than have big bills coming my way i decided to go for something with something a bit easier on the wallet to maintain.
What a gorgeous beast!
Tell us.... Is the hype with the e46 m3 *really* justified? Was it a stunning car to drive? I'm curious
It was pretty stunning to drive, I really enjoyed it. If mine had no issues i wouldn't have sold it. But things kept popping up & i'd had enough. Cut my losses and got rid.
I really enjoyed my Type R, and 90% of my M3 ownership i said to myself i shouldn't have sold it. M3 was 8 years old when i got it but the sheer amount of potential issues blew my mind.
Overall i knew the M3 had potential issues, so i bought the newest one i could, spent more money on it than i had planned to. When i drove it, it was great, couldn't spot a fault with it. But they started to creep up. Disappointing to be honest for a car that costs so much new. I'm happy with the STi though, so fun!
