2003 M Coupe or Keep the 2002 M3 Coupe?

Hi,

What do you guys think I should do. Should I save up money right now and get a 2003 M Coupe or keep the 2002 M3 Coupe and mod the hell out of it? If I am getting the new car, I'd stop modding now and save up enough for it. Thanks!

Agreed....but why would you consider trading an M3 coupe for the M breadwagon? :tongue:

M Coupe for sure... those are one of the greatest performing vehicles BMW has ever produced.. when all the ///Ms are compared.. the M Coupe always comes out on top as the favorite... definitely the M Coupe

Keep the M3 coupe, too much hassle to switch. They're discontinuing production of the M coupe this year, although it's one of the better M cars ever made . Just my .02

Get the M coup if you are not going to sell the M3 and just mod the M3 after you pay for the M coup fully.

A 2003 Mcoupe will not exist. That said, you still have the option of an '02 coupe, off the showroom floor - ordering has already ceased. It's a tough call..I'm trying to make the same decision right now.

Keep the 2002 M3 Coupe! Unless of course you want a smaller ride... Although I don't think there is going to be a 2K3 M Coupe. Keep what you have!

i totally agree, even if the M Coupe outperforms the M3, the M3 just looks soo much better and its not like its lacking in the performance category

If it's your only car, I'd say M3 - all around performer, 90% of the performance of the M coupe.

If you're going to use it as a hardcore racing machine, then definitely the M coupe.
