My Ride: E46 M3
What's everyone's opinions on the new golf gti and R??

Ok so not sure if everyone knows but found out my M3's subframe is cracked. I'm currently trying to get the dealer which I purchased it off to fix it as it falls under a breech of stat warranty but we will see how it goes.

Anyway either way the car will get fixed and I'm probably going to sell it as I don't want to drive a car that ill constantly worried about - just can't enjoy it even though I love the car and don't want to let it go.

Anyway I'm looking at getting something reliable which I can enjoy without worrying and won't cost me tons of money to maintain so whats everyone's opinions?
I'm looking at
Golf R/GTI
Toyota 86
BMW 135 (how reliable are they, or will it cost just as much as an M to maintain?)
Nissan 370GT (not sure about this one)

Anyone have any other suggestions or opinions?

Also once the M is repaired it will be a great purchase for someone - repaired and reinforced subframe and a 5 year warranty on the car. Yes I know it would sound like its worry free after its fixed I just can't live with the issues it can bring and probably need something a little more responsible for my DD and my fiancÚ as a child may be on the way soon.

Thanks all!!!
