Agree on the M3 is just a car. No problem. This was simply a commentary and not meant to be snobbish.

I thought they were relesing the coupe with the same V8 in the Genesis Sedan. That car would be sick, hate all you want but that motor is serious. I love the E46 M3, but Hyundai is definitely coming around...

+1 i finally got to see the coupe in person. ( a yellow one) on the freeway today coming home from work. It does not look like anything special at all and you can tell from first look its a hyundai. it doesnt even look like a 2009 body style car, it looks like it could have come out in like 2004

oops, my comment was not intended towards your remark.

I was just referring to the fact that some people associate M3 with prick#$, jer$k etc like the other OP

I don't see the problem that they compare it with E46 M3 even though E46 is 10 years older.
Reason for doing so is because most people know what the M3 E46 is good for.

I just absolutely hate Huiyndai. It doesn't matter if they came up with better cars than bmw,
I would still hate it and I don't want to ever stop hating it.

Guys, c'mon why are we even having this discussion. We are comparing a BMW with a Hyundai. Personally I think that's insulting. Enough said.

It's really sad to see some of the reactions people on this forum have... And you wonder why people say BMW owners are *ssholes...

If you can't respect other cars, how do you expect to get respect for yours? I'm not saying the Genesis Coupe is great, but it's a good car for the money.

They only say its "stiffer" than the e46 (referring to a 3 series) and he thinks its stiffer than the m3. The author never actually tested them side by side. and all hyundai says is its stiffer than the e46 with no claims against the m3. Plus "stiffer" is more a term with the feel than the actual handling. I want to see them side by side through Laguna Seca or on a skid pad.
