M3 over time will hold value better. The 5-series engine seems to have a bad reputation. I'd personally buy a slightly used 2020 m550 x-drive for a fuck of a lot less $

if it'll be a long term daily, i just feel the 5-series is more polished than the 3/4-series.

same thing with audi, you wouldn't think there is much difference between the A/S-4 and A/S-6 series but the interior and seats on the bigger model is a tier up.

if you care about long long term resale, any audi with the turbo-5 is going to be highly desirable, so the RS3 wouldn't be a bad purchase. it's just as a sedan, it's really cramped.

Yes, it will be. There's a reason why BMW doesn't offer a lot of the manufacturer's extended warranty on full M cars. So you get hit twice - once in reliability and then again with cost to repair.

No idea about Audi RSs, but I doubt it will be any better. AMG also has the exact same issues. Porsche is actually really good here because they don't really distinguish between say, their Turbo cars and regular Porsches for warranties.

The best deal is the level right below full M. That m50i of whatever rather than full M. That's always been my approach.

I have had: several 3 series (including M), X5, X5M, X7M50i, M850i, and e39 M5. I would say get something with AWD if you are going to DD. The 3 series is a bit "small." The M5 probably is best. Don't listen to the haters about reliability.

2021 M3 is really unattractive. I don’t know how quickly it’s going to depreciate, and I wouldn’t want to constantly see the looks of revulsion when pedestrians look at the car. Would be a real downer.

Would personally go for M2 CS. Can throw winters on it and be fine anywhere south of Vermont.

Only the base model (slow with low range). Cost goes up very quickly with Porsche as you move up trims and add options. Meanwhile, you're comparing the top end of BMW models that have everything included.

Also those tires get flats all the time because of the low profile. It is just not very practical. I specifically wanted 19" wheels instead of 20 or 21" because they're a) much cheaper to replace and b) far less prone to flats. No regrets.

I'm telling you, diet M is the way to go. Pick your features based on how you'll actually use the car. Also, current m50i engines are the last generation's full M.

Absolutely not. Mercedes gave in to environmentalists and has a supercharged 3.0L V6 vs a 4.4L turbo-V8 in the M550i. The latter is much better and for the same money. To get competitive with Mercedes you have to go full AMG.
