I am Mr. BMW. I have had in the last year 08 BMW 335i (still have it) 06 BMW X5 4.8is (still have it) 07 Z4M(gone) I wanted a M3 Test drove 4 M3s 2 coupes a convertible hard top, and the Sedan. I was in the Sales managers office and we were $5000 off the trade in of my 07 911 GT3 (bad back cant drive it anymore needed a higher off the ground car) They couldnt do it that after noon and a friend called me who has an 07 AMG CLK black series and told me to test drive a AMG C63. I was blown away. Its better in every category. Handling Space and performance. In the motor department the M3 is not even in the same class. 450hp to 400 and it torque its a 140 lb feet off. Right now the M3 needs a makeover. Its really not a contest right now.
Until BMW gets more power torqe. Its a no brainer.

C36 hands down. Chipped, it'll eat an E36 M3 for breakfast. I know, because I have one of each :)
