There aren't many other choices when it comes to high-performance luxury sedans in the BMW M3's size class, but the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is a solid alternative.
With a potent V-8 engine, balanced handling, and track-bred styling, it's as head-turning and as smile-inducing as the last M3--and a new version of the C63 AMG should be on its way within the next year or so.
Audi's S4 is not quite as sharply tuned as the M3 or C63 AMG, or even Audi's own RS5, but if you don't require as much spice with your sugar, the S4's clean aesthetics and refined interior may be more appealing to you.
