It's easy to spot the M3 from among the standard 3-Series range thanks to the bulging hood that makes room for the 414-horsepower V-8 below. In coupe form, the M3 is one of the best-looking two doors available.
The sedan's profile lengthens and pushes the coupe's more upright, but remains stylish. The convertible gains some thickness and heft with the loss of the roof, but likewise is among the best lookers on the market. In all, it's one of the most attractive M3 lineups ever.
Interior design is a bit more common to the rest of the 3-Series than you'd expect, with materials and shapes remaining somewhat cold and aloof rather than engaging or welcoming. Custom colors and trims can help make it your own. Easy-to-read dials and gauges, touches of carbon fiber, and available wood trim upgrades also speak to the M3's quality of design.
