4. BMW M3
The M3 sits high on the hog like many BMW sports coupes, with a loyal following that enjoys driving the legendary “beamers”. Sadly, though, the M3 needs an update just like much of the BMW lineup. The current M3 has been in one form or another since 2006, although the body has been updated from time to time. The performance of the M3 is still fun, but it falls short of exhilarating. To justify the high price tag BMW builds a lot on the reputation of the brand, but the M3 leaves a lot to be desired.
Fast and fun German cars are getting more scarce as the industry turns toward crossover vehicles. The M3 is one of the last holdouts. But the car needs a redesign quite badly. In terms of driving characteristics and the overall experience, the M3 is falling behind the competition. For the high price tag, there are comparable vehicles on the road.
