By now, you’ve probably heard that BMW M3s are the best way to go for a budget sedan.
The German automaker says it can beat out every other car in the market, but with a starting price of around $50,000, its offerings are much cheaper than a Mercedes-Benz SLS or a Tesla Model S. While its M cars are often lauded for their performance and design, its cars have some shortcomings.

But the fact that it costs just $50k more doesn’t mean it’s a bad car.
