If you like aggressive fenders, M3. If you like flabby fenders, M4.

M3 hands down. The F80 body looks AMAZING in a 4 door, something is off with the coupe. The M3 just looks more aggressive.

The M4 is a tad lighter than the M3, about 40lbs IIRC. I built mine knowing I'd track it some, so weight was a factor for me. Caron roof, manual trans, 19", HK and mine weighs 3460lbs.

Looks wise, I still get compliments on the M4. "Gorgeous", "classy", "pretty", are the terms people use usually. The M3, with its fender flares has a little more aggressive look from the factory I think. You can do a lip and a spoiler on an M4 to make it more aggressive looking as an alternative.

4 doors? NOPE. Since when did 4 doors qualify as looking good and being sporty? Every sports car in existence has had two doors. If you need 4 doors, BMW makes something called a 5 Series and beyond that, a 7 Series; those are proper 4 door cars. Get the M4 if appearance is a priority.
