come on, this is kinda ridiculous.

they are two very different cars with very different purposes.

the esprit is a true sports car with mega performance. two seats only no real trunk space not really an everyday driver.

the m3 is a high performance coupe with real practicality for everyday use (a real trunk and a back seat).

I think every garage needs a SUV (x5 maybe), an everyday high po driver (M3 or M5 if you haul more that 2 people frequently) and a full on 2 seat sports car animal (my choice would be a mclaren F1)

An Esprit Turbo is an awesome high-performance vehicle, though fairly out of date. I would say there are many other vehicles which would be better comparisons if the ONLY consideration is performance at the cost of practicality. A short list of possible candidates: Viper, Z06, 996, even 360 Modena...
As much as I like the Esprit in concept, I don't think anything would compel me to buy one!

The M3, as everybody on here knows, is a way to combine hair-raising performance with a (relatively) low-profile, high bang-for-the-buck, practical (back seat plus trunk) fun car.

in trying to keep it running well. Especially a used one with no kind of warranty at all. Even if you have the money to take care of one why bother, when you can get a new M3 with a full 4yr 50,0000 mile warranty. Dave.
