Nice quotes:

he M3 offers an unparalleled mix of hassle-free livability and performance at a price that undercuts those of the Nissan and the Porsche. For that, it wins in our book.

M3 isnít as quick as its turbocharged competition, but 0 to 60 mph in 4.4

M3 test car displayed a better ride-and-handling compromise



I don't know if those are what I'd look for in a shoot out

You forgot these;

Handling, both the track and public roads, matched the GT-R in out individual scoring...The GT-R steamrolls the tarmac into submission in an eerie sort of way, the M3 allows the driver to use the car as an instrument.

The M3 is the car that the driver has the most control over.

The chassis has no surprises, no snap reactions, no bad habbits-even midcorner bumps are soaked up without drama.

Unlike the heavyweights, the BMW feels smaller the harder it is driven.

The sound the BMW V-8 makes deserves a grammy. It's a V-8 note not often heard outside racetracks, while the Nissan and the Porsche both sound as though they could wear a Dyson label.

The M3 didn't draw any negative words in its logbook.



I am not saying it is the fastest of the 3 cars compared, but if you consider performance, build quality, styling, refinement, comfort, overall driving experience and price. I would think it is fair to say the M3 is the best of the group. It sounds like that is what the article was about. Not which car was the fastest.

Would you consider any of the other to be a better all around 2+2? With price being a factor?
