As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M3 and the Chevrolet Corvette in the front seats.
With the Chevrolet Corvette you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW M3, due to its tank size and fuel economy.
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the BMW M3 is clearly a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Corvette. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW M3 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette.
Since the BMW M3 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW M3, which is slightly longer than the Chevrolet Corvette.
The BMW M3 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Corvette, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.
The BMW M3 has about the same turning radius as the Chevrolet Corvette, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.
The BMW M3 has less horsepower than the Chevrolet Corvette, so it will probably be somewhat slower.
The BMW M3 offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW M3 has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Corvette, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW M3 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
