Review of the 1998 BMW M

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    We don't care what other people say, we still think that this is the best roadster in the country. Willing engines, superb steering and brakes, a classic shape, and reasonable price make this car a stand out among the new offerings from Mercedes-Benz and Porsche.

  • Cons

    Limited trunk space means that you will always travel light. Small gas tank means that you will stop frequently for fuel.

Close but not perfect

Vehicle: 1998 BMW M 2dr Convertible

A midget weight lifter who also wrestles and runs races. This is the modern equivalent to a classic British sports car - only very reliable and doesn't rust. Some short cuts were taken on interior design (no fuse for instrument lights, seat bushings wear quickly,glove box droops, plastic shoulder harness guides break habitually) but there are easy fixes for all of these and otherwise overall quality is great. This is a bargain in the used sports car market, and will bring a smile to your face every time you drive it. Be sure to inspect the rear sub-frame attach points in the trunk for separation on any candidate car being considered. This is a known weak area and is expensive to repair.

This car is one of the most fun cars you can drive. Its 240 hp is much stronger than it suggests. It will smoke most cars with 300 plus hp. If you get an opportunity to drive one you'll buy it, it feels like a miniature 427 Cobra. Tons of torque with wheel spinning drifting power, even stock it will give most new sport cars a run for their money!




Unbelievable machine

Vehicle: 1998 BMW M 2dr Convertible

Wow!!! This car is unbelievable. I have owned over 100 cars most of which are special interest. This is hands down the most fun and thrilling to drive. The power at acceleration is mind boggling - it throws you back in the seat and there is no hesitation or lag when you put the pedal to the medal. I never really buy cars to keep for a long time but if I ever sold this M roadster it would only be to buy another one. I absolutely love it. Any car nut who has a chance to drive one will buy one. This car is the best kept performance car secret on earth.

Full 1998 BMW M Review

What's New for 1998

BMW's Motorsport division creates a meaner version of the Z3 dubbed the M Roadster. The M comes with 240-horsepower 3.2-liter inline six and rides on a stiffened version of the Z3 chassis with sticky 17-inch rubber mounted at each corner. The result is something like a German translation of an old big-block Cobra.
