Review

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.

BMW M Power

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

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.

Fun with a capital M

Review

The '98 model was the first year for the M version of the Z3 and has the S52 engine with 240 bhp and about 238 ft lbs of torque. Combine this power with a tuned suspension and a mere 3000 lbs of empty weight, and you have the definition of 'pocket rocket.' While the later 2001/2002 model year versions of the (Z3) M Roadster had a more powerful (and more complicated to maintain) engine rated at 315 bhp, the additional HP is pretty much useless on American roads and highways, unless you just liked having your neck snapped back from standing starts, that is. The M Roadster has a lower and more aggressive stance than the Z3, and it's a head turner. The M Roadster just plain ROCKS.

Review

This car is fun to drive. It is a blast. The handling is terrific, acceleration is WOW. It is my wife's car and fortunately she goes out of town occasionally and I get to drive it. It has been in for electric seat trouble, the motor burned out and is welded to the frame, so the whole seat frame has to be replaced. The air conditioner has a hole in the evaporator canister (not sure if right term). Costs 1,100 to fix. An oxygen sensor had to be replaced. The seats dont fit tight as a result they shift slightly when cornering.

Needed a fun 2 seat luxury sport convertible and the M Roadster Fulfills all needs. Complete Package Looks, Power, and fun to Drive. What i like most is when other drivers don't see the M Badge and think they can blow me away..HA I leave them in the dust.

Review

This car is the single best car I've driven and had the pleasure to own. It's ablities to corner, accelerate, and not to mention turn heads of everyone who sees it. It's braking is superior to that of any car I've ever driven. It's safety in an accident, is unmatched. The car, hugs you in place, while it hugs every curve in the road. You don't drive this car. You DRIVE it.
