1998 BMW M 2dr Convertible


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.


Best Features

I am six eight so I can only drive it with the top down. It accelerates like mad. The radio gets louder as the wind noise increases. It gets looks, even after five years.


Worst Features

make the thing so it isn't so expensive to work on, ie, don't wield a motor to the seat frame!!! of course, make it to fit a six eight, 250lb guy.

Review

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.


Best Features

Engine, Wheels, Looks from the ladies!!


Worst Features

Definitely could benefit from rear glass window. I do have the optional Hard top that does have rear defrost feature.

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.


Best Features

BRAKING! Interior ergonimics. Secure feeling in the Ricaro seats. Two tone leather. Short throw shifter. It's perfect.


Worst Features

None. It's perfect. Truly, the ultimate driving machine.
