1999 BMW M 2dr Convertible


Review

This car gets up and goes, it has never let me down. And even though it is 8 years old it still gets compliments on how good it looks. From the moment I sit in it and turn it on to that low purrrrrr the car sits down, then it goes! The faster I go the smoother it rides, I love the power, even when it is sitting still.


Best Features

Sleek styling.


Worst Features

Lighted inside mirrors, cup holders, remote key lock.

Review

I've owned my M Roadster for seven years and still love it. The retro styling still turns heads and the car is still rock solid. Blinding fast to 60 because of the wonderful torque, it's equally impressive in the important 50-80 range. If you want techno-gadgets, buy something from Japan, but if you like to drive, this is your car. These 1998-2001 cars have bottomed out in price and will soon start appreciating.


Best Features

Acceleration. Handling. Classic roadster styling.


Worst Features

The car is comfortable enough to take on weekend trips, but luggage space is very limited.

Review

This car is excitement on wheels!! It is just an awsome car to drive as well as look at. The cornering ability will amaze you. Just grit your teeth and turn the wheel. I've had a lot of toys but this is the ultimate for the money.


Best Features

speed, cornering, style and feel of the power.


Worst Features

This car is so close to perfect I wouldn't change a thing. I'm not sure what I can replace it with since it sounds like BMW will not make another M Roadster

Review

Have had no significant problems in over 72,000 miles of ownership... however, passenger seat belt is designed to accomodate a child seat (which numerous stickers in the car warn you not to use)and belt locks-up if pulled out too far...not good when wearing heavy winter clothing. Rear view mirror is badly located and too big...blocks right front vision in turns and off ramps...I replaced it with a smaller one. The factory clear coat paint job chips extremely easily...car looks sand- blasted within months.


Best Features

Power/acceleration/Power and Power. Not to mention Power! Good Looks and slot- car handling.


Worst Features

Clear coat paint job is vulnerable to easy chipping, Automatic Traction Control is defeatable - that's good - because it gets in the way of aggressive driving. Mount Rearview on dash (like old MGs) to improve forward visibility
