1999 BMW M 2dr Coupe
Review
Bought this 99 M Coupe in 2001 with 11000 miles on it. Still mint condition after a DIY clay-bar treatment last week, with 75000 miles of pure driving exhilaration on it. Looks best from behind, which is the view most people get of it anyway. All I've had to do is change fluids and filters. Car is now on its 2nd set of front tires, 3rd set of rear tires (Michelin Pilot Sports). First brake job approaching now, at 75000 miles. Car handles like a gecko-footed go-kart. Incredible grip, low-end torque and acceleration -- and this is just the 240-hp version.
Favorite Features
Low-end torque -- pulls like a horse (240 of them) from 1,500 rpm in fifth, all the way to whatever speed you care to ease off at. Cornering grip is impressive. $32000 well spent in 01.
Suggested Improvements
Hatch latch had to be fixed five times under warranty and has been OK since warranty expired. Glove box rattling again after one rebuild while under warranty. Rear-view mirror is a bad vision blocker -- driver makes like hunchback at junctions, lights etc when trying to peer around it.
