2001 BMW M 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Amazing car. BMW did not include the M differential or the sport mode button for political reasons. You can install the sport mode with just a wire and a button. The diff can be replaced for under $100 from a breaking yard to bring up to the pace of the E46 M3. Try a launch with sport mode on and then you will not believe it. It's a rocket ship. 12.51 quarter, bone stock.


Favorite Features

I like the way it's so well balanced.


Suggested Improvements

Do the diff and the sport mode mod. They are both very simple, and very inexpensive.

2001 BMW M 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I haven't experienced any of the build quality issues yet. The issues with the S54 engine are always in the back of my mind. Other than that, this car is just so enjoyable to drive. I love it. BMW will never build another car like this. Ever.


Favorite Features

Engine, Performance, styling, rarity, cool/weird-factor


Suggested Improvements

Gearing is terrible. Should have had a 3.64 or 3.37 instead of the 3.23, along with a 6 speed tranny. The Coupe hates to be in 5th unless you're doing 90+.

2001 BMW M 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

THE M COUPE FITS THE DRIVER LIKE A GLOVE. THE SPORT SEATS ARE FIRM AND KEEPS THE DRIVER LOCKED IN PLACE. THE EUROPEAN SPEC. ENGINE CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS RACE CAR LIKE WITH ITS SIX INDIVIDUAL THROTTLE BODIES AND INSTANT ACCELERATION. THE STARES I GET WHEN DRIVING THIS LITTLE ROCKET IS AMAZING. YOUNG AND OLD ALIKE ASK ME QUESTIONS ABOUT MY M COUPE SUCH AS " I'VE NEVER SEEN ONE OF THESE BEFORE". I AM COMPLETELY SATISFIED WITH MY PURCHASE!!!


Favorite Features

THE 315 HP. ENGINE HAS TREMENDOUS ACCELERATION AND OFF THE LINE TORQUE.


Suggested Improvements

A SIX SPEED TRANNY WOULD BE PREFERABLE.
