2001 BMW M Coupe 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.


Best Features

I like the way it's so well balanced.


Worst Features

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

2001 BMW M Coupe 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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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+.

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!!!


Best Features

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


Worst Features

A SIX SPEED TRANNY WOULD BE PREFERABLE.
