Everytime I sit behind the wheel I start to smile. What a joy to drive - outstanding acceleration, handling, and fun. The only car I have ever owned that I like to drive, years later, just for the sake of driving! This isn't a commuter car, or even a very practical car considering the small trunk - it was designed for pure driving pleasure. Put the top down, with your loved one at your side, and find a long twisting country road - If you aren't smiling the whole way then you don't have a pulse. No embellishment, just the facts. A true driving classic.

I loved this eccentric vehicle from the moment I first set eyes on it and I have not been disappointed. It steers like a go-kart and has one of the sweetest motors available from any manufacturer - Porsche included. There are a few small details that could be better - like the windows don't wind down all the way and central locking is an aftermarket fitment - not good on a $46k car. All is forgiven once you get this beast out on a mountain road and it comes into it's element. Single minded firecracker with just one purpose - to be driven and hard!

This car has outstanding strait-line
performance. It is a horsepower-driven
engine that loves to Rev. After owning
and test driving several BMWs, I can
tell you that this is BMW's best manual
transmission. The throws are short and
precise. Steering feel excellent and
the car prefers to oversteer in hard
cornering. Stability could be better.
A tower brace would greatly improve
that. Overall, and excellent car with
Outstanding perfomance for the $.

If ever there was a car that waved a
finger at practicality, the M Coupe is
it. The cockpit ain't real well put
together and the back end looks like
it was borrowed off a frog . So what?
Hack this machine through fast
mountain roads - exciting and
unforgettable. The motor is a real
honey and the box is quite slick once
you get used to hitting 3rd instead of
5th from 2nd. The brakes are hard to
fault under road conditions. DSC
turned off, the back end power slides
so easily that inexperienced drivers
find that it's very easy to get very
What do people say when they see
it???....Whaaat is that thing???
Ha, I love it!

Fast and fun! Last week I pulled up
next to a ferrari, although the ferrari
won the race the driver was amazed at
how well the m roadster kept up with
his $250,000 car! This car has bang
for the buck! If you want a car that
turns heads get this car!
2002 325xi, leatherette, SP, PP, Xenons. Handles like a dream and the hp is good enough for me (330 was out of my $ range). This car is beautiful. Thanks for all of the answers to my questions in th...
