Review of the 2002 BMW M

  • The M coupe and convertible are bruiser punks masquerading as stylish debs; they're like Mickey Rourke in Jude Law's body. If raw-edged performance is what you're after, the M provides it in spades.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    World-renowned performance, brute strength, exclusivity.

  • Cons

    Two-seater configuration limits functionality, roadster still sports a plastic rear window, platform is starting to age.

  • What's New for 2002

    BMW makes a CD player part of the standard equipment list. No other changes are in store for the 2002 model year.

The roadster

by on
Vehicle: 2002 BMW M 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl 5M)

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.

Vehicle: 2002 BMW M 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5M)

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!

Vehicle: 2002 BMW M 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl 5M)

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 $.
