2006 BMW M Convertible 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The car is nimble and yet awesomely powerful, it handles the curves like it's on rails. The interior is a tad bit cramped for a large person but is comfortable and does not have that cheap look found in a Corvette. The M roadster draws some attention on the road but not like the glitzy Italian inspired vehicles. It is a true classic sports car for someone who drives a sports car for the sheer love of it.


Favorite Features

The engine, is awesome, smooth and powerful. It wants to be driven. The classic sports car look.


Suggested Improvements

Figure out a way to improve gas mileage from 25 MPG highway to 28 MPG to match the Boxster. After all we must all think green.

2006 BMW M Convertible 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Great car. Of recent sports cars I've owned this one has the torque/acceleration of my 430 hp '03 Cobra and handling of my Honda S2000.


Favorite Features

Super high revving motor.


Suggested Improvements

The navigation system is cumbersome to use, but hey this car isn't for business trips in unfamiliar territory

Review

Always wanted to buy an M car. Plus was looking for a 3rd ("fun") car. Voila - the M roadster. Considered the SLK (no stickshift), Boxster (for M money you can only buy the wimped out model with around 240 HP which most mags gloss over), and the Corvette (too common). Looks great in 3-D no matter what mags say. Has presence, menace. A very capable track car with two caveats, easily fixed; i.e. previous gen tires and some brake fade. Ride is not harsh. Interior looks great but the dash feels like it's made of cheap plastic. User friendly controls. No problems in one year of ownership. Takes time to start in sub-freezing temps. Engine is supreme, shifter precise. A man's car.


Suggested Improvements

Softer plastics. Low effort shifter. Better tires and fade free brakes.

Review

This is one of the most amazing compact cars available on the market today. Sophisticated computer systems invisibly assist the driver while cornering, hard braking and accelerating. The feeling of safety and security in such a small car is incredible. The premium sound system is amazingly crisp and clear with excellent dynamic range. This vehicle turns heads everywhere - I've never had so many total strangers comment about the car. Be prepared to draw attention!


Favorite Features

///M Engine, ///M steering wheel with button controls, awesome brakes, rapid acceleration with great traction, quick steering response, overall comfort, the premium sound system is one of the best I've ever heard in a vehicle


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders are currently mounted in outbound position away from center, need better microphone system for hands free phone, silver trim on interior door handles collect fingerprints that are nearly impossible to wipe off without using a solvent, should include garage door transmitter mirror

Review

Hi - BMW has finally decided to take my Z4 M Roadster back. Had it since April on a lease and had been in at the dealership 15 odd times till August 28. Had multiple problems including: 1) Squeaks when the roof was down and when they fixed this 2) squeaks when the roof was up on the drivers side and when that was fixed 3) squeaks on the passenger side and when they fixed that 4) rattle in the a/c vents and when they fixed this 5) the windows would not close when the roof was put up unless I opened each door, did the window up and then shut the door and they changed the on-board computer and guess what - the windows still did not close!! It spent at least 4 weeks at the shop in 5 months!!


Favorite Features

Acceleration, braking and handling!


Suggested Improvements

Poor build quality. Poor fit and finish. Multiple bugs in the car.
