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

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.
