I've owned other BMWs and this is the "Ultimate Driving Machine" like they say it is. I enjoy driving it around town and long trips both. It has never left me stranded yet. Parts are still readily available too. There are faster & better handling coupes out there, but this is just a fun car to drive. With the price of fuel rising, I think I'll keep her.
The 2.3 liter M power motor. Small size. Nice handling. Flared metal fenders give it a little meaner look.
They've already made the improvement in the newer models. (It would have been cool to see a turbo diesel M car.)
This isn't your run of the mill car.
Even amongst BMW's it is special. Until
you own one the M symbol is just that,
a symbol. Once you experience the car ,
once you own one then you can truly see
how special the M3 series is. This is
one enjoyable car and a pleasure to
own. It is as reliable as an old Benz
but able to mix it up with some of the
best of today's sports cars. You can
actually live with this vehicle day in
& out. Maintenance is easily bearable.
If your can turn a few wrenches and are
resourceful in parts location you can
even keep cost cheap. There's also a
bevy of information on the net for it.
Overall a fantastic car. I love it.
A 13yr old car that still gets
compliments not to mention an offer at
least once a month on average. How
common is that?
