Didn't match Hype
By JPSinMiami on
1999 BMW M3 2dr Convertible
I must say that it is not the supercar
that all the reviews claim it to be.
Firstly, this car is waaayyyy to heavy
and you can feel it on heavy cornering
loads..it could use more power as has
been put into the newer M's but I
would be really happy with the 240bhp
if it trimmed a few pounds. This shift
mechanism was also a huge
dissapointment. Why manufactures still
make rubbery indecisive gates is
beyond me. Toyota got it right with
the Mr2 MKI why doesnt everybody just
copy it. Brakes and steering are among
the best I've ever driven. It's a good
car...just not the great car I thought
it would be. I shoulda saved 8k and
bought a Viggen convertible.
Steering and brakes, fit and finish.
Cowl Shake is absolutely appauling...I
can't believe that a car of this
caliber has this much shimmy. Traction
control (ASC) is annoying as hell to
people that know how to drive. Car
needs a 250 to 300 lb diet.
