1999 BMW M3 2dr Convertible
Review
Bought my '99 M3 Convertible 5 years ago (w/25k mi) and still in love; went thru Camaro, Mustang, Vette, Jag then decade w/3 Porsches. Yes the German rides all demand high maint. costs but "Ultimate Driving Machine" is correct for this M3. Nothing is more agile thru turns, it's extremely fast off the line and 2-lane road passing is effortless with breathtaking torque and speed available from 55-90 in a nanosecond. The braking capability is far more pure & sure than any other car I've owned. Top up driving is as quiet as a coupe, and unlike many convertibles, top down is a total joy, not punishing. 2 adults can be comfortable in the backseat for an hour or more. Best all around!
Favorite Features
Unmatched handling and joy of driving; faster than hell & stops on a dime; the Teutonic craftsmanship continues to hold up very well (last M3 convertible made in the Black Forest). It remains the only fun, top down luxury race car comfortable for 4 adults this side of Aston Martin. Elegant looks.
Suggested Improvements
Alas, manufactured before glass in conv. windows. It will demand a $2500+ new top eventually. Would have reduced significant ($1000+) tire costs to have same size wheels front & rear for rotation. 2 sets of golf clubs & 2 med. bags is absolute trunk max but it's a sports car.
