Review of the 2001 BMW M3

  • The U.S. finally gets the M3 we've been hoping for. Its combination of speed, handling and razor-sharp good looks make the 2001 BMW M3 one of the world's most sought-after sports cars, rear seat and all.

If it had wings, it

Vehicle: 2001 BMW M3 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Picked up this car in Fort Lauderdale and drove back to New Hampshire. What a rush. Have had many cars and this is the best by far. Look forward to driving like never before. Had a number of people pull up to me on the highway and want to play and felt no urge to embarrass them, just kept driving with the top down and the tunes playing.




Great car, a little more

Vehicle: 2001 BMW M3 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Great car, but the sophistication of the OBDII (Computer) makes for alot of trouble with failed sensors. Also, got a bum transmission... BMW is standing behind all of this, I am just tired of taking it to the shop (once every other month!)




Incredible

Vehicle: 2001 BMW M3 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

This is all it is said to be by the car mags and more. It's a blast to drive - it's fun even on short drives to work. The space is practicle for kids in the back - and they love to be in it with the top down. Quality is first rate - I'm surprised that even after three years, there are no rattles or squeaks - it is as tightly put together as the first day. There are not any drawbacks as far as I'm concerned - except I wish BMW made something the size of a Suburban for the family car.




Awesome bmw

Vehicle: 2001 BMW M3 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

I have owned BMWs and other sports cars before before but this is the most awesome car I have ever driven. The handling is excellent. The noise of the soft top is almost non existent (no small thing if you have ever had a convertible). If your if your children are 14 years old or less and your friends are small, you will hear no complaints from the back seat.




My dream car-the ultimate m3

Vehicle: 2001 BMW M3 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

This is my dream car for many years. I have heard so much about the M3 in the past. Then the new 2001 M3 with 333 hp. came to this shore. I went and order two of them- one couple and one convertibe. I took the first available convertible in Imola red. I love the red, black, black combination. The other standard colors like silver, white, blue etc. are too common. It is as fast as a Porsche 911. Better than Boxter S which has less horse power, speed and handling features. Ferrari has a reason to paint most of their cars red!

Which of these is better buy, 1999 M3 2dr or 2001 330ci? I have seen that a used 1999 m3 can cost as much as nearly a 2002 or 2003 BMW 330ci. Thats pretty interesting despite that fact that the M3 is ...

And then after that new M3 comes out with the V-10, some chip company will come out with a chip to increase its horsepower too, right?And then I'll pose the same question: Why didn't BMW just put the ...
