2002 BMW M3 Coupe 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Before you buy, be sure to research the service histories of these cars. Model year 2002 had a series of engine recalls that are warranty items (bearing service), but necessary fixes. Be sure they've been done and ask dealer to provide service history to prove it. If buying used, I do not recommend this model year to be purchased from a non-BMW dealer or private owner unless VIN proof can be provided that the recall service has been completed. Engine failure, while rare, is catostrophic. That said, I purchased mine from a BMW dealer with all service documentation and have had nothing but miles and smiles of glee!


Best Features

Exterior design (w/optional 19in wheels) is both modern and classic. Subtle, muscular shape (aluminum hood power bulge and flared fenders) and classic side "gills" reflective of classic 3.0 early 70's coupe.


Worst Features

Lose some weight baby! It seems all car makers are going crazy with horsepower - and this car has plenty - but weight keeps going up!!!! The power to weight ratio has the biggest impact on performance, but only big power numbers make the marketing material. Good Luck and safe driving to you.

Review

I absolutely love my M3. Upgraded suspension, lowered 1.5", and installed 19" ZCP wheels (forged BBS).


Best Features

Styling, handling, power, hydraulic rear windows, SMGII.


Worst Features

Slightly tighter steering ratio, better cold air intake stock, thicker header walls to help eliminate "rasp".

Review

Got the silver 6-speed manual and this car is a total blast. Best car I've driven. Massive power and torque at every gear. Have even started the car in 2nd gear. Handling is awesome and even grips wet roads. 60 mph cornering an exit, yeh baby!! This bad boy does not even slip. way to go DSC!!!! Worth every penny cause you get what you paid for. Car looks damn good too. If you dont want to do any serious driving, this ride is not for you; get a 325!!


Best Features

Looks, power, handling, interior.


Worst Features

Get rid of the factory/Harman and go with Bose. I've heard much better audio. Throw in a full spare; and also certain things like power and heated seats should be standard.
