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


Review

Scare your wife. Scare your friends. Scare the guy next to you at the light in his C06. This car is frightfully fun to drive! My mother may never come to visit us again.

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


Review

BMW's SMG transmission is not ready for prime time. When it works, it's great fun. Unfortunately, it doesn't like to go into gear when its cold, cannot be worked by garage attendants, and has died suddenly (resulting in a tow)while cruising. Software upgrade to the computer made the situation worse. BMW has been disappointing in their response.


Worst Features

Don't expect the customers of $60,000 cars to be beta testers. BMW needs a great deal of work on customer service

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


Review

This is one of the nicest cars i have ever driven, In 2001 i bought an 1999 M3 coupe and i was very moved by the performance,styling and elegance, then in 2003 i traded in my X5 4.4 and got a brand new M3 convertible and i must say anything that BMW missed on the 1999 they fixed on this one, it has incredible throttle response and even better handling i must say great job on the new M3 BMW!!


Best Features

6 speed gearbox, vacuum i drive throttle

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


Review

This car is easily one of the best car out there if you want some luxury, 4-seater and a hell of a performance car. The Porsche 996 may even be a bit faster around the corners but it doesn't seat 4. The interior of the M3 is nicer than the 996. The exterior is much much nicer looking than the 996 with the possible exception of a GT3. I had the car for almost 2 years and I have yet to have even one minor defect that required me to go back to the service center.


Best Features

The engine, seat and its adjustments, steering wheel, the pedals.


Worst Features

Stereo, need more aluminum parts to reduce weight.

Review

This car is what BMW is all about. If you like to drive you will love it. Perfect power band, race car brakes, rock solid suspension. The only negitive thing I have to say is that the car isn't cheap. But remember, it is the ultimate driving machine.


Best Features

Harmon Kardon stereo is the best I've heard Styling, Styling, Styling!!
