Best "pound-for-pound" car on the planet
By HRD CLSR on
2002 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)
Let me start by stating that I have owned this car for quite some time and still have trouble wiping the smile off my face when I drive it!! This is my 2nd M3. My first was a 97 estorel blue 5 speed. Although it was a wonderful car, it is a Honda Civic in every comparison except handling compared to current. I have never driven a car with such a wide power band. If you are anything above idle, you are flying. The car has amazing "pull" in every gear. Where I live in Fl we have a nice mix of city and highway driving which I enjoy daily. There is no playing field where this car is shy or timid.
I only have one complaint. The tires are ridiculous. I drive almost 20K miles a year and have to replace them about every 8-10 months. Kind of a pain at $400 a piece. That's what you get with a 333hp rocket I guess.
