With two kids and the urge to have a
sports car, the M3 convertible brings
together incredible performance, tons
of fun, BMW safety and room for the
kids in the back. I hate to sound like
a commercial, but taking my daughters
to school with the top down (which they
love) or stretching it out on a country
road, this car does it all. I can fit
my golf clubs in the trunk. Inside the
cockpit, the BMW engineers lay
everything at your fingetips. I
strongly recommend the SMG
transmission, its the only option you
really need. Although it holds its
value well, you may want to get one
used with low mileage to save the 7-8K
hit you take in the first year.
The SMG transmission allow you to shift
flawlessly and with incredible speed.
It also lets those in your family who
prefer an automatic to drive the car
The sound system is ok, but not up to
snuff with the rest of the car. Skip
the Harmon Kardon and spend money with
a local outfitter to get your sound.
