2003 BMW M3 Coupe 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is my first BMW, and I have to admit it has been a long time coming. I have been desiring an M3 for about 15 years and have finally gathered the coinage for the purchase. When I picked up the car, there was not one flaw I could see. This is the best built and sportiest car I have ever driven or seen. I even get 26 MPG with this high-performance automobile! Truly amazing.


Best Features

The SMG II Transmission. It is an absolute blast and helps me greatly during those droning traffic hauls in Atlanta during the rush hours.


Worst Features

I really can't think of anything that would improve this car

2003 BMW M3 Coupe 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The perfect car....if you drive on a track. I have the SMG transmission and really don't care for it much. It is very notchy and not very friendly for mundane daily driving. If you drive very aggressively all of the time, this could be the car for you. If you don't, I would suggest one of the other 3 series cars....I've owned them as well and loved every minute of it.


Best Features

Xenon, handling, Looks


Worst Features

SMG transmission is no substitute for automatic.

2003 BMW M3 Coupe 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

After three months of waiting my M finally arrived and it didn't dissapoint. This is the most powerful vehicle I have ever driven, there is power in every gear and throughout the entire range of the tachometer. The response of the car is immediate and when pushed the car pins you to the drivers seat for an amazing ride. The interior is comfortable and supportive and the controls are functional and easy to decipher. In my opinion this is the most complete GT on the market.


Best Features

333 inline 6 cilinder engine. Excellent transmission. Great seats.


Worst Features

Wait time to get one at MSRP.
