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


Review

Ive been driving bimmers since 1984, a 325, a633, an M6, a 540 sport, and this M3 is the best of the bunch. Got the premium package with moon roof heated seats and all leather seats. Actually, this is my sons graduation present for next May. When I turn it over, I'll go pick up another one. Just too damn much fun to drive!!!!!


Best Features

The upgraded sound system is terrific, with the 6 disc player in the trunk.


Worst Features

Only improvement I can think of...Put an 8 cylinder in it. What a monster that would be.

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


Review

I love this car. I have had the last couple of revs of the M3 and it gets better each time. The SMG simply takes the mistakes out of fast driving. and my buddy that owns a porsche cab. is now jealous.


Best Features

SMG, SMG, SMG, What idiot trades this in for a Corvette?


Worst Features

how can you improve on perfection? Just wondering what is going to be in the next generation M3.

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


Review

0 problems in 6 months with sterling performance, wet or dry. I've owned performance cars, trucks and a roadster - but my E46 M3 takes the cake. It took almost 3 months to get it once the order was placed but when I saw it sitting ready for me to take her home, the wait was more than worth it. What other car comes close to this price point that: 1.lets backseat passengers take their legs with them 2. High Performance Rev-Happy Engine 3. Safety 4. "Fun to drive" doesn't even touch it.


Best Features

SMG - what else need be said Styling - can go to the opera or to the track Stealth - to those who casually glance at the car it looks like "just another 3 series" a true wolf in sheep's clothing The Feeling you get when you drive her


Worst Features

Overly soft Nappa Leather "scratches" easily. Would prefer an interior that is more M and less 3. Better Nav system (That's why I didn't order it) HK Upgrade adds a rattle feature in the passenger door speaker.

Review

I have been waiting over 8 years to own an M3.... I love My Car So..... much. If there were one thing that I could change. it would be to redesign the cup holder, you have 2 cup holders, but you can only use one.
