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

Review

With SMG this car is not a slug. Also to the reviewer in the previous post... it is Getrag. Guess you need to be trained as well...

Review

This car is as good as it gets for someone who wants a performance vehicle that has a back seat. The SMG is easy to learn and is great fun. The car rides much better than my 2000 Boxster. The car has the performance of a 911 yet is more understated. The stereo is great. I love this car!

Review

i just got my m3 smg about a month ago. so far i have to admit it's a great car.. the ride is great.. the speed you can go into turns is phenomenal, the gear changing with the smg transmission is is awesome.. forget about stick shift.. and if you are stuck in traffic roll along in automatic.. the pick up is more then good enough if you want to go faster..in the automatic mode. the breaks are great and no fading even after a few hard brake downs from high speeds (+/-140mph to 65-80mph).. the ride is hard but hey, if you want a softer ride get a c-class mercedes benz or a lexus.

Best Car Ever

Ridiculous looks, ridiculous performance. It can be calm and docile when driving your mother-in-law, and after you drop her off you can drive circles around 911s and Corvettes.

M-3 smg is slug

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

Review

Car with SMG is a slug from standing start. Leaves line at 900 rpm to low for performance. Bogs and cannot spin tires until it gets RPM up, cannot be considered high performance. Other owners report same lack of starting line power with SMG. Car has terrible ride with 19" wheels seems like solid tires on smallest crack in pavement. Car doors are very hard to open, latch snaps back if not fully depressed. Saleslady though SMG was an automatic with manual shift, did not know what a Getdrag was. Very disappointed in BMW and dealer. Traded car at one month and 800 miles for C5 Corvette convert, very happy with Vette lots of power at any rpm.

This car is very fun to drive. I love how fast it takes off. It's not about how fast your car drives, but its about how fast you get to that speed. And I love it.

If you want M3, get this one.

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

Review

I have been driving my coupe for 9 months (weekend driving) and I still can't get over the handling and power. This car just wants to go fast! Don't listen to those who complain about harsh rides. If you want comfort, go for the 325/330. Engine problem is a concern, but so far mine runs without any problems. Exhaust note is a bit cheesy but it somehow gives the car a character. I have taken to the track, gunball racing etc etc... Since this will probably be the last M3 before Bangle's inhumane design shows up. Get it!

Not the Ultimate BMW
By Fastlane on 02/22/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

I've owned BMW's (540IA, 528IA) Porsche's (930, 944T), Shelby Cobra's (427SC, GT500's) and many other American muscle cars dating back to 1964. Although my 2002 M3 convertible with a 6-speed is fast and handles well I don't feel it is the "ultimate" BMW. As soon as I can dump my M3 that now sells for wholesale because of its reputation for blown engines I'll buy an M5 or Mercedes CLK 55 AMG.
