Rush of Seratonin and Dopamine driving this car !!!
By m3matt on
2003 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)
This car is extremely powerful and fast for what it is.
For a 3.2L 6 cylinder car this thing has more power and much faster than my 1995 Corvette with a 5.7L V8 that i used to own.
Very comfortable ride that handles awesome.
You can take turns and bends at very high speeds and it hugs the corners and feels very stable at high speeds.
I have the 6 speed manual which I love.
Fastest I took it up to was 130 mph in 6th gear and still some room on the tach.
the European models can top out close to 180 mph.
US models have a restrictor on the somewhere around 140 or so but can override with a chip.
Does use a bit of gas depending on driving habits but who cars when your having fun.
One is the sport mode.
It will throw you back in your seat.
Also the rush you feel when you are cruising at 40 mph or so, hit the sport mode, drop it down a gear and watch the speedometer climb and feel the car take off.
For the year I think this car was way ahead of its time and would still even give alot of newer cars a run for their money.
For example the sporty looking vent grills on the side front fenders.
The M3 is the first car I remember seeing do that.
Now you see alot of stupid cars in the year 2014 such as Kia Optima, Ford pickup trucks, Ford focus, and a few other crappy cars that stared to put that on their front side fenders.
