The Ideal High-Performance Car
By Rob in Great Neck NY on
2003 BMW M3 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)
This car is fantastic. Top-notch
performance: acceleration, handling,
braking. Great looks. Very comfortable
and smooth. Can be driven
very smoothly or very aggressively.
How many other high performance cars
have a back seat that can hold two 6'
3" adults comfortably. I
feel like I'm on vacation every time I
drive this car. Downshift with a flick
of the SMG2 paddle, hit the
accelerator, and smoothly zip past and
around any car going too slow. 155mph
top speed. Drives
very well in rain and light snow, with
help of limited slip rear differential
and DSC (which I turn off when the
pavement is dry). I love the heated
seats in cold-weather.
SMG2 works smoothly and fast with 5
automated and six manual modes.
