2004 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I just picked up my M3. I got it used with 8800 miles on it. What a beautiful piece of machinery. Stopping, accelerating, handling. Just amazing! The E46 body style is the best! If you can, buy one!


Best Features

6-spd SMG, navigation, 333 hp, heated seats, moonroof, etc. No iDrive!


Worst Features

In-dash 6 CD changer behind the navigation system??

2004 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Aside from a couple of minor issues with interior trim work, broken trunk latch, a new starter and a faulty warning light in the instrument cluster this baby is a head turner.The handling, acceleration and the sport option makes this the car to drive.


Best Features

The sport switch, the great comfy seats. Overall appearance.


Worst Features

There are no improvements that come to mind. Perhaps a little overall weight trim.

2004 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This car is nothing but responsive. Braking action is excellent. Engine is extremely reliable. Handling is solid. Definitely, best value for its class. Best looking BMW M3 design ever. In my opinion, BMW will never surpass the E46 body style for a long time to come!!! Last, on top of all, this could be a daily driver, no brainer!


Best Features

Sports and DSC (on/off) feature. Oil change is a breeze. Easy to maintain. Beautiful body styling.


Worst Features

Make "side vents" functional. Future conversion to cheaper fuel possible without sacrificing Horse Power?!

2004 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This vehicle has proven itself both in drive and in park. It breaks necks, causes people to stare and attracts attention thanks to its positively defined look which equilibrates muscle with class. However, when the car is in drive, it is a different story. Very quick, sounds great, not too many cars that can keep up with the 333 horses energizing this machince meant to race down the autobahn. Feels great, handles great, and loks great... what more can you ask from a car that gets from 0 - 60 mph in 4.5 seconds ?


Best Features

The SMG option sets this car aside from all other transmissions out there. Very user friendly yet proves the cars aggressiveness.


Worst Features

Not a whole lot of improvements can be made to an already perfect car. Maybe adjust the sound system a bit... or some cosmetic things like adding halo-lights like the 5 / 7 serious have to the headlights.
