For the money,.... its a supercar. Phenomenal brakes, even supercars can only achieve. Solid chassis rigidity. Best stock suspension. Very decent power. One time had a run in with a Ferrari 360 Modena, we were neck to neck and it was a blast. Cannot buy a better all around package for the money. Great cargo room. Good ergonomics. Comfortable ride. Can't say enough.
Great engine with a strong powerband, never runs out of breath, pulls strongly. I got the 2004 SMG coupe silver gray with black leather and under 4000 miles on it. Fully loaded except for the cold weather pkg. The SMG did take a little getting used to, but boy it is a rush! The M3 will beg you to unleash it, will cajole you with sweet engine humming saying everythings OK, just floor the pedal. And at gas stations, you can look at the admiration in peoples eyes. Truly a cult car, a true jock with enough space for 4 adults and for practical day to day driving and spirited highway runabout.
Engine, SMG, Recaro seats with lumbar support, taut suspension that helps hug the road like nothing can. One of the very few cars that even Corvette drivers salute to.
Foldable rear view mirrors would be nice as also a slightly softer suspension to soak up the everyday potholes.
I have owned a modified '95 M3 and a '98...but this one is definitely the beastly-est of them all...and I look forward to every day when I can get behind the wheel and take it out on the back country roads. Yet, it is refined enough to go to any upscale social venue as well. Am curious to drive the new M3 with the competition package!
sporty look and handling..brushed aluminum trim...engine purrrrr....
I've waited 9 months to write this.
Thats right, I've put over 17K on it
already. Let's just say the heads are
still turning everytime you drive by!
There's never a boring moment in this
car. Performance and Handling inspire
extreme confidence. My wife gives me
a hard time because the only thing
people want to talk about is the "M".
buy it again in a heartbeat. Go to
the M driving school if possible. I
thought I was pushing my car towards
its limits on occasion...Wasnt even
coming close! Only set back is, you
cant drive another car without making
a comparison, and they just dont come
333 Stalions working overtime, all the
time! Suspension is incredible.
Orange interior lights.
Make the passenger side mirror able to
adjust to your own setting when car is
in reverse. Factory setting is too
low for me.
If you are thinking about getting a
Bmw M3 i believe you are thinking with
inteligence. 0-60 in 4.8 stock, think
about that. The handling is amazing,
its like a go kart. And to consider
how sporty it is the enterior is
wonderfull with the feel of the
leather and lumber heated seats to the
luxuries easy to use navigation screen
that is mind blowing. Also if you
order the 19" alloy/chrome wheels you
are set to go. If your passion in cars
is healthy then you will end up test
driving this ultimate driving machine
and never wanna get out of the driver
seat. In conclusion it handles like a
dream, has the get out of my way
apperance, while having the luxury
navigation, 19" wheels, all the 333
horses, heated lumber seats, memory
seating position, its distinctive
look, overall just amazing.
the only thing i can think of is the
way the door opens, you have to pull
up with your wrist but it doesnt
really seem to mind me, and just how
my window will make a little noise
when you close it and it slides up 1/2
