Aside from having to wait close to a
year to get my hands on the exact M3 I
wanted, the men at the dealership
treating me like a naive little girl,
all the while failing to know as much
about the car as I did & my M3's cute
little habit of sometimes acting like a
newly saddled bronco (i.e., BUCKING), I
adore this car. I love the SMG & once
you get in sync with it you'll
be able to drive right through the
random/periodic bucking (..I saw
from an earlier review that I'm not
alone with the bucking, good to know),
heck, I look at it as a nifty little
challenge, Like racing a
thoroughbred, it's worth any mild
troubles to be able to fly with ease,
style & grace.
The exterior's elegant, sexy & reminds
me of a shark, a super fast Carbon
Metallic Shark. The shift paddles are
brilliant. The seats are
practically molded to my body, I mean
honestly there's nothing to dislike
about the car. Though, other drivers
seem to have issues with my M3...
Okay, maybe the bucking, but now that I
know it can happen, I'm ready & it's
kinda fun. The interior isn't built
to haul kids around (luckily, I don't
have any & even if I did, they wouldn't
be allowed in my baby) but it
fits me & 1 person nicely. An anti-cop
shield would be nice too.
This is my 4th BMW and this one is by
far the best of all. I would compare
it to a gocart with doors. Fun to
drive, but safe and comfortable with
all of the creature comforts like
navigation, heated nappa leather
seats, and sunroof. This car is a
bargain that seats 4!
Navigation is a must, 19" wheels give
a killer look!
Exhaust wine has to go. I paid $1000
bucks for the UUC RaspX midpipes to
eliminate the rasp note.
SMG adds a new dimension to driving.
This is the most balanced high
performance car I have owned though my
2001 E39 M5 was more refined. The new
V-8 E90 M3 has a hard act to follow.
SMG II coupled to a fabulous inline
six cylinder engine.
Having to nitpick but even with the
Hardon Kardon stereo upgrade BMW could
learn a lesson from its competition as
the sound system has much to be
desired but I didnít buy an M3 for the
radio. BMW also takes a back seat to
Lexus in after the sale service.
