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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

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...


Suggested Improvements

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.

Review

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!


Favorite Features

Navigation is a must, 19" wheels give a killer look!


Suggested Improvements

Exhaust wine has to go. I paid $1000 bucks for the UUC RaspX midpipes to eliminate the rasp note.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

SMG II coupled to a fabulous inline six cylinder engine.


Suggested Improvements

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.
