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
Having owned Audi s and BMW x5,330d I finally bought my m3. What a fantastic motor. I went to Manchester via motorway, the other day and recorded 29.6 mpg at a steady 80- 90 mph. This is the best car, by a long way, I have ever owned, a pleasure to drive.
Raw power, and refined power wen needed. Best feature, the smile on my face.
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.
The sport switch, the great comfy seats. Overall appearance.
There are no improvements that come to mind. Perhaps a little overall weight trim.
I have been driving my M3 for the last 4 years. Truly amazing car. So responsive with exceptional handling. It is turning like on a rail I am not kidding. SMG is amazing once you get used to it - takes a while but once mastered you will love it. So much fun driving in the city. I am getting around 18/25 MPG not great but worth it. Lower the gear step on the gas boom you are there. It is rock solid in terms of reliability. No issues whatsoever. Only change oil twice a year around 100 bucks. E46s are probably the most reliable BMW model ever built. I heard M39s are also pretty reliable.
This is one of the best sports car ever. Definitely a head turner.
I am sad because it is getting older.
Acceleration, handling, style, reliability, SMG. Handling did I mention that already?
