M3 competition package

2005 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Overall, it is a great car. It looks as good as it performs. Solid performance thanks to the competition package. The competition package is an alternative for those who don't want to get aftermarket upgrade but want more for their M3. However, there are some electrical problems with the radio and the bluetooth connection for cell phone; not all cell phone can connect via bluetooth. The gas mileage is not bad. Got about 300 miles per a tank, 65%highway and 35% highway. If driving locally, a full tank will only give 220 miles. The exterior looks great all around. Need a wing spoiler to complete the aggressive look. The front seats is great. Back seats are very comfortable.

I love the car but I have had some problems. It is a great performing, great looking car with lots of power and superb handling. The stock tires are not too great so I switched to Bridgestone SO3 and the difference is incredible.

Almost, but not quite.

Review

This car is a dream to drive, especially with the SMG transmission. However, one look at the interior shows that even the M3 is sadly dated. The 2005 model needs a better interior, especially when the asking price is in the $55,000 range. For example, the model I test drove only had a single disc CD player, no CD changer, no Nav system, and no satellite radio, but the dealer wanted $58,000 for it. It is a fun drive, but the Mercedes C55 AMG is a better, more complete package for the same amount of money.

Review

Moved to this car from a Porsche 911. This is as fun to drive, equals or betters the Porsche in performance and is far more practical. I love the car. This is my 6th BMW and every one has been a high quality car with almost no problems.

The Perfect Car

Review

The best all around car for the money in the world. Handles like a go-kart, but reasonably comfortable ride. Even Subies and Vettes back down. People open their windows and strike up conversations at traffic lights. Children wave, old people smile, young women want you, young men want to be you.

Review

This car is the best blend of performance and comfort that I have owned. There is a always a support of power available to the driver to maximize safety and handling. The braking capacity of the car is quick, precise and progressive. Driving this car in the U.S. at legal speed limits does not labor this vehicle at all. There is always a large surplus of acceleration and braking to maximize the driving performance, safety and comfort not only to the driver but also to the passengers. The interior design is clean and classic that offers excellent visibility, and all the features and ammenities that any passenger and driver would require. Instrumentation is direct, simple and not over bearing.

Review

If you like fast then you will love this car, or should I say beast. This car begs to be driven hard. The tach hits 7000 rpm so easily that you don't even realize you are doing 80 mph within seconds. As the car shifts through the gears you can feel the raw and savage power of this awesome engine pulling you back into your seat. There are very few cars that will attempt to mess with you and if they are foolish enough to, then they always wind up in my rear view mirror. The car handles unbelievably. Wherever you point it, it goes. The traction control has helped me out a few times when I really pressed it. The brakes are extremely responsive, you can stop on a dime. This is a great fun car.

Review

I use to have a 2001 X5 and it was a great car, but compared to my new 2005 M3 it stands not chance. Love everything about this car except for the exhaust sound. I need to do something about that. So far the cars been holding up like a rock.

Don't Buy M3 Conv.-Noisy top, unreliable

2005 BMW M3 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Unreliable car, sometimes does not start. Dealer needed 5 visits to figure out it was a faulty key, but I still have my doubts. Fuel economy is horrible, 16 mpg in the city only! Car engine stalls when parking and turning wheel to park. The convertible top is very noisy when top is up and windows are up, visited dealer three times until they did something about, it and still its not quiet. If only BMW could provide the quality that the japanese put in their cars, things would be great!
