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


Review

Awesome! We just picked it up last week and it is better than expected. Traded an 04' Z4 3.0 and the new M3 just smokes it! Great car, performance overload, and BMW quality and service.


Favorite Features

Speed, nicely designed auto-top, transmission is very easy to shift, interior is sport intensive, has every other feature you would expect in a top of the line street legal BMW racecar.


Suggested Improvements

It rocks, but maybe make the keys have a better transmission rage for locks, and trunk release.

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


Review

This car has surpassed all my expectations. It is quick, agile, nimble, powerful. It will surpass any challenges the streets of the US have to offer while beating most other cars on the road, but the M3 does it with confidence and a breath taking design that everyone compliments.


Favorite Features

The road handling ability along with the smooth and efficient power.


Suggested Improvements

Could be a little more quiet (engine noise)

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


Review

Exotic car performance from the inline 6, sophisticated interior design and comfort, and sharp, intelligent lines and curb appeal, make the M3 one of the best cars out there in any price range.


Favorite Features

Engine, handling, interior design.


Suggested Improvements

Please do not change this car. It is perfect.

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


Review

This car has impressed me in every detail and option. I ordered it basically fully loaded, and I am thrilled with the Competition Package. The only setback I have to the CP is the removal of Cruise Control due to the special steering wheel. However, the car handles extremely well, and has very fast acceleration, so who needs cruise control anyway. The seats and interior are perfectly designed, and the exterior is remarkably sharp. Definitely a head turner!


Favorite Features

The Competition Package, based on the Europe-only 2003 M3 CSL, includes 19" wheels, cross-drilled front rotors at 13.6", and a more direct steering ratio.


Suggested Improvements

Cruise control function back on the stering wheel is my only suggestion. Gas milage is not the best, but what can you expect. Other than that, the car is perfect!

This woulh have been a great car if it was not with the SMG transmission. SMG lot of lag and does not change gear in time.
