The thrill of a Bimmer
By JZ on


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


I am a person who believes a car no matter what make or model is meant to be driven not showcased. So I'll give you the driver's point of view. The car is a pleasure to drive. It is fast, it is smooth, and it can handle with the best of them. It's a mean looking car with a mean spirited personality. The tunnel vision you get at the higher RPMs is an amazing feeling. The security in the drive while pushing your car is unprecedented. Knowing a car can handle the high RPMs and the ability to stick to the road can make anyone feel like they are professional drivers. I own a manual, and Sports mode feels like you're driving a new ridiculously faster car. What a car to suit any occasion.

Favorite Features

Sports mode. Comfortable seats. Smooth transmision. High engagement point on the clutch. Mean looking. Secure feel of the drive. Light up stick. Light up RPM warning. Sound of the engine. Comfort of the drive. And especially always more power to keep it going at any speed.

Suggested Improvements

Seat belt placement. Range of the key. It would be nice to close all windows and sunroof with the key, if they can open then they should be able to close. A spare would be nice, just in case. Fully movable headlight system, I feel is important especially for high speeds. AWD would be interesting.
