My Four-Wheeled Soulmate
By Ed Kramer on
2006 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)
Best car I've ever owned. Have about 1800 miles on it so far. Terrific styling, excellent fit and finish. Silver exterior with black Napa leather, aluminum trim, xenon headlamps. Love the SMG. Harmon Kardon sound system, NAV, all good. Unalloyed joy to drive. Handling is superb. Power to spare. Zero body roll. Well-mannered in town, a thrill to drive on twisty highways, carving through corners like a laser. The car is everything I'd dreamt it would be.
Excellent adjustable seating. SMG was easy to learn. Good ergonomics on all controls. Thank God, no iDrive to have to contend with. Great looks exteriorly and interiorly.
In auto mode, the shifts are not as smooth as I'd like, but only minorly so.
