2008 BMW M3 Coupe 2dr Coupe (4.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I've had an E36 M3 & '00 M5. This car is significantly better. The ride & comfort are the best I've seen with such performance. Not the fastest car out, but the balance of power, ride and awesome handling make it a fantastic package. Top down motoring is amazingly smooth & wind protected, yet when you want it, the sound from the loud pedal is better than the killer sound system! I love the ride adjustability & being able to cruise smoothly or flog it on a moment's notice. It's hard NOT to smile while driving this car!


Favorite Features

Motor, handling, EDC, looks, 19" wheels, sound system, keyless remote, retractable hard top, sound of motor @ 5k+ w/ top down! 4 yrs of free maintenance is pretty sweet too.


Suggested Improvements

Small back seat leg room & trunk space but that's expected with the retractable hard top. Still better than a 911. Sat nav is better, but still not as good as Lexus, Acura, etc.

2008 BMW M3 Coupe 2dr Coupe (4.0L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Owned 02 325 and 07 335i, I thought was the best BMW car made today. Went to the dealer for a service check walked out with an 08 M3. Why? The 08 M3 can go from 335i to Animal mode with a press of a button. The engine noise, throttle response, the handling, the 19" wheels with the billet brakes. They made everything in the car functional nothing cosmetic. Imola Red with the sunroof (CF roof was nice but my wife likes sunroof and that was the breaking point to purchase). The evil looks that every policeman gives you is priceless. Do not test drive the M3 if you don't have the money.


Favorite Features

MDrive, quality leather, iDrive, 19" wheels w/ billet brakes, aggressive body style, classic ///M badging. Speed, speed, and more speed. All natural! My favorite part is after this comment when I go drive! Have a nice day!

Review

I owned E46 E36 E30 M3s and this is by far the quickest and best M3. I love the engine/exhaust noise when you hit above 5000rpm. You can't go wrong with this car.


Favorite Features

High revving engine, MDM, M steering wheel, exterior looks.


Suggested Improvements

Nothing I can think of.

Review

As smooth and easy to drive as a regular 3 series. Clutch is light and easy in stop and go. In M Mode it is a beast. The difference is night and day. More power than most will need. Putting racing pads on would make it a track ready car out of the box. Only problem, needs a bigger gas tank. Overall, the best car I have ever driven or owned. Amazing trunk space for a coupe! 2 six footers will fit in the back seats comfortably. Great car. Great build quality. No regrets.


Favorite Features

M Mode, HiFi stereo.


Suggested Improvements

Bigger gas tank. Smoother stick, it's a little notchy (no big deal). Heads up Display.
