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


I purchased a 2008 BMW M3 Convertible with the DCT transmission two weeks ago. It has all options except extended leather and parking sensors. This car is amazing. It's ridiculously powerful and fast. If you feel like being an F1 Driver, you can shift with the paddles, if you're feeling lazy (or commuting), you can just put it in "D" mode, and let the DCT do the work for you. With the convertible hardtop, the car is quiet and rattle-free. The stereo is excellent, and the seats are very adjustable, supportive and comfortable.

Best Features

-DCT transmission -Build quality -Engine sound and power -Seats -Exterior styling -Sound system -You don't see one on every corner

Worst Features

-Gas mileage should be much better. Corvettes and Mustangs with similar power and weight get far better mileage. -Too easy to hit the windshield washers when trying to use the right shift paddle -NAV system is OK, but doesn't work as well as a portable unit. - iDrive takes a while to learn. -Ride quality with the 19" wheels is a little harsh on rough roads.
