1998 BMW M 2dr Convertible


This car is fun to drive. It is a
blast. The handling is terrific,
acceleration is WOW. It is my wife's
car and fortunately she goes out of
town occasionally and I get to drive it.
It has been in for electric seat
trouble, the motor burned out and is
welded to the frame, so the whole seat
frame has to be replaced. The air
conditioner has a hole in the
evaporator canister (not sure if right
term). Costs 1,100 to fix. An oxygen
sensor had to be replaced. The seats
dont fit tight as a result they shift
slightly when cornering.

Best Features

I am six eight so I can only drive it with the top down. It accelerates like mad. The radio gets louder as the wind noise increases. It gets looks, even after five years.

Worst Features

make the thing so it isn't so expensive to work on, ie, don't wield a motor to the seat frame!!! of course, make it to fit a six eight, 250lb guy.
