Almost perfect
By Moby Dick on


1999 BMW M 2dr Convertible


Have had no significant problems in
over 72,000 miles of ownership...
however, passenger seat belt is
designed to accomodate a child seat
(which numerous stickers in the car
warn you not to use)and belt locks-up
if pulled out too far...not good when
wearing heavy winter clothing. Rear
view mirror is badly located and too
big...blocks right front vision in
turns and off ramps...I replaced it
with a smaller one.
The factory clear coat paint job chips
extremely easily...car looks sand-
blasted within months.

Best Features

Power/acceleration/Power and Power. Not to mention Power! Good Looks and slot- car handling.

Worst Features

Clear coat paint job is vulnerable to easy chipping, Automatic Traction Control is defeatable - that's good - because it gets in the way of aggressive driving. Mount Rearview on dash (like old MGs) to improve forward visibility
