2001 BMW M 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I fell in love with this car the day I saw it, and I am still in love with it. However, I did encounter as well endless quality problems... anything from door locks, seat belt, noises to fuel pump and main computer... Have been in and out of the dealership every month and had to tow 3-4 times. Having this car out of warranty can kill you. On the other hand, the shape of it is unique: I am sure a few years down the road it will become a classic, especially considering the small number of 2001/2002 produced.

2001 BMW M 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Performance is outstanding but quality
issues plague this car (and everyone
else I know with the Z3/M has issues
too). Don't know why no BMW owners
will step up to the workmanship &
quality issues. My son's Hyundai was
bought at the same time, has twice
them miles on it and never sees the
dealer. I was a regular. Glad the
lease is over and it's gone. Going
back to Japanese sports car or
Corvette.


Best Features

In a word, performance. The engine and drivetrain are quite good. Love the styling.


Worst Features

Fix the locks so they don't break frequently. No plastic rear window. Get themotor to not stall when cold. Put in speakers that don't blow out when you breath on them. Produce car with defect-free paint. Design out ratty, tin can exhaust sound when you step on it -- add deeper throat

2001 BMW M 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

From a price/fun ratio this is THE
perfect car. What can go faster,
quicker for $35K? Nothing without
nitrous. The car fits like a glove and
flies like a fighter jet. First time
drivers of the M will drop their jaws
at the performance.


Best Features

Engine, exhaust, engine, suspension, engine, aesthetics, engine.


Worst Features

Some insulation behind the dash for some creaking, glass rear window, that's it.

2001 BMW M 2dr Roadster (3.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I had a 2.5 Z3 for a few years and put
everything Dinan on it for more power.
I asked the dealer what was the best
year. they responded with "the 2001 M
Roadster". I have been looking for over
a year for one ( I see once people get
one, they won't let go) I finally
picked up one at a Volvo dealer (of all
places) I LOVE this car!!!! it has to
be the best ride I ever had. I just hit
40 and will never grow up. I wanna be
burried in this car (ha-ha).


Best Features

THE POWER!!!

LEAVE IT ALONE!!
