What's up with the cup holders!
By RK on


2006 BMW M 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Picked up the car on March 30th. Have been driving a LOT to complete the 'break-in' period of 2000km. Have to change gears prior to 5500rpm due to this. The car starts to 'take-off' at 4000rpm and then it's time to change gears. I think I will love the accel from 4000rpm to the red-line at 8000rpm. This car hugs the road like a go-cart. No body roll!! Taking exit ramps designed for 50kph at >100kph without problems. This car handles like a gem.

Best Features

Road handling, grip, acceleration from 4000rpm onwards! Looks understated and I love that.

Worst Features

Do something with the cup holders. They are pathetic!! It would have been better not to have them at all! Very cheap build quality of the cup holders. Seems like they were made in the pre-industrial age. Very tacky... I am saddened.
