Commute to Work & Run at the Glen
By Melitameister on


1998 BMW M3 4dr Sedan


In my 60s and after driving economy family cars for many years, a friend gave me low down on E36 M3s. Found one cheap with 95k on odometer. Now, excited every time I climb in, even just for the short drive to work. Recently signed up for BMW Club "driver's school" at Watkins Glen and got to run total of over 100 minutes over two days hitting 130, sliding through corners at 80 and passing some hot cars. Will be doing that again! The feel of the road in this thing is so perfect you can't imagine the fun. Plenty of smooth power at all speeds. Quiet, winding country roads are heaven on earth. Shoot past cars when passing. Best way to have an affordable world class driving experience.

Best Features

Total control through corners. Family car & race car in one (four doors!). Strong, tight and built for rough handling.

Worst Features

Wish for even more power to hang with 'vets. Ride on bad roads a bit harsh for passengers.
