1999 BMW M3 2dr Coupe


Purchased from private party, very well cared for by last owner. Wanted a new model but cash strapped because last car totaled by idiot in truck. Rear wheel drive a must last car was front driver (supercharged pontiac) typical GM (poor quality and dealer service) 40K on M3 now and its been solid reliable and fun to drive. Installed 18" wheels, kumho tires, short shifter and aftermarket brake pads to eliminate brake dust.

Best Features

Like driving a go-cart, great handling, awesome brakes and utterly predictable handling. Does everything well and it the most fun in the twisty roads you can have. I've had a couple of so call sports cars look very suprised when you pass them.

Worst Features

Little down on power, bottom end torque is limited (drive it like you stole it to get the most out of it) Typical german interior (plain) sound system just OK. The famous brake light circuit defect comes and goes, nobody has found a total answer too that problem.
