1999 BMW M3 2dr Coupe


Had a very good experience with
this car. There are a few minor areas
of the car that almost demand upgrades
or replacements near or before the 50k
mile mark. Rear strut mnts are
rubber and sqeak upon failure. These
can be replaced 4 $80 + labor.
Clutch stop & short shifter need
replaced as origs. are too
tall & sloppy. Suggest UUC for
upgrds. Service is covered for
4yr/50k but I dread service @
both Dallas area dealers. This has been
the worst part of owning the M3. I
could not wait until the warranty
xpired so I could take it to another
BMW shop in Plano. It's too bad the
service is slow, unprofessional &

Best Features

Bold look, style & paint are superb.The M turns heads & attracts hot-shots w/cheap mustangs imports to racing. Pluses are HQ interior, superior constr. all around. Handling, acceleration & stereo put drivers into craving road trips for no reason.Hard 2 drive directly home on nice days.

Worst Features

I suggest BMW offer an M3 with an 8 cyclinder such as the M5 engine. I know the power is good for the 6, but I would like an 8 CYL optional M3. There are too many 300+ HP cars coming on the market that are cheap, but have 300+ HP. Ford and Pontiac & Nissan are examples.
