2002 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I absolutely love my M3. Upgraded suspension, lowered 1.5", and installed 19" ZCP wheels (forged BBS).


Best Features

Styling, handling, power, hydraulic rear windows, SMGII.


Worst Features

Slightly tighter steering ratio, better cold air intake stock, thicker header walls to help eliminate "rasp".

2002 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Got the silver 6-speed manual and this car is a total blast. Best car I've driven. Massive power and torque at every gear. Have even started the car in 2nd gear. Handling is awesome and even grips wet roads. 60 mph cornering an exit, yeh baby!! This bad boy does not even slip. way to go DSC!!!! Worth every penny cause you get what you paid for. Car looks damn good too. If you dont want to do any serious driving, this ride is not for you; get a 325!!


Best Features

Looks, power, handling, interior.


Worst Features

Get rid of the factory/Harman and go with Bose. I've heard much better audio. Throw in a full spare; and also certain things like power and heated seats should be standard.

2002 BMW M3 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I join in all the hyperbolic praise that has been heaped on this car. It is fast, beautiful, handles tremendously, and has brakes that will suck your eyeballs out of your head. Here are the negatives: the convertible top is aggravating; it rattles and squeaks incessantly, and dealers don't know how to fix it. (The solution: leave it down!) The suspension is a bit harsh for daily driving on rough roads. Blind spot when the top is up is pretty bad (The solution: leave it down!). With the windblocker in place, you can't use the back seat. (The solution: leave kids at home!). Biggest gripe: EVERYONE wants to race you - annoying, although you can beat them all.


Best Features

Looks -- constantly gets compliments and stares. It's almost embarassing with the top down. Power is phenomenal and addictive. Handling too -- you search for corners to slide around. Mileage is decent -- I average 20.4 mpg combined. Interior is comfortable -- seat heaters are toasty and fast.


Worst Features

Lack of one-touch-up windows (other than driver window), odd since the 330 has them. Slightly less-stiff suspension maybe. Fewer rattles in the convertible top. Better exterior door handles (they feel cheap). Better stereo reception (XM/Sirius would fix this).
