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


Review

This car is extremely quick, fast,
smooth, and luxurious. I love the
SMG2 paddle shifters. Driving this
car is like being on vacation. I love
driving it every day to work (except
when it's snowing) and on long trips
on the highway. I can cruise
smoothly, or I can zip past and around
anyone whenever the need arises.
AWESOME!


Best Features

The SMG2 paddle shifters, combined with the 333HP engine and the awesome handling, make this one amazing car to drive.


Worst Features

No speed limits for M3 owners.

Review

Scare your wife. Scare your friends.
Scare the guy next to you at the light
in his C06. This car is frightfully
fun to drive! My mother may never come
to visit us again.

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


Review

BMW's SMG transmission is not ready
for prime time. When it works, it's
great fun. Unfortunately, it doesn't
like to go into gear when its cold,
cannot be worked by garage attendants,
and has died suddenly (resulting in a
tow)while cruising. Software upgrade
to the computer made the situation
worse. BMW has been disappointing in
their response.


Worst Features

Don't expect the customers of $60,000 cars to be beta testers. BMW needs a great deal of work on customer service

Review

This is one of the nicest cars i have
ever driven, In 2001 i bought an 1999
M3 coupe and i was very moved by the
performance,styling and elegance, then
in 2003 i traded in my X5 4.4 and got a
brand new M3 convertible and i must say
anything that BMW missed on the 1999
they fixed on this one, it has
incredible throttle response and even
better handling i must say great job on
the new M3 BMW!!


Best Features

6 speed gearbox, vacuum i drive throttle


Worst Features

NONE!!!

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


Review

This car is easily one of the best car
out there if you want some luxury,
4-seater and a hell of a performance
car. The Porsche 996 may even be a bit
faster around the corners but it doesn't
seat 4. The interior of the M3 is nicer
than the 996. The exterior is much much
nicer looking than the 996 with the
possible exception of a GT3. I had the
car for almost 2 years and I have yet to
have even one minor defect that required
me to go back to the service center.


Best Features

The engine, seat and its adjustments, steering wheel, the pedals.


Worst Features

Stereo, need more aluminum parts to reduce weight.
