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


Looking for the ultimate 4-seat sports car? Here it is. Nothing else approaches it. Power, handling, & braking, plus style, comfort, quality, safety - it's all here in a big way. Manual transmission (or the clutchless manual SMG) keeps you in control, as a sports car should. Blazingly fast: only extreme, dedicated sports cars can overmatch it on the track, and yet practical & civil enough to be a daily driver. It's our only car! Wife drives it to work; I drive it on trips and just for fun. Appearance sleek but not over-the-top. Only drawback: harsh ride on crappy roads.

Best Features

Glorious engine: power down low, screaming fun when you rev it toward 8000 rpm. Great raspy sound. The feel of the steering wheel. The brakes. Interior layout, 4 comfy seats

Worst Features

Hmmm. Lose some weight? The car is heavy for a sports car at 3415 pnds. 200 pounds less and it would feel even quicker. (Not sure where that much could come off though w/o sacrifice) Offer a 4-door model!
