E46 M3 is a superior car
By JetBlackE46M3 on


2003 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


This is my second M3, but the first of
this (E46) generation. I am absolutely
stunned and impressed with the level of
performance that has been drawn from
this exceptional 3.2 litre inline 6
engine. I thought my old '97 M3 with
240HP felt quick, well this thing is
unreal. You can outrun 911's and most
of the muscle car crowd and look better
doing it. Handles amazingly well, rides
smoother than expected (even with my
19" wheels) and is an all around
wonderful car. I would change very
little about it except maybe make the
interior a little more "Mercedes like"
I guess.

Best Features

Stunning, ultra smooth and powerful 333HP inline 6 engine. Go cart like handling. Brakes that put a $125,000 911 Turbo to shame.

Worst Features

More stylish/quality interior. Better speaker quality for H/K stero upgrade.
