2004 BMW M3 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


I special ordered my m3, my first bmw, and my last. It's been serviced 11 times in the past year, mostly for problems with the smg. the smg is the most overrated transmission ever and should not be sold until perfected. It's sluggish in first, sometimes choppy, and most recently just stalled completely. it had to be towed back to the dealership to replace the relay...again.

Best Features

it looks great, and when running smoothly is a lot of fun. i just seem to be driving the service dept. loaner car more than my m3.

Worst Features

perfect the smg or don't offer it as an option.
