I have owned 58 cars - this is the very best - first drove a friend's new one in 1994 and vowed I'd get one, one day - well I am fortunate to own such a magnificent beast! The grin factor is huge - I always enjoy starting her up , letting her warm up - then giving more and more stick - and then there's still the Sport button - wow what could a person want? Looks good in an understated way - just the way I like it - best thing I ever did on the motoring side of things! Find myself wondering what I could replace it with - nothing comes to mind!
Performance - Strong subtle styling, smooth turbine like motor that doesn't seem to run out of breathe. I think the fuel consumption is quite acceptable given the performance
A wife button - detune the motor, and soften the suspension so she can confidently go to the shops in it! She is a bit scared of it!
Aside from a couple of minor issues with interior trim work, broken trunk latch, a new starter and a faulty warning light in the instrument cluster this baby is a head turner.The handling, acceleration and the sport option makes this the car to drive.
The sport switch, the great comfy seats. Overall appearance.
There are no improvements that come to mind. Perhaps a little overall weight trim.
This car is nothing but responsive. Braking action is excellent. Engine is extremely reliable. Handling is solid. Definitely, best value for its class. Best looking BMW M3 design ever. In my opinion, BMW will never surpass the E46 body style for a long time to come!!! Last, on top of all, this could be a daily driver, no brainer!
Sports and DSC (on/off) feature. Oil change is a breeze. Easy to maintain. Beautiful body styling.
Make "side vents" functional. Future conversion to cheaper fuel possible without sacrificing Horse Power?!
