SMG adds a new dimension to driving.
This is the most balanced high
performance car I have owned though my
2001 E39 M5 was more refined. The new
V-8 E90 M3 has a hard act to follow.
SMG II coupled to a fabulous inline
six cylinder engine.
Having to nitpick but even with the
Hardon Kardon stereo upgrade BMW could
learn a lesson from its competition as
the sound system has much to be
desired but I didnt buy an M3 for the
radio. BMW also takes a back seat to
Lexus in after the sale service.
I find reasons to drive this car! Only
600 miles so far, so still in
the "break in" period. Typical BMW
quality, but this thing is a rocket.
The car is simply made to be driven
fast. Only complaint is why on earth
BMW would build a $60,000 car and make
the alarm system, garage door opener
and 6 disc CD changer an "option....??"
But that's a small price to pay for a
great handling, truly fun car.
BMW handling time 10..!!!
Power, great Harmon Kardon sound system.
Make alarm, universal garage door
opener and 6 disc CD standard and not
options. Otherwise, LEAVE THE CAR

exhaust system yielded approx. 30 hp and 15
ft-lbs. I love this car.
