Fun at First - Then the poor quality
By Frustrum on


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


Had a lot of fun with the top down, great acceleration and speed -- loved the SMG. Not enough space for all the bad. Twice transmission died on the freeway at 90 mph, flying in neutral. Manage to get to the side, tow-truck guy says "these have been dropping like flies." GPS never worked. Took into different dealers totaling 5 times, everytime they said it was fixed. It actually works now. Intermittent glitch on windows rolling up, still not fixed. Tire pressure light is on now and won't go away (tires checkout). Took to dealer and they said it was fixed, drive it away and light still on. Anyway, tons of other basic quality issues. Frayed steering wheel leather.

Best Features

SMG was fun when it worked. Not a coincidence they have pulled it from the new cars.

Worst Features

Some build quality. Seems to be meant to be leased for a few years and then traded.
