2005 BMW M3 Coupe 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This car has surpassed all my expectations. It is quick, agile, nimble, powerful. It will surpass any challenges the streets of the US have to offer while beating most other cars on the road, but the M3 does it with confidence and a breath taking design that everyone compliments.


Best Features

The road handling ability along with the smooth and efficient power.


Worst Features

Could be a little more quiet (engine noise)

2005 BMW M3 Coupe 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Exotic car performance from the inline 6, sophisticated interior design and comfort, and sharp, intelligent lines and curb appeal, make the M3 one of the best cars out there in any price range.


Best Features

Engine, handling, interior design.


Worst Features

Please do not change this car. It is perfect.

2005 BMW M3 Coupe 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This car has impressed me in every detail and option. I ordered it basically fully loaded, and I am thrilled with the Competition Package. The only setback I have to the CP is the removal of Cruise Control due to the special steering wheel. However, the car handles extremely well, and has very fast acceleration, so who needs cruise control anyway. The seats and interior are perfectly designed, and the exterior is remarkably sharp. Definitely a head turner!


Best Features

The Competition Package, based on the Europe-only 2003 M3 CSL, includes 19" wheels, cross-drilled front rotors at 13.6", and a more direct steering ratio.


Worst Features

Cruise control function back on the stering wheel is my only suggestion. Gas milage is not the best, but what can you expect. Other than that, the car is perfect!

2005 BMW M3 Coupe 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Amazing performance, engine and supspension tuning come close to pure magic. Agressive styling make it best looking Bimmer out there, upgraded seats are fabulous, can fit to any torso. Exhaust sound is raspy, goofy sounding. Ride at low speed is busy, jiggly, smooths out as speed increases. A scalpel in a world of axes, makes you smile every time you drive.


Best Features

Clearly one of the 6 cylinder engines on the market, more than 100 HP per liter yet docile and flexible. The supension tuning is pure BMW art, sharp turn-in, compiant, corners fast and flat. Gorgeous style with the performance just short of a race car.


Worst Features

Exhaust, unique to the US model, is restrictive and has a strange sound. Aftermarket "fixes" are expensive. Nervous suspension at low speeds--may be price to pay for on road razor like performanc but believe some of the jiggle could be tuned out. First to second shift, tough to be smooth, ratios.

2005 BMW M3 Coupe 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This car is by far the best performance car for the money...333 HP and if put a Dinan kit, although why would you, then you have even more power. Corners great, ride is like riding on air and the power is exhilirating...nothing like an M car...The M3 is truly a thrilling car to drive!


Best Features

6-speed manual, design and performance.


Worst Features

Seats do get a little stiff after awhile, but that is insignificant.
