Don't Buy M3 Conv.-Noisy top, unreliable
By Randall on


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


Unreliable car, sometimes does not start. Dealer needed 5 visits to figure out it was a faulty key, but I still have my doubts. Fuel economy is horrible, 16 mpg in the city only! Car engine stalls when parking and turning wheel to park. The convertible top is very noisy when top is up and windows are up, visited dealer three times until they did something about, it and still its not quiet. If only BMW could provide the quality that the japanese put in their cars, things would be great!

Best Features

Great looks, girl catcher, fast, status symbol, excellent engine at high speeds, good brakes when hot, solid build but squeaky, rattly top.

Worst Features

Retractable hard top, improve mpg, make transmission less noisy when disengaging clutch. Dealer training, they suck, they say any complaint is normal operation, lazy and incompetent, especially in the Miami area.
