Still the Best

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


Due to a lengthy involvement in "gentleman's " racing of sports cars, I am often enlisted by friends and acquaintances to find or evaluate the proper car for them, or for a family member. BMW has remained on the primary list of possibilities for some forty, consecutive years. My personal favorite (amongst worthy competition) for an enthusiast's road car is the BMW M3. Since its inception, following on the heels of the mighty CSL race champion, BMW has not put a foot wrong in the development of this package. Even in its current larger and heavier form it is race-course precise, extrordinarily well balanced, built to a quality level well beyond its price. A bargain, actually

Best Features

The Getrag shifter and its flawless handling of torque; The best engine of its type, ever built; the hand-built qualities that BMW refuses to relinquish.

Worst Features

If only BMW would provide the American market with the "Light" (weight) version, retaining only the air conditioning to be viable in this pampered driver's market.
