The almost perfect car
By dave thompson on


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


My 2004 M3 is a blast to drive, and gets appreciative looks from all walks of life. The smooth, hard-pulling I-6 engine, best-in-class suspension and aggresive styling are all worth the price of entry. The only gripes I have are the hard to view and hard to operate nav system, the fact that satellite radio is NOT an option in the top of the line nav-equipped models, top top-of-the-line Harmon Karden stereo is a joke, and a persistent short in the steering wheel radio controls.Power, cornering, driver's appeal and a sort of useable back seat. Plus, all its competitors list for thousands more. In fact, I have my name on the list for the new V-8 version coming in 2007.

Best Features

333 hp in-line 6 cylinder. World famous BMW suspension. Curb appeal.

Worst Features

Top of the line stereo is horribly weak. Nav system is counter intuitive. Satellite radio! More durable leather.
