Value for the money!

The smg transmission has great performance and provides great control and comfort while driving. Being able to use paddle shifters or the shifter comes in handy. The m3 is built very well and takes a lot of wear. To get such a performance and look for the money is amazing. I love the design in the car. The stitching in the steering wheel being blue and red is a great touch along with the shiny m3 logo in the door sill. Little things make the inside of the car. Although the seats are not as comfortable as the could be, they are very adjustable. Overall it's a great car and I love mine!

M3's are very special cars. They are clearly benchmark high performance cars yet they can be everyday drivers or race cars. The performance, roadability and comfort are a perfect mix. Driving anything else is a disappointment. The car I purchased was in superior condition and accurately represented by the owner. I flew to Chicago for the purchase and drove it 800 miles to my home. It was flawless.

Other than a few window rattles when their up I love this car. But then what's not to Love it is a M3 after all. Runs strong and still not to bad on mileage, sure super tight handling makes the ride a little rough but one has to expect that when you buzz around a turn like it wasn't even there. Top down lot's of fun and lot's of looks makes the cost worthwhile.

Best Performance Car Ever!

Got a 2003 BMW M3 in black with a gray interior for Christmas this year! I love it so far, and when I first got it I didn't know how to drive a manual, but I now know and it makes it a very fun car to drive. Its fast, fun, and stylish! It turns heads at school and I have been impressed with the 25 mpg that I have been getting because its a performance car... its not supposed to get good mpg. I would recommend this car to anyone and I am so glad that I got it because it has always been my dream car!

Best car I've owned

by from gaithersburg, md on February 20, 2012

No better convertible to own.. I've owned a 911 convertible which would be the only car that was as much fun to drive..

The ultimate performance car with the right muscle to curb weight ratio. It has the power to better the big boys and the tight quick handling to outride Japanese imports. This car is for a true driving enthusiasts as it constantly begs to be open up.

This is the car that I read about in reviews in all of the car mags. Looks great, is comfortable, plenty of room and goes like stink. Topaz Blue exterior with gray leather interior - six speed manual trans. Fourth BMW in the family at one time or another so I have experience. 90% of the electronics and electricals work which is pretty good for a ten year old BMW. I am not just happy, but two or three levels above that! I would and have recommended these cars to people looking for cars with style, performance and comfort.

This machine has to be experienced. I have driven 3 series for years and I finally went out for the M3. The handling and acceleration are, well, indescribable. The car sticks to the curves and can accelerate more than you can handle or you can relax and enjoy the ride. The SMG gearbox is for serious racers. I took the std 6 speed and was completely satisfied. I bought it in Germany and it really does the autobahn highway proud. The interior and exterior are sleek and stylish. the easy entry seat feature really helps getting in the back.
