Pros

This car has the engine that BMW should have put in all of the earlier M3s.

Cons

Buckle up this is a bronco!

Perfect Track Day Car Out Of The Box. — SMG was ahead of it's time, but not fully perfected. This is a go kart and handles like it's glued to the tarmac. Not much more you can bolt on to this car other than a turbo or supercharger kit. There's plenty of power on tap without modifications.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

2005 Bmw M3 Competition Coupe — All-around great car. I love to drive it. Would highly recommend. The ultimate driving machine. I cannot wait to get another one of the E90 series. If you're considering getting one, I highly recommend taking the test drive it will put you over the edge for sure

Handles like it's on rails, will smoke most things in its price range.

Cons

Fuel economy. Definitely not a Prius.

If You Like Cars Or Bmws In General, Buy One. — SMG can make you look like a rookie driving a manual if you're not used to it. On the other hand, you can put cream and sugar in your coffee while driving much easer than a manual. Coupe feels more solid than the convertible.

Pros

red imola seats, power, handling, looks, resale value, big money spent, big rewards given, m3 status is porsche's rival.

Cons

second cup holder is not useable with arm rest lowered. could use another 150 horsepower and torque, lol (ok being greedy with the extra power comment)

No Wonder Its Every Car Magazine's All Time Favorite Car — everything you have ever heard, everything you have ever read, everything, i mean everything is TRUE!!!!! very hard to pick out a flaw. amazing to drive, beautiful to look at, stylish, sexy, seductive. such a pleasure to drive. power is beyond satisfying. handles beautifully, stick shift, clutch feel and steering all live in harmony with each other. yes its expensive, even for a used car but its worth every penny. power never falls flat, stability at any speed in confident inducing, and the red imola interior adds to the sexual drive experience lol. i am truly in love with this car.

An Experienced, Smart, Fun Lady With Great Looks And Great Conversation — The good: Where to start, this care doesn't stop to amaze me. I just love it. An amazingly powerful engine that delivers more than 100 hp per liter without the need of forced air induction. The car is and feels very fast. Brakes are amazing. These are the competition package ones, so I don't know about the other versions. The suspension is extremely well balanced for comfort and sportiness. Again, this is the competition package which is a bit harder than the regular one. SMG transmission got some time to get used to but I love it.But that love doesn't extend to other manufacturers'. My Gallardo's eGear is not as good, in that one I would prefer a regular manual transmission. Looks: it is still a very elegant and modern look. The bad: It could lose some pounds. The navigation system sucks. The original mp3 player doesn't show the tracks names. Bluetooth only works with some Motorola phones.

Awesome Vehicle Under $25,000 — I love the handling of this car. I took it up to the blue ridge parkway a few months ago and was able to drive around 60 in 3rd on all but the sharpest turns. If you can find one that's a few years ago with less than 60K miles it is well worth the investment.

Bottom Line Fandabbydosa — performance 345 bhp 0 - 60 4.8sec i've had 182mph and its limited estimate 210mph de-limited build quality only the best appearance carbon black convertible grey leather, heated seats, full electric everything, climate control, sat nav built in, dvd players, smg tiptronic with 10 different gearbox and suspension settings and launch control (wow) cost- ouch over a 1200 pound for 4 tyres 57,000 pound new, 21 to gallon best if drive it like it made of glass 700 pound a service but nothing ever goes wrong. fun factor- becareful with the throtle it just sits and spins on the spot if ya floor it off the line without launch control. slippy and slidy great for drifting but watch the money burn from your tyres. tyre need changing every 10,000 miles at best driving normaly without the drifting.

Best All-round Fun Affordable Car! — looks sexy, fast acceleration amazing build quality and most fun engaging car i have ever owned. the biggest downside about owning the car is definately the cost of maintenance of the car...it gets pricy when having to do the service intervals. Also it has to use a special type of synthetic oil that ONLY BMW dealerships have a hold of so they monopolize the price of that!

The acceleration, braking and handling are great in the M3. It is a ton of fun to drive, but you need to be able to do more then take the kids to soccer practice to really enjoy all it offers. Read More
