2002 BMW M3Review

Overall:

The E46 M3, in regard to timeless styling and performance is probably my favorite overall car around. When I bought mine it was in 2013 and I got a convertible with the SMG transmission. To my dismay this was the worst combination available. The convertible is a bit more squirrly, the SMG never works correctly and costs you 4 figures every 6 months when it needs fixed. With this said I recommend only looking at manuals and in the future I plan to have a manual coupe. It will eat tires It will hurt when the brakes need replaced It will get you speeding tickets It will also put a smile on your face everytime you turn the key. It will jump up to 100 then you think youre doing 70 and beg for more. When the off ramp says 30 you will be doing 60. This car is a beast, without question. And dollar for dollar you are hard pressed to do better! I have owned an e36, e46, and currently an e90. Although the e90 is faster the e46 is raw, it has character, it has its flaws. Its a vehicle you build a relationship with, as you learn more about the cars characteristics, its handling, you will love it more and more and it will treat you well. The sound system will ultimately need replaced as its garbage from the factory but who really cares when you can listen to the inline 6 scream? I had the Dinan free flow exhaust on mine and would highly recommend this tasteful upgrade. Dinan is a leader in M3 performance parts. Overall this car is a fantastic weekend driver, a fantastic track car, and a great summer car. I would not recommend for winter driving, but i would recommend for anyone who loves driving, or wants to rediscover their love for driving. After 3 years without an M car, prior to buying my e90, I longed for the feel, that smile, the thrill that the BMW M series brings. No others will compare for the same $. Will own a proper manual e46 again soon enough. Until then, im going to be redlining this V8 .

E46 M3 Is The Perfect Car — Love everything about this car. Very fast, and handles like a dream. A little hard to get the kids out of the back, but it is a two door car. The only major downside is that oil changes will set you back about $100.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very Fast and handles amazingly

Cons: Maintenance costs can be a little high.

Best I've Owned, True Driving Experience — If you drive, then you need to drive an M3. Everything else is just a waste of time. I drove mine everyday and enjoyed it every time. You will never want to drive anything else after you take one of these for a spirited drive!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything

Cons: None

Phenominal Car — I love this car for its enthusiastic driving capabilities and when I press the gas pedal, a grin will always ride across my face. This car is a neck breaker, always noticed and complimented on how great of a ride she is.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: AWESOME CAR, RAW POWER and BEAUTIFUL LOOKS

Cons: None excecpt, expensive.

Ultimate Driving Machine — A stunning car to own, it is fast and wild and turns heads everywhere you go. It still outshines the newer models with its lack of refinement and ability to put the FUN back in driving. If you have never driven one you have missed out on an unmatched driving experience.

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

Pros: amazing car

Cons: costs crazy $$ to upkeep

Bmw's Drive Nice.... — I have had this car since it was new. It now has just over 43000 miles on it. Which isn't to bad considering its just now 11 years old. My M3 for the most part was a second vehicle for me (not including my company truck that I drive weekdays during work hours) that I loved to take out on the weekends when it's just me or my wife and I. Not the most comfortable for the kids. I drive this car year round in all kinds of weather. With the traction control on boards it make doesn't skip a beat.

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

Pros: Fast, handles great and has been very reliable.

Cons: Maintenance can be expensive.

Someday I Will Have A Nother — acceleration is just the best thing i ve ever drivin. Handling the M3 is one of a kind no dents and the tire are in great shap as well. Not sure how it would do in the snow but what a summer car. If you dont like a quick and sporty car then this one not for you

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: love the car need to buy a truck

Cons: that i am saling it
