    Amazing Car, A Must Have If You Love Power And Driving. — This car is everything you could ask for, it will do anything you want it to, easy to work on and fun to drive. Very reliable and is never in the shop, customizing is very easy on this car, anything you could imagine, you could put on or into this powerful engine.

    Pros: Great head turning car, Great Handling power and control. Great weekend driver weather that be on the track or going to work. Will stop on a dime or maneuver you through any situation. Only in the shop for routine Maintenance.  

    Cons: Not good for car seats, oil and gas is pricy

    Hugs Dry Roads , Even Fairly Rough, (crpss Brpnx Expressay), — This is a really cool looking head turning and very fun to drive, solidly built automobile, The stereo needs a speaker upgrade though , as the Harmon Kardon are junk (BSW papercones are good), The loud muffler is too loud to hear the radio so I went to stock with no loss of power, Comfortable front seats and a very solid build

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

    Pros: Handling, Power, Fast Shift,Convertible Top

    Cons: Harmon Kardon is very poor at volume, Garage in Winter, Controls are not intuitive.

    Amazing Car — I have owned and drive BMW's for most my life but the M product they offer is amazing. The car gets a lot of looks by onlookers and compliments. The maintenance on this vehicle is affordable for the average BMW enthusiast.

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

    Pros: Drive like new

    Cons: None

    Gogo's M3 — Best car ever own, it has lots of power and torque, it looks great too. Handles like a dream. I doesn't need constant repairs, but when it does it costs a lot. The fun factor is WOW, greatest car of all time :D

    Pros: Pure power and awesome handling

    Cons: Huge repair costs.

    A Blast To Drive And Easy To Live With — As a whole the car is great it has plenty of get up and go and looks good while doing it. Its a geat daily driver and does well on gas for how hard i drive it, braking is great, never at a need for anymore breaking. will put a smile on your face every time you open that s54 up.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great all around sportscar

    Cons: The new 1 series M

    Great Car For A Everyday Use That Is Still Able To Turn In Speeds Over 170 — Overall a very capable car. Though in corners it reminds one that its suspension is still from the standard 3 series. The build quality is lacking as there are many complaints on the rear subframe failure. Also the interior B and C pillars fabric is known to fall off. The rear deck rattles with too much bass or on rough roads. The alt will fail at around 40K. The cats often fail around the 50K-60K mark. The engine requires specific oil 10/60 that is only available from the dealer. The styling of the car still turns heads though the last model is 4 years old. While the first model is 8 years old. The S54 is a great engine and the Getrag trans is a good transmission though is often picky when selecting gears 1-3 often amplified in cold weather . Fun factor is still a 8 out of 10. I would buy again

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

    Pros: best bang for the buck

    Cons: better have a lot of bucks
