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.

Performance By BMW_M3

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
