I sold my beloved Porsche 911s a few years ago after we were blessed with the birth of a son. Now that he's old enough to face forward in a car, I wanted something fun to drive, safe and with a back seat big enough to hold a car seat and his gear. The M3 is a perfect solution. The powertrain is outstanding. Frankly, it's a little flat down low (you really need to make this engine spin to get the most of it) but how many other manufacturers make a high power, rear drive car that you can still get a proper, three pedal manual gearbox? Only BMW. The brakes are great, the handling is very good (especially for a car this size and weight) and the visibility out of the sedan is phenominal. My gripes? Well, as expected, fuel mileage is lousy. And to be honest, the Idrive is pretty bad. Granted, my car is a 2008 which doesn't have the current generation of Idrive but this system is really pretty bad. Last, the stereo (even the upgarded model) just stinks. But all the better reason for me to enjoy the sound of that V8 motor. I'm glad I got MaxCare as I don't expect this vehicle to be as reliable as many of the Japanese cars I've owned before but overall, we're very happy. Great car. Especially when you can get a nice, slightly used model at roughly half the cost of a new one.
I have owned several BWMs, but this is the ultimate driving machine. If you like acceleration and excitement, this is the car for you. The body style is a real eye catcher. My only regret is that I didn't buy one sooner.
Its pretty fast and the contols are slightly manageable. I would recommend to anyone.
Introduced to the United States in 1995, the 2008 version of the BMW M3 was the first one to include a V8 engine.
The BMW M3 began production in 1985 as a compact luxury sports sedan. Though the last coupe was manufactured in Germany in 2013, the M3 name lives on with a saloon version of the vehicle. With the introduction of the M3 series, consumers were treated to expansive upgrades including:
Even with a top speed of 155 miles per hour, the BMW M3 still delivers the precise control, traction, and handling that one expects from this top luxury automaker. The M3 gracefully glides around corners while its body evokes a race car-like feel of stability, and has scores of electronic features that are designed to provide the ride and handling. These include:
The BMW M3's braking system is equal to none. It boasts progressive action from powerful binders that enable the vehicle to come to a dead standstill from 60 miles per hour in just 100 feet, an astonishing feat that is difficult to duplicate.
With an original price tag of $57,000, the 2008 BMW M3 can be found today for under $40,000. Considered the best car in its class in 2008, the superb features of this vehicle - available as either a sedan or coupe - make it a fantastic value for car owners who want luxurious style and comfort with an excellent ride and handling.
While the heart of the BMW M3 lies in its 4.0-liter, 414 horsepower V8 engine, the car's other features ensure that drivers have the first-class, luxury package they expect. While the six-speed manual transmission is standard on this vehicle, the optional seven-speed provides increased control via manual operation using a paddle conveniently mounted on the steering wheel.
The BMW M3 adds a host of performance features like stability control, adjustable shocks, and steering mechanisms. The M Drive is an optional feature that allows the driver to alter the ride of the BMW M3 with the touch of a button. You can change the responsiveness of the car's steering, the stiffness of the shocks, alter the throttle's feel, or add some wheelspin via the stability control.
The split rear seats of the BMW M3 can fit two adults comfortably, and can be folded down separately or together to increase the trunk storage.
This charged-up engine brought the BMW M3 to a whole new level of performance. Whether it's the sedan or coupe model, the vehicle's included 4.0-liter V8 packs 414 horsepower and can reach zero to 60 miles per hour in just 4.8 seconds. Its standard transmission is a six-speed manual that includes a locking differential. However, there is also a dual-clutch, seven-speed transmission available as well. The aluminum chassis allows the BMW M3 to smoothly redline at 8,400 revolutions per minute.
The BMW M3 features more aggressive body styling compared to the standard 3-Series sedan or coupe. Some notable features include:
The M3's interior has also had alterations including:
