Reviews for 2008 BMW M3

Overall Rating

4.7 out of 5(21 reviews)


Comfortable, quick, and always turns heads. Be prepared to spend plenty for fuel (I average less than 15 mpg). Insurance is affordable considering the performance features of the car. The V8 sounds and behaves crisply and the manual 6 speed shifts comfortably. The hard convertible top does add an extra 500 pounds to the car so if your looking for pure performance get the coup with the paddle shifters.

BMW M3 Coupe

Overall, a great car, maybe a bit expensive, but still some bang for your buck, from interior to exterior, it is great. Its sleek "Beamer" look sets it off.

Incredible all around car

BMW is one of the few companies who still offer a proper, three pedal manual for those of us who are die hard, row it yourself drivers. I was looking to replace my old beater and and needed a 4 door car with a back seat big enough to securely hold my son in his child seat and quickly narrowed my search to the Lexus IS-F, Audi S4, Mercedes C63 AMG and BMW M3. Of those choices, only Audi and BMW offer a true manual transmission. I have had extremely good luck with Lexus and seriously considered the IS-F despite the lack of a manual but in the end, the driving dynamics and proper manual transmission won me over. The powertrain in this car is pretty fantastic. All the power you can realistically use on the street with great sound to match. The ride/handling is excellent, as you'd expect from BMW. I'm still warming up to the I-Drive. Granted, my M3 is an '08 so it has the older version but I find BMW's take on the consoldated controls to not be as user friendly as Audi's current MMI. The quality of the materials (my car has the exended leather) is a mixed bag. The leather is great. But some of the other materials aren't as nice as what you'd expect in a car of this class. And frankly, while I have the upgraded entertainment system... it stinks. But I didn't buy this car for that. My only real criticism would have to be the range. I knew and expected that fuel mileage would be less than stellar. And that's true. Even if you're using cruise control, you're not going to get great mileage in this car. And that's fine. What's a bummer is that the low mileage combined with a very small gas tank means you're filing up a lot. Seems trivial but I've never before owned a car that requires me to hit the gas station more than once a week in regular driving and I've had some very high performance and less than fuel efficient cars. In summary, if you want fast, comfortable, fun and practical and you are like me.. and really like driving a stick... you're hard pressed to do better.
