Beloved

2008 BMW M3 Amar - Los Angeles 05/26/2010

Ever since it was The 2002 (model name), the 3 series has forever been a favorite among people whe know what makes a car "world class". Just flip through any auto magazine review from any era if you doubt it. Those who may know fast, but don't know true world class will insist that the likes of an STI or an EVO can some how be mentioned. One drive in either of those over-priced econo boxes, will expose that they lack the balance and poise that can be had on even a basic 3 series with sport package option. Although hard to pick over a Z06 which can be had for around the same money, you will not regret this purchase...you will love the car every day you drive it!

BMW M3 Coupe

2008 BMW M3 JMFN - Frostburg, MD 11/30/2008

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.

2008 BMW M3 Overview

Introduced to the United States in 1995, the 2008 version of the BMW M3 was the first one to include a V8 engine.

2008 BMW M3 History

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:

  • aerodynamic body enhancements
  • more responsive and powerful engine options
  • additional exterior and interior accents, including the distinctive, tri-color M emblem
  • improved braking, handling, and suspension systems
  • lightweight components

How It Drives

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:

  • stability control
  • adjustable shocks
  • precision-based manual transmission
  • precise shifter
  • easily modulated pedal

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.

Used 2008 BMW M3 Value

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.

Design & Performance

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.

Powertrain & Engine

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.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The BMW M3 features more aggressive body styling compared to the standard 3-Series sedan or coupe. Some notable features include:

  • A redesigned and sculpted aluminum hood with vents
  • Revised rear and front fascias
  • Flared fender vents
  • Carbon-fiber roof

The M3's interior has also had alterations including:

  • Sportier seats
  • Leather-trimmed interior
  • Heavily-bolstered seats complete with deep side and torso bolsters
  • Leather steering wheel
  • Door sills emblazoned with the "M" logo
