No it isn't cheap to own or operate, but it is special in the way only a true gearhead can appreciate. But go for manual only as these earlier model SMG gearboxes are troublesome and prone to issues. The thick sport steering wheel and variable steering resistance makes this car a real treat to handle when you step on the gas. Of course M mode takes this car from comfortable pony to angry racehorse with the push of a button. Suspension is tight but you don't feel every bump in the road -- truly a perfect balance of comfort and cornering. But the cost of this performance beast is felt at the pump. Being a performance engine this car requires premium fuel. Anything less will ruin it. To make matters worse you'll not get better than 16mpg in average city/highway mixed driving. But you own this car because it is a BMW M3, not because it's an economy fourbanger. Enjoy.
I love this car!!! The M3 runs great, powerful, and fun to drive. It's the car that always wanted & have been looking for.
Man that engine is a straight beast smoking every car pulling next to you!!
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:
