2006 M3 Convertible

The 2006 M3 Convertible is a car that has always appealed to me and when I moved to Southern California, there was no better opportunity to finally buy one. The M3 combines head-turning looks and head-snapping performance. With the roof up or down, the car looks sleek and balanced from all angles. BMW have not gone over the top with the "M" modifications on the E46 model - flared wheel arches, the subtle power domed hood, wider air intakes and the signature 4 port exhaust distinguish it from the standard 3 series and give it a more muscular stance with no over the top spoilers or air-scoops. In terms of equipment and finish, the car is fully stacked from heated leather seats (with the cold weather option) to automatic environmental a/c. I went for an Alpine White with black roof and Black Leather / Titan Shadow interior and although the car is 6 years old, the finishes are still in excellent condition. Performance-wise, the S54 in-line 6 cylinder produces 333bhp from 3.2 litres which will propel it from 0 to 60 in around 5.5 seconds. The convertible is heavier than the coupe alternative but it still feels balanced and nimble in the corners giving you confidence for the twisty bits. I have only owned the car for 7 weeks so my comments on reliability are not going to be the most fruitful, but all the equipment and mechanics, inside and out, work and work-well with robust build quality and finish - although I can imagine service and replacement parts will be expensive. I did quite a lot of research into the M3 before purchasing and viewed plenty of examples. I ended up paying out a little more than I originally budgeted for to get something in good condition. There are examples out there for what seem a decent price but scrutiny pays off in the used performance car market. I aimed for low mileage and something that has been looked after, not raced, with a full service history. It pays to be patient to buy a car like this with confidence. My only negative feedback I can give about the M3 is that it is thirsty in the city (15mpg), there is no spare tire, the back seats can be cramped with the roof up and the engine note is a little mundane up to 3000 revs (let loose beyond that and the exhaust pitches into the M3's moniker rasp). For anyone who wants a car with stunning good looks and performance to match, for a reasonable budget, I would recommend the 2006 M3.

2006 BMW M3

The 2006 M3 is an awesome sports car. I've always thought the E46 chassis was one of the best looking cars on the road and I still think so. It rides great with outstanding road handling and has enough power on tap to get the blood flowing through your veins!!! :))

M3 Convertible Fulfills ALL expectations

I have always wanted to purchase an m3 and my wife has always wanted an m3 convertible. We came across this car and the price was right and it was perfect timing. The car is FULL of features such as rain sensing wipers, clutchless 6 speed transmission, etc. The car has 19" wheels with low profile tires which usually in a performance oriented car would mean rough ride...not at all. This car hugs corners, sticks to the road and has a smooth luxurious ride to boot! The power is incredible and the way the car drives cannot be matched. I am a major car enthusiast and I can say that now it will be hard to buy anything but a BMW after driving this car for a month now. The only thing you want to be sure to know is that maintenance is not cheap but if you use OEM parts you will not have to worry too much about this. For example, the oil and filter is $88 when purchased online to do yourself as it is a special German Castrol 10w60, however it is only needed to be changed every 15,000 miles! I will on the other hand change is at 7,500 but still in the long run you are paying about the same but it is all at once and not spread every 3,000 miles. Also, be sure to get a pre-purchase inspection as they can help identify any areas that need to be addressed. For me there was one small minor issue that was that the backup sensors (2 of them) were not working properly but quickly and easily fixed.
