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.

Beloved

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!
