Used BMW 3-Series M3 Convertible (2001 - 2006) Review

Review by Parkers on
4.5
A very impressive piece of kit, with sufficiently enhanced looks to distinguish it from cooking 3-Series models, the drop top simply adds an extra layer of appeal to the M3's already compelling specification. Ultimately the loss of the metal roof makes it less suitable for the race track, but that's not the point of this car.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

4.5 out of 5

A very impressive piece of kit, with sufficiently enhanced looks to distinguish it from cooking 3-Series models, the drop top simply adds an extra layer of appeal to the M3's already compelling specification. Ultimately the loss of the metal roof makes it less suitable for the race track, but that's not the point of this car. It's an everyday useable high performance car that you can also enjoy poodling about soaking up the sun in.

You'll have to spend an awful lot of money to feel like you have much more of a car.

What owners say...

 Four seats and a good sized boot (trunk). Supercar performance but with practicality/ day-to-day driveability.

 As fast as a 911 and can hold 3 other passengers comfortably.
