Pros: What do you like about your 2008 BMW M3?
In awe at the performance. This is my 2nd M3. Body style is sleek and paint is far superior than other vehicles. I previously owned a Range Rover and Acura. BMW 'was" always my favorite by far. Super light street legal race car. I spent $70,000 twice.....But.........
Cons: How would you improve your 2008 BMW M3?
Don't drive the car like one. First, the tires BMW put on the car and recommends you keep on the care are sticky tires. Why...because the car is so light and fast that they are the only tires that grip the road. Well, it grips the road in the summer and spring. Terrible in the rain and cannot be driven in the snow ever. For the average person who invests all this money in a car that is seasonal, its a waste of money. Not to mention that the tires on this car are inferior to the car's performance. So you need to buy tires every 5,000 miles. Four tires are well over $2,000 installed at BMW. BMW says they should last for at least 15,000 miles. Of the 3 friends and myself with M3 nd M6's they lasted an average of 5-6,000 miles. Of course they are not covered. I think BMW uses this as a area to keep making money. I ask every M3 owner I see how long the tires last and they all agree. I called BMW of North American and informed them of this, asked them to research a better tire. They told me that they don't make the tires!!! No, they don't...but they do make and sell the car, advertising its street legal race car attributes. Just don't drive it like one. Not sure how many people spend $70,000 ($30,000 over the same 3 series, except for the motor speed) to purchase the M3 to drive it grandma-like and seasonal. BMW needs to realize that not everyone who buys a M3 has a lot of money to keep replacing the tires. They need to find a tire comparable to the car's performance speed. We buy the car to feel the race car effects.
2008 BMW M3 Review:
Never buy a BMW again. Is the economy effecting their allegiance to their repeat customers. It used to be that you were treated special at BMW, now they take your money and keep taking your money. No customer appreciation to this 3rd time BMW owner. I would love to be contacted by the corporate office about the need to improve the tires they put on the car. You would think that as a third time BMW owner they might respect my opinion. They don't!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dare them to contact me.
