Greystoke ///M - A Real Chestbeater by Chopper pilot from Minneapolis on 06/25/2002. Trim: 2002 BMW M Roadster, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The acceleration and handling of this car leaves you shaking your head and grinning. It’s simply a monster, if you know how to handle it. I’m still learning, but jeez it's an enjoyable lesson.
Cons: That #$@%! plastic rear window.
Overall review: I've had this beauty for a month now. It turns heads wherever it goes (believe me, it's sure not me). As a pilot, I'm used to low altitude speed, but this is something else. I've tripled the speed limit on some lesser-traveled corners (safety first!), and love the confidence the M instills. It's glued to the road, but it wants to fly. What a combination. I got the Steel Gray Metallic -- a dear friend named it Greystoke, 'cuz she thinks it appeals to one's more primitive nature. Guilty as charged. It's both the beauty and the beast. A classic.

THE ultimate driving machine by SeeYa in GA on 05/18/2002. Trim: 2002 BMW M Roadster, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Power.....Power.....Power!! The thrill of driving an absolute "pure breed" sports car. The look you get from other drivers when they thought they were going to leave a Z-3 in the dust. The effortless navigation of windy roads at 80+ MPH. Discontinued this month....its on its way to becomming a classic.
Cons: Plastic Window.
Overall review: I traded in my Z-3 for this monster. Great decision. I can't believe the Edmund's test drivers liked the Z-3 better in their 2000 test (or the Honda and the Audi for that matter). They must be a bunch of wussies that would rather drive like my grandma than pass everything on the road. In my own personal experience (after putting many miles on each), the M is not only MUCH faster, it handles better and doubles the Z-3 on the thrill meter.

The Z3 - Zesty, Zoomey, Zippy by Uberhaulin on 08/22/2014. Trim: 2002 BMW M Roadster, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: wonderful driver's car -- great handling, ample power. Beautiful to see -- lots of curves, minimal lines (e.g., the hood closes on to the front bumber, avoiding a crease line such as those on Z-4s).
Cons: Additional storage would be helpful. Glass in the convertable top would be greatly appreciated over the plastic window.
Overall review: A GREATcar, requiring minimal maintenance/repairs -- especially compared to other performance sports cars.

Great sports car for the buck! by Cliff from Northern Virginia on 12/28/2012. Trim: 2002 BMW M Roadster, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: I have a 1999 M Roadster and have owned it for the past 12 years. It is what a sports car should be, great performance and corners like a go-cart. The car has 61K miles on it and I have had no mechanical issues. I do the "old school" maintenance and expect to enjoy it for another 12 years..........
Cons: I only have 2 cons about the car. The first if the rear window, wish it was glass but it can be replaced. the second is the sub woofer, it blew the first month I had the car. I understand that is a common problem with the Harmon Kordon speakers. Not much to complain about after 12 years ownership! Would I buy it again if I had it to do over? You Bet.
Overall review: Great car.
