A huge range of adjustment makes it easy for all drivers to make themselves comfortable, while the sports seats provide just the right balance of comfort and support. The dash is similar to conventional 3 Series models, so it's simple and clearly laid out, but you'll have to put up with BMW's iDrive controller, which some find too complicated, although the latest version is better than the original.
BMW M3 Coupe space & practicality
The M3 is a genuine four-seater, with ample legroom for four tall adults. While there's good headroom in the front, taller passengers will find headroom in the back a little tight, however. The boot is a generous size, but it's an irregular shape and the load entrance is on the small side.
BMW M3 Coupe equipment
The M3 is no stripped-out race replica. Features such as automatic headlights and wipers, xenon headlights, part-leather sports seats, electric driver's seat adjustment and reverse-parking sensors supplement the basics of 18-inch alloy wheels, climate control and a CD player. You have to pay extra for full leather upholstery, larger alloy wheels and electronic damper control.
