Which used BMW M3 sports should I buy?
Launched in March 2001 as a Y-reg, this BMW M3 convertible is a simple one-model range, with no different engines or spec levels to worry about. Every car comes with a massive amount of standard kit. The bits designed to keep you on the road include M Suspension, Dynamic Stability Control and Variable M Differential Lock.
Many optional extras are available. One of the most sought after is the Sequential Manual Gearbox (SMG), launched in July 2001. It allows you to change gears by flicking paddles behind the steering wheel, giving a sporty drive and keeping your hands on the wheel all the time.
BMW dealerships or specialist high-end performance car sellers are the best places to source the vehicle.
