BMW M3 (E92) buyers review

BMW M3 (E92) buyers review


I feel like pulling out my credit card.
This is brilliant. This is such a nice car, the BMW M3 E92. That’s
the coupe. There’s also a sedan and convertible. The latter is a lot heavier, about 440 lb.
The sedan sits in between, because the coupe has a carbon roof. Not if you get a sunroof,
though. There are cars with one. You won’t have a carbon roof then.
It’s a brilliant car. It’s the only M3 that’ll have a V8, I think.
I don’t think that’s a disadvantage. If you want a collector’s item, there’s
1 M3 you’d want to buy most of all, even though they’re very expensive.
The M3 GTS. Orange, of course. The M3 GTS has a slightly bigger engine. 4.4 liters,
while the normal M3 has “only” 4 liters to play with. The performance is fantastic. It’s a very nice engine;
racey, naturally aspirated, last of the Mohicans. About 35 M3s of this generation
are for sale on AutoScout. Most are a coupe. Of course, I’d say.
The sedan is most rare. I think it’s very cool. There are more convertibles,
but over 50% is a coupe. This generation M3 was also available
with a double clutch gearbox, a DCT. About 50% of the cars has a DCT. Prices start at 30,000 euros. PRICES
minimum, average, maximum Of course there are things to watch out for.
This is M Performance, so M prices for some parts and the running costs. They’re higher than
a 320 diesel. You wouldn’t expect that. More tires, brakes, and fuel are needed.
It does depend on your driving. There was a special run in program for the M3.
The first 1,243 miles needed easy driving and special fluids. You’ll have to check the booklet
if those were extracted and normal oil poured in. You don’t know how it was driven in.
Unfortunately, we weren’t there, but it’s important. This V8 does use some oil,
so check the level regularly. You have to do this using iDrive; there’s no dipstick.
It’s less accurate, but it does use some oil. Just keep an eye on it. The M3
could have had a fun but hard life. If it has been to the track often…
The car can handle it. The diff lock at the rear can act up.
It’s a very nice diff lock, by the way. It’s electronically operated, so it can do everything,
except make the wheels spin in opposite sides. Listen for extra noises at the rear when accelerating
and coasting. The diff may be the cause. The DCT doesn’t have much problems, but if
things go wrong, it’s when driving off. It won’t be smooth. It’s like your nephew, who
just got his driver’s licence, tries to drive stick. It’s not smooth. If that’s the case, you have
to make sure the seller fixes it first. It can be solved with a software update,
but if not, there may be another cause. I’d look for another M3. A small thing that may be annoying: the seatbelt
sensors don’t always see you’re strapped in. If you don’t buy an M3 because of that,
I don’t think you deserve it. There are 2 more things for
the S65 V8 engine to look at. If something’s wrong with the throttle actuators,
you’re losing power or the dashboard will light up. Pretty much every light on
the dashboard will be switched on. There are 2 actuators and
they’re relatively expensive. It’d be a shame if you have to replace them. Then there are the bushings, known to
everyone who looked for a BMW M model. These are high rpm engines, which means there
isn’t much tolerance and they do have a harder life. They’re not that bad, but do know that you’ll
have to replace them every 62,000 miles. If you don’t, it wears through,
damaging the crankshaft etc. In the worst case your engine is
done for and needs replacing. So, replace them pre-emptively. It’ll be better. We’ll finish with a stupid little thing. The brakes’ light bulbs. They can loosen in
the pre-facelift coupe, switching on at random. Tighten them and you’re done. We found this car at Marc Huisman
in Alphen aan den Rijn. It’s pretty. It’s a pretty combination; grey,
red leather, M Performance goodies, different BMW rims… This looks very good,
and it has a nice mileage. You can still have a lot of fun with this car.
I would, but I can’t hoon it and tell you to buy it. I’ll have to drive it carefully,
but the M3 does challenge me. You can also drive it easily. THIS CAR Thanks to

  1. Vanuit de camera in de auto lijkt het inderdaad dat rooiige bruine leder. Maar aan het eind is dit echt fel rood. Lijkt wel andere auto.

  2. Aan het begin: wat kost ie? Wat kost ie? Wat kost ie? Daarna oh lama nog ff door sparen. Leuk review. Jammer van de velgen, die vind ik minder

  3. Ik heb zelf een BMW m3 e92 met performance package met dct bak echt een geweldige auto een aanrader voor de echte petrolhead heb er jaren van genoten het waren prijzige jaren maar ik had wel plezier heb hm met spijt weggedaan voor m'n Audi RS6 c7 avant had jammer genoeg de ruimte nodig ik zal zo weer een m3 kopen het is Eem geweldige auto

  4. Great Video! I own a LCI Modell with DCT, Competition Package and Individual in- and outside and it's probably the best car I've been driven,also compared to the F430 and R8.
    Check it out on my channel if you want to hear some sounds of the modified exhaust System.

  5. Dont buy one its rubbish, I have one and I hate it, its so slow, the engine is pathetic, gutless is polite 297 lb/ft in a car that weighs over 1500 kg makes it a very slow car . The ridiculous carbon roof , lightweight wings and bonnet whats the point, its been weighed down by all manner of totally unneeded electronic things , the seats are awful worst seats in any car I have had, the awful chav BMW image and build quality makes it a chavtastic car to laugh at. I actually find mine embarrassing, its so sales rep, so slow,  the comedy value of the pathetic nieve BMW German engineering goes someway to making the purchase worthwhile as I cant help laughing at it , its a BMW so par for the course really. 1/10 is  very good score for a pile of junk like a BMW M3 its just so slow they should fit a stick to poke you to stop you gong to sleep.
    What do expect from a chavy German tat brand like though not a lot other than a driving joke

  6. Performance 1/10
    Build Quality 1/10
    Image 0/10 
    Reliability 1/10
    Interior 1/10

    Basically its a pile of junk I cant help laughing at the one I have its naff and so chavy its embarrassing its a BMW par for the course for a German sales rep car. Great comedy value but thats as good as any M car can get so awful its funny.

  7. i'm american and i'm considering this e92 from a 2006 v6 honda accord coupe manual. i was wondering specifically the in's and out's of this car in detail, specifically the upkeep details and things like wear-n-tear. i'm a car "enthusiastic" but i'm definitely not gonna sit here and act as if i know it all. a lot of the info you gave was very helpful and was exactly what i was wondering and wouldn't have known this info otherwise.(for example the oil life, and replacing parts at 62k miles) thank you from NYC. most of the youtube reviews of the e92 are very basic in comparison; mostly talking about cosmetics and "engine sound". in my opinion, if you want to buy this car, you should be buying it b/ of it's notorious performance and not "looks" even though it's obviously a beautiful looking coupe. thank you for the info. btw–are you speaking German? Peace.

  8. Is there a alternate video dubbed in English? good video just haven't had to read sub titles in a while….
