1995 BMW 3 Series M3 3.2 petrol from UK and Ireland
The ultimate driving machine
Interior trim was always very flimsy and breakable.
Air conditioning failed at 94,000 miles.
Electric mirror mechanism failed at 109,000 miles.
Apart from a tiny number of interior and electrical problems, the M3 was a very solid and reliable car.
It never gave me any major problems.
But I would have enjoyed it anyway, thanks to its blistering performance and great handling.
Maintenance costs were very high though, and it could have done with a bit more legroom in the back.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
