Default Question

im pretty sure and ive read this before but i would just like to make sure...are there ANY body style changes from the 2003-2004 M3's?

when i say any i mean ANY!...just would like to confirm.. And any body style/Engine changes in the 2005 m3? (compared to a 2003)


Now, i know there were recalls on the 2002 M3's, but someone on this forum said that if the m3 is a 2003 or under it basicly sucks..why would someone say that? is there something thats wrong with the 03's? i dont get it...


need some help here lol

Ignorance would make someone say that.

2003.5 to 2006 M3 have LED tail lights and an upgraded audio system with the ability to add Sat. I think that's about it. You can't tell a 2001 from 2006 from the front or side at 20 feet, unless it's a special color or a zcp.

not sure why someone would say that - id10t error- maybe they had a lemon - who knows. I could not be happier with my 2001, just rolled 50k on her.

People say that for one of two reasons:

1. They are referring to the recall, which is a moot point once the service has been completed.

2. They own a 2003.5+ model, and want to feel special at someone else's expense.
