2011 BMW M3 Review | Pictures | Specification

2011 BMW M3
The coupe is a 3-series that has undergone tuning by BMW M, the car maker's motorsport division. The latest model now equipped with a Competition Package as standard that improves on the current driving dynamics but more on that later.

The 2011 BMW M3 is huge. Once you're settled inside, you feel as if your human presence is overshadowed, intimidated, especially with that innocuous M button staring at you. Still, the 2011 BMW M3 surprises because it is actually very easy to drive at city speeds and therefore, easy to live with on a daily basis.
I had no trouble cruising around tight HDB carparks, sometimes attracting a stare or two with the deep, rumbling V8 engine. A lightened steering wheel at low speed helped. The 2011 BMW M3 has a smooth, if somewhat rumbly, city drive even in Normal driving mode. I did without the Comfort mode, the third leg in the electronic damper control for the M3. The sports seats in front were cushy and yet provided ample lateral support, a reminder that these vehicles are still track cars.

We liked the weighted steering that added a sharpness to the driving dynamics. Despite its track intentions, the suspension will be easy on your bones as it levels out road bumps that our engineers have forgotten about. A Comfort driving mode exists should there be a need to soften the handling further. Gear shifts were silky-smooth with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission but when required, a touch of the accelerator will bring you up to speed.
