About the car

"Dude, that's clownshoes!"

If somebody ever says that to you, it's probably supposed to be an insult. Or so the urban dictionary tells me. But if the object being referred to is a 1999-2002 BMW M Coupe, it's not so much an insult as a statement of fact. Sure, it's a little funny looking... but the shoe-like proportions all work together to produce an amazing driving experience.

I won't bore you with the factual details about the creation of this car (the interwebs can help you there), but if you want to meet up, I'd be happy to go into great detail about what makes it so special (IMHO). And it's not just about the engine, though the 3.2L M Power S52 is a great place to start.

Yes, this car is fast. And the perception of speed is amplified by the fact that you are sitting mere inches off the ground. It is not for the timid. If you plan to keep the tachometer below 3500 RPM, this is not the car for you. And if you don't know why you would want to rev above 3500 RPM, this is not the car for you either.

That said, I'm not giving you cart blanche to redline the thing. And I'm definitely not condoning reckless driving. The fact is, you can have a lot of fun within the speed limit if you know how to take advantage of the car's finer points (and you also know how to pick the right roads!).

Needless to say, I'm very fond of this car. I've had 3 of them over the years, and this one probably won't be my last. I've thought long and hard about whether to make this car available on the public marketplace, and I think I've come around. Based on my experience thus far, RelayRides renters are on the whole a responsible and respectable lot. PLEASE don't make me change my opinion.

If you would like to try out this car, please leave a detailed description in your rental request to help me understand why you're interested in this particular vehicle and why none of the thousands of other cars listed on the service will meet your needs.
