Mojo Deals: The Performance Edition!

This week’s new car is the 2011 BMW M3 Coupe base model. The M3 is a great car for driving enthusiasts who long for excellent performance and handling, and sheer automotive excitement. Its 414hp V8 engine will make your heart race and your knuckles turn white! However, with a price tag around $60k, buyers may feel they are not getting enough interior enhancements, and adding options quickly becomes very pricey. The M3 is a beautiful car with terrific performance and drivability, but by taking advantage of the Mojo price, we bet you can get a lot more for your money! First, let’s take a look at the BMW and its specs:

2011 BMW M3 Coupe (Base)
