: Drove the 4d m3 today

03-18-08, 05:19 PM
and i gota say. It feels just like the V (power wise). Gears shifted at similar mph and it felt like the torque and the HP were about the same. Got it up to 120 and the guy about shat himself, but it was a very nice drive and the brakes great!
I think our stock V's could still beat this m3, and I KNOW the next V will slap that bimma around!
Any one else drive on and think it was similar?

and I got some new pics of my V. Some time you guys say the pics disappear after a few house, but lets try it anyways.

Beautiful car, but you seriously need a DSLR and a tripod. I think I developed an aneurysm trying to focus my eyes on those pics. :p

Have you driven a 2dr M3? Im curious how much softer the 4dr is then the 2dr? Its been along time since they offered a 4dr M3, and last time it wasnt the driver the 2dr was.

WOW. Thats dramatically beautiful!

I wish they'd make an M7. I suppose that Alpina model is close enough, but it's just not an M car.

I wish they'd make a "new" 7 that was like the last gen 7....

I do like the new CL M-Bs, but the new S-Class sedan is just a "cheap" Maybach knockoff.

I do like the new CL M-Bs, but the new S-Class sedan is just a "cheap" Maybach knockoff. Actually, its more the oppposite. The Maybach is based on the previous gen S-class (W220) not the present gen (W221).

My guess is most customers buy an S-class because of the badge, the electronics/gadgets, and the ride quality. And the new S-class is great in all these areas.
