For those of you that know me well, you are probably quite surprised it took me this long to make a car related post!

I got my electronic version of Car & Driver today, and it had the first full review of the new BMW M3! With 417HP in a very high-revving V8, what is not to like! Well, the review definitely doesn’t take any of the shine off. The only complaint is its price… (I think the people at Car & Driver forgot the $USD has dropped A LOT since the last model was released, which accounts for the ‘price increase’).

Well… there could be two more doors. 🙂

If they do bring a rumoured 4-dr version for NA (see spy shots), I will be getting in line!

Ooooo… I almost missed the video where you can hear the sweet engine and witness some very bad driving by automotive journalists!

  1. Four doors, huh? I quite distinctly remember you telling me when I had my Jag that having four doors was lame… I’m glad you finally came around. LOL damn, we’re getting old!

  2. Yep. The other thing I learned about 4-doors is that they tend to have a lot more structural rigidity (which typically leads to better handling) than coupes because of the extra b-pillar. So there is a performance angle as well. 😉 That said, the new 335i Coupe looks way better than my 4-door.

  3. If they come out with a 4-dr version, I’ll be getting a second job and be right behind you in line. But wouldn’t the 4-dr customers just buy a M5?

  4. No. My guess will be this thing will sell in Canada for $70-80K base vs. $113K base price of the M5. The $30-40K delta is a bit steep, especially since the reviews of the M5 have not been that stellar.
