So far they are not facts, just opinions, and they are not all in agreement. SteveD (Evo) said he likes the new M3 better than his CSL, and the Auto Bild test driver in that video that was posted http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAugtcSGw0s
needs not translation to express his pleasure! These short hit opinions based on a few hours of exposure are just not convincing or coherent. I'm not jumping on the all is lost ship just yet. And, realistically, it will be a fantastic car for the way most of us drive and beyond.
