Detailed Facts

Here's some detailed facts on our beloved M3 - no driving impressions or performance figures - just some facts some of which were new to me. And at this point I think we all could use some more facts. It seems like this board has been taken over with the same 'disappointed'...'ill wait till my test drive'...'RS4' over and over again

'Precisely this is why nearly all components on the double-joint front axle are made of aluminium among them the even stiffer spring struts, the pivot bearings, the central subframe and an additional thrust panel beneath the engine serving to maximise the lateral stiffness of the entire front section.'

'Together with the axle control arms in forged aluminium and the aluminium dampers, these technologies and light materials serve to reduce weight by approximately 2.5 kg versus the former suspension.'
