Just got back from a trip to Laguna seca with the wife. Trunk was surprisingly big enough to fit 2 luggage, 2 helmets, 2 chairs, and a 10x10 quick shade. All the while I averaged 25mpg with an avg mph of 85. It was quite comfortable except my bum was numb after 5 hours of driving, note I'm coming from a loaded e63 m6!
My track experience was amazing. And only further confirmed I made the right choice. The handling was great, the feedback was excellent, and the chassis was soooo neutral! I was a bit nervous about driving such a high hp beast on a track I've never driven and in the rain, but all my fears were put aside after the first session
However, I can relate and see how I can quickly tire of this car if I didn't track. On the streets, it feels really wide, and steering feels like nothing special. Having said that, if I only had one car the m3 would be in my garage. Out of my past cars, z4m, boss302, 997.1,m6, I can honestly say I have the largest smile when driving my z06 ;0) of course actions speak louder than words and if you see that I still own this car after 6 month then you know I stand by my review.
