how is the reputation in Germany of that magazine? are those numbers true in your experience?can you confirm that the numbers of the other two cars, already tested by many magazines in Germany and not only, are similar to precedent reports??this could mean that also the test of their M3 is reliable.

It's not AMS or SportAuto, but it's OK. My personal opinion is that it's a magazine worth reading most of the time. But usually the performance numbers of AUTOZeitung are better than AMS for example... Also the acceleration numbers for the R8 are about the best I can remember...

All I say is: CUP
