Sometimes gents you find a small stretch of road the suits the M3. Close to where I live is a long slow S that has a bridge too. I dont push the M with other cars around as to be safe and I don't need attention. But today no traffic.
Dropped into M mode and punched it to 8200k, the engine singing, the suspension and tranny tense ready to pounce into a rapid 2nd then 3rd gear. The power explosive. The speed warning going off at 80 in a blink of a second., the car flying over the low rise bridge wanting to push to 110 easy. The engine howling in pleasure. A mixture of pleasure and fear when you realize what this car is capable of in it's zone.
It's makes the payment worht it at times like that.
