Agree, the M3 is great on the track - bone stock, or with mods.

Only reason they let it happen was because the instructor was driving the car.

There's nothing better than a nearly-full four door driving at speed on the track. Add some groceries in the trunk and you've got a perfect picture of a four door!

Completely agree that tracking this car gives one a whole other level of appreciation for its great balance, grip, engine and if anything the ///M fee;s safer being driven like this than everyday fast driving (leaving aside idiots on the public roads).

Tracking an M3 is THE differentiator for the crowd that says a boosted 335i is the same or better.

Hardly had to get out of 3rd for most of HHR, such a great track gear.
Will be back to HHR!
