Gerhard Richter, vice president of BMW M Power, says, "M3 stands for our philosophy; it best describes the M character.

Sorry Mr.Richter, but if M's character means pandering to BMWs marketeers and bean-counters, then give up now, because the M3 is no-longer a true M3, where handling came before performance and luxury.

"But it's not perfect. The steering lacks the consistent weighting and tactile communication that a Porsche offers. For a car this rapid, it's not as talkative as it should be. We've also got reservations about the brakes. Our test car was fitted with competition-grade brake pads to cope with track use, but they still faded badly after a handful of hard laps." - Edmund.

This is unnerving. I dont' care of the lack of torque or the engine should have generated 500hp. The engine sounds fantastic.

I want to be part of the machine and that requires feedback. Inasmuch as the reviews this doesn't look like the new M3 has it.
