Interesting that C&D thinks the steering is not bad at all, and that it is "much" faster and better. At least that is what I am getting out of the video. Rhough, as many others agree, it is pricy!

Nice video, gotta love the music - of the engine of course!

Thank you for the post.

Love it - love it, but squeeky brakes? (hopefully pre-production, it must be a fluke) I concur with the pricey, but he is still speculating.

I'm waiting for the sedan w/the new tranny. Black on Black

I love seeing how fast the guy punched it to the 8,400 RPM redline, were the brake squeeky because they were fitted with racing pads?

I watched that like 5 times. Very intoxicating.

Doesn't E46 M3 revs faster than that? I know it's no where fast speed wise with but the rpm seem to rev faster in E46 M3? Atleast in 1st gear?

but it has 6 pistons.. E92 has 8? Lol? That sounds like a V8, but it sure as hell seems as if he was punching a V6 on the redlines. Thats a hella hyper active V8. Usually V8's are lazy, heavy and chunky.

They probably only get noisy when hot. My ZCP M3 had noisy pads when they were heated up considerably on an open track. Loud pads are usually a good thing...the quieter the pad, usually the poorer performing in extreme conditions.
