Thanks for the scans, a proper translation (summery) is required. Five stars . Are we happy with the 0-100Km/h of 4.9 seconds? The as tested price is also quite alarming.

My few German reviews (video and text) I've seen really hand it to the M3. Germans love their own car?

And the Dutch, the rest of Europe, Asia, Africa, Middle East, parts of North America parts of South America and Me. The only ones who donít like the car are the English and the Australians. Then again the English hate most things German.

Bad traction on wavy roads? That was the biggest argument that M3 owners have. That it's more agile on a track than a 335. So much for that!

Sure

What do wavy roads have to do with agility on a track?

I think they mean "bumpy" roads, not curvy.

Might want to put NWS on this thread title. The pages load with girly shots at the bottom. Not cool.

Oh, lost in translation. They indeed mean bumpy. So wavy is the wrong term?

E, it always takes me some minutes to verify your abbreviations...
Is an ad like this already a problem at work?

It's common practice to put "Not Work Safe (NWS)" on threads that contain such material. It is a problem at most work sites if questionable content is loaded.

No problem. It is mostly an issue with "Off Topic (OT)" threads. Hosting the pages on a site that has nudie pics isn't the best idea.
