Iíve driven the new M3 and Iím so happy.

I’ve driven the new M3 and I’m so happy.

I am not an expert but consider myself an extreme enthusiast. I test drove the M3 today (respecting the run-in procedure). My comments are as follows:
-engine 10/10
-the steering wheel feels great.
-the seat position is very comfortable (fully adjustable).
-the steering on the road felt very good.

-my only negative is I don’t like the rear-view mirror it is to plain.

I’m in love.

Do you not remember the uproar when the M3 got BMW assist and lost its special rearview mirror for the ugly square one? People were pissed....

GOOD GOD! You didn't like the rear-view mirror? BMW has really blown it this time. Why can't they get something so simple right? No way I'm getting the M3 now. I think I'll get a Porsche GT2 instead. Or maybe a 335i convertible. Decisions, decisions.

I'm sure we could figure out a way to hook a rearview camera into that lovely camel hump on the dash and rip the mirror off altogether!
