It's why Clarkson's reviews and opinions are only to be taken with a pinch of salt. Though I must admit, I had already the M3 on order when that episode was aired and I doubled over at the 'cock-o-meter' and his dress code when in the M3. I thought to myself what the fuck had I done.

Now it seems I got out of Audis at just the right time.

yeah, Jeremy now propogates loudly that M3s are cool again, and Audis are now the cars driven by cocks. Take that. Enough of BMW bashing. They are cool again.

Apart from the RS4 time, all of the others are there on the TOPGEAR website. Could it be quicker than an old model Gallardo, it is possible but compared to the stock Viper yes I completely believe the M3 would be quicker, this is a course with a few tight corners which would hinder the big viper.

Also worth noting is the E90 M3 is 6.5s quicker than the old E46 M3. Now that is what I call progress. But so was the old Audi S4 which was a surprise to me.

the e90 has more structural rigidity than the e92 due to the B pillars

I love my E92 a lot. But after watching that video and seeing how beautiful that E90 looked on that puddle of water, I'm starting to think I should have bought a sedan.

Oh well! What are you gonna do!

It was faster on the lap board than two Gallardos - the original coupe that was tested in the wet and the G-spyder that was more powerful and supposedly handles just as well, tested in the dry. The original Gallardo was not that super of a super car. It really shows how far LambAudi has evolved the chassis in just a few years, when you see how incredibly fast the LP560 is.

while the C63 is a fantastic car, it doesn't belong on the track

the car is meant for speed/acceleration on the highway - the suspension is tuned for a certain comfort and stability ( u n d e r s t e e r )

this is because AMG's are built in a different spirit than M's - natural, seeing as how the whole philosophy of MB is towards a different direction than BMW.

for a day driving out in the mountains, the M3 is the appropriate car. but for shooting down the expressway, the C63 is the choice machine. and a preference for one does not negate the qualities of the other.

you, being a C63 owner, should have known this - such a comment was uncalled for

later

I didn't see any crying by him (regardless of whether he owned a 335i or a Bugatti Veyron. What difference that makes only the insecure would know?), just possibly a misinformed post.

What I did read is a childish post with unnecessary name calling in an elitist manner by an M3 owner.


C63, M3, IF-F all excellent cars. All three offer excellent performance, with some having their forte's in different areas than the others, but neither lacking in any area.
