The Merc was all over the place. And did you see those tires afterwards? Two thumbs down. The Audi was second overall and the M3 was best overall.

For some reason im thinking either Harsh Times, or Babel, but I dont think either of those is right.


The music is from the great HBO series Deadwood.

Great to finally see the new M3 on Top Gear, looks great in Space/Red too, much more sleek and modern than the others....

Nice video. I really enjoyed watching it.

you have no idea how wonderful that was. actually you do, because you watched it...but it was wonderful!!! it just took over an hour to load all three vids on my slow ass gov't internet, but it was well worth the wait. interesting what they all have to say. good marks for the M3. i don't care much about the C63, but thought it was funny about the 6.2 litre with the 6.3 badge on the side...reminds me of the 335i

Awesome find. Top Gear FTW. I got chills the whole way through that video. My family and I are BMW crazy, and theres no better feeling than seeing the m3 come on top.

Thanks for the links. I soo loved this episode of Top Gear. Awesome lineup and very funnnny.

I disagreed with somethings though ! The camber issue? Did you see how many burnouts they were doing in the MB? Of course the tires are going to be worn out. Secondly, the apple test. Clarkson was taking that turn way faster than the Stig taking the turn in the M3. I would have liked to see Clarkson drive the M3 and attempt hitting the apple. Of course, they have to do such things for entertainment otherwise it would be no fun to watch.

Don't get me wrong though...I'm still very much pro-M3...i think the C63 only looks good from the front and rear. The side is too short and it needs rear fender flares to match the massive ones in the front. The engine is beastly though. Can't touch that, especially on the "street."

Los Angeles...how was the Audi 2nd and Merc last? lol. The Audi was slowest in a drag race...it was slowest around the track?

I'd rather live w/ the RS4 than the Merc. The Stig had to fight that wheel to get a time that was only ~ 0.5s faster - and the Merc has over 40 hp more!

And if you live in Canada, NW, NE, Colorado, Midwest & lots of W. Europe the RS4 would be that much more tractable and 'planted' than the Merc in wintry/wet conditions. AMG pushed a huge donk into a C to appeal to the greenlight dragstrip set. I'd want something more refined than that - and the next RS4 is will be out next year, right?
