Today's TEST DRIVE episode.

CST 3pm on SPEED CHANNEL. Here in Dallas anyways.

4 world class drivers try out the BMW M3. Should be interesting to see who they are and what they think. I do not think it is a repeat.

Guys, sorry, but this is a MAJOR repost.

This show aired last week on Monday evening.

There is a link over on M3post where someone already has it up on YouTube.

What if everyone does not live online like you? Obviously I had not seen it or Boost and no telling how many more. So, because you knew it was on You Tube I should not have let people known about the airing. Maybe us idiots could watch it after a whole week went by from the original airing. What a MAJOR era on my part.

Log off...go outside...get some fresh air and RELAX.

Summary was it pretty much sucked. I was excited to watch it, but it was rather pointless. Also I can't stand TK, such a douche. Was nice to see the M3 in action, even though the tests they did were rather lame. Worth a watch but don't get your hopes up.

Fun fact of the day: you don't have to stay on the forum 24/7 to stay abreast of the latest news - the forum actually saves all of the posts! You can locate them easily using our handy "Search" feature. We're also considering adding little icons that show emotions, but we haven't decided what to call them yet...

^ Uhhhhhh...
What would searching have done for those who might have wanted to watch it on their television, which it seems some did? I better sign out, I am getting weepy.

The show was pretty much a drag to watch. The fast lap at the end was decent.

Sounds like you are the one that needs to relax man. I wasn't trying to be an asshole or anything, just stating the facts, and providing information that anyone who hadn't seen it could go watch it at their leisure on YouTube.

I'm sorry you misinterpreted my post as attitude. Wasn't supposed to be like that at all.

I am always relaxed.....well most of the time. I think I read the cap lettered words as having some attitude behind them. I was not trying to be an ass either.

Bottom line....the show was a 3.5 on a 10 scale.

I just realized that in the smiley they're beating a horse. I thought it was like a pile of junk or something, lol. Yeah that's pretty OT.

Continuing -- I never understood what this was:

Now, I realize the dude is mad, but it looks like little lumberjacks taking one of those two-person saws to his head. WTF? I had to ask about it on another thread. It turns out he's pulling out his hair.

Least-used smiley has got to be:

I don't think I've ever seen that used in any post.
