E90 M3 versus a lot:)

UK carmag CAR tests a few hothatches/supersaloons/supersportscars on a track with Darren Turner(Aston Martin DBR9 GT1 2008 Le Mans winner with codrivers Braham and Garcia) as the testdriver. Nice results for the M3 saloon in it's class!

Yep, the X6.35i with more than 2 tons was actually a better 4wd car than the Audi RS6 according to the CAR people

.35i engine is a blast, I 'll remember it as a better DD engine than my current M V8.(My former car was a 335i sport E90 6 manual)

Great couple of videos. Thanks for sharing.

One thing I couldn't determine from watching was the transmission on the M3. 6MT or DKG?

Also, has anyone (Auto Motor und Sport) done a definitive track test to see if the DKG car does run faster on a circuit?
