2008 BMW M3  [3.95]
Short Ride in Gintani Stage 3 Supercharged M3

Nothing special, just driving to work..

Wanted to make a video showing how fast the car really is but I can't since there was no room on the highway.

Next time I'll get a better video with the camera closer to the speedo.. Sorry

You can get a feel for the car near the end of the video.




More to come.

Josh

And people wonder why BMW drivers get a bad rap. Looks like fun though.

Sorry, I should have mounted the camera closer.. On my computer you can read the speedo perfectly but thats because the quality is huge.. I hit 150 on that last pull.

Not sure why BMW get a bad rep for having a fast car but I've never got any complaints.. Normally thumbs ups and people's mouth dropping with the expression "wow".

Thanks for your concern though.

There were some moments of brilliance in there. Would have loved to have had better sound.
