Cool video from Fastlanedaily's Leo Parente, who traveled to the ALMS race at Lime Rock (which the BMW team won) to speak with the ALMS team, engineers, and driver about how the production M3 compares to the M3 GT race car.

Nice video

Cool to hear about the rear suspension being something the ALMS officials was pushing for and not BMW themselves trying to find loopholes in the regulations.

And now they have changed their mind according to rumors huh?
Don´t hate the player hate the game.

BMW will dominate this season, 3 straight wins should put enough fear in their competitors i´m sure

Interesting video.

Funny detail - looks like the car has a "service engine soon" light on at 6:12.

Great video! Qualifying on Friday when this was shot was rainy but race day (Saturday) was a perfect day. Lime Rock is a great track to watch the ALMS and M3s racing and is spectator friendly. Love to see more M3 Post members there next year cheering on the BMW Team RLL M3s!!!

The car did not even have a nav. BMW if you are going to give a car reporter a car please make sure it has all the options.

And your issue is???

Matter of perspective, when I saw it I thought, "finally, a purist M3 without I-drive in a PR shot."

Of course, I'm a little biased...
