Top Gear Worst Car Ever loves M3

To help bash the X3, they celebrated how great the M3 is/was. Anyone know what the 1000 pound get 4000 pound special edition was?

Saw this again last night. They couldn't praise the car enough. Amazed that none of them own one and so are they. They mentioned that as well.

A couple stand-out Clarkson quotes:

It is... pretty much perfect.

Why don't I have one of these cars?

American TV sucks. Those "bleeps" don't even exist on the actual BBC torrents of the show from the UK.

I might also add you can get the show that way Sunday evening, instead of waiting for the US version on Monday.

The show airs Sunday in the UK -- the time difference means that by around 7-8PM EST the UK show has already aired, been ripped/encoded and uploaded. Up to date links can usually be found on http://www.eztv.it

It was a DVD released in November 2012, and was never aired; they finally did a broadcast.

(Probably, they felt bad about having only a six-episode Season 20 this time around!)

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

Surprised Clarkson liked it, he only seems to say good things about Ferraris and MBs.

Saw that segment last night for the first time. I wonder what this edition was. Looked very similar to the Edition M3 which had blacked out stock 19s and black chrome kidney and gill bits.

In any case, nice to see them choose the M3 to hoon around in to demonstrate that BMW makes amazing cars outside of the X3.

He used to say great things about BMW cars, but shit on the brand. I guess it was the cool/popular brand, and he's a bit of a contrarian so he went against the stream. How many times have you heard him say 'I would pick this because it's worse'. Dozens.

Now Audi is getting 'the cool brand' popularity (movie stars and crap), so Clarkson bashes everything Audi and can give well deserved praise to the special BMW cars like the E9X M3, without being too mainstream.

He actually admitted that the latest 911 was a very fine car in the episode, before bashing an old 911 (for always actively trying to kill its driver).
