Fifth Gear episode - E90 M3 vs some beefy cabrios

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Great episode featuring the old e90m vs some beefy cabrios. Of course it lost out to the sl63 with performance pack - almost 700llbft of torque?! - and the r8 v10 in straight line race. But the saloon beat the maserati! haha. Aslo has a m135i vs bmw sport bike in the episode as well. Nice little bmw cameos. Now, I need to learn to drive like these guys/girl. Sorry to those that have already seen it!

Thx for finding this! Saw the episode a couple of weeks ago on the TV but couldn't find the online link. Love it how these guys and Top Gear have used the E90 in a couple of episodes to compare to other cars (TG had a cornering speed test where E90 was also featured vs others including the GTR).

Maserati, to US, or especially in NY/NJ, is really for those who want 6 series conv but have some more money to burn and want something more exotic.
it is sad the way I say about Maserati, considering their history and all, but that's just the truth these days.
I got to see the new Maserati quattroporte sedan, and man.. I don't know what they did to the new car, they made a ship and not a sporty,luxury, full size sedan.

it can still misfire. just because it doesn't have spark plugs doesn't mean there isn't air and fuel that combusts within the cylinders.

Love that R8 V10. Glad it won.

Am I the only one now that wants to try that one hand poseur style of driving for a lap around a track?
