i think everything bigger than a match box struggles in THAT section

haha, for sure, an old stripped out m3 with a roll cage, manual gearbox, semi slicks would be a great dedicated track car, the V8 is just awesome

M3 is a better track car than a 1M. The S65 V8 is amazing on the track (not so much fun for city driving). The 1M doesn't overheat.

The $125k version is missing some good optional extras, so not really good value compared with $110k 1M which was fully loaded.

1M OR M3

1M OR M3 i will struggle to make the final call i love both cars. Today we have two M3 E92 cars in the shop for work and had two IMs during the day. They are a lot of fun each in there own way, i think the only way around this issue is to own both

think there's a decent reason, based on Nurburgring.

8:15 BMW 1 Series M Coupe

8:05 BMW M3 E92

8:39.2 for the BMW 135i??? didn't expect that thought it would be a lot quicker.

Just be nice if the fool can actually substantiate something for once

Maybe he could teach us something about the overheating 1M's as I'm very ignorant about this
