I’ll be honest: there are colleagues in our editorial team who are more delighted with this car than I am. Jan Horn, Alexander Bernt, Guido Naumann, Stefan Novitski …
I’ll put it in my own words: Shifting into second gear after a completely unintentional drift at an intersection puts a grin on my face and elicits the kids behind (yes, he can do everyday life, he M3, at BMW is the name of the “athletic four-door 3-box design”) a happy screeching.
Show-off effect: That M.-Logo lights up when opening the car. First quick conclusion: On long journeys I would like to see a few more gears and fewer tours. But I’m back to the beginning: I’m probably the only one who bothers.
The BMW M3 in the AUTO BILD endurance test
• Price of the test car with extras: 111,640 euros
• Driven so far: 6752 km
• Test consumption: 10.2 l SP / 100 km
• Top: Endless power and dynamism, top quality, connected to the stand, and language is also possible.
• Not so good: Save the light leather. You have to be able to use the hand switch. Consumption higher, of course.
