Here are my thoughts…

Looks: The F80 simply looks FANTASTIC! Especially, in the MG! YMB and SS … CONTINUED

We recently traveled to Road America in Wisconsin to sample the new M4 and M3 for the North American press launch. As a previous owner of a Silverstone II 6 speed E90 M3, I was excited to drive the new Ms to find out how they compare!

Manual Purists Rejoice

The first piece of great news about the new M4 and M3 is that BMW offers the three pedal manual transmission as standard.

Some members have asked whether the new manual transmission retains the same rubbery shift … CONTINUED

Here is a translated version of some of the highlights of Sport Auto review of the F80 M3 and F82 M4.
