Check out Road & Track’s recent review of five V8 supercars in disguise. Each features supercar perfromance, raucous V8 engines and four doors.
Highlights regarding the F10 M5:
The Audi’s V8 sounds more cumulonimbus than Days of Thunder, and once up to banked-oval speeds, we’re surprised to see the M5 scream past it. The BMW’s twin-turbo V8 sounds nothing like any of the others; the Bavarians’ ingenious, patented crossover exhaust manifold gives each exhaust pipe an evenly spaced pulse of air, so the wail coming from … CONTINUED
A new M235i owner shares with us his review of the car against his 135i, which he still currently owns.
Well fellas, I finally took delivery of my M235, late yesterday here in Indiana, and I wanted to provide some initial thoughts to others on the forum.

BMW M235i review by XCAR:
The BMW M235i is a rare thing. It’s the kind of car that just feels… right. It makes you feel special, and it makes me wonder whether BMW needs release an M2 at all.
