Car: 2016 M4 CP, 2009 Supercharged E92 M3, 1987 E28 M5, 1994 Supra TT, 1966 Jag E-Type
Colour Combo: various!
Default Back to M3, M4 & M5 ownership!

New ///M Car purchased.

I've missed the E46 that I used as my track car since I sold it 18 months ago, but I have now sold the Caterham and am back to having an M3 (as well as the M4 & E28 M5) only this time I've got a V8. With a supercharger.

First impressions: rides nicer than the M4 despite being on lower springs and running on Toyo R888r rubber. Sounds glorious as it screams round to 8500rpm and on downshifts (I can't believe I've bought a DCT!), but the interior is definitely not as nice as the M4 and the drivers seat seems to way too high, I'm wondering if the electric seat height adjustment needs adjusting!!

Have not driven it properly yet, just a 40 mile motorway drive home so its first proper drive will be next Thursday. To the Nurburgring!

Having just recently come back from the Ring, and serious withdrawal symptoms, you'll love blasting your new beast around. Congrats mate.

It's because you are using imgur, use Photobucket or Flickr and the pictures will resize.
