Very keen!

Yes indeed. I drove 3 series for many years, then recently decided I’d take the SUV plunge. It’s an absolute pleasure to drive. Sporty, small, agile, not too heavy. And the engine and exhaust note are so sweet!

More pics, please!

The B58 engine is one fantastic engine. It's the current 3.0 liter 6-cylinder engine that BMW has been using since around 2017 on most models. It's a great closed deck engine that is very reliable and well built - and also very powerful and fairly respons...

I whole heartedly agree. I got a taste of it in my 335 years ago. But now, they have really unleashed the beast , with 382 horses to be exact . Silky smooth . When in sport mode I have never experienced any turbo lag, which makes for more linear delivery ...

The linearity of BMW engines has always surprised me. Mercedes' turbocharged 4 cylinder engine sometimes delivers the power in lumps. You can really feel the turbo kick in sometimes and there's an unwelcome surge of power. You feel it less and less these ...

Starting with the original M5, Black Bart, then an M3, M6, and a M5. I took a MX5 for a test ride and Oh brother what a SUV ;-) My M6 was black with grey leather and the best looking by far

Sounds awesome !

Thanks Thomas 3!

BMW does the details very well.

 By: MichaelC : January 24th, 2023-03:32
I owned an M4 for 2 months last year and loved the same details. The build quality and materials were so enjoyable.


 By: Aquaracer1 : January 24th, 2023-04:42

Only 2 months ???

You ended up in jail and sold it ? I know I would , driving an M4.
