Ouch... That's going to leave a mark. Hopefully everyone was OK but at least the passenger compartment is largely in tact.

Hopefully others will take note and drive with caution until they get accustomed to how fast the M3 is.
Another good reason to follow break-in protocol. Driving schools a really great idea as well.

I'm horrible person, but I laughed out loud. Somehow I had pictured myself being the first, so he took the pressure away from me

Looks like AW. With so few on the road, the impact on accidents statistics from this can't be helpful for M4 insurance premiums in Germany. Glad the kid is ok though, not the least for the sake of his generous parents.

Took an M4 out for a test drive today, and found that the car can get a little squirrely when getting on the power early out of turns. This is even with the DSC on. With it off, I probably would have lost the rear a couple of times. There will definitely be an adjustment period.
