2015 BMW M3 Tracked at Mid Ohio by Justin Bell (Motortrend)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Quote:
The historic Mid-Ohio Raceway roared to life this week with the sound of power, M Power. In an unprecedented show of force, the brand brought together every generation of M3 street and race cars and invited Justin along for the ride. Of course, he couldn't wait to get behind the wheel of the all new 2015 BMW M3 to record some of the first driving impressions on the latest evolution of a legend.

I think the press is trying to say, that women are not the usual buyer group of these. Oh well, I like being in the minority.

I'll post you the first review that will come out in my language, it'll be like six months, and due to the inability all finnish men share, there will probably be three to four words said in it.

As communicators, we really suck. As reporters we are even worse.

He is a fine example of the communicating skills.
The normal dude, the only one who reviews these for us (well, "only"), his greatest talent is that he can make wonderful subject sound like funeral speech.

When this car lands on a dyno, I wouldn't be surprised if the engine is found to be an overachiever. Seems to be a trend for BMW these days.
