They need to stop fussing with their bloody road cars and get their dysfunctional F1 team back on the podium.

I have been searching trying to find out, what is the steering ratio for the new M3/M4?

I tested new one M4 2016 yesterday. Steering is stiff. No difference between comfort and sport+ steering for me. No one car has so stiff steering that I tested last 2 years. I tested a lot of cars last 2 years and still cannot find a car to enjoy driving.

M4 is so small car, but difficult to handle. I did not see it until now. I have almost 5 meters long Audi A6 2006 in Europe, it is toy about handling in comparison with this M4. I can do with it what I imagine and very easy.

So, there is another option instead to buy better car for $70K. It is buy nothing. I do so.
