Funnily enough I thought I saw an M3 in the same colour going round the Harrogate bypass this morning; also a 67-reg so I wonder if there were a few stock cars available in that colour?
Yeah, common as muck really

Versatile.

Regular efficient/comfort mode gives a really good commute feel but with the epic front end pointiness.

Not done so much in full beans mode but it seems brutal.

1st gear seems to hold back - not figured out if thats me or a setting but will continue to play.

The seats are a revelation - a real highlight for me.

I love it.

To paraphrase Gore Vidal I think: when I see a BMW so much nicer than mine,a small part of me dies inside.
Grudging congrats!

Being a ginger and owning an M3 must be quite a rare colour combo

Saw Mark?s car this evening, wow what a beaut. Silverstone and blue just fits, perfect combo.

The exterior paint is definitely a darker blue than I had imagined, makes it look mean.

Sounds the nuts too. Can?t wait for it to be mine, although the current owner is crap at running cars in

Does look like an xDrive next to Gtsussex?s car though. Mark you know what?s coming next!
