Are you sure you want an M3? If you find understanding how the drivetrain works annoying, I don't know if this is the car you want. Maybe you should go for a test drive instead?

I think a lot of the N20 engine cars (e.g. 328i, 320i) reportedly have this excessive vibration through the manual shifter.

It looks like Francesca is also gone.

Steve Thomas hired David Aviles a few months ago... not sure if one has anything to do with the other.

Who's John? Are you referring to Jon (as in the bimmerfest founder)? If so, probably not a good idea to misspell his name while thanking him.

There isn't anything surprising here. $ for $, pound for pound, the Stingray is a better value/performance proposition than the M3.

If you don't go for the overpriced options, then you wouldn't be looking at a $90k M4 anyway, so this comparison wouldn't be fair.

Reportedly, it's 3,027cc (up from 2,979cc on N55). Another interesting spec is the return of the over-square setup (i.e. 89.6mm bore / 80mm stroke).

This is absolutely the worst review I've seen. She should stick to reviewing diet pills or cosmetic products.

People who hasn't done a ED delivery in Germany are going to have a hard time deciphering that plate.

It's pretty cool that NY has a BMWCCA plate... I wish CA would follow the suit.
