You guys will like this quote about the m3 from the stig

Reading the stigs (from top gear) book "man in the white suit". He talks about testing the m3 against the mercredes c63 and Audi rs4. He goes on to say that he wants to "kiss the designers" because everything is so well done.

Yeah, I read that excerpt. It was a very interesting read. He was not nearly as enamored with the C63 AMG or RS4. The best part is the "apex with the apple" passage with Jeremy which made it on film.
