You guys remember about 13 years ago in 97 when the e36 m3 won best handling car period! Well the new "mass ladened" (my phrase) M3 landed 4th. Disappointing. I think the thing handles pretty darned well. C&D's Oct 2010 isnt up on its website yet, when it gets up I'll link it. Wish BMW would bring a LTW M3 back.
