My wife and I just returned from Munich, where we took delivery of our new 2008 E92 M3. We put 1,822 glorious miles on it while in Europe, including some careful laps of the Nurburgring, as well as a trip to the French GP in Magny Cours. The car is a dream, and a magnet for stares and cameras. Everywhere we went in both countries, we heard "M Drei!" and "Regardez! M Trois!" A year after its introduction, this car is still definitely not a common sight in Europe. The only other one we saw not in captivity was on the Nordschleife. If you have not encountered one yet, the biggest surprise may be the sound. The wonderful V8 is completely different from the straight six. The low growl at 3,000 rpm turns to a full howl at 5,000 rpm. I found myself going out of my way to drive through tunnels. As I was limited to 5,500 rpm and 110 mph during the 2,000 mile break in period, I can only imagine the unholy things air is made to do at 8,400 rpm. If you're considering ordering this model, I highly recommend the "M-Drive" feature. This allows you to use the iDrive to program all of your preferred performance settings, including suspension, steering input, throttle response and traction control level. Having done so, if you're driving along and out of nowhere pops a 911 and some curves, you simply press the "M-Drive" button on the steering wheel and, presto: instant race car. I could go on for pages and pages, but I won't use up any more disk space. If you want a full review or you have questions about any aspect of ED, let me know and I'd be happy to go into detail. But in short, it is a five-star experience not to be missed. They really make you feel like VIPsÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦..Especially if you pull away in a new M3.
