The title suggests I am selling the M3, but that is not certain just yet. What is definite however, is that this is my last update.
It's an unfortunate truism that all good things must come to an end. And whilst I adored my M5, warts and all, in the end the roses had to be smelt and it had to make way for something slightly more wallet-friendly.
Well, it has taken me some time to put metaphorical pen to paper, but having now owned the 135iâ€™s replacement for near-on 8 months, I thought it was about time to put you all out of your misery!
I have now driven 38 000 km since I bought the car and it has been dead reliable. I still look forward to almost any journey in the M3 and with summer here, the driving experience is only enhanced.
The economy is in melt-down, petrol prices have gone through the roof, all is doom and despondency. Good time then to buy a German rocketship that does 8mpg around town...
Like MP3 vs Vinyl, the inexorable rise of the Dual Clutch Gearbox has caused its fair share of debate among car enthusiasts. There is no doubt that a DCT/DSG box (or whatever you want to call it) makes acceleration and rapid gear swapping more efficient..
It's been a long winter, but spring has arrived and RJ is back in session.
Well, after reporting hankering for something new in my last report, itâ€™s goodbye to the 130i. After procrastinating for months and months, Iâ€™ve finally done it.
540i given a second life
After a year of M3 ownership and 20 000 km of driving, the car still puts a smile on my face.
