2011 BMW M3 Road Test & Car Review - RoadflyTV with Ross Rapoport
The BMW M3 is one of the finest driver's cars ever made, and I was finally
lucky enough to spend a week with one.
The heart of the M3 is an exquisite 4.0L V8, making 414hp at a wild
8300rpm. Peak torque is 295 lb-ft, but that entire figure is available at
just 3900rpm, a stunning mark of tractability in such a high-revving
Our test car was equipped with a 7-speed DCT (BMW's name for the fancy
dual-clutch gearbox), and the transmission—like other vehicle
characteristics like throttle response and suspension—can be adjusted
from 'nice and easy' to 'neckbreaking.'
2011 M3s equipped with this transmission have gone as low as 3.9 sec to
60mph, and 12.5 sec in the 1/4-mile. Yet due to the engine's powerband,
it's remarkably civilized around town.
Gearing is perfect; even in 7th gear, the car is never caught flat-footed.
In fact, at 2000rpm in 7th the car will be going just 50mph! That is great
for acceleration, bad for fuel economy: the M3 manages just 14 mpg city and
20 highway and gets slapped with the gaz-guzzler tax.
That's really the only chink in the car's armor, and the M3 instantly
became the car by which I measure all sports cars by.

2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the all new 2011 BMW 1 series
M Coupe, a hyper performance limited production variant of the 1 series. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
Thanks again to Hendrick BMW for allowing me to film this vehicle! for

Nurburgring Lap 1M Coupe vs CSL
A lap with a Bmw 1M Coupe on the Nurburgring. The car was awesome and no
problems whatsoever. BTG lap time was 8.15 with traffic and i also needed
to back off throttle for an accident in the last part. Without traffic and
the accident under 8 min BTG is possible. I am following a CSL. Which is a
nurburgring track day car. CSL has a cage, big brakes, lightweight Exhaust and race seats en runs on pilotsport
cup tires. The 1M coupe was completely off factory. I was amazed how well
this 1M coupe runs on the Nurburgring.
