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.

BMW M Performance Exhaust vs. stock OEM exhaust on 2011 E92 M3
1:1 comparison between stock OEM Exhaust and the BMW M Performance Exhaust. Same 2011 E92 M3. Same camera. Same
distance from car. Hopefully this will help give an idea of what it sounds
I am going to have to get some different video together, because what
doesn't come across here are the wonderful harmonics of the M Performance
Exhaust under higher rev acceleration
(not idle revving).

Weekend Fun With The M3
I put a few more miles on the M3 this past weekend and just threw this clip
together for the hell of it. Some high speed runs, drifts, and launches.
Overall, nothing in this video is too crazy. I know this is more car than I
can handle 100% right now and I'm still in the process of getting to know
the cars character and limits. Overall, it's a great car and it's beyond
what I was expecting.

BMW SWITCH: Honey, where's my car!
Location: Our victim's house
Accomplice: G., his wife.
What was switched: BMW 3 Series standard specifications to BMW 3 Series
fully fitted with BMW Performance Accessories including engine tuning, Exhaust, interior and exterior
When G. contacted us to switch her husband's beloved BMW 3 Series, we
jumped at the chance. With her help, we managed to fit her house with
hidden cameras and microphones to capture J.'s reaction when he stepped out
of the door -- to find his BMW 3 Series gone and in its place, a completely
different BMW 3 Series with fiercer looks and even fiercer performance.
Watch it now.
Unfortunately, this phase of the BMW Switch has concluded. But we warmly
welcome you to experience BMW Performance Editions exclusively at
Performance Motors. Call 6319 0100/500 to book your test drive.
