E92 M3 Track Car Build by Turner Motorsport
This black 2008 M3 coupe was brought to us by it's owner with only 4,600
miles on the clock. He asked us to transform his M3 from a street car into
a dedicated track beast, custom built to his needs. It received a TMS
fabricated "standard" race/track cage setup, MOTON coilovers, full race Exhaust (with cat-delete), software, TMS
Power Pulley, carbon fiber roof (car originally had a sunroof with steel
panel), Forgeline 18x10" non-staggered race wheels with 275 width Hoosiers,
custom built center console, retained iDrive (strictly monitoring engine
oil level and other electronic features), BMW Performance Steering wheel,
fire extinguishing system, racing harnesses, baseline suspension setup, and
many many more features and products. The end result: This M3 is FAR
lighter than a standard "street" E92 M3, and benefits from added horsepower and torque over
stock. After some track time and dialing in of both the car and driver,
this Turner-built E92 M3 will be the ultimate weapon for track days.

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.

Audi RS5 vs BMW M3 review - Auto Express
When it comes to sporting heritage, few marques can match Audi and BMW.
Both have succeeded in the white heat of competition, and proved that the
race track and rally stage are the best proving grounds for new products.
Battle of the Bimmers: BMW M3 v BMW 135i v BMW 335i
Before you start sending us flaming e-mails complaining that a comparison
between the 2008 Audi S5 and the 2008 BMW M3 Coupe is an obvious mismatch
from the get-go, you should know a few things.
Our first full test of the $53,000, all-wheel-drive 2008 Audi S5 was a bit
of a revelation. With a 354-horsepower version of Audi's
direct-injection 4.2-liter V8 under its hood, the voluptuous Audi S5 ran a
13.3-second quarter-mile at 104 mph, just 0.1 second and 2 mph shy of the
420-hp 2007 Audi RS4 sedan. What's more, the S5's slalom speed is within a
couple mph of the harsh-riding RS-spec sedan. "It ran a 13.3? With that
kind of speed, who needs a $67,000 RS4?" we asked ourselves.
We believe so strongly in the 2008 Audi S5 that it earned our Inside Line's
inaugural Editors' Choice Award.
So we acquired (hastily perhaps) another 2008 Audi S5 and set it against
the new 2008 BMW M3 Coupe, a car now fortified with V8 power for the first
time. Speed-reading the specifications sheets of these two cars, they seem
like natural rivals: the 354-hp, all-wheel-drive 2008 Audi S5 measured
against the 414-hp, rear-wheel-drive 2008 BMW M3.
But as it turns out, we gave the 2008 Audi S5 a bigger challenge than we
had initially intended.
Review: 2008 BMW M3 Sedan
In this video I review the 2008 BMW M3 Sedan! This one has a few small
modifications on it which I discuss in the video, but overall it's very
close to stock. What do you think about the M3? Two pictures from the
