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 screamer. 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. —Ross Rapoport, Road Test Editor and Video Host Download the window sticker and see additional photos of the M3 at http://roadflytv.com Vehicle: 2011 M3 Coupe Base Price: $58,400 Price as tested: $69,925 Engine: 4.0L 32V V8 Transmission: 7-speed dual-clutch automated manual (DCT) horsepower: 414 @ 8300 rpm Torque: 295 lb.-ft. @ 3900 rpm 0-60 MPH: 3.9-4.5 sec.

Roadfly.com - 2011 Range Rover Review & Road Test
The 2011 Range Rover is the ultimate off-road machine, and it's been recently updated for more luxury and a more functional interior, as well as improved aesthetics inside and out. It has a 5.0L V8 producing 375hp and 375 lb-ft. of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic with "CommandShift" function channeling power through all 4 wheels. The Range Rover buffs its off-road credentials with a two-speed transfer case of the electronic variety, with an electronic center differential. There's a dizzying array of off-road specific driver-controlled settings to play with, like Gradient Release Control and Hill Descent Control, as well as the advanced "Terrain Response System" with settings for General, Snow, Mud, Sand, and Rock. Our test car wore almost $12,000 in optional equipment, pumping its as-tested price up to $90,735 from a starting MSRP of $78,835. Those options were a $1700 audio system upgrade, a $4600 "Luxury Interior Package," a $1000 "climate glass and 4-zone AC" system, $1250 for reclining rear seats and $2500 for rear-seat DVD entertainment.

Roadfly.com - 2011 BMW 5 Series 535i Road Test & Review
For 2011 BMW completely redesigned the 5 Series. The 2004 - 2010 5 series was successful but wasn't able to maintain the momentum of the previous generation 5 Series mostly due to its styling. The 2011 5 Series changes all that! The new car is styled similarly to the new 7 Series with a visually long hood and aggressive front end. Our test vehicle came with the 3.0 liter twin turbo mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Also available is a new XF 8-speed automatic transmission. All 2011 BMWs come with BMWs no cost maintenance program and a 4 year/50,000 mile warranty. Host Ross Rapoport road tests and reviews the new BMW 5 Series and compares it to the Mercedes-Benz E Class and Audi A6 as well as Japanese competition like the Infiniti M56. Vehicle: 2011 BMW 535i Base Price: $49,600 Price as tested: $66,175 Engine: Inline 6 cylinder, twin turbo Transmission: 6-speed manual horsepower: 300 hp / 300 lb-ft torque 0-60 MPH: 5.7 seconds Warranty: 4 years or 50,000 miles maintenance included EPA: 19 city / 28 highway MPG Host: Ross Rapoport Roadfly.com - http://www.roadfly.com Car Forum - http://www.roadfly.com/forums RoadflyTV - http://www.youtube.com/roadflytv Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/roadfly Twitter - http://twitter.com/roadfly IMDB - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1790415/





Roadfly.com - 2012 Porsche Cayman R Test Drive & Car Review
The 2012 Porsche Cayman R was one of the most-anticipated cars to ever come through the Roadfly office. The car's stats are simply stunning: 0-60mph in 4.7 sec. 330hp @ 7500rpm, 2855 lb. Even the door handles have been replaced with nylon tabs to reduce weight. The results are predictable. The Cayman R is virtually telepathic, to the point that it nearly bores you. It's so free of vice that you start to feel that it's just like a normal, civilized car, with a tad more immediacy...and you wonder what the big deal is. Only when you go back to your daily driver do you realize how responsive the Cayman actually is. It's a nearly perfect machine. It makes few compromises that interfere with spirited driving, but still manages to be completely docile, tractable, and even practical with its two trunks and stellar reliability. It also gets great fuel mileage, at 19 city and 27 highway when equipped with the 6-speed manual. Ever gone to a movie that didn't blow you away at first, but weeks later you're still thinking about it and can't get it out of your head? That's what my days with the Cayman R left me with. This car is definitely on my 'short list' of cars I want to own before I die. It's slightly expensive with a starting MSRP of $66,300, but given how well-built Porsches are in general and how good their resale values are, the price is fair in my opinion.

Roadfly.com - 2011 Mazda RX-8 Review & Test Drive
The Mazda RX-8 is, simply put, one of the most pure sports cars currently being sold. At just over 3,000lb., it is incredibly agile and will stack up handling-wise with anything you can think of. Like most 'handling-first' sports cars, its acceleration is not devastating. It's the only passenger car to use a rotary engine, a 1.3L wonder of smoothness and revs, delivering 232 horsepower at 8,500 rpm and spinning all the way past 9,000! It's a bit short on torque, with just 159 lb.-ft at 5,500 rpm. But for those who like this kind of driving experience, that won't matter. Other quirks are a high appetite for fuel, and Mazda's own recommendation that you check the rotary's oil level...every time you fill up the gas tank! It's nicely packaged, though, with real seating for four adults, suicide doors to access the rear seats, and plenty of storage and a rear-seat pass-through. At $33,055 as tested, it's unlike anything else on the market. And that's worth a lot more than $33 large. —Ross Rapoport, Road Test Editor and Video Host Visit http://roadflytv.com for more pictures and a downloadable window sticker.

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.
