BMW 330d MSport in cabin view @ Marulan Driver Training Centre
This is an in cabin view of a BMW 330d M Sport at the Marulan Driver Training Centre. This car has BMW performance enhancements which were entirely cosmetic at the time of making this video, i.e. it was mechanically completely stock.
I managed a 48 second best lap on the last of the initial 5 laps shown despite a 8/10ths committed driver, street Pirelli P Zero rubber while getting uncomfortably close to the rear bumper bar of the unrelenting black Subaru GTB in front. I suspect that better lap times could have been obtained with softer race tires and more efficient power-band gear changes (I set the shift lights too high). But, overall 48 seconds was a decent result for the day.
The chassis poise and balance of this vehicle is phenomenal. With a seasoned car CV spanning 2 decades I can comfortably say that this is probably one of the most well balanced cars I have ever driven.
This is the first and likely the last time this car will ever see a race track which is a real shame. Being an ex-Mercedes Benz mechanic, I never really believed all the nerds and motoring journos' that would constantly drone on and on about the poise and deftness of the 3 series chassis. Well on my last lap with DTC off and me chasing the rear end of that Scooby I became, a believer... The sharpness of the turn-in, the confidence it inspires in you to push the envelope is second to none for car in this class I feel.
In my opinion its pretty damn impressive that I could have this much fun on track in a car that I drive to the Aussie bush, for work, on a weekly basis wherein it gently cossets me in seamless comfort for some 750Kms/week with great fuel economy to boot!. Its clear to see why the 3 series is so popular in europe.
Hope you enjoy the video...
BMW E46 330d -29C cold start, Finland
The car has been sitting in the cold for 3 days without being started, the temperatures were all the time around -25 to -30 in celsius. Defa heater was on for about 3 hours and I also have integrated battery charger so battery was full. Windows are clean because i have internal heater also, and cleaned the windows from snow before the video. First the ignition key slipped out from between my fingers, thats why I had to do a second try. Location is 300km north from the arctic circle, Koppelo-Ivalo, Lapland, Finland.

2014 Nissan GT-R vs. BMW M6 0-60 MPH Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 Nissan GT-R is perhaps the world's best supercar bargain and the flagship car for the Japanese Nissan brand. The BMW M6 is also a flagship for the BMW and represents the most power and technology the German Car maker can cram into a sports car. Both cars are very similar in many important ways. They both have two doors, two turbos and four seats. The both have dual clutch transmissions and they both both have superb engines that produce over 500 HP. But the while the M5 uses a roaring V8 the Nissan GT-R makes do with a hand-built six cylinder. So which of these monster machines is faster to 60 MPH and which one is the better car. Check out another fun and informative TFLcar video Mashup video review as we find out.
