New M3 delivery

One of the great perks of being a snarky motoring journalist aside from say... getting to drive the odd Porsche RS Spyder, must be getting early deliveries of hot new cars you might have ordered. Let's live vicariously though Autocar's Chris Harris and these two videos of his brand new white BMW M3.

The first clip reminds me of Stee. He is just that way, when he sets his mind on something it has to be "just so"!

The second one reminds me of when CG and I were at the 'ring except with better tires and a cheaper car. Even though I suspect editing on the camera friendly powerslide moments, hats off to Harris for having the honesty to admit he actually left the DSC on and for recording a very track-tard like review of the new M3...

NOTE: Apparently Vimeo is having some issues today, if the clips do not work try reloading the page or checking in later. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  1. Great Video.
    Brings good memories from my trips to the Ring. That's exactly how it feels in the wet.
    Also, good to see a mere mortal of similar ability to ours comment on a lap around Wet green hell...

  2. OK, I changed my mind. He was only a whiney dorothy in Segment 1. On the N'ring, I think he was quite reasonable.


  3. Freep, are you saying Stee is a whiney Dorothy?

  4. Well, let's face it, Stee would've still found a way to complain about M3 brake fade during those wet laps. :P
