MISS MY M3s

Niall, via email

Well done to MOTOR on the M3 special feature in the June 2017 issue. There was a wrong footer on some pages, but thank you.

Having owned an E36 and E46 M3 I’d almost forgotten how incredible they were to drive and be in.

Don’t get me wrong, my current German all-wheel drive turbo is bloody quick, but it wants everyone to know about it. It rides a bit harsh, too. My M3 (E46) was the exact opposite and I’ll never forget a drive to Denman when my wife was flicking through a magazine while we were travelling well over the posted speed limit. I heard every page turn as if we were in a library and all she said when we arrived was “wow, that didn’t take long”.
