    2 too many doors for an M3

  • Jim Sim

    Awesome car. Would take an M3 Pure any day of the week.

    • Jonty

      Agree, M3 Pure (looks great in white) would be my choice.

  • gazza

    Great engine, great handling, great dynamics but WHY do they have to be so UGLY???????? BMW have not made a good looking car for a long time.

    • Roadtard

      The current 3 Series coupe is easily the best looking Beemer – especially in black. Most other models look overcooked.

    • Devil’s Advocate

      Still looks better than the majority of HSVs that look like they hired a bunch of pre-school children to stick on bits of random plastic wherever they feel. Then they searched ebay for the cheapest looking LED light strips they could find and then glued them to the front bumper at the last minute…. ;-)

  • Hector

    Audi are still winning in the looks department (both inside and out) though BMW still deliver in the driver’s “feel” department. still the car for purists.

  • jess

    nice car but surely only “around 45kg” isn’t going to make that much of a difference, that weight difference could be achieved by using a really scrawny driver as opposed to a fat one. To make enough of a difference for it to be called CRT I think at least 100kgs should have been shaved off

    gazza – you are a tool
