When you are driving something from the M Department, drift happens. –
An old saying goes; never meet your heroes. What this suggests is that the image in your head is often more romantic than reality. We proved them wrong, because how good that E46 is! It was the third generation of the 3-series stable that BMW’s “Motorsport” department was allowed to get involved with. A bunch of fanatics where only one thing matters; going rebelliously hard. Very hard. Sideways, and all that.
When you wake up the 3.0 six-in-line you are treated to that iconic screech they only manage in Munich. HP count? According to BMW M somewhere between 343 and 360. Enough to slot in with in any case. Its Silver Grey Metallic accentuates the thicker hips and well-shaped side-skirt. The “Gurney flap” (must be German humor) and the four pipes give much away; we’re not going to describe it as modest, either. Rather as a car that is “aware of its significant status,” especially among BMW enthusiasts like us.
Ours, of course, is a little extra special; she’s just the way you want -M- to be. Dealer serviced, 100 on the odometer, AND it’s a coupe which ensures that the car has the rigidity you’re looking for. So, are you treating yourself to a also rationally interesting lord of the ring? We’ll see you soon.
Taking coffee in the car is for douchebags. – BMW M-department
