I've been watching the new Best Motoring and thought I'd pass on what I could understand.
They tested the new M3 on a very wet Tsukuba race track against the STi WRX, EVO VII, Skyline, Porsche 996, NSX, and RX-7 TT.
They finished:
1. EVO VII (by a large margin)
2. Skyline GT-R
3. Porsche 996 C2
4. NSX
5. M3 (was in 3rd til he blew a shift at the end)
6. Impreza WRX STi
7. RX-7 Twin Turbo

- on the track the Impreza WRX STi driver kept shouting 'understeer!' and 'slow on the straights'
- the M3 woulda beat the NSX and STi on the wet track, but the guy
missed a shift on the last lap (he apologized).
- they picked the new M3 as most fun to drive (engine feel, brake feel,
steering, stability etc.) - best in all categories - 2nd was 996 Carrera
2, 3rd was NSX, 4th Skyline GT-R, and fifth the RX-7.
- The Porsche and NSX were the easiest to drift, but M3 great also. They said the RX-7 was really tough to drive smoothly (in
wet).

Did you buy the VCD from Hong Kong, or you got the Japanese Video? I'm interested to see the M3.

Borrowed the video from one of the guys at work. I don't have video capture or I'd post some videos.
