Just back now after 600 mile round trip , great day yesterday , nice to meet some of the lads from NI BMW and new faces from here

TSW what a car mate seriously @ Wayne (superted) my god lad that exhaust makes some beautiful music
John that's one serious weapon you got yourself , I was shocked during the spin you took me on , but not a hope in hell I'd fit behind that steering wheel
that thing seriously shifts , it's far faster than any E46 M3 I've ever driven or been in


Was a good meet and an interesting drive up , thanks Marlow , all il say is thank fook you didn't have the M5 with you

Had a good drive up the coast afterwards and some good food , then back to Belfast for a few scoops topped off with some excellent live music and to end the night a trip to the local kebab shop all in all a good way to spend 2 days
Look forward to the next one .

Same engine, it's being said there quicker than a 46M but still not as fast as a CLS.

Yup really , well they are a fair bit lighter so that's probably the main reason they are quicker , and as Bart said they have the same engine as a standard E46 M3, I think the exhaust system sounds a bit better on it as well , not as tinney if ya know what I mean, just a bit louder , they are Definately not as practical a car as the E46 m3 though
