2015 BMW M3

 

 

This is my dream car since I was a boy.  The first M3 came out in 1986.  I was a student at Manchester University then.   I went to the showroom from time to time just to sit in it.  The salesman tolerated me.  Then, I told myself, “one day”.  And today is that one day.   This 2015 grey metallic M3 is now my mount.  It is awesome.  I have never driven a car that has 431 bhp.  The most impressive part of driving it is its torque.  Everything is so instant now.

My new M3 has all the extras.  Grey metallic outside, full merino leather inside.  With the optional adaptive M suspension, I can set it to cruse in comfort mode and to race in sport mode.  Apart from the sound of the engine, which I do not really enjoy too much, the Harmon Kardon Surround Sound System with 600W and 16 speakers (can you find them?) is more than capable of playing faithfully Mahler symphony 3.  The Head-Up display ensures that I do not need to take my eyes off the road ahead.  The 7-gear M dual clutch transmission retires my left foot.  At night, the Adaptive LED Headlight lets me see afar.  Comfort Access Keyless opens the door for me without me looking for my key.  The 19 inch M wheels ensure that the car is firmly planted on the road, especially around corners.

Given that HK Govt levies 100% tax for new car, my M3 is not cheap, nor value for money.  I reckon that for my Hong Kong M3, I can buy a M3 in the UK, and have enough left over to pick up a BMW i3.   However, does that matter?  Is it just a car, or is it a dream comes true.  The real question is: what is next?  I suspect it is going to be an electric, zero emission and green super car that “floats”.
