GQ (Australia) - - MOTOR -

Much was said about this brutish head­turner when it was an­nounced as the re­place­ment to the ever-so-fun M3 coupé. The cho­rus of wail­ing grew even louder on learn­ing the new­comer would ditch the high-revving V8 donk in favour of a 3.0L straight six turbo. Such moan­ing, how­ever, clearly came from those with­out a ticket to ride, as any­one with even a pass­ing in­ter­est in beasts built on four wheels would be hard-pressed to file a com­plaint about this near-per­fect fly­ing ma­chine – a car that craves you make the most of ev­ery drive, be it an early hours at­tack on coastal cor­ners or a pared-back mis­sion to pack the boot with gro­ceries. A true multi-tasker, and car we strug­gled to re­turn.
