Thanks for the review. Is the M3 really that different (better than) the M coupe you own? Enough to warrant buying an M3 to replace the one taken from you? Never driven an M Coupe, I would have assumed given the same engine the M coupe would be even better than the M3.

Enjoyed the video Glenn! Anyone know who the owner of this car is on here? Car looked great. German owner made it even better.

Glenn do you still have plans to review Ian (Obioban)'s car? Would love to hear your thoughts on one of the most well sorted, documented, well modded street driven NA E46 M3s. I'm fairly sure his car would be more akin to rivaling the CSL more so than a standard E46 M3.

Does anyone else cringe at shuffle-steering?

You should rename your channel to Glenn Constantly Talking About His Car Getting Stolen.

Thanks for the review Glenn- you seem very passionate about your cars.

A little advice though, you're edits and camera angles could help improve the "production quality" of your videos-- they were all over the place and bounced around. I know video editing is time consuming but some polishing up can go a long way. just my if you don't mind some input.

How does an e46 m3, or any bmw with coding to the ECU via key, get stolen? Did they take it off on a truck? That's a bummer man.
