My subscription copy of the-best-car-mag-in-the-world doesn't arrive til 25th ish of each month.

Have to wait and see - unless it means the current issue that I haven't had time to read yet? Doh?

Surely E92fan would have spilled the beans if it was his motor?

Evo have driven my car, but it's not my car that's featured in there... Mine will be appearing in another publication at a later stage

Yep - found it amongst the last 6 issues I haven't fully read yet!!

About 6 column inches buried in the driven section (on an E90 335i for a change!), not even mentioned in the content pages.....

Blink and you'll miss it!

378bhp - in their eyes up with the M3 on the road, but not on the track (of course). Traction is an issue in the lower gears - no, really?

Had a quick read of the article in Tesco's!
Not a lot else to add to the above...they say a few times it is no M3...but that's obvious! Not really a thorough test or write up.
They do say "in the real world" it is every bit as quick as an M3...just not round a track!!

'In the real world blah blah'

That's such an annoying phrase.

It's what my dad says when he's explaining why his 1.6 diesel Ford Fusion is a better all rounder than my 330i.
