I can confirm that the car looks and sounds the nuts!! Even my wife stopped and asked 'what was that' when Steve nailed it off up the hill out of the village! Last time she did that it was a Zonda S going by!!

The DCT box is totally different technology to the old SMG so no surprise it doesn't feel as exciting/brutal as it has already engaged the next gear before disengaging the current one, whereas the SMG literally is just an automated manual. Am sure you'll get appreciate it far more at ten tenths at the 'ring.

Thumbs up for the Remus Race - sounded like pure-evil!

Looks smart Steve, nicely done...

I prefer the glossy look.

Any rub on the back wheels?, it looks further out than the previous motor. Or maybe just the glossy wheels and the perspective...

Very perceptive of you!!! Im actually running the 15mm spacers on the back this time and the 12mm on the front - so far no rubbing/clearance issues at all!

The M3 really is in a whole different league to the 335 in terms of how it feels and drives etc. I obviously remapped my (now your) 335 and it was/is a very quick car coupled with the Miltek etc - but it was a different power delivery and just doesnt "feel" as quick as the M3. You would have to drive the M3 for a few days and then jump back in your 335 to really understand what i mean - but trust me, if you did that you almost definitely wouldnt want to go back to your 335 given the choice. Its all about the M3 "experience" which, as good a car as it is, you just dont get with a 335. That is unless you supercharge the 335 then its game over!!!!

why I've stayed away from them! Even so, budget wouldn't stretch that far at the moment (still, got me looking at the E46 M3 just to sample that //M experience)

Have to say the car looked stunning in the flesh lastnight, the gloss wheels and bits look cool as fack.

Also car sounds mental with the remus and the blips on down shifts are to die for.

Looking good Steve,it's unusual that a sequel betters the original,are you going to try it for a third time?

Hi Ian - long time no hear buddy! Yep, had two adults in the back - funnily enough my old rugby team mates - both VERY big and VERY heavy blokes - so you could say it was a good test!!! No rubbing issues at all but car did feel a little lethargic!!!

I dont even think a supercharger would have helped - they are both props and one of my friends weighs 19 stone and the other 21 stone!!! I was more impressed that the car actually moved at all - even more that there was no fouling of the arches!!!
