Subaru BRZ right after E90 M3... my review. [VIDEO]

I absolutely LOVED my silverstone E90 M3. Flawless powerplant, heroic power, gorgeous looks.

However, recently I sold it (received a good offer) and ended up back into a Japanese sportscar, the Subaru BRZ. Away from BMWs for now, but I shall return!

This may be interesting to those of you who may want an inexpensive 2nd car as a track toy, or something to drive economically (so much cheaper on fuel) while keeping miles off the beloved M3s.

Ok, here's my first and very humble video review. Hopefully it's at least a little bit interesting to you guys. Thanks for watching.

BRZ is a sports car? No.

Glad you're happy with it, but not for me.

Also, daily drive your M3s folks. They are not rare exotics. Enjoy your car!!

It's certainly a sports car. So are the S2000 and Miata.

I think sports car is a highly subjective term.

What kind of gear did you use to make this video and do you have a ballpark of the costs? I would love to do reviews like this; yours was very well done!

Hold out for the BRZ STI or... Rocket Bunny FRS. Update: Scratch that. I've got a 2015 5.0/6MT with my name on it.

wow dude awesome review!! it was really good : ).

I know what you mean about having to work for the power. I enjoy revving my 128i without breaking the speed limit, it is fun.

I was looking at a BRZ as well, among other cars, but I think M235i will do it for me : ). I was hoping the BRZ sti would come out sooner but i guess not : (

Awesome video. I'd love to get my hands on one for a test drive, but unfortunately haven't had a chance to do so.

That review was succinct and outstanding. The videography was especially impressive. Some of those shots would not feel out of place on a TV advert.
