Video: Track day at the Yas Marina circuit on board an E63 BMW M3

Sports cars like an E36 BMW M3, no matter how people look at them, belong more to a track than they do on the road. So if you own one, it might be a good idea to stretch the legs of your tuned-up M3 and run it against cars of its caliber. Get the necessary specs and add-ons, install them in your car, bring it to a world-class track like the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi, and have some competitors line up against you. Of course, taking a video of your exploits on the track would be a nice bonus too. At the very least, you can show the world - or at least anyone who takes the time to watch your video - your mad driving skills. Just be sure not to crash.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Impressive performance! m3 is one of the best sports car created by my BMW. It’s handling capabilities are still reliable just like new.

I honestly can’t stand the rear end styling of the M3 Coupe and convertible models. The sedan truly is the top dog. My beef with this one in particular— dual clutch rather than an old fashioned own-rower. Yes, traffic in L.A., technology, basically the same speed and efficiency numbers— it’ll never be the same feel.
