2009 BMW M3 Sedan: It's Party Time

May 27, 2009


As you can see, this sticker, which is essentially stuck in the driver's face, dictates that our new long-term 2009 BMW M3 sedan gets a mild break in; no full throttle and a 106 mph max speed for the first 1,200 miles and only short periods at top speed and constant cruising at 137 mph until the odometer clicks past 3,100 miles.

Well, the day has come.


On my way into work this morning the M3 clicked past the magic number. The reins are officially off.

On a related note, I think I'll sign out the M3 for the weekend.

Scott Oldham, Inside Line Editor in Chief @ 3,143 miles.
