2009 BMW M3: Power dome
October 08, 2009
This is the view you command when you're behind the wheel of our long-term 2009 BMW M3.
The power dome in the hood is in plain view. You don't need any M badges to remind you that this is the 3-series big dog.
Just glance out the windshield and look at that bulge: it tells you that this isn't just another USC-stickered 328 that litters the West Side of Los Angeles.
This is the all-conquering, magnificent-sounding, V8-powered M3, at the height of its existence.
Because, as Josh said, it's all downhill from here.
