Me too. good find. Still does the best mix of street and track, especially for the price. I hope they get them rolling out soon!

Because they're a European brand, and we have some stupidly strict emission regulations going on in Europe these days.

Look at the front around 2:38. It doesn't appear to boast that full top to bottom grill.

Here's a head on shot with a different grill config showing. Maybe testing engine temps with less air flow?

Could be wrong but i don't believe that was a recent shot, this video looks to be a cut of multiple different videos of the M3 testing over time. That looks to be one of the very early mules

I don't understand why we "need" a V8. The S55 is a terrific engine! I don't miss my V8 ///M3's at all.
