10/10 would still rather have the E9x M3.

Being fast around a track is one thing. A high revving V8 FR layout with a manual is everything.

Good Lord, stop whining!! He was merely trying to pass along information. If anything, it shows how solid the E90 M3:

Honestly the focus should be the E90 M3. Look at what it is competing with on those lap times relative to it's age.

Lol at RC F

IIRC, the Nürburgring record Type-R was far from stock. Would not be surprised if that were the case here as well.

Uhm yes? no? doesn't matter?

Relax people. It's just a metric to measure against and a nod to the E90 M3's status/capabilities.

Put the same brand and model tires on the E90 then let's see how they compare. Tire technology alone has evolved dramatically in the past 12 years.

Touring looks better than new sedan but still no 6MT.

Is the touring even coming to the US?
