M3 didn't win in the car park outside Jayway Tools in Kettering today.
I was just leaving and a tool company sales representative was coming
in, in an M3. Granted, F600 JVJ does look _NEAT_ after the bodywork
was done - but the look of sheer envy was unmistakable. I was actually
quite impressed with the "fit and finish" of the M3 - much better than
I remember from the cars of three or four years ago. He, OTOH, simply
drooled over the ur-quattro. His problem is that his fleet insurance
company simply won't insure a car over five years old. We had a good
long chat - bonnets were raised and engine technology compared. Quite
interesting. I think BMW have made some progress.
