Parking Lot Test Drive Annihilates Stanced E36 M3 BMW

If you’re up for a few laughs, then the video posted below will definitely do its best to extract them from you. The YouTube title may contain the word "review", but it’s not really that.

What it is is a narration of an editorial, peppered with occasional well-placed profanity (that's a NSFW warning right there) and loosely based around the idea of (not) stancing one’s car in general or this yellow BMW M3 E36 in particular.

The reviewer wonders why the model is such a big hit in the US' stancing community, given the fact that it’s not all that special and to make matters worse it also comes from a time when cars were easily forgettable. Moreover, the US version wears a weaker engine than the Euro equivalent, as well as some lower grade components in the drivetrain.

The E36 M3 is still a nice car, but as this video advises, if you want to buy one and enjoy it when it’s not parked, then you’re better off not leaving the suspension as it is; you’ll lose some curbside appeal but possibly gain a driver’s car.

Feel free to add your thoughts after having scrolled down and clicked play.
