    I preferred my M3 with the M3 body wrapped round it as the back end didn't step out like a Disco does.

    I once bought a Range Rover with a 6 cyl YORK out of an A series,went well but hard to start from cold had to use that "start pilote" aerosol in the cab. They lost so many sales not getting a good diesel in their vehicles before every one else did.

    What a glorious sound - the M3, not the Cummins :thumbup:

    When BMW bought them it would have been ideal

    The M3 has a fantastic chassis but I guarantee if driven in the same whay that Disco was on that surface the M3 would have been tail happy too, it was deliberately provoked into that drift.

    Absolutely, that's the technique for cornering.

    Fangio was famous for drifting his car around corners and I'm sure he was quoted as saying "that it might not be the fastest around a corner but it was the most stylish"

    You had so much control with the M3 and you could actually steer them on a combination of throttle and very small steering inputs and if driven properly the M3 would have drifted under control.

    Could always register with a 'throw away' hotmail or gmail address, you don't have to spend time or like it over on FB.

    I would love to see the world you live in, all rainbows and unicorns

    What you have just described is exactly what the guy in the Disco was doing and exactly what you said wouldn't happen in an M3.

    Even my Veyron would have drifted round a corner like that.

    That's what I did so I could follow interest & local history groups, all my registration details are fictitious and I've even got 3 "friends"! :laughing:
