What do you expect from its successor, the BMW M3 G80, which will be launched later this year?
I've already had the honour of taking an advance look at the camouflaged pre-production car, and I have to say: the new M3 will be even more aggressive and wider. I like that! The rear wheel arches, which I already love so much on my M3, are even more distinctive. Who knows, maybe the G80 is the perfect successor for my M3?
You drove a BMW X5 before you got your M3. How did the first drive in the M3 feel?
I picked the M3 up at BMW Welt in Munich and had a long first drive home. After only a few metres I could feel that the M3 would be a different proposition in terms of driving dynamics. Of course, I still had to break it in, but the feeling that it had all the qualities of a perfect sports car was immediately apparent.
