Well the s2000 already beat those two in real world comparos from all the major publications, so if this turns out any different it would just prove Top Gear is full of it, like they were with the M3 vs S4 comparo their jackass main host did where he was full of lies and misinformation.

Can't wait for the d/l to finish... I love watching the M3 in action.

That's not what I was getting at.

And damn that CSL is hawt.

I like the Z4... got rid of the clownshoe look of the Z3. The s2000 is just the best bang-for-the-buck roadster out there.


edit - bahahaha the roof lowering race was the best.

ahahaha his American accent immitation was awesome too.

Great video!
I want BBC, too. All I get is BBC America which is rubbish.
At least BBC's Radio 1 does a webcast

Funny video and those three cracked me up. It looked to me like the S2000 might have lost precious tenths at the end (like it was sliding a little. Either way the cars were so close I would say that anyone can win in every run of that course.

Love the M3!

Did she say that the Euro EVO 8 have a 6 speed?? The gear box is the only thing what would make me pick the Sti over the EVO, but in this case, I would take the Euro Evo.
