I saw it yesterday. Very good show. They basically gave a rundown of the history of M cars beginning with the M1. Then they covered the M5, M6 and M Z4 coupe/roadster in detail. Not to be missed..............

I TiVo'ed it last week and watched it last night. They featured the M5, M6, M-Roadster, and M-Coupe, with a history of the ///M division. I felt like they gave no love to the E46 M3, which was really disappointing.

How can you say it was dissapointing? I thought it was very well put together. They focused on the NEW M's, the E46 M3 has been out for 5 years and has been test driven dozens of times by now.

Trust me this was an hour long commercial/sales pitch as much as it was a test drive.

Watching the M6 hit 196+- was more than worth not seeing the M3 IMO.

Well when they keep saying stuff about the ///M brand and the lineup it's kind of hard not to think of the current generation M3. Is the M3 not an ///M car?? I thought it was called "M test drive", not M5, M6, etc. test drive. And trust me, I know all about the sales pitch with the program, my TiVo was popping up with ads to order a brochure every 10 minutes. Actually the M6 hit 194, and I could really care less about that as I'm probably never going to go that fast.

Also, I never said the program was disappointing, I said the fact that the M3 wasn't included was disappointing.
