We start off the show talking about why one of us broke down and bought an A3. How does the A3 compare to the new 4 door GTI and MINI Countryman we just drove? We break it down in detail.

From there we talk about Michael ‘s drive in the X3 28i and how it ‘s likely going to be a success for BMW. But the X3 is important in more ways than one. For us enthusiasts it gives us a glimpse at the next 3 Series since they will both share electronics and a chassis (to some extant).

Michael gives us the inside scoop on the HPFP issue straight from the sources. If you want to know what (exactly) will happy if the HPFP fails, you ‘ll want to listen. We also coin the term “the happy pump ” which of course is the one you want in your N54 equipped BMW.

What about the 1M? We talk about EVO ‘s recent drive of the car and the new details we ‘ve heard. Once you get past the power it ‘s sounds just about pitch perfect to us.

Finally we ‘d like to thank our listeners for all the positive reviews on iTunes. We ‘ve increased sounds quality and we believe we ‘ve increased the quality of the show at the some time based on your suggestions.
