BMW sponsored a track day, where potential M3 buyers were all given a chance to drive flat out on an enclosed track at the Autobahn Country Club, in Joliet, IL, to get a feel for how the cars perform. It was a lead follow event, with instructors driving X5Ms and X6Ms, and regular folks following in M3s. When asked about how strange it was having SUV's leading, the pro drivers said, these M3's, no matter how good of a driver you are, will not be able to pass the X5Ms and X6Ms on this track.

Were these e30 m3's on a track with a lot of straights? The X5M is a pig compared to most any M3 and I would think the e46 or e90 wouldn't have a problem out doing it on a track in the corners.

I used to have an m6 and on the straights, nothing could touch it, but it wouldn't turn like a smaller lighter car.

X6M fastest SAV from BMW. Next inline is the Xdrive 40d. I didn't see the X5M on here.

Cheers,
