    Seats are good, interior is on a par with the e46 M3, few nice bits like carbon leather dash.

    Ride is pretty hard, but I live in the middle of nowhere so the roads aren't great. Motorway and cruising no problem.

    I find that M3's age fairly quick, whereas with an unusual shape like this it still looks modern even 10 years later.

    I'll be reviewing the fleet in Spring, can't really justify keeping 4 cars (well I can, but it isn't very practical!)...

    How does the N420 differ from the standard? The standard is great as it is.

    They basically added every 'sports' option from the factory:

    Sports suspension and anti-roll bars
    Lighter forged wheels
    Sports exhaust
    Lots of carbon bits

    It's the best spec you can get if you want a manual gearbox
