TG drives the BMW M3 Ute
Present M3 Ute to an Aussie. Wait for swearing to stop. Send him on a top-speed run. Job done.

I'm reminded about the amputee state of the rear end when, coming into a tight hairpin, I give it a poke and find the tail coming wildly loose. Not the gradual drift a regular M3 would deliver and help you control, but a genuinely slippery whip at the back, that has my stomach lurching like I've stepped into the elevator shaft to find the lift's not there. This car is the only one of its kind in the world, and I desperately do not want to have to call the BMW press office and tell them which tree they can find it in.
But I must test. It's in the job spec. I need to find out if you can hoon an M3 Ute. Which means driving fast. I'm in Germany. The unrestricted autobahn beckons.
