No wonder these louts complain when their boot floors crack and their vanos rattles...

I'm not sure what point is being made here. Surely he boot floor problems and the vanos problems are the fault of poor design by BMW and not that you should never accelerate hard in a Z3M. I have never had an M but I cant really see the point of owning one if you never put your foot down hard to experience the performance. I can see an argument for not doing it in a street like in the video, but that isnt the point being made (personally, Id be more worried about my clutch).

I agree with you John, had he changed the clutch pipe he would have pulled away a lot better.
