the problem of understeer? It doesn't on my M5--it allows it to get worse.

I cannot remember reading about understeer in the M5 in any magazine, yet it's there bigtime! I changed the suspension in order to reduce it, but I was supprised that it had so much understeer from the factory. So, BMW must have designed it into the M5, why not the new M3 also?

I received my C/D magazine yesterday and had to turn right to the cover story: The 2001 M3. The article was very short and to the point. They absolutly love the engine (claiming it's only 1 of 3 engines that can produce that much Horspower per liter; the other 2 are the Honda S2000 and some Ferrarri). They said that the power band is smooth from the lower range all the way til red line. The car it's self, however, they claim suffers from a massive case of understeer. They said that this is a complete shock that wasn't present in the last generation M3's. I realize that you cannon purchase a car based soley on what you read, but in the case where we are all on 18 month waiting lists to get one, we must trust what we read!
