Krys, that's actually pretty good graphics compared to mine. I play with the apsolute minimum graphic level without shadows and everything. Frames are for the game play much more important than high detail level etc. Select the Bilstein Suspension and you'll improve :)

And good luck Chulk for your exam today!

After the first 15 laps of continues lap records, I stopped when I couldn't improve previous lap's (#15) time. 2:22.XXX.

I'll try again tomorrow morning.

Do you use keyboard or force-feedback steering wheel for this game?

I didn't raced again, but for info I played it with analog gamepad, handling is much better than keyboard.
Too bad I don't have a force-feedback driving wheel...

Woohooo I did 2:15 time!!

I recommend TC level 1, Bilstein suspension, ABS on. But it's hard like hell to go under 2:15 with keyboard. I visited the M3 challenge forum. There are also lots of freaks with momo racing wheels, even installed racing seat, big screens, dolby surround etc... Nothing for "normal people" like us, but some of them manage to do 2:10 laps!!! Of course, with the wheel and the equipment you can improve about 2-3 seconds, but there's still place to improve for us (2:13lap with keyboard maybe...)

Here a crappy video of my hotlap :)

You use the outside part of the track, is that valid? I thought the game penalized...

Using the outside part on 2nd corner only, I did 2:18.553.
I'll try Krys T?ff's advice and race with a simil PS keypad. Maybe that can help.

Agressive driving, but it obviously proves that a better time can be done due to some little mistakes we can see on this replay.

One info : personnally I drive with driver view, not outside view.
