At the 2011 New York Auto Show, the newly appointed BMWNA M Brand Manager, Matt Russell, spent some time with BMWBLOG to discuss about the M brand; what’s in store for the enthusiasts, limited edition M3s, GTS Sedan and other pressing matters that cater to the vast and enthusiastic BMW community.

Without any further ado, here is the first part of the interview conducted by Christiaan Conover of RoundelTable.
