    I miss my 2008 e90 m3. such a car with rawness and soul, but it was a maintenance nightmare.

    Unfortunately due to BMW’s new designs , I’ve left the brand after owning a couple of M3’s and a couple of M5’s over 20 yrs . Even there flagship 2021 7 series has gone way off the charts. Now owning a Porsche I’ve not look back. But the M3 still a special place for me. Great video guys.

    New M3 is fugly. The handling looks sloppy. Shocks look off and allowing corner to corner yawing. I have a E92 M3 and F80 M3. Both of those cars are fun and look good. The chinese inspired grill is horrible.

    "Throttle response" was not said or not said enough that I noticed. Haven't driven the G80 yet but the F80 is atrocious compared to the E9x. I held off upgrading to see if the g80 was better. Doesn't sound like it but I'll have to check myself.

    BMW are the masters at making their older M cars look much more appealing by releasing the hideous, overly priced, non-emotional new models. I was never a fan of the E92 M3 when it came out, now I like them so much more.

    I'd like to see a sport sedan shoot out. Do it in price brackets that real people can actually buy. Start with the Mainstream brands-Chevrolet, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Nissan, Kia, Hyundai, Mazda and Honda(Under $55,000) Then the next play off bracket would be the near luxury group-Cadillac, Lincoln, Lexus, Acura, Infinity, and Genesis (Under $75,000) and the final bracket would be the luxury group- Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Alfa,Porsche, and Jaguar,-(under $125,000) Take the winner of each bracket and then play them off against each other. To show if the extra money is worth the performance practicality value quotient. You could do this with SUV's too but cars are more fun.

    E9x aged very well, I still cannot get down with new new BMW fucking beaver teeth grills and I do not think it'll grow onto me because it would have by now. It's like having a face of a crazy alien and the body of a fat human man that works out a little bit. Though I do not dislike the side profile of the new car and it's great that BMW is continuing to provide manuals.

    You gotta drive both to really understand, I have, and both are great, just in different ways. Nothing like a N.A. V8, but the new TT I-6 has just SO MUCH low-end power, it feels like you have a cocked, loaded weapon 100% of the time. It’s awesome as well.

    S65 S85, it is the sound you hear from behind the steering wheel. The turbo six pot just growls, it can't sing. The saving grace is that when you are driving it you can't see the grill. Manual, manual, manual. Jeeze! SMG is faster, DCT is faster, Auto has creep and is smoother. I loved the manual in my e39 but even I realise how old they are now. SMG and DCT suit the low torque high revving engine
