Good photos of these cars change the game, and seriously.....those carbon buckets are phenomenal. Works of art! I like the new roof design too. The M4 has a GTR-esque side profile.

Even X3MC does 3.5 0-60. G80 Comp AWD should be around 3.2.

Torque figures for the competition seem strange more torque than the S58 in the X3MC yet starts later and ends sooner but headline power is the same? A narrower peak torque band doesn't seem right.

2016 BMW M3  [5.00]
This def feels like a car I need to see in person. This angle looks really really good to me partly because it shows how the grilles dives into the lip, which I like. Many of the shots make the front look too flat. Clear to me that it is not at all photogenic but if you catch it at the right angle it can look good.

What's with the 0-60 time that matches the F80??

Torque on MT is 73lb-ft down on AT! I would not consider the MT for this reason alone!

I'll spare my comments on looks, but the torque figure on the competition is very impressive 😯

So as expected the press kit for BMW UK only lists the M3/M4 Competition variants, so no 6MT for the UK market

Not feeling the M-Performance parts, I think they are a little too over the top, almost boy racer/JDM.

The m performance exhaust is some next level boy racer stuff..... I don't know what were they thinking, what happened to the carbon fiber tips on the F8x?
