Sorry OT

Chris Harris driving his old GT3 RS 4.0 in the cold UK winter is still my favourite video. The car is so visceral, so full of life, so basic in its delivery of power and effort. My apologies on the messy link

I bet anything by december 15th we see a ton of actual reviews.
At least these guys know who to invite...


This is what is missing from the BMW marketing campaign. The history of the car, how the new car is different/improved but still linked to the tradition of earlier cars. Porsche nails this, BMW has completely lost it. That is what separates enthusiasts from people who view their cars as appliances or a way to reinforce their "image".

Absolutely, it wouldn’t interfere with the social media attempts to sow the seeds in younger aspirational segments. There is more than enough room for both to coexist. Hopefully it’s just a matter of a few weeks until this is corrected.

That’s the thing, BMW seem very clear they want to break that link with history on this car.

You guessed right. I have a 992 turbo on order for summer 2021 delivery. I figured if I make the move, might as well make it worth it .
yessir! performance on another level .. congrats and looking forward to hearing your review! I am tossing around G80, C8 Z06 and various 992s ... no wrong choices.

I don't think anyone hates her, the hate is on BMW lol! She's good at what she does, get attention and influence though social media, she's a automotive social media star not a journalist. Most of the reviews at this point have been social media icons, not journalists. Social media whilst it's good it dilutes the real automotive journalist. I'm looking forward to a Tiff or Chris review in the near future (Chris Harris initial review on the exterior was slightly harsh and hilarious).
