Garage List
Not feeling the exhaust, the seats however, I love the color combo's and looks, hopefully they aren't hard as a rock like most performance seats are.

Is it me or do they look way better here than they did in the leaked photos from earlier? Something looked odd about those photos to me

The green is an awesome color not gonna lie. I still think the kidneys are too big. Imagine if they were normal sized or like the m2c grills. The car would look so perfect. Yet, I do agree they look slightly better than the leaked images.

Yea i think the color difference threw me...looks a little more teal in this video compared to the photos. Im sure some people will like that more and some will like it less. Im honestly a pretty big fan of the front view somehow but the front 3/4 looks so awkward to me like it wasnt meant to be viewed from that angle 🤣 still a fan overall though i think this ruled out the c63 now im torn between c8 with a beater winter car and the m3 lol

Great video Joe. Loving the IoM Green. Shame about no U.K. manual but I can see why.

Can't wait to see it in the flesh.

It's something for everyone I don't like it but many will. The grill I really don't like but I can get over it but it looks like a regular car to me not something special, my opinion may change but I doubt it.

Those seats are cool but will be uncomfortable for daily use vs the normal M seats.

I love that green. I'm thinking M4, Isle of Man green, red calipers, those orange seats, CF trim

Competition is 0-60 in 3.8 and Normal M3 is 4.1, that's not to far off from the M340. Clearly faking something.

Seriously. So they drastically improved the new M340i performance wise and rumors are saying performance has barely improved with the M3/M4? Meanwhile the M5 jumped leaps and bounds in performance? Are they trying to keep these things sitting in the car lots??

Bmw is always very conservative on acceleration numbers when a new M3/M4 generation comes out.



Also keep in mind these figures are for RWD - The G80 AWD is going to much faster than that 0-60 (low 3's easily) and annihilate the M340 in the quarter mile - stock to stock.

On top of that - handling on a track will be leaps and bounds better than an M340i...
