Great review. I like that they mentioned the HK sound system at the end; no one else seems to care!

Very good honest review. There really aren’t many negatives from many reviews I’ve watched.

Okay dumb question - what color is that? I heard them mention how much they liked it but I didn't catch the call out. I really like this spec

That Oxide really is a fantastic color. I'd have to go with a different interior as I find the black really boring but otherwise I like the spec of that car. The more reviews I watch the more accolades I see being given. Very impressive.

Another practical data point why G80 M3 is a step forward for stated reasons.

Well it's a 5 series vs a 3... are you surprised?

Appreciate the perspective coming from an aftermarket team that need to develop G8x products despite personal preference

To my mind, the most important takeaway is that it's more like a M2 than an M5.

That's the biggest fear I've had - that it's turned into a smaller, slower, M5.

Based on this, Motoman, and Throttle House, I feel pretty confident that this still has the sporty, agile sedan feeling.

Excellent in depth video here on the M3 driving dynamics, chassis strength and the overall product offering. This really does seem like the best of both worlds and the most perfect M3 yet. Ride quality of the M5, usability and compactness of the M3 and sharp agility / nimbleness of the M2 all for $80k. To me this care is worth every penny!

Good review, these guys have many M cars so appreciate hearing their viewpoint. Goes to show the G80 is a return to form and a huge improvement over the F80 in almost every aspect.

I have not tried the G80 M3 before but I do have a 2020 F90 Comp and the car is not really comfortable. I wonder how bad the G80 M3 is......

The review is positive, but the post is titled living with the G80. 1500 miles isn't much to live with a car...
