Very high praise. That guy usually finds any excuse to pick the Alfa QV over BMW M products.

We all knew the AWD M X-drive version M3's would perform better. And all these nice video reviews prove that & much more!

Alfa? Re-badged Chrysler to me

G80/82 is simply awesome.

This car looks very nice. Love the dark, classy colors on the G80. The M3 is just too big and boat-like now to get away with the bright colors. Just my opinion, of course.

Isn't it the other way around? Chrysler is a rebadged Fiat!

Sao Paulo Yellow M3 is very beautiful if you see it in person.

I have to agree. I saw a SPY M4 the other day. While it is not a colour I would choose, it looked cool in the flesh.

Car looks awesome in that colour combo. I usually like Stef ABtv vids but did not find this one too informative.

Excellent review. G80 is a class leader, RWD or AWD. Choice is a wonderful thing.

Honestly, the xDrive is so fast in stock form that I can't imagine what a BM3 will do to it.

What is BM3?
BM3 stands for Boot Mod 3. It is a flash tune. And an inexpensive way to increase power on modern BMWs. I had a stage one on my previous F80 and it turned an already tail happy car into a tire shredding monster. All I did was put in some aftermarket spark plugs.

With the xDrive it will be a super car killer.
