I made a few mistakes on this show. A few of you have correctly said that the torque figure for the M3 should be 295 ft-lb not 225. Also, for the 0-60 for the M3 is only 4.4 seconds with the DCT, I have the manual transmission so should be 4.8 seconds. Sorry about this.

Booktime for manual is 4.8. 4.6 for auto and 4.4 for auto xdrive

Was that a manual m140i?
samsara (1 год назад)
and the book time for the m140i manual, 0-60, is 4.6 not 4.8

Why pick 3 cars like this, then do an economy test?? Who cares about that outcome. Pointless.....
Delta BoXeR (3 месяца назад)
Whats funny about the m3 is even though I have owned one and this is likely to piss other owners off... It's just not that fast. I really hoped it would be but after decat's tuning box and other things it just didnt feel that quick. It even got beaten by a stock 360bhp Evo. They really are sluggish engines with little torque despite being a big v8. Apart from the sound, the E92 m3 was a let down for me. I now own 2014 m235i and with a jb4 tuning box and it's without a doubt faster than an e92 m3 with a tune and a decat! That shouldn't be the case but sadly It is!

Would you say a car with 210 bhp and 1385 kg auto gearbox is not very slow and enough for daily driving?
Eck (8 месяцев назад)
I'm thinking of the M3 and the RS (also an Evo X) as my car buy this year. The thing that's bugging me about the M3 is the costs to maintain and run it. The MPG is really low.
Eck (8 месяцев назад)
Road and Race I don't have a clue about car mechanics so maintenance would be likely 100% out of pocket. Ive seen a few RS'es for about 24k with about 11k miles on them. So about the same as I've seen the M3 go for but with more mileage.
Road and Race (8 месяцев назад)
The E92 M3 will be roughly £10,000 cheaper to buy but will cost more in fuel and to maintain. Really depends on if you can do the work yourself and how many miles you do.

There is no way your RS is quicker than an M140i. Absolute rubbish.

You make a fool of yourself by speaking before you think... then tell someone to "come back more polite".... what a numpty
Latvietis96 (10 месяцев назад)
Skytalker777 Read some magazine reviews and track tests then. M140i is faster on a straight and on track. Btw the M140i is available with AWD too which greatly improves acceleration speeds.
Skytalker777 (10 месяцев назад)
On paper yes but in reality is not...go test them. After you tested them come back more polite. Even in this video the 140i got beaten. 5.1 vs 5.0 the RS.

I own an m140i auto and I have driven an m140i manual back to back with mine and the auto is faster and better everywhere and the launch control is crazy reliable 4.3-4.1 0-60 every time
Limpet 7R (1 год назад)
I have an auto as well and agree with your comments. It's skewed even more by BMW being unable to do manual gearboxes properly.The current 6 speed unit is more of the same notchy, agricultural feeling, clutch-delay-valved crap they've been peddling for years. The ZF8 by contrast is one of the finest automatic transmissions to ever be fitted to a production car. I do miss the interaction of a manual, but BMW manuals are terrible.

ViB33 (1 год назад)
3 awesome cars! I was acutally crossshopping exactly those 3. I decided for the M140i and upgraded it with ST XA coilovers and a new exhaust. Maybe JB4 in the future. Since I use it as a daily this seemed to be the best choice for me. For a weekend car the other 2 would have been my choice, especially the M3 E92.
Marcel B. (1 год назад)
Good choice :-)... most important upgrade though is the replacement of the suspension! That's a hell of a difference and makes the car much more responsive.
Road and Race (1 год назад)
+ViB33 The M140i certainly is one hell of a car. How to the coilovers compare to factory?
Ben Hayes (1 год назад)
Great episode. Too short! Brings it alive having your mates and their cars on there. You should do a long trip across Europe or something ;) I thought your comment about the Boxster feeling much lower and more stable at 60mph than the M3 was interesting. That's the kind of observation you don't always get in car mag reviews. I often think it's those more subjective observations that are more interesting than bare facts and speed tests etc. After all, enjoyable driving is about how you feel more than anything else, in my view.
Road and Race (1 год назад)
+Ben Hayes Thanks for saying so Ben! Was a hard choice to decide to split the video into two but the second part is out 6pm BST on Friday! Would love to do a Euro trip. Still have a day job so makes it more challenging but not impossible!
Fred Garvin (1 год назад)
The M3 has shit for torque. It needs a lot of revs off the line to get anywhere near that 0-60 time of 4.4. And a fuel economy test? Ridiculous.

BigSerbiaForce No he's actually correct it is a Manual m140i , 15:00 mark you can see no paddles on the wheel. Therefore it wouldn't have had Launch control. The Auto Zf 140i is a much faster thing altogether.

Tom Scott (1 год назад)
Think you've done a disservice to yourself with the estimate of 4.4 - 60 in the M3. The DCT is 4.4 the manual is 4.8 AT BEST! Perfect conditions with sticky tyres and they are notorious for being difficult to get off the line and getting a good time. Chris Harris did a review VS the GTR back in the day and was so disappointed he sold it. Give it a google. One of the reasons I wasn't that keen on mine, wasn't much fun as a daily because it had no torque, great fun when hitting the revs high up but your destroying the speed limit in 2nd at 8k. Should look at a Z4M they are so much more fun the S54 is a lovely engine. Really enjoyed the video tho! Great production love the channel. Keep it up!
Road and Race (1 год назад)

Road and Race Great work! Wonder how my GTI Clubsport (with R engine workarounds) would do. its a DSG but on paper it do 0-60 on 5.9. However on a Stage 1 tune a Golf R does 0-60 in 3.7 seconds.. ;) This being slightly downtuned ithink id retain something around 4. Do these cars have 4WD by the way? Check videos on my 2017 GTI Clubsport in 4K at my channel if you like! :)

It definitely shows, unfortunately, the economics of online video usually doesn't allow this amount of editing to be feasible, but it's just really top notch presentation, edited with good flow, but still with relatable banter between statistical-type segments. Hopefully you can take some ideas you used here and find a way to fast-track similar editing techniques for the future.

BOBBY D fair enough if your car is still in warranty, I didn't know BMW would allow a stage 3 and still keep the cars warranty. My E90 isn't an X drive it's a rear wheel drive. It also has very little drive-train loss. It doesn't have a LSD, I would love one as I can't get the power down due to the huge amount of torque. Has for pink-slip keep dreaming lmao.
BOBBY D (1 год назад)
Thats where you and I differ. Those Jb4 kits , void the warranty and are subject to problems that the Dinan upgrades don't get. Who buys a luxury sports car and does cheap mods ? The nitrous kit , will blow up that JB4 , but not the Dinan. You are overlooking the fact that , with all your bhp and torque , your x is driving 4 wheels not 1 . With the LSD stabilizing the rear end , straight lines or in curves makes no difference. Add a little aviation fuel to the tank, brother , your pink slip is mine! ha ha!
Brian Smith (1 год назад)
I can assure you it's not slower than your car lol, how can it be it has the same bhp. Who even gets a Dinan remap these days with such conservative gains, get a JB4 or a local well known professional remapper. I would ask for my $$$ money back lol😉. You need to earn my pink-slip, it will never happen lol.

Yes , slower than an all Dinan 3 , Catless downpipes, & Nitrous Express! I want your pink slip.
