Poirot moustache in the rear. Guess we’ll see that show up in other brands.
Same here.I feel like it's a better looking 3 series than the last two generations. The E46 is still king (and king of that segment all time, IMO) but the new one looks fine to me. The 4 series is an abomination however, and I still have a fresh and debilitating revulsion every time I see one, particularly in that god awful electric mucus color.
I can fit my current bike in the boot of my M235i with the front wheel removed if I put the seats down. But I prefer the narrative where I get a brand new M3 TouringPretty sure it would be close/impossible without removing the front wheel like in all modern touring versions.
Only available in M3 Comp xDrive form, no manual.The awesome new wagon version of the M3 is slightly heavier than the sedan but has the same twin-turbo inline-six and all-wheel drive with a drift mode.www.caranddriver.com
This is complete nonsense. The Porsche is the clear winner in every category except price and power-to-weight. It should have at least a 2 point advantage at the end.BMW M4 CSL vs. Porsche 992 GT3 (non-RS) from german Sport Auto. Seems the points scheme saves the CSL in the end. Getting only 1 point more beeing close to 3 seconds faster in Hockenheim or beeing close to 3 KM/H faster in the slalom while receiving the same 20 points just doesn't do justice for the GT3. The GT3 RS could be faster and receiving the same points soon when 25 are the maximum for laptime or 20 for the slalom. Sport Auto does calibrate their points scheme every few years to keep up with the better performance and just be able to differentiate it. Seems like it is time again for this calibration.
*little note. The same 992 GT3 presscar in this test was tested by Sport Auto in the spring of 2021 and already did a 1.45,8 on cooler temperatures in Hockenheim (10°C asphalt and 8°C air)

I don't agree with these ratings, I would say for the Porsche being nearly 3 seconds faster around Hockenheim than the M4 is enough for at least one more point.
Just business as usual for a German magazine, if BMW is losing a comparison they'll either give points that don't reflect the results or come up with an entirely new category that can be used. Years ago I used to read AutoBild and it was the same thing in every test - even against other German brands. If Audi and Mercedes were sweeping the floor with BMW in everything that was measurable, and it wasn't exactly a rare occurrence, some surprise such as "balance of the looks" was utilized with an up to 20% share of the final points, and BMW invariably got ten points while the others got four or five.This is complete nonsense. The Porsche is the clear winner in every category except price and power-to-weight. It should have at least a 2 point advantage at the end.
Because it's a limited edition car w/ only 1,000 units. The GT3 isn't, but the GT3 was also out of reach for "normal people" when it debuted; only VIPs & those willing to pay high ADMs would be willing to get on the initial allocation list dealers had.No one can buy a CSL since they were never available to order for normal people. Now slowly you can get the hands on a GT3 depending on your location since people switching to the GT3 RS which is the next one no normal person can get.
