Why I'm getting a new BMW M4 or M3 - engine redline rev test + 'review'
On the lookout for your next car? Head to www.carwow.co.uk to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
It’s the one you bimmer boys & girls have been waiting for… ALL-NEW BMW M3 & M4!
First things first, we need to address the elephant in the room - the absolutely huge vertical grille! Yes, we know it’s not to everyone's taste, but you can’t deny that the rest of the updates to both the exterior and interior make up for it, right?!
Still not convinced? Well even if the looks aren’t to your liking, we know one thing that will be… the specs! Both cars are powered by a 3-litre straight-six, and with the competition pack included they’ll produce 510hp, 650Nm (100Nm MORE than the previous generation) and will hit 60mph in less than 4 seconds!
So what do you think - can you still be mad at BMW with performance stats like that, right?! All we know is, you’ll have to stick with Mat and find out!

    If you think BMW should give Mat an M3 please LIKE this comment. If you'd prefer they gave him an M4 just comment M4! We will pass the results on to BMW. With enough engagement we'll hopefully secure one of them for this channel! People power FTW!

    OK, no more tooting noises from the exhaust. I'm onboard again. Especially after seeing the grill with a modified front bumper. AND they finally figured out how to keep the top from having all the creases in it! Thank you 911 for that inspiration.

    That pig nose grill needs colour coding to just above the number plate and leave the rest black, then it will look better.

    I'm really surprised he likes a BMW because he doesn't and I definitely didn't expect him to like the M3. Really really surprising. Give him a daily !!!

    You should get the M4. Because it has 4 doors and that is sportier. Get the carbon pack, bucket seats and the carbon ceramics. Please get the alloy wheels on the M3. But brushed

    Biggest mistake BMW has made so far. Not all classic grilles are worth bringing back.

    Are getting them because you love most unreliable shitty brand (per your own summary of the least reliable cars) ?

    I can live with it. I can! It’s better in a plain colour and I can get a manual. That’s already hugely important for me! Otherwise, a German guy already has a bodykit which will help it. Which I would definitely choose!! The lungs are not killing it for me, but I would change them given the option…

    Bummer the two door isn’t the better looking one. The rear quarter is too tall like a w204 c class. Makes its rear wheels look tiny. Those fake Gilles even if real look like ass tho Also shame it’s not a big v8

    Oh no...the BMW-grille just keeps growing like at double wart on the nose... Ooh...wait. Get on the interweb and look up the 3-series from the late 1930's and 5-series in the 1950's - the huuuuge nostrils isn't a new thing. But in the present times of minimalist design trends, that massive snout certainly is a kick straight to your most sensitive aestethic area. But hey, don't buy one in green if you play Angry Birds - you'll never be able to unsee the resemblance between the piggy antagonists and your new Beemer. Give Mat an M3 in green - with a horn that says "oink".
