BMW M3 Touring vs M340i: DRAG RACE
On the lookout for your next car? Head to to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
It's time for a BMW Touring showdown! We've got an F81 M3 Touring going head-to-head with the new BMW M340i xDrive Touring!
Now we know what you BMW fanboys will be saying - BMW never made an F81 M3 Touring. And you're right, they didn't... So what you're seeing here is a custom-built, one-of-a-kind exclusive. The owner took a BMW 320d, and then took all the parts from an M3 F80 and built THIS! Not only that, but the engine's also been tuned, so the 3-litre straight-six turbo now delivers 540hp & 680Nm!
Now it may have more power than the M340i, which can 'only' produce 374hp & 500Nm of torque, but it does have one advantage - it's got all-wheel drive, whereas the M3 only has rear-wheel drive! Will it be enough to power the 'M3 Lite' to victory? You'll have to keep watching to find out!

      $52K for the unicorn is assuming you diy and have the expertise to do it well and without warranty. amazing that the M340i stopped in a shorter distance with inferior brakes, maybe the aftermarket job wasn't done right.

    What are the differences between these engines? Just an extra turbo and tune?

    So basically, your friend wasted so much money transferring all of the parts from an m3, into a car that he could have just bought as an m3 and most likely saved a lot of money...? Then again, coming from someone who would just hi and m3, and know that they're probably all the parts that need to be in this car, from the manufacturer. Yeah, makes no sense.

    I wonder how he gets insurance on that M3 touring ... "Yep it's an M3, 5dr estate"..... How would the insurance company find it on their database? Lol

    You really need to set suspension to comfort so the car can squat. Makes a huge difference, especially on the rwd M cars like the F10 M5.

    I'm surprised at the numbers. My 2016 650i xdrive gran coupe is stage 2 tuned with 565 hp and 600 lb ft of torque and does 0-60 in 3.8 and the 1/4 mile in 11.5 @115mph. It also weighs 4600 lbs

    Please do add a NON-launch-control drag race to each video. In day-to-day driving, launch control is an irrelevant number and a useless feature. It's a misleading marketing gimmick that masks the real-world experience available in normal driving.

    The M3 is a beautiful car. I think it goes without saying the result would be different I'd the M340i was stage 2 also.

    Bit annoying you keep changing camera angles, yes it makes it more dramatic and lengthens the video but doesnt give an accurate picture of the race. Other than that, cool car selection and enjoyable to watch 👍
