The Throttle house review was subjective, the C43 was picked for the exhaust sound and how the tyranny shifted as well as the looks. Even they had mentioned chances are the BMW might have been the better track car. The guy on track TV liked the same things the Throttle house duo liked about the C43. However, at the end of the day, the M340i is the faster car, the C43 sounds better, nobody is disputing that.

I will take the faster car, as far as exhaust note, that can be rectified with aftermarket exhaust. Stock M340i are already running 12 seconds in the 1/4 miles on run flats. The car is faster than what BMW publishes. Also the M340i is superior to the F30 variant so it's pointless using it as a viable metric.
