Great vid, there it is clear as day, M340xi is faster and the better handling car with better steering. C43 sounds better and that's where it ends. Would have liked a track comparison though instead of a drag race.

M340 vs C43 Video

FF to 8:33. They do 3 runs, the "clean run" M340 still smokes C43

I'll take the C43 any day over the 340i.. when all of us go to inevitably sell these things the 340i will hardly be worth $10k in a couple years where as the C43 will still command $20k+

I just traded in a nearly 6 year old 335i with 55k for 17.5 and I could've done better

Just wait for the M Performance Exhaust. Bmw will sound as good or better

The C43 LCI is so far ahead that it's not even funny. You can't even mention the F30 in the same breath as this C43 lol.

Great video!! With the m performance package and mppsk it will sound better then the c63 hands down. Plus it's faster 😈 but I still like the look of my 2018 f30 340i better then the g20!

LOL a current BMW sounding better than a C63!?!?! Dream on!

You're in very lonely company if you think the terrible F30 looks better than the G20

That bump in the road was sketchy! Can't believe they ran the same stretch of road again knowing they'd be hitting that thing at like 100MPH. With that said, not bad for the 340i at all but wish they had a track test and real 1/4 mile drag from a dig.

Track time is not that meaningful for most of us I imagine, what's more fun on the street matters

Badge dilution is also happening with Merc too. Technically it's the AMG C43. Blame Audi for having the best naming scheme in their line up and everyone is trying to play catch-up for more sales

Doesn't look like the C43 is ahead.

You're in very lonely company if you think the terrible F30 looks better than the G20
It's all a matter of opinion. I personally don't like the sound of c63 what so ever nor do I like the look of them. I also don't like the g20 look at all. I think it Looks like a Lexus not a bmw. Again, my opinion. Don't need to say I must be in lonely company that's rude. Pretty sure these forums are for discussion not for hating on and be littling people.
