Dang. So quick, great dynamics. You can gripe about the aesthetics but it's an awesome package, and if this thing dropped out of the sky 10 years ago we would all be losing our minds at the performance. Great middle child between the four banger and full tilt M cars.

It did, it was called the 335i. It came out a little over 10 years ago and everyone did lose their minds on the performance... 2007 335i Road Test

In that same year, the replaced top trim, 330i with its NA 3.0L I6 went 0-60 in 5.6 seconds and ran the 1/4 mile in 14.4 at 98mph. The 335i presented a huge leap to 4.8 seconds to 60, and 13.5 seconds at 106mph in the 1/4 mile.

Stein, this car has been tested *a full second* quicker.

The point is that it's been very easily dismissed (almost universally on this site) due to the aesthetics, but it's a stellar performer.

We all know its a good performer, the M340i has been out for almost two years, that point has already been made.

My point was more towards your comment about a car like this being released 10-years ago, saying we would have lost our minds, my response was that indeed a car did come out like this ten years ago and we did all lose our minds, the original 335i. 4.8 seconds to 60 in 2006 was a huge deal, just like sub 4-second cars are now. The M440i has impressive numbers, but this is nothing new, BMW has been putting out impressive numbers for years, case in point, the 335i. Even today, the numbers are still impressive and ahead of the current 3/4 30i.

I seen car and driver reviewed the M440i xdrive at 3.8 0-60 also. It'll be interesting to see the M3/4 competition and M3/4 competition xdrives performance specs.

Same! I just ordered a new car, and I noticed my old '09 335 coupe, space grey (best color ever) is still hanging out there.

Last year they put the N54 in the thing.

I saw it at the dealer yesterday. Great looking car. Now the grill - I stared at it. And stared at it. Looked at the M5 next to it with the "traditional" grill (whatever that means) and loved the M5 and .... could not decide if I liked this grill or not. The car was black so the grill didn't stand out as much but still... could not decide. But I'm not a buyer anyways so it's moot 🤣

Same here, I forgot it was there until I tracked the status of my incoming M5 and saw it on the bottom. (Apparently terminated leased cars get automatically removed but financed have to be removed manually).

Good memories with the E92 so it's staying on there!

The b58 matched with the zf8 has been out for a few years already. We all know that matchup makes for a great performer. Its not really anything new.

The whole 10 year example doesn't make sense when you can get the previous generation 440i for less, with better styling, and around the same capability when it comes to modifying.

Bmw isn't exactly giving us anything groundbreaking here.

I posted this as the first thing in the official stickied post.

stage 1 flash tuned S58s in X3M SUVs bone stock with ethanol are running 3.0s 0-60s and that car is hundreds of pounds more than the G8x.

I feel like when we get driving reviews, the performance will not be disappointing.

Isn't this the first M440i? The prior gen was just a 440i no?

Pretty sure this B58 is rated 382 horses from the factory, which is like 50 horses more mfg advertised for the prior year generation at 335.

I know 2020 supra and 2021 had this exact change and 2020 owners were not happy at all...

I agree with this not being groundbreaking, but I would still call this an improvement / evolution over the prior cars.

I disagree with this, some people have "grille derangement syndrome" and are borderline delusional and think this will be doing like 8 minute Nring runs...I posted a poll and I think two F80 owners voted that they think a g80 will be slower than a F80.

There is definitely bias and fwiw, I also hate the grille but there is no damn way BMW will make cars perform worse generation to generation

It might be more hp and torque, but bmw didn't have to fight hard to get there. Bootmod3 would get you those numbers and then some.
