Great comparison and outcome as expected based on what I’ve seen from these cars. I liked that they did a roll race too so we could see how that compared since I feel like the M340 feels like it falls on its face a little from a roll.

I agree. The M340i is a beast and this video just proved it. What surprised me more though was how close it is between the S4 and C43! They did multiple runs and all had the same results. I expected the C43 to be a nose behind the M340i. Not car lengths behind and definitely not neck and neck with the S4.

I'm most surprised by the C43. I thought it would do better than it did. My predictions going in were that the M340i and C43 would be neck and neck and the S4 would be left in the dust. Who'd have thought it was the C43 and S4 that were neck and neck.

This was a members car from this forum right? I remember a few weeks ago they were trying to set it up. I’m surprised it was done so quickly.

Of course I watched like 1000 reviews M340 is the beast in it's class.
Also M340 is the only one with the newest design as it is late 2019 model while others are older models. So I don't see a point picking up a different than m340

Don't know if anyone has mentioned, it would be a nice to compare the m340i drag race against the Genesis G70: 3.3T Sport AWD, Kia Stinger, and Inifinti Q50 Red Sport I-LINE ProACTIVE AWD

I have a Q50 Red Sport now and waiting for my 21 M340. so I have ran against the c43 amg in my Q50 RS and I was just pulled on him from the start and on he was at least 1 car behind me. So m340 was not a surprise to be ahead of these 3 cars.

Not surprised by the M340's impressive showing, was easily expected. BMW is a master of underrating their power figures.

Not at all surprising. Without my tune, I'd get pulled on by some of these M340s out there in the wild. Brilliant car for BMW!

Might be blasphemous to the forum but I would prob do the same. I loved that car since it's release. Audi "Audid" themselves on that model.

Many places in Europe denote the model year with the year it was produced, so in the UK for instance, there are 2019 M340i's.

Hahaha true, but I also think most of us are "automotive" fans in general. I don't have brand loyalty at all. Obviously if something comes out that I'm LUSTING over and it happens to be from a brand that I like, even better! I could just as easily move back to BMW or to MB, or whoever.
