  • Can you guys do an old vs new Mazda 3 speed/turbo video?

  • While I do enjoy a good old drag race, would like to see track times with same driver in each car. For this type of vehicle, to me, that makes more sense as a comparison.

  • $90K ? I can get a Godzilla with that price and still smack the M3 over and over again ..

  • You gotta drive both to really understand, I have, and both are great, just in different ways. Nothing like a N.A. V8, but the new TT I-6 has just SO MUCH low-end power, it feels like you have a cocked, loaded weapon 100% of the time. It’s awesome as well.

  • The old M3 is a true BMW. You can tell it by the check engine light on.

  • This is ridiculous that price?5 ttHave a Tesla and the car is fast as hell. For almost half the price, no gas, no check engine light. It’s not for everyone but I made the switch from bmw and never going back. Porsche was smart and put out the taycan ASAP to stop the bleeding

  • S65 S85, it is the sound you hear from behind the steering wheel. The turbo six pot just growls, it can't sing. The saving grace is that when you are driving it you can't see the grill. Manual, manual, manual. Jeeze! SMG is faster, DCT is faster, Auto has creep and is smoother. I loved the manual in my e39 but even I realise how old they are now. SMG and DCT suit the low torque high revving engine

  • he was talking about what makes an true M car and then mentioned the fenders and mirrors. but as a fan boy i would mention that a "true" M car would be one that is naturally aspirated. from the f80 and on they are just fast cars with an M badge. I still like them a lot but.......

  • Awesome video guys! Such a good comparison that really works. Also glad to see the e9x M3 performing so well against the latest M3 in the fun department, it definitely does get the love it deserves amongst other M cars. Love my e92 M3 it’s such a special car!
