Any of the current -40i BMW models are fantastic cars if you want a relatively "affordable" (meaning if you cannot splurge on a V12) super smooth luxury car. The BMW straight 6 is a gem, better than...

Porsche are and always has been very expensive, no value for the money there that is for sure.

On the other side, I think that the G30 530i is "overpriced" as well considering that you can get an...

In my case, having different type cars on my wish list doesn't mean I compare them.

Yep!!



We tried any combination...as I said, sometimes the 428i would get a nice "jump" for few yards but then the G37 would pull ahead.

If in the real world the 328i (or 428i) can consistently pull mid 5, a G37 coupe must be a sub 5 car then (C&D tested them in the low 5) because when with my friends we played with them (G37 coupe...

The link you provided is the test of a 228i xDrive, a little bit lighter than a 328i (or a 428i) and it still clocks at 5.0, not below 5.

All I was saying is that the low 5 for a 328i (stock) is fairly unrealistic.
I do not do traffic lights street racing either.

I agree on the modern turbo engines, the low end torque is very...

5.2 was an outlier done in Launch Control by C&D and the car was probably an overboosted ringer sent by BMW

328i are not that fast in real life....high 5 at the very best.

M340i tested by C&D...0-60 3.8..realistic??

I'm frankly baffled.

C&D tested the new RWD M340i and it hit 60 in 3.8 sec and covered the quarter in 12.3 at 114 mph.

The car has a curb weight of 3813 pounds

These are figures in 2016 M4...
