    • No, that's not how it works

      ChrisChris2 dögum síðan
  • But of an Audi Bias on my part, but I would say James doesn’t know how to really drive that s4, just gotta get better timing and that s4 has no problem keeping up with the Beamer, just gotta be able to compensate for the turbo lag

  • That BMW has 382 hp on the wheel, bmw always put down the actual hp on the paper

    Jamie QinJamie Qin3 dögum síðan
  • That 340 must have more crank hp than a E9x M3, please please do a drag race w it against one! (preferably a E90 sedan DCT)

  • I see BMW’s tradition of underrating the hell out of their turbo 6s that started w the N54 is still being well kept lol

  • James you should race an older 3.0T Audi s4 , I heard that they are a little bit quicker than the new B9. It would be an interesting race new vs old.

    • @Nikolas Mukwevho that's not how it works 😂 it's not BMWs problem that Audi underpower the S4. They're direct competitors. The RS4 competes with the M3, not the M340i.

      ChrisChris9 dögum síðan
    • @Chris 245kw and 285Kw can't be compared.. Some VW Polos don't have that 40Kw

    • @Nikolas Mukwevho s4 is the equal competition to M340i S4=M340i=C43 RS4=M3=C63.

  • One thing to consider is that the S4 is likely heavier than the others due to the Quattro AWD. I didn’t see if the other cars were equipped in their AWD options. I bet the BMW still wins, just by a slightly lower margin.

  • Wanted: Daily driver, year around, good enough to get to a ski hill in winter and rip long drives all summer. S5 Sportback: lift back convenience and cool shape, least performance of these 3 Or C43 wagon: it's a wagon, no laser lights, last year of this gen and think it's getting a 4 cylinder next gen Or M340i: it's the fastest, but least convenient shape, has that weird tachometer Going to nearly max one of these out in 2021 Any thoughts?

  • Hi guys, I want to purchase an entry level sport sedan and I want some comfort for my passengers. So I want to know if the c43 can get heated rear seats? Because I know the m340i does have that option! Thank you and keep up with the very good work

  • M340i is a beast🔥

  • To me at least I thought the BMW also looked better on the outside and that interior spec made the other two look very...professional, if somewhat a bit tight in the collar.

  • Add a $700 tune to the s4 and its no competition. Considering the other 2 are more expensive.. s4 is the easy choice. Best interior, best awd system, and its the most reliable of the 3 (most unreliable brands). Lol

  • And that just shows what the M340i can do to them in a straight line. Now go hit some turns and really watch the Bmw shine. Audi is far too nose heavy and will forever understeer due to that engine being positioned so far in front of the shock towers.
