Great 340i xdrive review

This review really shows off the xdrive system nobody stands a chance racing you in this and even can give the M3 a run for its money.

Against that road course with those switchbacks it could be faster than an M3

I love my 340! amazing car.

obviously the M3 is... the M3, but the 340 is still amazing. Esp. with the MPPSK.

The launch at 4:02 is insane

That looks far quicker than the figures would suggest. Wouldn't be the first time a BMW withing danger distance of the M3 was downplayed though!

Using the M Laptimer app I've clocked 3.8 to 4.2 0-60 in my car, but that's not scientific. Bottom line - the 340i MPPSK is fast car, way more than enough power for daily driving - and with xDrive, tons of grip. Plus it sounds great!

I meant at 4:02 in the video, that's when the launch is. No clue what the figures were but it clearly got off the line beautifully.

Yes, more than enough power for anyone not racing. Looks a lot of fun

Lmao, plenty of cars stand a damn fine chance of "racing" you. Difference is, you don't own them.

Yeah that launch was awesome and the way he powered through the switchbacks with confidence. I don't think that car had the mppsk, still sounded great and plenty fast. I would want to see this versus performance model 3 in a real road like this.
