16 M3 Competition vs Giulia QV vs C63 S

Cover for M3 Competition vs Giulia QV vs C63 S

Auto Motor und Sport have compared the three "BMW 3-Series sized" sports-sedans in a full instrumented test. Unfortunately, there is no Audi RS4, because Audi have not refreshed their "M3 killer" in years.

And here are the laptimes in finishing order: M3 - 0:45.5, C63 - 0:46.1 and Alfa - 0:46.6.

There's a great Latvian saying: "BMW - tas nav auto. Tā ir diagnoze."

Translates to "BMW is not a car. It's a medical condition."

I communicate with them a lot, usually via hand gestures though.

I guess BMW owners do bring their cars to events like trackdays. I don't really know since I don't communicate with THEM that much.

Why the argument? Does anyone actually track these cars anyway? Lap times are pretty irrelevant for cars in this class.

Which track is it though?

and thats ladies and gentlemen a big loss for bmw.the super lightweight stripped of super hightech automatic transmision is only 0.6 faster than a family superluxurious benze and 1,1 from a family saloon manual transmision alfa.if alfa was lighter and wasnt built towards being a family saloon she would be fastr than m3 competition.same for benz.the black series are gonna destroy m3/m4.a competizione version of the giulia will do the same.the only thing that the m3's got famous was the driving experencie.and.........boooooooooooooooom m2 was born. m3/m4 is one of the biggest dissapointments of all time.PERIOD

Even me - the most biased German car nazi and Porsche fanboy*, have to agree that comparing manual vs two dual clutches is a bit silly. No 8 speed press car or dealership test car in the entire Germany?

* - I am actually neither of those things :D

i can't do anything else except lolling. you can't out-german germans, can you? or maybe british and americans can? LOL, i remember few years ago, a mega comparison by the very same magazine between 10 mid-sized saloons, 4 of which were from german brands.
guess in the subjective final ranking score, in which position the 4 german cars placed? yes, you guessed it right! LOL. There is 1 chance out of 210 to get a result this positive, were the cars more or less good the same.
Back in the days, even quattroruote (italian magazine) published this entire comparison (where the italian car was being considered as crap) in an issue. so much for QR patriotic attitude LOL, man, you can't out-italian italians, either...

The M4 and M3's always win. Benz is overweight, Alfa is new - but promising.
