Re: BMW 3er (G20) 2019 *Now with First Drives*

I must have glossed over that the 3-series M-sport now actually includes a real LSD and has more significant shock/spring/bushing tuning relative to the base model than in the past.

Now if only...

Re: What's your verdict on the exterior styling of the 2019 BMW Z4?

Re: BMW 3er (G20) 2019 *Now with First Drives*

You’d have to ditch the run flats and figure out a spare - that’s my main complaint with our 2015 328d M-sport (wagon). The 28i with the 240hp turbo would be more than fine for DD duties stock imo,...

^ id think M3 would make more sense as optional xDrive vs standard switchable for exactly that reason. Plus cost, which is less of an issue on the M5 (as is weight).

Would hope the M3 retains a...

30th Anniversary of the Porsche 964

^ I have grown to much prefer the 964 aesthetics to the 993 (loved the 993 initially though). I think the more upright headlights of the 964 are a big part of that.

Having driven nothing older...

But is Ł45k consolation enough? Sounds like the 911 was a much better fun street car.

Re: C&D Road Test: 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata

^ and frankly a nice full bolt-on S52 version would be just as much fun plus cheaper to buy and run (and marginally lighter)?

The new Miata is a slam dunk either way, very well done.
