Here's Why I'm Buying the New 2021 BMW M3 Competition!

Auto e motori

My own new 2021 BMW M3 Competition is not far away, and in the meantime I'm getting behind the wheel for a first drive to see what it's all about! The new Shmeemobile is due for delivery imminently, so it's time to get a feel for what it'll be like to use and daily drive.
The new BMW M3 Competition strikes discussion immediately with the new look kidney grilles, however behind those sits a 3 litre flat 6 making 510hp and 550Nm (not 650Nm as said in the video) in the M3 Competition and M4 Competition, and 480hp and 450Nm in the regular M3 and M4. At the moment it's rear wheel drive only, with an 8 speed Auto for the Competition and a manual for the regular car, although an M xDrive AWD Competition Auto model is to arrive in the future as well.
However, this is currently one of the most discussed new models out there, and I've been intrigued to get behind the wheel on the road having driven a prototype out of track a year ago. This particular car is in Tanzanite Blue metallic but features the same Silverstone and Black dual tone leather interior that will be on my Isle of Man Green example. Mine is due to go into build imminently and it won't be long until it arrives for delivery back home.
Thanks for watching, Tim

    The Shmeemobile BMW M3 Competition is due for delivery within a month from now, so with excitement building, I'm delighted to experience what it's like behind the wheel, and how it'll be as a daily drive at home! What do you think about the spec of this car though in the Tanzanite Blue? It certainly suits the Florida sunshine.

    Congrats Tim! Why did you choose to not go for the carbon ceramic brakes? I’m very interested in your point of view. 🕵️‍♂️ btw have you seen the orange specced interior of the new M3? Looking forward to your car and insights👍

    Honestly, when I first saw the new grill design, I absolutely hated everything about it. However, with that being said, and after seeing it in person, it grew on me rather quickly. I wouldn't say I absolutely love it, but I am getting there

    It’s very surprising that you find the number plate “helps” with the front grid’s looks... IMO, it’s the very fact that the number plate is awkwardly stuck in the middle of those kidney grids that make it gross! I don’t mind the design WITHOUT the plate.

    The rear design is disrupted without the integration of the extra width into the rear door. That's a fail and a hard stop for me. Is it too much to ask BMW to have unique rear doors for an M Model? ...and this to say nothing of the grille which in person, now that I've seen it, unfortunately, doesn't look much better. Styling matters.

    Sorry but that rear wheel arch looks like a result of cost reducement to me. BMW kept the rear doors the same as on the 'standard' 3 Series models. Imo they should have flaired the rear doors out to flow with the rear arches. Now the surface just 'jumps off' from the standard door edge to a wide rear wheel arch causing a strange interrupted and very noticabld surface edge line there. It is not a smooth flowing curving surface. Probably too expensive to have the rear doors custom for the M3's, but this just looks not nice imo.

    I have driven BMWs since the 80’s and if I got one of these I would have a body shop modify that ridiculous Chinese market influenced front end. If they just put a bodycolored piece across the grill to split it in two it would be ok. Like it is now🤮🤮🤮
