Arrow Video: Chris Harris Reviews BMW M135i vs Audi RS3 on Road, Track and Dragstrip

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
This just came on today, hope you enjoy it

Quote:
BMW's M135i [official specs/details] undercuts the RS3 by 10k in base spec, it's only 20hp down and weighs 150kg less. Can a sub M-car beat Audi's premium fast car representation?

Sorry the earlier link didn't work and thanks Ovekam for backing me up there, Cheers.

Maybe Harris doesn't know that there is now a fake differential brake that enables itself when you switch off the DSC? I suspect that is why he didn't have his expected traction problems.

We'll likely get the M235i (or M240i) and the M2.

What an impressive little car! A little faith has been restored in BMW...a little. Oh, and we can't get it here.

I think we will eventually get it in a coupe version. High end hatchbacks are a tough sell in the USA. For now we have the not boring 135is.
