It’s here. The sixth generation G80 BMW M3 and *that* massive grille. Being such a controversial car, there was only one person to slot into the carbon bucket seat of this £75k, 503bhp, rear-wheel drive saloon: Craig Revel Horwood. Unfortunately, he wasn’t around, so we put Chris Harris behind the wheel instead. We hope that’s alright.
Here’s what he had to say in this brand new instalment of Chris Harris Drives…

Why they couldn’t take the similar design from the G20? It would’ve looked a little better.

3:49 Should mean DCT gearbox. DSGs are VW gearboxes. Good video though.

I really like the way it looks, especially in that colour, looks like a green beaver. I recon the grill didn’t need to be quite so flat, but I think it looks good

From the outside looking through the windscreen, Chris looks like a 10 year old that stole his dad's car. Can he even see over the wheel? 5:14

I am watching this only because Chris Harris is driving. He is the celebrity of the car Journalism. I like that he was honest about the cars looks. I do not do not like the looks

Spot on about the looks as compared to the F80 (it’s even more striking when you compare the G82 with the outgoing coupe). Amazing to drive though - more controlled than its predecessor and mind blowingly quick. But you should be required to take a test to qualify for the RWD version.

As much as he’s trashing it, I actually like the new design better. I think the number plate breaks up the buck tooth grill just enough. Without that front plate might be a little rough to not just stare at that bit. I prefer the side mirror on the new car too. The side profile is a bit too busy mashed together.

I'm sorry but no matter how good this car might be, I still wouldn't buy one and it's because of the styling. It looks awful. And if I'm spending huge amount of money on a car, it has to be visually pleasing to me no matter the performance.

At 3:49 you mention they’ve gone away from the ‘DSG’ gearbox... F series M cars had DCT not DSG Never the less amazing video!

This is exactly what BMW needed for the new generation clientele. They don't go to the track. They drive to the grocery store. Love the comment about the people that are actually still working at BMW M. lol. Hail to the F chassis. Best BMW chassis ever built since the E30 and the F80/82 possible the best looking front end of any BMW ever built. The dashboard was also awesome. I think BMW has loser on their hands and I am a BMW guy to the core. Have owned them all. I need to drive one I guess before I comment. Lots of competition around to make a watered down M3. The new G80 should have been the F82 GTS to start with and move forward. Period.

Shame on you, BMW! What were you thinking??!! Fine, it may perform, but we want a car that looks mean. Not a car that looks like a sleeper. I'm keeping my F82 FOREVER. Oh, and thanks for giving me a boost in my M4's equity.

I think the new transmission will prove it’s worth in longevity. BMW is addressing warranty concerns and Powertrain is always a focus to improve. I think this was a very calculated change on BMWs part. Time will tell

BMW has lost their entire market to Tesla sorry to say. If they can put the driver back in electrics then I think they can gain share back. It looks like they are throwing up the white flag though

Do the diffuser's on these cars even do anything? Im very confused the muffler is so big that it blocks all the area infront of the diffuser. In F1 the diffuser extends to the centerline of the rear wheels and so the downforce is felt right on the axle. these diffusers I feel do absolutely nothing for downforce.

Lol fake noise piped through the speakers to make the engine sound decent. Why are people ok about that? People no doubt raving about how “analog” it is and how it’s the last hurrah (of 100 more last hurrahs to follow) against the march of EVs, whilst overlooking the fakery. Seats looks decent though.

Been interested in cars my whole life but I don't know mutch about them other than looks. Harris is exeptional at conveying information so it makes sense to one who dosn't know mutch about cars. I haven't watched one episode of Top Gear since the OG three quit but discovered Harris on YT and he makes me want to start watching Top Gear again. He's damn good at his job!

Personally, I think that it looks like a failed attempt by Kia to make a car that looks like a BMW. Too many meaningless "features" that detract from the looks. I'm sure that it's very fast and very capable on a race circuit, but how relevant is that to anyone other than people who want bragging rights that their car is the latest M3? I know people with 2 or 3 year old M3s who leave it in "Comfort" and never put their foot down more than about 1/3 because they want to save fuel and reduce emissions. Why buy an M3 in the first place? What I want is a car that's capable of driving long distances at high speed and I feel fresh at the end of a 10 hour drive, a car that can accelerate faster than most other cars, a car that's got a nice exhaust noise without being a pain, good stereo, comfortable seats, luggage capacity, reasonable fuel economy, and it must be manual.

Chris Harris is a fantastic motor journalist and an even better driver. Keep hold of this man Top Gear - he's by far the best you've got! I'm an F82 M4 owner and that new M3 is absolutely one of the ugliest things to come out of BMW I think ever - such a shame BMW's design philosophy has gone that way. I think I'll be keeping a tight hold of my M4 for the foreseeable future!

Did he jst say the C63 is gona be a 4cylinder 😂 ? Yes this M3 does not look as great to be honest and of course driving a car that performs this good and then hate how it looks on the outside .. bit of a let down BMW 🤦🏻‍♂️
