    I know that M140i isn't the sharpest and the most focused hot hatch on sale, but it's certainly the most unique. RWD, inline-6 engine, great noise and it comes with a manual gearbox. Shame that next one will be FWD...

    @Marcel Lukačić with a sports cat and a stage 2 tune it’s an absolute hooligan and sounds amazing. The manual box on the right roads just makes such a brilliant proposition and fairly unique compared to rivals. Just because the 4wd cars have better grip and can accelerate better in the wet doesn’t necessarily make them better or more fun on the road. I had a 4wd before this and it was an absolute weapon but the M140i with the right suspension mods is sublime and totally transforms it to what it should’ve been.

    What very few people mention in the comments is how when rolling (which on the road is usually what you're doing when having a play with another car) the M140i just storms away from all the others. It's quicker by a big margin.

  39. ballsworker97

    ballsworker972 سنوات قبل

    I’ve owned an M140i for about a month now, it’s a savage car and I still haven’t managed to fully push it to its limits it’s generally too quick to do that around English roads unless late at night or no cars in front, which make me wonder how M car owners get on lol... one thing that is pure class is the gear box and I think that’s what sets BMW apart from the rest, the gearboxes are so so good your going to beat most rival Audi’s and Golfs purely on kickdown, gear changes are seamless and as soon as you put your foot down it’s reeling you in. Going full hog off the mark is a gamble as the BM does wheel spin quite a bit if your tyres aren’t warm, drive ability is limited in the wet, but you can fully spank it in the dry and when you do it’s an asbo. in terms of ownership the car has so many sides to it, the fact that it’s rear wheel drive makes it a different car every time you drive it, one day you could be a straight line hero, the next your drift king, the next your opening it up on a nice B road listening to that 3 litre engine spool, which you have to remember is the only hatchback in the world to offer that combination. I read a review of the M140i before purchasing which said “it’s a highly focused, unfocused car” and I would say that’s a spot on description. In my opinion it’s an M car under the bonnet, but it’s a 1 series everywhere else, and I think that’s what let’s the car down in terms of focus, but makes it more of a handful to drive (which is good) for example, breaks could be sharper, rigidity could be improved, that’s probably it though but you can do that yourself for 2k and that’s cheaper than an extremely ott rs3 or a45 which try too hard. Engine performance in my opinion is perfect I’ve not been tempted with a JB4 box or anything like that because I think 350hp (at dyno) is enough for this car and unless your going to upgrade the breaks, tyres, lsd etc it’s not worth doing because it will become un driveable. The car is perfect as it is and you won’t be disappointed :) Not to say the others aren’t good but I think for an enthusiast it ticks all the boxes. Might go and drive it now actually :)

    Ive got a FBO 2016 Focus ST, so I'm always disappointed when I see the RS get beat up in these comparisons. But i also have to remember, its a 6spd. While on the road its not as noticeable, when you're comparing 1/4mi times that are mere tenths of a second apart, that makes a big difference when launching and shifting between gears. These videos always appear to have such large gaps between the vehicles..but from 1st to last is only usually about half a second..there are a lot of factors that can vary the results. I wish they'd do 3 minimum races, change drivers, etc. I think the Focus looks the best. But its kind of cheap and for some reason with all that power/torque, seems to just always be 'good', not the best. Oh well, i still love my Focus platform. its a nice daily driver and plenty quick to mess around if I need to.

I have 800whp holding for 3000rpm of my powerband, traction in every gear, 15k worth of suspension, 315 semi slick's and mild aero (flat under body, diffuser, splitter, wing) and a 720s leaves me for dead.

    @J C if by best you mean cheap and easy to purchase and modify, and very fun to drive. But they have their problems. I mean I am quite quick at my local track, and I have done everything to my car short of turning it into a race car. But you will find lightly modded BMW M2's and the like, just as fast and if not faster than me, as well as things like Golf R's. One of my friends has over 400awkw in his golf R and its very hard to keep up with him. Something like a C7 z06 corvette i would never catch unless in a straight line. Yet these cars are quite affordable to most and have unbelievable potential. 90's cars are just getting left behind

Which brings me to Audi, VW, and Benz lol. There are basically no other options in this category. I wish Toyota made something like a Mini Supra or something. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    @herbert hans You are an idiot. For 90 percent of us common folk we will be driving around town and on the highway 95 percent of the tine probably 15mph over speed limit maximum. Off chance we decide to go bonkers and hit 110 to 120 mph on highway. Car stats mean fuck all. This is why I liked the Toyota 86, Miata, Golf R, and S3. They are driver cars. Not race cars or track cars. Wow you have a GTR! Woah! You can only use 65 percent of its power. If you go past that you are: A. Going way too fast and breaking the law. B. About to kill someone. C. About to kill yourself. For the 10 percent who track their cars. More power to you! However, do not assume everyone cares about track numbers. 400hp is maximum for a street car in my opinion. I spend countless hours in traffic and windy roads. A Ferrari or a Pagani or even an M4 does not fix anything in those situations but make me think my dick is bigger than others.

    @Hakan Yildirim And at the end of the day, it's still a Honda. You people don't seem to realise that we all know that there are far better options if you want the best bang for your buck. But, people choose to drive premium brands, simply because they are premium brands. I wouldn't buy them new, obviously, to much depreciation, but 5 years down the line these cars have lost so much value, and will be still in great shape, that you can't really get anything better at that price range. As an example, I payed 12.000 euros for my Audi A6 3.0tdi, basically fully loaded, and less than 100.000km on the clock.

    The sound of the S3 with the crackle and pop is not a stock sound. To get this sound you need either a catback exhaust or a stage 2 modification. With the later you can go under 4 sec. The Golf R is the same engine, the sound is closer to the stock engine sound.

    @the chicken man BMW did them on the cheap, the engines can run upwards of 400bhp no problem, but the gearbox is already running at its max torque in standard form, you can get the box remapped but it will munch the clutch in a few thousand miles if you like your traffic light drag races. The 135i engine went into the original M2 and they swapped the box for a 7 speed DCT. The inter-cooler is also dog turd

    The RWD version should also beat all of them in a drag race, if Mat would have launched it properly... He wasn't even using launch control. You can see that because the gearbox was in D-Mode and for Launch control it has to be in S-Mode. My stock M140i does the 1/4 mile in 12.5 sec. under perfect conditions.
