The exhaust sounds quieter and quieter every video. Reminds me of the weak 911 Turbo sound or a slightly tuned 335i

Yeah, it just sounds like a 335i with a mild exhaust. Not too impressive.

I'm sure it will be absolutely sick in every regard, but that exhaust note isn't even worth mentioning in the same sentence as the S65 V8. It doesn't even sound as good as my N55. Realise it's still in beta, but yowsa.

+1. Hopefully the exhaust note in the final version will be better!

i gues he is referring to the upcoming c63 amg benz. They will have to clean up the oversteer happy chassis and make a mor balanced machine to compete with the m3

Looks extremely well balanced, and very fast. That exhaust note reminds me of the Vtech civics with exhaust that you used to hear farting all over the streets. I'm sure the final product will be nice to look at, but as mentioned above, the competition will be advancing their V8's.

Most of us dont track our cars, We mod them, enjoy them when we can, but cant really go balls to the walls on a track, I would have rather had the V8 noise when I cruise, accelerate and downshift over the High pitch TTV6 that i'll RARELY get to beat up like this. Just my .02

Any Ring rats on here? When the test M3 passes the wagon, it's on the right. Last time I was driving the ring my friend, (a local, lots of ring time) gave me crap for passing someone on the left, said it was a rule to only pass on the right?

As someone else said, probably not. The F30 335 is slower & handles worse than the outgoing E90 (C&D), the M5/6 has, at least in reviews, fallen significantly behind (how the hell is the new M5 heavier than the AWD S6?!?!). BMW has been heading in decidedly the wrong direction as they continue to pander to the average consumer in this fight to sell more units than Merc or Audi. Enthusiasts are a minority, I understand. BMW wants to make a profit and possibly sell the most cars which means pandering to the average Joe, not the enthusiast, I understand. I just don't like it.

Well, what do you think it is? It's a factory tuned 335. But to be fair, that's exactly what the M3 has always been of course, a factory tuned 3 series. We just got used the M3's and M5/6's having bespoke V8/V10 engines. Now they're just tuned versions of the stock ones.

Exactly, first thing I thought was it sounds like my car. Nothing wrong with that for a 335, but I'd never say my car sounds the best. Just not possible when the exhaust is routing through an turbo. But it's certainly not the back of the neck hair raising sound we've always had in the M3.
