So while we're watching this for free it's worth noting:

Drive+ is a paid channel which is what allows them to bring us longer, better content. See:
Subscribe to Drive+ to support these guys. They make good content and I don't mind giving a few bucks to actually help them make this stuff. Sucks that this stuff gets distributed for free but I guess that's the reality of it.

Interesting how he says the steering on the F80 is much better than E92 that he felt was not as connected or communicate to the driver. This is contrary to opinion with most everyone on the E9x forum opinions who love to talk about the great steering of that car. Chris seems really in love with this car and having driven this fine machine on track and street I have to agree. In the end nothing really new and about what I expected.

Wow, this video is pretty convincing, especially considering that he's owned an E92 before.

E9X steering felt artificial and too quick? I don't know about that...that's a descriptor of an electric steering rack.

I think Chris is gonna have one.
Couldn't use all the power of the last one regularly. This one has to be complete utter drunken intoxication of power.

All those things are still true. Does one reviewer's opinion (who also said the F80 steering lacked feel) outweigh that of a slew of owners, many/most with tuned steering and many of whom are now F80 drivers?

The E46 didn't suddenly become a piece of crap when the E9X came out, it's still a great car even today. Nothing about the F8X dimishes the E9X's accomplishment's either. The sour grape conglomerate and the butthurt white knight brigade are both equally pathetic. You are all losers.

Anyway, great review from Harris, from the look on his face, he must have gone through at least three pairs of pants due to "happy accidents". Too bad the review wasn't longer. Now to swiftly cancel before the trial period expires!
