Smile 2019 BMW M4 Comp or 2019 Lexus RC300h?

Hey Guys,

Throwing a question out there, so I recently got the chance to experience he 2019 Lexus RC and my friend has the 2019 M4 Comp. Both are great looking cars and drive very different. Having owned many BMW's I am drawn towards the lunacy of the M4. However, the quality and comfort of the RC appeals as a daily...

What would you choose??

For abit of fun I made a video on them both if anyone wants to check them out??

Would you rather go to the gym or just buy this?

Is this a serious question? You're comparing a hybrid RC to a M4? At least get a RC F. Sounds like another clickbait video.

Kind of apples to oranges as one car is a soft 4000 lb GT cruiser and the other is more track oriented with a punishing ride in comparison.

Seriously?? You're comparing apples to cow dung.

M4 Comp hands down, without question.

You should also consider a late 90s Buick in this to keep it fair and consistent.

Well I used what I had available, and for everyday driving do you want a car that gets 23mpg or one that gets 50mpg? One that is harsh riding or one thats comfortable?

To a four thousand pound Toyota with an anemic motor.

This is a silly comparison. Should I buy a Wrangler Rubicon or a RAV4 Hybrid?

Yep.
Coming from an OP with few posts, who drives a diesel, click-bait it is!

a

P.S.: RC-F does have a lovely V8 that sounds absolutely great. A bit on the heavy side, but that hardly matters for a daily.
