One of the reasons I chose the M240i. The front and there are so many M440i's around here in OC.

Impressive time. This one does not even have the larger front tires of the M Pro Pack and PS4S tires…this with sport cup 2 tires would be dangerously close to the M2 CS time.

some very good times for both cars, glad to hear the positive comments on the new X Drive system, more RWD bias as BMW claims

I almost put down a deposit and custom ordered the M240i over the M440i GC, but the hatch on the GC won me over. Still getting used to the big grills, but with shadow line package the grills are hidden relatively well. Not sure how I feel about the triangles on the M240i, I much prefer the non-M sport front fascia that the 230i has.

Subjective looks aside, really great video! Given that the G26 does have a mild hybrid (+11hp with eboost) - not sure why the G42 does not (come on bmw??), I guess that helps a bit with its heavier set up in 0-60 and around the track w/ half a second slower than the G42.

Another 13 minute long video that could've been 2 minutes.

Did he just say the G42 is the "spiritual successor" to the F80?

I don't know anything anymore...

They say that every generation now.

That the newest small coupe (1 series and 2 series) are the REAL successor to the E46 M3!

But the M2CS arguably comes closest!

Keep in mind that videos have to be at least 10 minutes because it helps with monetization, notice most big Youtubers videos are in the 11-15 minute range.

I'm glad to see another larger YouTube channel release a video on the M240! But why are we seeing all the comparos and not full reviews of the M240?

Im glad they went in expecting not to like the cars, but came out impressed! Definitely makes me feel better about getting the xDrive. Should be a blast (when I get it) when I put PS4S's on it in the spring!

I'm perplexed anyone would even spend 30 second watching these YouTubers "review" videos. Anything to crank out content for likes, follow and views.

I rewatched the video and noticed the M240 was a lot more tail-happy than the M440 GC. It could be the car, or it could be the driving being more playful with the car, but I bet that if he drove just a bit differently the M240 would shave at least a few more tenths off their time.

Interesting how drag it was so far ahead and on the track only few hundreds of a second.

I figured shorter wheel base and weight advantage will be a bigger difference.it means a coupe m440 can match the lap time

Overall no surprises here

Right. But any "review" is about 90% opinion. Unless they're stating facts.

Still can't get passed that front end. M240i is an easy choice. Sure the GC offers more praticality, but it's even heavier...I would get the M340i over a GC440i.
