  • The most honest opinion in cars. How he doesn't have his own car show, makes no sense at all.

  • Them wheels, I’m struggling to understand what he means or does he not understand the history of them kind of wheels. I’m confused it’s an M or does he mean it shouldn’t be on that kind of car I really don’t know, I don’t know his sarcasm or anything.

  • Funny he mentioned how the M5 looks like a 5 series. Someone came to my barbers the other month and began talking to the barber about his new car, I looked outside and it was parked a little distance away, it was a 2020 5 series, as a car person I thought nice car. Only when I got outside did I realise it was actually an M5 competition 😂 To me, spending that much on a car should blow you away and it even slipped under my radar and I'm crazy on cars

  • But whay then buy Mercedes S coupe, amg gt4, Bentley Continental GT,... They all use the platform and car parts of cheaper car's. AMG gt4 uses the same platform from mercedes E AMG 63s, Bentley Continental GT uses the same as panamera and it has many interior parts like Audi and Volkswagen. And have even the same v8 engine as Audi. And Chris said it is a great car. 300000€ for a car which shares so many parts with Volkswagen group. No way! I don't understand Chris. And now is struggling with M8. In my opinion, all the coupes are overrated, not just from BMW.

  • All correct, but the 2WD track smoking tire arguement is pointless as 1) almost no one by comparison to the mass takes his sport car to a track and 2) also almost no one drifts their is one of these arguments that is only brought up by journalists when it fits their very certain message they want to convey.....

  • BMW just doesn’t get the design and concept of the 8 series right. Expect for the i8. I personally drive the current M5, which is as fast as the M8 and it’s the ultimate Allrounder.

  • incorrect facts. Its not 167 grand. M8 comp is available with most of the technology is available for 127 grand and it is 625 HP. Amazing to drive and on a best day 0-60 in 2.9 sec. Its loaded with technology. Not a fair review at all with lot of incorrect info.

E28s, E30s, E34s, E36s, those are the M classics that you need to give weight to when you look to these new models and I know Chris would agree!

  • I love the entire 1 series coupe/cabrio line. I’ve wanted one for ages and have finally got a straight six N52 cabrio, if I get some 1M bits it would be perfection. It’s just the right size, so balanced, so easy to safely drift, only problem is the steering is a bit over-assisted.

    Christopher O'GradyChristopher O'Grady7 måneder siden
  • I’d go for the M6 cabrio. Although it should have a manual option. So has to be the much uglier M4 convertible if you like engaging top down driving with back seats

  • I totally disagree with Chris Harris on the M2, nobody even knew about the 2 series till the M2 arrived !!! You barely see one a month on the roads, Chris loves the M2 because it's small and now has the M3 engine,but a great looking car ??? Don't think so ! The 8 series looks mega ,the most beautiful BMW in the lineup,but yes it's very,very expensive

  • I’ve long found myself predisposed to want BMW vehicles. The main reason is the beautiful styling.That being said the M8 is shocking for all the wrong reasons. It’s horrifyingly ugly. From the side view it reminds me of something that has fallen from the south end of a north bound bull.
