It sounds amazing! Pity the UK version is quieter, as that stock car is pitch perfect just the right amount of noise.

Looks like he scared himself a few times during his test drive. Lol

He meets himself coming backwards in an attempt to damn it with some faint praise, out of all the reviews (the lovers and the haters) I keep coming back to the Matt Saunders review at Autocar a really balanced review from someone who knows his cars.

all these guys are ridiculous. basically they want this M car's handling to be sporty, steering to be heavy and precise, minimal body roll in the curves, and the suspension to be... plush soft?

285 kph in the wet is uh, something.

I've been waiting for this one. Max on AutotopNL really knows his stuff and is an excellent driver. A real enthusiast who gets it right. No comment about lag but notice he keeps revs 3k+ at all times. He does feel it is brutally stiff though.

Although I don't know what he's saying, this appears to be a well-done Review with a knowledgeable Driver. Segment 6:35'-7:25' was interesting to see, and 1:35'-3:10' showing the reaction of his children to acceleration is classic. Would be interested in his summary thoughts on the X3MC if someone understands the language.
