Chris on the G8x M3:

Did I say Gorgeous (Snout)?
"Yeah, that's not gorgeous. It's not."

How's the car?
"It's a really good car but it doesn't do it for me, and I don't see many around, do you? I don't think they're selling well. I think they're selling like bacon in a bar mitzvah night."

LOL, short & brutally blunt!

Hes telling us what we already know which is the car is great but it doesn't look so great so we will wait. I saw the IS300 yesterday and it was a nicely styled car looked tight all around, looks solid, rims were nice, and they even made the grill work. Nice recovery Lexus. Why can't BMW do that?

i likethat he keeps it real and doesn't care about a cars badge or hp numbers / lap times. He could probably afford any of those cars but mainly drives a GT3 touring and M2CS with a manual.

saying Hyundai i30N > Ferrari SF90 is going to ruffle some feathers lol.

Funny enough the G80 actually looks like a Giulia copycat, right down to the color even

Why don't they make a manual again???

Does anyone have the numbers on the G80 manual take rate so far. Itís probably far less then the F80 due to non comp only availability.

They did offer a Manual on the QV for the European market but it was discontinued and not offered in the US.

I love the M5 CS!

Most comparison tests still pick the Giulia QV over the M3 Comp. With the GTA the Giulia is turned up yet another notch.
