      I imagine petrol heads as equestrians. They prefer inferior tech but like the experience of using outdated modes of transportation... at lease horses have self-driving

      Seems like Thomas would be happy with the Tesla if it had a feature to make it loud, delay the acceleration, make the steering worse and offer make the turn signal a shifter.

      Throttle House Not being a wet blanket but driving and demonstrating the Tesla’s iPad stuck on dash is surely dangerous if mere mortal is driving ......incidence of accidents greater yes? Maybe you should mention this? love your reviews non the less!

        good video but i have to say i am tired of people Comparing the M2 to the Model 3 (When it should be compared to the Model S) as i have not found anywhere that these cars are in the same range either in Class / Price / Power ! So yes that is a little BS which i understand all car reviewers have to protect their jobs :) - but yes one thing no reviewer talks about is the Fuel & Maintenance cost difference with the Tesla costing 1/5th the Price per year - Tesla have proved themselves again and again with that Everyone have a lovely day .......

          Sorry any gas car is irrelevant at this point. I don’t doubt the BMW is fun, but the clear choice is Tesla.

              Engine, glorious sound, sublime looks, basic sports dials rather than a massive I Phone = No competition. M2 Comp ALL the way.

                      I found the fact that a 7 years old tech company think they can produce a car that beats BMW M very unsettling.

                          Wait, but you have the dual motor, not even the performance. This isn’t 100% fair but I’m still gonna enjoy it lol.

                            The tesla model 3 long range base goes for 39k, how did u come up with 60k? Tesla model 3 performance base goes for 47k still not 60k and u choose to use a long range? This video seems biased.

                                I think it is a return to M. Because the M2 is light and about performance. The other M's are overweight. So yeah, a little elitist. Sorry. I hate how big they have all grown. A M3/M4 now is what a M5 used to be. M5 is a M7.

                                      i wld take the M2 Comp hands down, although I am sure I would like the Tesla. The exterior on the Tesla is boring. I drove a 202 M2 and didn't like the exhaust note. I own a Jag F-Type now so maybe have a high standard on exhaust, but it was a deal-breaker for me. Great review though - good analysis with some laughs

                                        Well, we all know which one looks better from a design standpoint (BMW if case you couldn’t tell). If Tesla ever reaches the build quality and design of BMW, Porsche, etc... , Tesla will rule.

                                              When you guys first did this video I admit I thought it was a sort of crazy comparison. Now I find myself picking between exactly these two cars. Headed towards the M2 Competition because I don’t want to give up having an M car, but still find myself wanting a Model 3. The convenience of charging at home, AWD for the bad weather, auto pilot for the daily commute, and overall cool technology is very appealing. For putting the windows down and enjoying the sound of the car or going to the track, I’d pick the M2. But the Model 3 Performance was still a lot of fun to drive down a twisty back road.

                                                      I'm actually thinking about selling my 2013 m3 E92 for a model 3 performance. I could have the power of an m2 with the efficiency of full electric. 🤔

                                                        After 5 years of not having it, I still miss my 2012 E92 M3 a lot. That V8 screaming over 8000 rpm is amazing.

                                                          I’m a 45-year gear-head veteran who’s owned BMWs, Corvettes, Mercedes, Toyotas, Saab... pretty much everything, and my 2015 Tesla Model S 85D is the best car I’ve ever owned, bar none. I keep an old E36 for track days, but I can’t wait to replace that with a Model 3 Performance. ICE is just so... ancient and bothersome after driving the Tesla.

Tesla Model 3 Performance ($56k) v. BMW M 340xi ($56k). You can find a Bentley and a Ferrari for around the same price but that comparison isn't really fair. The 2-door M2 v. a 4-door Tesla? Nah--just as absurd.

Tesla's have very little moving parts, and that is the Golden Rule in engineering because they last longer.
