It’s time to answer the question you’ve all been asking… Which BMW M3 AWD colour is quickest – black or yellow?

…Ok, not really! However, these two BMW M3s are still going head-to-head, because although they look the same, all is not as it seems! You see, while the yellow M3 is the regular car, the black one has had a Stage One tune! So the question is, just how much quicker is it?

Well, let’s take a look at the stats. Both cars are packing the same 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six, and both cars weigh in at 1,780kg. However, while the regular M3 puts down 510hp & 650Nm, the tuned edition delivers an awesome 600hp & 750Nm!

So, the result may be a foregone conclusion, but just how different will the performance be?! There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

  1. The team at Wrench Studios tell us this tune was only in development when we filmed this video, and that their M3 is now MUCH quicker!

    Should we get it back in for another video? Hit LIKE if you think we should!

  2. All I'm saying is any future enthusiast better be fkn loaded.

    Owning any car from 2015 and up.. the maintenance is going to be debilitating. U will likely get a divorce if ur married or live in it if ur single.

    Or u gotta be stupid rich. There will be zero other options. Working on anything urself nowadays. Ha.

  3. Tuned cars are extremely unreliable
    Yes you can make 8 or 9 fast Launches
    What about the Gearbox , Turbos , Engine Colling , electronic clutches , differentials
    How do you know they can handle the extra power

  4. Does the programming of the ECU for better performance hinder engine life? Does it affect the emissions of the car (does it still meet environmental laws)?

  5. The unmodified car with steel brakes stopped shorter and you still said that carbon ceramics are better even on just a single stop🤷. Get some sleep Matt.

  6. Carbon ceramics are generally bigger than steel breakers in same cars but just for a couple of millimeters. I don't know if that much difference effects the breke performance of the first try.

  7. Still same time with a non modified Tesla Model 3 Performance with it's warranty still valid and u 20000£ in your backpocket and nearly no maintenance.
