00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:06,480
hey what’s up guys said here and today i

2
00:00:01,839 –> 00:00:08,880
am in the 2020 bmw 320i g20 so this is

3
00:00:06,480 –> 00:00:12,000
the latest three series that you can get

4
00:00:08,880 –> 00:00:14,000
in the market and this is the 320i sport

5
00:00:12,000 –> 00:00:15,920
not m sport okay this is just a sport

6
00:00:14,000 –> 00:00:18,240
version i drove the julia recently and

7
00:00:15,920 –> 00:00:20,320
then um you know this was a car that i

8
00:00:18,240 –> 00:00:22,480
really wanted to compare it with because

9
00:00:20,320 –> 00:00:24,640
the 3 series has always been known to be

10
00:00:22,480 –> 00:00:25,439
very dynamic in terms of driving and all

11
00:00:24,640 –> 00:00:28,080
that

12
00:00:25,439 –> 00:00:30,320
so yeah let’s compare these three series

13
00:00:28,080 –> 00:00:31,760
and julia because to be very honest the

14
00:00:30,320 –> 00:00:33,760
julia is

15
00:00:31,760 –> 00:00:37,440
uh in this segment right i mean i drove

16
00:00:33,760 –> 00:00:40,320
the a4 3 series the f-30 and the e-90

17
00:00:37,440 –> 00:00:43,040
and the c-class uh and the jaguar the

18
00:00:40,320 –> 00:00:44,480
julia is by far the sharpest so i

19
00:00:43,040 –> 00:00:46,480
wanted to yeah i really wanted to get

20
00:00:44,480 –> 00:00:48,879
behind the wheels of this car and then

21
00:00:46,480 –> 00:00:51,199
we can do a comparison more or less

22
00:00:48,879 –> 00:00:54,640
so uh michael the first question is you

23
00:00:51,199 –> 00:00:57,680
know why did you choose the bmw 3 series

24
00:00:54,640 –> 00:00:59,359
so i was looking at a couple of cars in

25
00:00:57,680 –> 00:01:02,480
the similar segment

26
00:00:59,359 –> 00:01:03,760
which is a luxury compact sedan so i was

27
00:01:02,480 –> 00:01:07,360
looking at

28
00:01:03,760 –> 00:01:11,280
cl8 the new one the c180

29
00:01:07,360 –> 00:01:13,600
the w205c class

30
00:01:11,280 –> 00:01:16,080
i was also looking at the audi a4 is the

31
00:01:13,600 –> 00:01:18,560
e9 okay

32
00:01:16,080 –> 00:01:19,759
um but what struck me the most about

33
00:01:18,560 –> 00:01:22,400
this car

34
00:01:19,759 –> 00:01:24,080
scorpio looks like okay it’s it looks as

35
00:01:22,400 –> 00:01:27,240
subjective but

36
00:01:24,080 –> 00:01:27,240
i think

37
00:01:30,159 –> 00:01:35,040
just the different headlights the shape

38
00:01:32,479 –> 00:01:37,360
the shape overall you know yeah uh quite

39
00:01:35,040 –> 00:01:38,640
different from the f30 yes yeah it’s

40
00:01:37,360 –> 00:01:42,000
more of like a

41
00:01:38,640 –> 00:01:42,000
evolution rather than a

42
00:01:42,079 –> 00:01:46,960
refam version of the same car so yeah

43
00:01:44,640 –> 00:01:49,280
that’s what i like about it and

44
00:01:46,960 –> 00:01:51,680
also the size

45
00:01:49,280 –> 00:01:55,119
i’m quite tall yeah by the way the owner

46
00:01:51,680 –> 00:01:56,399
is about 1.98 meters tall right almost

47
00:01:55,119 –> 00:01:57,840
two meters

48
00:01:56,399 –> 00:02:00,159
so uh

49
00:01:57,840 –> 00:02:01,920
you couldn’t fit in the seal i i could

50
00:02:00,159 –> 00:02:04,159
fit in the cla in the driver’s seat but

51
00:02:01,920 –> 00:02:05,759
whoever is sitting behind me ah the

52
00:02:04,159 –> 00:02:06,960
problem not to suffer is really

53
00:02:05,759 –> 00:02:09,440
problematic

54
00:02:06,960 –> 00:02:11,360
similar uh similar thing for the sea

55
00:02:09,440 –> 00:02:13,680
class also okay

56
00:02:11,360 –> 00:02:15,760
because of the roof line was quite

57
00:02:13,680 –> 00:02:17,599
difficult because i when i tried it out

58
00:02:15,760 –> 00:02:20,840
like my parents or my parents were there

59
00:02:17,599 –> 00:02:23,280
with me also okay then you were like

60
00:02:20,840 –> 00:02:24,319
really khan can’t go in the back so this

61
00:02:23,280 –> 00:02:26,319
was the

62
00:02:24,319 –> 00:02:28,560
only was this the only car that you know

63
00:02:26,319 –> 00:02:31,440
was comfortable for everyone oh

64
00:02:28,560 –> 00:02:32,319
i actually didn’t get to try the audi um

65
00:02:31,440 –> 00:02:34,400
but

66
00:02:32,319 –> 00:02:35,599
when i first stepped into this car i

67
00:02:34,400 –> 00:02:39,599
mean

68
00:02:35,599 –> 00:02:40,959
just the interior the size everything uh

69
00:02:39,599 –> 00:02:43,360
really

70
00:02:40,959 –> 00:02:45,599
because i was looking at decent c-class

71
00:02:43,360 –> 00:02:45,599
because

72
00:02:45,840 –> 00:02:49,280
then

73
00:02:47,760 –> 00:02:51,599
this was just

74
00:02:49,280 –> 00:02:54,080
amazing a clear choice

75
00:02:51,599 –> 00:02:55,680
i was looking around also but looks wise

76
00:02:54,080 –> 00:02:57,440
size wise

77
00:02:55,680 –> 00:02:58,560
everything got to test drive it also

78
00:02:57,440 –> 00:03:00,080
okay

79
00:02:58,560 –> 00:03:02,319
so this was a stand-out one this was a

80
00:03:00,080 –> 00:03:04,400
send out okay for my needs we’ve won

81
00:03:02,319 –> 00:03:06,959
this car for about a year a year yeah

82
00:03:04,400 –> 00:03:08,879
okay so how’s your i mean it’s not very

83
00:03:06,959 –> 00:03:09,599
long also but how’s your experience so

84
00:03:08,879 –> 00:03:13,360
far

85
00:03:09,599 –> 00:03:14,319
uh good um no issues no issues

86
00:03:13,360 –> 00:03:15,599
yeah

87
00:03:14,319 –> 00:03:17,519
uh

88
00:03:15,599 –> 00:03:20,000
one thing i think is the sun roof

89
00:03:17,519 –> 00:03:21,680
otherwise sometimes the sun will cover

90
00:03:20,000 –> 00:03:22,879
okay sometimes the close heart closes

91
00:03:21,680 –> 00:03:24,959
halfway

92
00:03:22,879 –> 00:03:27,120
or doesn’t fully close it’s automatic

93
00:03:24,959 –> 00:03:29,440
right it’s automatic i mean i’m guessing

94
00:03:27,120 –> 00:03:30,879
it works fine but sometimes just stop

95
00:03:29,440 –> 00:03:32,560
off with it yeah something just stops

96
00:03:30,879 –> 00:03:34,000
away or you will go here and then it

97
00:03:32,560 –> 00:03:34,720
will come back up

98
00:03:34,000 –> 00:03:36,720
oh

99
00:03:34,720 –> 00:03:38,799
i think like a sensor issue yeah but

100
00:03:36,720 –> 00:03:41,360
actually uh what i do is what i did is

101
00:03:38,799 –> 00:03:44,560
just reset the sunroof by like holding

102
00:03:41,360 –> 00:03:46,480
this button for about 10 seconds

103
00:03:44,560 –> 00:03:48,640
yeah and it works already so just once

104
00:03:46,480 –> 00:03:50,799
in a while do that it’s not a big thing

105
00:03:48,640 –> 00:03:52,879
with it okay okay other than that

106
00:03:50,799 –> 00:03:54,720
everything else has been everything else

107
00:03:52,879 –> 00:03:57,360
up to your expectations

108
00:03:54,720 –> 00:04:00,239
what about fuel consumption for this car

109
00:03:57,360 –> 00:04:02,400
okay so do you drive like fast or how’s

110
00:04:00,239 –> 00:04:04,640
your driving style oh you know sometimes

111
00:04:02,400 –> 00:04:06,000
sometimes young guys like to try yeah

112
00:04:04,640 –> 00:04:09,599
okay got it sometimes a little bit of

113
00:04:06,000 –> 00:04:11,439
spirited driving at 10.8 liters per 100

114
00:04:09,599 –> 00:04:14,159
so that’s slightly under 10 kilometers

115
00:04:11,439 –> 00:04:15,360
per liter yeah okay so actually that’s

116
00:04:14,159 –> 00:04:17,600
not

117
00:04:15,360 –> 00:04:19,840
super good or anything large

118
00:04:17,600 –> 00:04:21,359
but it depends on the way i drive as

119
00:04:19,840 –> 00:04:23,600
well because the tank on this guy is 59

120
00:04:21,359 –> 00:04:27,200
liters right yeah 59 meters okay

121
00:04:23,600 –> 00:04:30,329
actually if i drive really

122
00:04:27,200 –> 00:04:30,329
[Music]

123
00:04:32,960 –> 00:04:36,400
oh that’s not too bad yeah i have to do

124
00:04:34,880 –> 00:04:37,280
the math but okay

125
00:04:36,400 –> 00:04:38,400
and

126
00:04:37,280 –> 00:04:39,199
run like

127
00:04:38,400 –> 00:04:41,360
yeah

128
00:04:39,199 –> 00:04:44,639
okay okay next like what do you like

129
00:04:41,360 –> 00:04:47,840
about your 3 series

130
00:04:44,639 –> 00:04:50,320
as i said before looks i think looks is

131
00:04:47,840 –> 00:04:51,759
very important for me for cars

132
00:04:50,320 –> 00:04:54,880
first thing first

133
00:04:51,759 –> 00:04:56,720
the looks i think it looks very fierce

134
00:04:54,880 –> 00:04:58,320
[Music]

135
00:04:56,720 –> 00:04:59,840
and this is not even the m spot version

136
00:04:58,320 –> 00:05:01,759
this is the spot

137
00:04:59,840 –> 00:05:04,960
trim right correct but even so i think

138
00:05:01,759 –> 00:05:04,960
it still looks very fierce

139
00:05:05,120 –> 00:05:08,560
looks very menacing from the front

140
00:05:09,120 –> 00:05:13,199
secondly the size

141
00:05:11,360 –> 00:05:14,880
you mentioned that that factored into

142
00:05:13,199 –> 00:05:17,120
the buying decision

143
00:05:14,880 –> 00:05:19,520
i think it’s like a baby 5 series i’ve

144
00:05:17,120 –> 00:05:22,479
never driven the 5 series before the g3

145
00:05:19,520 –> 00:05:22,479
yeah the g30

146
00:05:22,720 –> 00:05:26,960
it looks yeah it looks like a baby five

147
00:05:24,960 –> 00:05:27,919
series yeah but the driving feel here i

148
00:05:26,960 –> 00:05:29,919
can tell you right now it’s very

149
00:05:27,919 –> 00:05:30,800
different it’s very very different yeah

150
00:05:29,919 –> 00:05:32,400
yeah

151
00:05:30,800 –> 00:05:33,759
uh what i like about it also is the

152
00:05:32,400 –> 00:05:35,680
handling

153
00:05:33,759 –> 00:05:38,479
you can take corners very well i mean

154
00:05:35,680 –> 00:05:40,720
it’s heavy give it downpour now but

155
00:05:38,479 –> 00:05:42,720
sometimes around the corner so i can get

156
00:05:40,720 –> 00:05:44,720
a lot of confidence

157
00:05:42,720 –> 00:05:46,400
also the exhaust note

158
00:05:44,720 –> 00:05:48,400
yeah the stock exhaust smart exhaust

159
00:05:46,400 –> 00:05:49,680
police stop okay sometimes you put into

160
00:05:48,400 –> 00:05:52,720
sport plus

161
00:05:49,680 –> 00:05:55,840
you rev it

162
00:05:52,720 –> 00:05:55,840
4k rpm

163
00:05:58,720 –> 00:06:01,310
oh yeah

164
00:05:59,759 –> 00:06:03,919
yeah yeah yeah

165
00:06:01,310 –> 00:06:08,240
[Music]

166
00:06:03,919 –> 00:06:08,240
what do you dislike about your 3 series

167
00:06:08,560 –> 00:06:10,880
nothing

168
00:06:11,680 –> 00:06:15,360
i mean

169
00:06:13,120 –> 00:06:16,720
really nothing man but if i have to

170
00:06:15,360 –> 00:06:18,240
nitpick

171
00:06:16,720 –> 00:06:19,440
when i first got the car i have to get

172
00:06:18,240 –> 00:06:20,639
used to all the

173
00:06:19,440 –> 00:06:21,919
modes

174
00:06:20,639 –> 00:06:24,080
okay

175
00:06:21,919 –> 00:06:25,360
like getting into neutral from driver

176
00:06:24,080 –> 00:06:26,960
from reverse you’ve got to be quite

177
00:06:25,360 –> 00:06:28,720
gentle with it

178
00:06:26,960 –> 00:06:29,919
uh in terms of

179
00:06:28,720 –> 00:06:32,000
um

180
00:06:29,919 –> 00:06:35,120
when i first call it sometimes when i’m

181
00:06:32,000 –> 00:06:35,120
in reverse i went about

182
00:06:45,759 –> 00:06:48,800
one push to the next gear right you

183
00:06:47,600 –> 00:06:51,280
don’t really have to shift through that

184
00:06:48,800 –> 00:06:52,319
yes exactly exactly yeah okay okay

185
00:06:51,280 –> 00:06:54,240
but i

186
00:06:52,319 –> 00:06:56,000
i got used to it within the first

187
00:06:54,240 –> 00:06:59,280
weekend you just have to be quite gentle

188
00:06:56,000 –> 00:07:01,199
with it so just uh my overall

189
00:06:59,280 –> 00:07:03,039
i mean like first impressions

190
00:07:01,199 –> 00:07:06,479
this drives very differently from a 5

191
00:07:03,039 –> 00:07:08,400
series g30 because the 5 series g30 is

192
00:07:06,479 –> 00:07:09,840
like the steering is super light like

193
00:07:08,400 –> 00:07:10,550
super duper light like you can turn it

194
00:07:09,840 –> 00:07:11,599
with one finger

195
00:07:10,550 –> 00:07:14,000
[Music]

196
00:07:11,599 –> 00:07:16,000
it’s really very very light

197
00:07:14,000 –> 00:07:17,039
and then it’s also very comfortable yeah

198
00:07:16,000 –> 00:07:18,800
i’m not saying this is not comfortable

199
00:07:17,039 –> 00:07:20,639
this is a little comfortable but just

200
00:07:18,800 –> 00:07:22,240
sitting inside yeah it feels like a

201
00:07:20,639 –> 00:07:23,440
totally different car i think because

202
00:07:22,240 –> 00:07:25,520
the steering

203
00:07:23,440 –> 00:07:28,639
is a bit heavier a way on to the heavier

204
00:07:25,520 –> 00:07:30,880
side not as light as an audi a4 or a

205
00:07:28,639 –> 00:07:31,919
mercedes c-class

206
00:07:30,880 –> 00:07:33,919
so

207
00:07:31,919 –> 00:07:35,199
yeah well but the engine responsiveness

208
00:07:33,919 –> 00:07:38,160
is

209
00:07:35,199 –> 00:07:39,039
for just a small 2-liter 180 horsepower

210
00:07:38,160 –> 00:07:41,840
car

211
00:07:39,039 –> 00:07:44,000
yeah the engine is very responsive

212
00:07:41,840 –> 00:07:47,680
okay slide the whole leg but you know

213
00:07:44,000 –> 00:07:50,080
from a two liter engine single turbo

214
00:07:47,680 –> 00:07:52,000
uh it’s quite expected this car the

215
00:07:50,080 –> 00:07:54,000
suspension doesn’t work the bottom like

216
00:07:52,000 –> 00:07:56,319
there’s no bounce yes in in the

217
00:07:54,000 –> 00:07:58,560
suspension like it just

218
00:07:56,319 –> 00:08:00,800
in a way like sticks to the road yes

219
00:07:58,560 –> 00:08:03,840
yeah yeah that’s why i meant when i say

220
00:08:00,800 –> 00:08:03,840
something i can take corners

221
00:08:04,080 –> 00:08:08,319
the car makes it like that like

222
00:08:06,800 –> 00:08:10,400
so in a way i can say this is a bit more

223
00:08:08,319 –> 00:08:13,599
planted than a four series

224
00:08:10,400 –> 00:08:15,199
because the four series is quite floaty

225
00:08:13,599 –> 00:08:16,720
it does it’s like very comfortable you

226
00:08:15,199 –> 00:08:19,199
know which four series uh they’re a

227
00:08:16,720 –> 00:08:19,199
green coupe

228
00:08:23,840 –> 00:08:29,280
you can really feel the steering like

229
00:08:25,919 –> 00:08:32,159
get heavier immediately yes

230
00:08:29,280 –> 00:08:34,560
i mean also a bit jerky though at this

231
00:08:32,159 –> 00:08:34,560
principle

232
00:08:35,599 –> 00:08:38,479
yeah yeah

233
00:08:37,039 –> 00:08:40,159
you can really feel the

234
00:08:38,479 –> 00:08:42,399
engine working hard yeah

235
00:08:40,159 –> 00:08:45,519
and i don’t know if it’s placebo but um

236
00:08:42,399 –> 00:08:47,960
it’s more pleasant if the brake bites

237
00:08:45,519 –> 00:08:51,680
the biting point is earlier

238
00:08:47,960 –> 00:08:54,080
[Music]

239
00:08:51,680 –> 00:08:56,320
is this sharper than julia unfortunately

240
00:08:54,080 –> 00:08:56,320
no

241
00:08:56,399 –> 00:09:02,640
the way the car just um you know

242
00:08:59,920 –> 00:09:04,399
like julia is like it pivots instead of

243
00:09:02,640 –> 00:09:05,839
turns

244
00:09:04,399 –> 00:09:08,640
yeah it’s like something you just have

245
00:09:05,839 –> 00:09:10,560
to experience then you understand it’s

246
00:09:08,640 –> 00:09:11,600
by the way if you guys are

247
00:09:10,560 –> 00:09:13,519
um

248
00:09:11,600 –> 00:09:14,720
you know considering between a julia and

249
00:09:13,519 –> 00:09:17,600
a 3d series or you’re wondering which

250
00:09:14,720 –> 00:09:19,519
one is sharper julia is sharper but

251
00:09:17,600 –> 00:09:21,440
this is also very good

252
00:09:19,519 –> 00:09:22,560
but julia is just the sensation it’s

253
00:09:21,440 –> 00:09:24,399
just different

254
00:09:22,560 –> 00:09:26,240
you know it’s like

255
00:09:24,399 –> 00:09:28,160
eating at mcdonald’s you get a big mac

256
00:09:26,240 –> 00:09:30,160
or you get a mac spicy both are very

257
00:09:28,160 –> 00:09:32,080
nice very good yeah just that the

258
00:09:30,160 –> 00:09:35,880
sensation is different now

259
00:09:32,080 –> 00:09:35,880
yeah it’s like that

260
00:09:47,519 –> 00:09:52,399
but uh i have some guys in my cargo chat

261
00:09:49,680 –> 00:09:53,600
will have three toy apis

262
00:09:52,399 –> 00:09:57,839
for sale

263
00:09:53,600 –> 00:10:01,040
the g20 yeah the j20 320i is about

264
00:09:57,839 –> 00:10:02,079
a year old okay uh one year one year one

266
00:10:02,079 –> 00:10:06,640
i think around one seven pieces 170 180

267
00:10:04,959 –> 00:10:08,000
something oh yeah speaking of that you

268
00:10:06,640 –> 00:10:09,760
got this car last year during circuit

269
00:10:08,000 –> 00:10:11,440
breaker right yes do you mind sharing

270
00:10:09,760 –> 00:10:14,640
like uh how much you paid for it because

271
00:10:11,440 –> 00:10:16,480
i remember that period cars were like

272
00:10:14,640 –> 00:10:17,279
laylong prices

273
00:10:16,480 –> 00:10:21,760
yeah

274
00:10:17,279 –> 00:10:24,240
my coe in and of itself was only 36k

275
00:10:21,760 –> 00:10:26,079
36k yeah okay you compare it to prices

276
00:10:24,240 –> 00:10:27,279
now now it’s like 60 something six or

277
00:10:26,079 –> 00:10:29,760
something yeah

278
00:10:27,279 –> 00:10:31,360
okay and uh what was the overall car

279
00:10:29,760 –> 00:10:32,760
price

280
00:10:31,360 –> 00:10:36,830
186

281
00:10:32,760 –> 00:10:47,549
186 okay and this is a pi version

282
