Review: Chris Harris drives the new BMW M3 | Top Gear reviews

March 18, 2023

It’s here. The sixth generation G80 BMW M3 and *that* massive grille. Being such a controversial car, there was only one person to slot into the carbon bucket seat of this £75k, 503bhp, rear-wheel drive saloon: Craig Revel Horwood. Unfortunately, he wasn’t around, so we put Chris Harris behind the wheel instead. We hope that’s alright.

Here’s what he had to say in this brand new instalment of Chris Harris Drives…

Prefer your M3s a bit more old school? Here’s The Stig drifting the n/a E92 BMW M3 GTS:

  1. Prefer your M3s a bit more old school? Here's The Stig drifting the n/a E92 BMW M3 GTS:

  2. I'm actually impressed by the grill it's awesome. Why do people hate it

  3. ok lets be be the 3 and 5 series have been BORING as HELL to look at for the last 20 years. Remove the badges and they literally look like a honda or toyota . at least now they look like something

  4. This video is the reason I just purchased a F80 M3 CS

  5. The F series has exactly the same same ‘drop in height’ at the windscreen…what are you on about??

  6. A year and a half since the new M3 released, still hasn't grown on me whatsoever.

  7. Still prefer the Alfa QF.

  8. Chris is f brilliant yes drive it like a knob ,but i must say its f ugly.

  9. You’re right on with that face about the look! Why do they do it? No matter how much you criticize, it doesn’t seem to matter to bmw

  10. Jew 23 r we still bitching bout how eng made us mills

  11. I think it's full of character and makes every other M3 look boring

    With Chris Harris Top Gear can become bigger then the "real" Top Gear. He is 🤟🏻

  13. the f80 is legendary

  14. I loved the reviews so much I went out and bought a new M3. Disappointingly I have owned the car for a year and a half now and my car has been at a BMW dealership awaiting a faulty part from Germany for two months. the sad part is that it is not a major part. I have written to BMW Australia and they are unresponsive as to when the part will arrive in Australia and my car repaired. Very poor customer service from what I thought was a trusted brand. They hide behind a call center located in the Philippines which are trained just to fob you off. disgraceful at best. As it stands I am paying very expensive finance and insurance for a car I cant even drive and have no idea when I will get it back.

  15. Looks great.

    That M3 comes in an outstanding colour option. My BMW 3 is a classic grey, in need of a paint job.

  19. For that ugly grill blame goes to some guy from some high risk country, Croatia 😂🤣😅…He is the bmw designer 😂🤣 Bravo BMW hahaha

  20. It’s just the fact there’s no beauty to it. Like the licence plate slapped over the front of the grill doesn’t look right. Last good looking BMW is the F series M2

  21. It's sad that I'll never be able to afford one of these and experience the ultimate driving machine

  22. Chris's objective opinion really helps the consumer make a choice on whether it's a car for you or not?

  23. You might do better reviews if you weren't sat in the car like a Harlem pimp in a 72 Eldorado. Or are you just tiny?

  24. Love your videos as always. If you had your choice of keeping a 2018 M2 or trading up to this M3 would you?
