The M3 didn't cut it, so subtle tweaks were made to it until it became what we see here.
Oh woe, another video comparing the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio to the BMW M3. Poor you for having the time to watch such things. We already know the two cars are so closely matched that the differentiating factor is the individual driver's preference, not really the car. However, these two guys, Matt Prior and Dan Prosser, are car review pros. When they talk about weight transfer and understeer or point out imperfections, it's feedback seen through the lens of experience.
As the new kid on the block, the Giulia stands out because it's just so good coming right out of the gate. Reliability problems or not, it has a way of lulling in its occupants so that they fall in love with it. It's not just the Italian flair either, this thing can actually drive until its wheels are gone and then ask for seconds.
The BMW M3 Competition, on the other hand, takes a much different approach. In its earlier renditions, it wasn't the smooth and refined track fighter we know it as today. But typical of a German car, or German anything, it got better with time through constant self-improvement that, for the most part, went unnoticed until out of nowhere, it's as if the M3 became a new car entirely. So with BMW at its best and Alfa using magic to become everything a driver could ever want, we embark on this journey to find a winner among cars that are impossible to label as losers. What more could you ask for in a comparison?
