VIDEO: Throttle House Reviews the 2021 BMW M440i – BMWBLOG

Back when I drove the BMW M340i on the road for the first time, I said that it was an extremely fast and capable car but also a relatively boring one. The BMW M340i can provide 80-percent of the F80 M3’s skills but with none of its thrills. When the BMW M440i was announced, I had some hope, though. BMW claimed its lower center of gravity, added negative front camber and revised suspension tuning meant that it’d be better to drive than then M340i. In this new video from Throttle House, we get to see whether or not that’s true.

As it turns out, it’s not. The BMW M440i is almost exactly the same as the M340i; it’s very fast, very comfortable, shockingly capable and entirely numb. However, the BMW M440i has the added disadvantage of being frightening to look at. That new grille is just not good and I must agree with Throttle House’s two hosts; it’s not going to grow on us, it doesn’t look better in person and it’s not actually for cooling anything. It’s just wrong.
