When it comes to spark plugs, there are two main types: platinum or iridium plugs. Platinum plugs are less expensive but don’t last as long as iridium plugs.

The latest vertical grille design from BMW puts the “don’t judge a book by its cover” adage to the test, but it also serves to underscore it if you can get past the front end of the 2022 BMW M3 and climb inside. The legendary M3 still offers power, handling, and overall performance that makes it deserving of the M logo, as well as all of today’s technology in a user-friendly and luxury vehicle.

The BMW M3’s new xDrive all-wheel-drive system will be available for the first time in 2022, adding to the car’s longstanding history. It’s only available on the top Competition variant with an eight-speed automatic, but it promises to speed up acceleration while providing drivers a better cornering advantage. Even better, if you want to perform some enormous smoke drifts, you may switch to a rear-drive-only function intended for track use only (wink wink).
