2nd year in production (1st year for US shores). Standard ROE for German cars. You have to believe some issues experienced in Europe during the first year of sales would be addressed before hitting here. Even though the cars aren't 100% identical. There's enough overlap.

Advice: Stop buying sports cars and buy a civic. You are unlucky and have too many problems with them.

While I did not say it in the video it might interest you guys that the M4 feels SO big and heavy after coming from the C2S. I am sure I will get used to it. I know I will also miss the shape of the 991, still the most beautiful car on the road in my view. I look forward to getting back into a 911 at a future date maybe the 2016 MY.

Mean time I am sure I will have fun in the M4 and happy to post updates if you are interested.

Have a great weekend Porsche friends!

Great review Nick. Looking forward to future reviews once you get more time behind the wheel of M4.

Ignore the haters

Oh boy.. I got a little worried at 11:20 into the video about reading the manual concerning flashing airbag and dash lights...

Glad to have you back Nick. Congrat's on the new car. Many happy, safe miles.

Silly thought but I wonder if all the stuff (phones, case, etc.) you had in the passenger seat was giving off some sort of false positive for the passenger seat and thus the airbag. Just my first thought.

As a current E90 M3 owner (6 speed sedan) I'll be anxious to follow these videos from you as well.

I believe the sound you're hearing is the turbo whine/spool.
My X3 35i makes a similar sound.
Hopefully the airbag light is nothing major.
Keep us posted and go enjoy that beast!
Holy crap he already has a problem with this car??? Airbag light??

Congrats on the M4 and thanks for another great video. I look forward to your next videos, and in particular your thoughts of the M4 vs. the 991 C2S after living with the M for a bit. Sakir Orange does look really nice, BTW.

Its tempting but you really can't compare a C2S to an M4 - they are such different cars built for totally different market segments. I would have recommended you went an ///M6 instead of an ///M4. Anyhow really enjoyed your video and I actually think BMW hit it out of the park with ///M4 when you actually get down to what they were trying to achieve.

I'm still not too sure what to think about the M4. I guess I'll have to drive one and see. Good video, thanks for posting.

Good luck Nick! Hopefully you have learned your lesson about carrying kayaks around on sports cars.

Yeah, you'd "have to". I had to. Heck, I even bought a second year (US) car which presumably gave them an extra year to debug it, and it was still a piece of crap. I'm referring to the BMW. Not my precious Porsche.

I used to think that I had bad luck with cars, and then I found Nick. Best of luck.
