Video BMW M4 first drive

For those of you interested here is my video on the new replacement BMW M4

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!


Nick

Great review as usual, thanks for posting,
IMO the new blue is very far from "disgusting", finally a proper sporty color from BMW.
BTW I think the sound you hear when coming to a stop is the active sound feature (aka digital enhanced sound through the speakers)

Congrats!
Welcome back Nick! Always love watching your vids.
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!

What is the deal with the stuffed gorillas at the back? Are they your imaginary friends?

If I see a guy driving a brand new M4 with a camera on his head, dog beside him, 2 gorillas at the back, I am not sure what to think.

Anyways, looking forward to the comparison with 991.

I was a bit surprised by that comment. I love the yas marina blue.


I am not a fan of the digitally enhanced sound piped into the cabin.


Thanks for the review, Nick, and enjoy the M4 in good health. I'm a former M3 owner myself and still love M cars.

Congrats, been thinking of getting back into a M3 myself after they facelift it.
I hate the Yas Marina Blue also, but colour is a personal thing.

Must be nice to have some decent torque, and at least you have cup holders that actually work!!! LOL

Good question. I sure don't want to see their backsides.

Why does my gut feeling say that Nick will have problems with this one to?


He seems to fancy first year model cars after a redesign :-)


And by the way, don't like the blue Calipers. Looks too K-mart ish.

Nick,
Nice to see you back! You've got to ditch the head camera mount though. I was getting pretty nauseous with the video bouncing all over the place.

Thumbs up

Drive those roads all the time, glad no "supermom" hit your new ride . Great review, great color, love Sakhir Orange. Maybe I will see you when I am out and about on the crappy CT roads. Enjoy your new ride.
