A review of the BMW M4 by a C63 owner:
I had the opportunity to thoroughly test a new F82 M4 this afternoon. I was able to drive the car on both back roads and the highway. Traffic was minimal so I had plenty of room to have fun (within the bounds of the law, of course).
In short, I was floored (in a good way).
I’ll beef up the quick impressions I’m about to share here later. Feel free to throw out any questions as I’d … CONTINUED

Since a lot of BIMMERPOST members are starting to take delivery of the new M4/M3 … I thought I would put this PSA out for you.
Basically, the first (1200 miles) service is just like on the previous generation M3. The only thing new is that now BMW says you MUST replace the oil pan plug/screw and differential screw/plug with new ones! The crush o-ring is now built into the screw.

BMW M4 Coupe takes on the RS5 Coupe in this Auto Bild performance comparison.
The BMW does 0-100 kmh (62mph) in 4.4 secs (VS 4.2 for the RS5 with DSG). The 0-200 is in the advantage of the M4 in 14.1 secs (VS 14.8).
Weight: 1585kg or 3494 pounds VS 1803kg or (3975 pounds!!) for the RS5.
Lap time (Contidrom measuring 3.8km): 1:34,41 secs (similar to Porsche 911), 2 secs quicker than the Audi. I assume with the DCT version, the M4 would be even quicker… … CONTINUED

By karussell (Jim Chambers):
Finally uncompressed a little after a very busy 2 week trip across the pond. I wanted to write my impressions on the car while everything is still fresh in my mind.
Background. I’m not biased towards any brand of auto. I evaluate all types of cars and the badge on them is the least of my concerns. … CONTINUED

BIMMERPOST member BoostedTerp shares this great European Delivery journal with us, featuring his Black Sapphire F80 M3 beauty:
Hey all, just wanted to document my journey through Europe…first off I’d like to thank BMW for allowing such an amazing experience to be possible. The whole process was seamless from the time I arrived at the Munich Airport to my eventual dropoff in Nice, France. I started out flying out of Washington Monday June 23rd, and landing in Munich the following Tuesday afternoon. My delivery wasn’t … CONTINUED

A technical deep dive and interview with BMW M engineer on the chassis underpinning the F80 M3 and F82 M4.
Mr. Barbisch, the BMW M3 that has now been replaced already had an excellent suspension …?
Bernd Barbisch: The previous BMW M3 already offered a very good suspension basis. It was a benchmark – the one to beat.
Using intelligent lightweight construction we were able to take a considerable step forward in terms of driving dynamics.
The role model here was the BMW M3 CSL, where reduced weight … CONTINUED
