BMW 2 Series Active Tourer

The news that BMW would expand its portfolio to include front-wheel drive models was hardly met with universal excitement in this community. BMW, of course, is all about rear-wheel drive, a low center of gravity, driving dynamics, emotion. But alas, the times are changing: In recent years, we got the “Gran Turismo” models; we witnessed the demise of the naturally aspirated in-line six; … CONTINUED

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

BMW M4 Coupe takes on the RS5 Coupe in this Auto Bild performance comparison.

Some numbers:

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

A great detailed review from a track veteran and new owner of an M4 coupe, from his recent experience at the Spa Francochamps Circuit and Nurburgring.

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
