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.
F8x S55 engine…

Motortrend strapped a F80 M3 and a E92 M3 onto a dyno for a head-to-head power comparison. The final figures show that the F80 M3 / F82 M4 even more powerful compared to the E90/E92 M3 than BMW’s officially advertised figures.

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

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.
