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

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.

As a followup to their F80 M3 Dyno and Weight, EAS had an opportunity to once again weigh another M3 for comparison. Racewerkz Engineering swung by their shop yesterday with their new Mineral White F80 M3 & Alpine White F82 M4. Naturally, the first order of business was to see how the M4 would do on the in-house Dynojet dyno.
Just like the Yas Marina Blue M3 dynoed last week, this Alpine White M4 further proved that BMW has seriously underrated the F8X’s horsepower … CONTINUED
