Hey guys

I had the chance to drive an M4 Competition for a weekend and I have already written up a story to which you guys responded very kindly. Thank you. 😊

I find this review to have a very biased and negative approach.

You need to elaborate. He had absolutely nothing negative to say about the car. What's negative?

The grill I can understand, but the tail lights, the interior being small….it's just the overall tone.

I agree with you that the car is not able to be properly appreciated on the road. Driving around on public roads just beckons the track.

The grill I can understand, but the tail lights, the interior being small….it's just the overall tone.
He mentioned he thinks the sedan tail lights look better (which I agree). He goes as far as saying he like the looks of the M4 (which I don't, from any angle, I prefer the M3 10 to 1, I'd be negative for sure).

The size is a fact. The interior space is a fact and a perception. For being so large, one would expect the backseat to have more room than the smaller car. The same is true of the M8, for example.

You can tell he loves the car.

I get the tone, Hes taking the POV of a purist skeptic (the haters). I dont want to like this car...but we know how it ends...

That's pretty much all you can do in Switzerland but that is not a complaint because that mountain pass road (Sustenpass) in particular is extraordinarily fun to drive.

Yep, and it doesn't look it's going to go in a different direction any time soon.

Actually I feel similar. I mentioned something like that in the video with my M2C. That one works for me because it looks classically BMW which is true for the G80 M3 as well (at least in profile).

I actually felt that way. I didn't actively try to sabotage my feelings towards the car but I didn't think I would like it but once you drive the car you can clearly recognise the engineering effort that went into the it.

And that bit** didn't get any slower (at least not that I could tell) from being kicked heavily. 😁

Thanks, mate! Oh, absolutely! If we didn't have those roads, we'd literally have nowhere fun to drive. 🙈

I like your review. Very objective and balanced with good analysis and assessment. Close to the straightest down the middle review I've seen. Beautifully shot too 👍🏽

I like any M video review where the reviewer is not wearing $9 mirrored sunglasses (e.g. Shmee)

More car shots. Less you shots. Ease up on the color grading.

Nice review regardless.
