The New M4 Coupe is Here!

Recommended Posts

I have a feeling that the designer thought that by putting it like that. The bmw emblem will be more noticeable, especially when you put the bonnet up. Especially to the people who cant tell the difference between different car makes. But still this kind of spoils a really nice car.

If BMW decided to drop the M3 just because it's no longer coupe they'd be shooting themselves in the foot! The M3 badge is still the M3 badge.

The M4 needs to be marketed alongside the M3 so yes there will be an M3 as mneth1986's post..

From Autoblog

our source says the upcoming F82 M4 will arrive with a dual-clutch transmission (DCT) as standard equipment – with no manual option – just like the latest iteration of the track-ready Porsche GT3

If true that is pretty disappointing. I personally wouldn't really go for anything other than a manual M3, unless the alternative was a very good deal.

Very very poor. Why do manufacturers insist on telling us what we want when it comes to transmission options.

Why? Because they are not selling cars to 'drivers', they are selling cars to rich people who want to be able to sit at dinner parties or stand in the 'club' and say "DCT" a lot and spout b******s like "it changes gear quicker than you can blink" etc etc

It looks stunning, stylish yet aggressive. People say BMW are a drivers car but i have to add to that. Its also an admirers car and that is perfect example. Ill have one in 20 years lol

Had a call from a dealer yesterday about this. The m4 is out in oct and the m3 will follow in early 2014. Was told they will have some very interesting deals on release.... Still wont be buying one brand new but if they think thy can tempt me to buy one and i told them i cant but if they want to then I'm going to let them continue to try lol Totally had missed the line in the bonnet too!! Perhaps that says something but now I have seen it, its very obvious all of a sudden. On the gearbox discussion, have a look on pistonheads as there is an interesting piece they've done on the subject... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk - now Free

Apparently both the M3 & 4 will come with a 6-speed manual box as standard with an optional 7-speed DCT. Engine is a 430hp straight-six twin-turbo and they're aiming for a sub-1500kg kerb weight.

Car looks awesome. But certain things they can improve. The bonnet looks abit off especially at the bottom. preferred the e46 style where it merged with the grill.

100% agree with this, do not like that ugly shut line across the bottom of the bonnet, big step backwards imo. other than that it looks mint. too big tho for me, maybe the 2-series will be more similar in size to the e46 coupe.

Watched MotoGP at the weekend and at the start when the pace car heads off you can hear the exhaust - don't know what people are talking about! Sounds pretty "fruity" to me!!

I wouldn't say no!

Still don't agree with the turbo formula but it's growing on me (more learning to accept it).

Saw a black one in Southall. Looked really nice. It was behind me, thought it was the new 5 series, but when it went past, i was like wtf, Damn it looked nice. Gives the beasty look. Similar to the e46 m3.

Saw a black one on my way to work yesterday, pulled out behind me then turned at the next junction. Black is definitely the colour for it, pure Beast!

Saw an Austin metalic yellow m4 yesterday. Spotted it in my rear view a few hundred yards back. It went roaring past. Looked stunning.
