Taking a BMW M4 Convertible from Seattle to Los Angeles along the Pacific Coast Highway was one of the best road trips I’ve ever done. The car deserves a lot of credit for that.
It’s about 1,137 miles from Seattle to Los Angeles if you drive the most expedient route, the inland U.S. Interstate 5. Go ahead and do it that way — if you hate fun, yourself, America, and the idea of discovering some of the best driving roads on this continent.
Can you ever really know what happens to your car after you hand over the keys to a valet? Maybe they'll park it carefully and go about the rest of their day; maybe they'll go hoon it into the ground. Or maybe they'll use it to make a bizarre, rambling YouTube "review" that ultimately costs them their job.
Marco Wittman just won himself the 2014 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters drivers' championship in his fancy rainbow-covered racing version of the 2015 BMW M4. Congrats, Marco! Now BMW wants you to feel like you can be a champion too with this special edition M4.
The BMW M3/M4 are probably the most anticipated and capable new sports sedans on the market. You want one. So do we. How would you have it?
I generally don't like yellow cars at all, but I can't get enough of this color. I think it's stunning. It would absolutely be my choice on the BMW M4. What say you?
I know what you've been thinking. You've been saying to yourself, "The 2015 BMW M4 sounds awesome, but I'm gonna hold off until I can get a Gran Coupe version." I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your dream of a more practical four-door M4 will never become a reality. Darn! Darn it all!
It's got two turbos and six cylinders all in a row. It has 425 horsepower. It's lighter than the V8 powered car it replaces. But is the all-new 2015 BMW M4 really any good?
The thing about auto writers is this: we can't all be Chris Harris. (I certainly know I'm not.) Sometimes the powerful cars we test can get away from us. Case in point: two brand-spankin' new BMW M3s apparently destroyed during the recent press drive at Road America.
The 2015 BMW M3 and M4 have a new, turbocharged inline six that's more powerful and torquey than the high-revving V8 of the previous M3. But that's not the whole story. They're also lighter, tighter and just as much fun. Here are a few things I learned from driving the two Mers at a spectacular American race course.
Three, meet Four.
The 2015 BMW M3 and the misnamed 2015 BMW M4 (let's just call it the M3 Coupe) are going to be all sorts of wonderful. And now we know just how much all that wonderful will cost. This is a case where two is greater than four. Or at least more expensive.
I'd say the new BMW M3 and M4 are shaping up rather nicely, what with their 424 horsepower twin turbo inline-six engines and honest to God manual transmissions. And now some BMW racing drivers say they're great, too!
The 2015 M4 is a car BMW can't afford to screw up. The good news is that the new car not only looks fantastic, but according to the numbers, should be damn fast too. Just how we like it.
Rejoice everyone. BMW has officially dispelled the rumors that the new M3 and M4 won't have a manual transmission. The 424 horsepower turbocharged monsters will let you row the gears yourself. Happy days are still here.
Well, that didn't take long. After a grainy photo leaked onto the web last night, the full shots of the BMW M4 Coupe Concept have made their official debut. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the M take on the BMW 4-Series.
Well, it seems like it. According to this leaked image from Belgian site auto55, this is the 2015 BMW M4 'Concept' that's likely to debut during the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance this week. We will be there to confirm.
