    Re: M3 and M4

    Funny that the now 3 years old base 991 with 75HP less is faster than the brand new M4. Would be interesting to see a GT3 on that beautiful track. What a sea view!

    It (991) weighs 400lbs less so I'm not sure the HP difference would factor in at all. The 911 has the better chassis and its lighter weight is a definite advantage, and it shows. I guess you get something for the extra $30K. Smiley


    Re: M3 and M4

    I picked up my M3 earlier this week.  Haven't driven it much but first impressions are good. Interestingly I also find it to be less noisy than the M4 that I drove before I picked up my car. Less "boomy" inside if that makes sense. 


    Re: M3 and M4

    Great Wayne, congratulations, looks like a great car. Did you see Nicks latest video on his new M4?

     

     


    Re: M3 and M4

    Congratts Wayne - give us some pictures!!!

    Love that color! Didn't know the M3 also has the carbon roof. Such a shame that they do not offer a 4wd, makes it useless as a all year family car here in Switzerland..

    Re: M3 and M4

    Awesome. 


    Re: M3 and M4

    Re: M3 and M4

    Thank you guys. As for the bike, it's funny that you guys mentioned Monster and Streetfighter, because they were my two bikes that preceded this one! No, this isn't either of those. This is a MV Agusta Brutale. 

    Derder, given where I live a bigger garage isn't an option unless I have money to burn haha. I'm pretty lucky to have a garage in my own house in fringe of the CBD. Having said that I would love to have the other cars all in the same spot too. Maybe one day I will move to surburbia and build a huge underground garage.

    Great video from Harris on the M3.

    Re: M3 and M4

    Thanks. I've just watched it. It's funny watching this video because I feel like he's taking the words out of my mouth! Very sharp front end, playful rear end, lovely engine and throttle response. Even his setting of comfort for steering and suspension, and the midpoint sport for throttle is exactly how I've set mine up for the road! If only I can do videos as well as him. :)


    Re: M3 and M4

    M3 and C63 is currently the most practical daily user car at the moment.  light weight/ good size/ powerful...  Was considering getting Macan Turbo for daily car, but its not as practical as M3....

    Domination by the 911. 80hp down and with manual gearbox. WTF! heart How much did BMW pay to stage such a silly comparison? angryThe M4 won on rear seats and more features (deduct 12 points from the BMW and you get the sports car score instead of family car score).

    Come on, the M4 is much faster even compared to a 991s ;-)

    Re: M3 and M4

    Test drove an M3 the other day and I didn't like it that much.  Accurate but lifeless steering and very jittery ride (even in the softest setting)  made progress a constant fight, rather than easily exploitable. I don't think the throttle response helped because the first part of travel is lifeless and then suddenly it comes on strong.   The engine is a bit one dimensional (actually a bit boring) with masses of torque but no top end crescendo to hang on for and a stupid sound.  It was fast though.  Where a good car shrinks around you, this felt massive on B roads and apart from the acceleration and grip had nothing really to enjoy.  The Alpina B3/D3 are much better resolved for road use.

    Yes of course Smiley

    The M4 is for sure a nice car from the BMW Familysport division, but it does need the CSL treatment before I am interested. Any inside news on a M4 CSL?

    The latest I heard is no.

    The car is 'CSL' as it is. It has so many lightweight components so it's a bit difficult to save weight, unless you remove all accessories and insulation.
    Maybe save 60 kgs ? 
    I can only wish they would make a hardcore version with proper suspension, seats etc (Brakes are sorted now !).
    Let's say < 1400kgs but I seriously doubt it !

    When they spoke about it a year ago they were telling us less than 1500kgs and 7.40ish at the Ring.
    I see today that was science fiction.

    I think it's a fantastic all around sports coupe, better than the M3 E92 but not as exciting as the E46 M3 was.

    Very well summarised! The E46 had a very special feel to it. Or we are just getting old and sentimental Smiley

    It would love to see a 'GT3' type M4. Stripped down and hardcore. That would be lovely! Smiley
