I recently read a review from Pistonheads.com on the BMW 4-Series, and I thought that I would share a quick summary with you.

The review starts off a little harsh asking, "how on earth a company like BMW can fashion something so bloody dull from ingredients such as 306 hp, rear-wheel drive and stiffer body shell than a 3-Series." The engine does how power, but it pales in contrast to the M135i.

Everything on the BMW 4-Series is a little firmer, more accurate and better supported than in its predecessor model. The car sits 10mm lower to the ground, and the seat sits 9mm lower. The electric presentation arm, which puts your seat belt on for you, tends to act like it is drunk sometimes though.

This car isn't really meant for the track, but if that is you r cup of tea, you can always buy some of the M Performance parts to sup up your ride.

Of course it's not meant for the track.

If you want something for the track get the M4.

And of course it's not like the M135i.

Look at the weight difference..

This time around the 4 series main focus is to be smooth and classy. If you wanted more like always the m sport trim is there and if you want more then the M4 will quench your thirst on the track real good.

Exactly you can't just buy a sub model of the M4 and expect that to be the best or think it has the capabilities to do somewhat the same. It just doesn't work that way. If your a track junkie the 4 series might just not be for you. If you have deep pockets then get your self the M4 and have no complaints. You will be too busy with a smile.

Did you guys forget that this is a luxury coupe. If you want to add in the word "sport" you will have to pay the price to getting the supporting modifications.

I'd rather start off with a smooth ride for daily driving anyways. Come on now who is going to take their 4 series coupe to the track and if you do how often? You won't be seeing these too much at the track. It will be different for the M4 though.
