What is it?

It is the successor to the legendary BMW M3 Coupe, BMW’s mid-sized sports-coupe blockbuster.

How much does it cost?

$75,000 before any extras. Aim about $85,000 and you’ll get what you want as you want.

What is great about it?

It is fast, turns-in razor sharp, looks great and is one of the best handling cars, ever.

What is not that great?

The exhaust note.

Why should I buy it?

Because you take performance very seriously, but want a car that can handle the power like a champ.

Why should I not buy it?

If you are looking for sheer straight line speed only. Or a screaming exhaust.

It is better than:

2015 Mercedes C 63 AMG, 2015 Audi S4

Also consider:

Adding track day insurance to your policy. You’ll need it.

The Bird says
 

The BMW M4 is razor sharp and quick thanks to its torque. Hard to see it trail behind any competitor.
