    After an insurance nightmare on Tues/Weds/Thurs I finally picked the beast up yesterday afternoon.
    The insurance problem kinda took the shine off the anticipation but ever since the car was ours I’ve been like a kid at Christmas! I’m so excited about it! :smile::grimacing::grin:

    I went and took some pics yesterday...

    Gave the Clio a wash on Monday, couldn’t have it feeling left out with all the attention on the new arrival.

    I’ll be making a more thorough vid with first impressions on the M4, but very briefly it’s surprised me a bit with its performance. I’m used to driving what I consider to be pretty quick stuff, but still it’s more than I expected!

    I’m not sure whether it’s the accessibility of the performance, a couple of clicks of the left paddle, squeeze the throttle and whether you’re at 4K or 6k you’re fired down the road like you’ve come out of a slingshot!

    I didn’t believe the quoted power figures (444bhp) having driven it, even with new cars ability to seriously over-deliver in terms of performance relative to the raw numbers. So i went in search of some dyno results, the first two Comp Packs I came across made 444 and 446bhp, at the wheels!! Typical German conservatism! I guess that explains the performance! :flushed:

    If you think the M4 is fast, you wanna have a go in the new M5, or the F10 M5 for that matter! They're like an ICBM with wheels on mate. Lol!
    I'm lucky to drive them as part of my day job. :sunglasses:

    Tasty little weight loss though, I’ll take that!

    Hopefully a less obtrusive noise with normal use as well! :grinning:

    Certainly nothing wrong with leasing a car nowadays, makes a massive amount of sense over buying a new one outright IMO. 3/4 years and handing the keys back after?
