Thanks, nice read especially as I stopped my EVO subscription.

Not a fan of many of the latest cars but was warming to the M4 now its revised, however it seems that buying a new one is a bit bonkers still considering the lightly used options out there.

But everybody rents cars these days don't they, so I suppose they'll be all over the place still, I see a couple of C63s and M3s most days.

All about the image for some!

CT17 is probably in an R34 GT-R.

They asked me for a fairly standard car and I put them in touch with someone on FaceBook who owns the car.
I'm sure Simon can make himself known if he wants to.

Yes it's Simon's car, he has a MY15 although unsure if he's actually on here or not? I know him personally and I know he's on the B35 but don't know about here tbh?

The tyre prices are wrong. As is comparing a eurobox to Godzilla.

I Test drove a M4 (In the wet) before I bought the GTR. I was not impressed at all.

Same here. I test drove an M4 three times but just couldn't see why it was twice the price of an M140i. I know one is a full M car but it just wasn't special enough. I've got an M140i on order, which is a great car for the money and just before BMW downgrade it from 6 cylinders to 4.

I love the interior design and quality of the M4. My Dad has a fully specced one and in comparison to my CBA it's on another level. On the other hand as a car to drive and have fun in, I'd choose the GTR all day.

I'd like a go in a tuned M4 to see how much improvement is made.

Give Litchfield's a call. Looks they're currently rebuilding their M4 development car with new mods and bigger turbos.

I don't think it will matter how much BHP they can add it will still try and kill you the first damp corner. Until I move to California im sticking with the GTR

Having driven a GTR I just wouldn't own a big power rwd car - particularly on the UK wet roads. I am very interested in the transition to awd and hope the next m4 comes like that. Know the new m5 is awd so there's a fairly good bet that might be my next car (bit more family friendly).
