I followed / was around a White M4 for quite a few miles of my journey on the motorway yesterday. When i first came across it and it came past me waiting at a roundabout, i didn't glance twice at it - because it didnt stand out immediately as anything special. For me was very uninspiring to look at from some angles and had zero road presence. Likely because of the flat arches as you point out.....

That of course in itself; may be a plus-point to some.

white for me is one of the worst colours for an M4 as it really does blend in with the 420d M sport, which you tend to see loads of in white

Absolutely bang on. Aggressive stance and body lines. M3 win all day long. And...it’s an M3.

Not done much with the M3 over the past few weeks; other than pile some miles on it

Still amazed how much of a Jekyll and Hyde the car is...

Anyhoo, sunny today, so some sun on the bonnet after a wash over.





Will get some better pics at some point.

8weeks into ownership and YMB is one of those colours that looks very different in varying light; tonight I gave mine a quick clean to remove the dust and bugs and grabbed the camera before the last of light disappeared.

Not the best of photographic excellence but always amazed at how well this motor cleans up and how sometimes the colour is matte/satin and metallic.

Glad the previous owner had some detailing sense giving the car a Gyeon coating and it fits well with my OCD as a good base to expand on - despite the 39k miles covered :thumbsup:







(bit ****ty focus on this one - needed my tripod)






ah the view seen by so many other road users...


Must get some better scenic pics from around the Malvern Hills

Saw this along with an M3 and a gorgeous M5 at Silverstone at the weekend - wife says no



They were taking big wigs / sponsors round the track in the M3 and M5 - both sounded awesome.

1st lap M3 came back with front brakes smoking, 2nd lap the were on fire as he sat there swapping passengers

Great car love it. Although not a colour I would choose but it suits the M3 to a tee. Love the interior. Let us know how you get on with the leather marking. Mine is marking in my 540 with light coloured leather. Safe driving.

Dream car!

Age 23 so probably not for a while yet. Insurance would be greater than the value of the vehicle anyway
