M3/M4 Track Experience in Japan (Fuji Speedway)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Got a chance to go to M3/4 track experience hosted by BMW Japan.

Each participant was able to test drive M4 and M6 on Fuji Speedway 2 laps each led by pace cars. Then, we got a ride in track Taxi (M3). I got stack in traffic when I was driving in the M4 but I reached 160mph on the main straigh in the M6.

Then the taxi was just awesome experience. It was great combination of truely balanced car and professional driving. I cant imagine myself pushing like that...lol

This version of M3/4 is def. the best among its own history. I was not a big fun of E90/92 but F80/82 is now more sportier, sharper, and more exiciting. It reminds me of E46 M3 that I used to own.

Anyway, here are some photos I took.

Well, obviously M6 was heavier and cornering was not as sharp as M3/4. However, on the straight line...oh man...that car pulls. It is way faster than M3/4.

But...you have to hit break earlier, you have to struggle cornering a bit...If you are not going to track or twisty mountain roads, def. M6 gives you better comfortableness with abnormal power.

You have an impressive photo gallery. Congratulation for shooting such great photos.
Of course, the ones when a BMW is the main subject look better :P

Gorgeous pics! I'm in love with Austin Yellow. The last shot of the sedan looks great too.

Thanks for sharing.

Best pic yet of a SS M4 with black wheels

I love your current ride. Sadly, the S4/RS4 Avant are not available here in Canada .

These pics come closer than most to capturing how stunning the car is in person. Very nice eye and post processing.

Whoa, why you holding out on us friend? The silverstone guys are short on good pics like this with the black wheels.

excellent pictures! That Leica camera! OP, do you have more pictures of the Silverstone M4? There has been very few pictures of Silverstone M3 or M4 so far as it has been a rare color on the new M cars. Thanks.
