Videos: F82 M4 Coupes in Istanbul (exhaust, group of 10, track photoshoot)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So I'm in Istanbul (location of the M3/M4 M Power Experience 2014) on vacation, and heading up to the Blue Mosque this morning I came across an M4. From what I noticed it had performance brakes, DCT, and Nav. In speaking to the driver (a BMW employee) they were there to make a commercial. They were heading into a courtyard that had 2 armed soldiers outside (ultimate riff-raff protection) to film. The driver was cool enough to rev it up a bit, and we chatted. He made the comment that this is "lighter" but that I'd be more happy with my V8 exhaust note compared to this.

After hearing it in person, I gotta say it sounds a bit "tinny" yet raspy. It has a bit of an untuned raw sound, perhaps due to the powerband and where it makes the most power.

Below are the pics and video.





Admin edit:
Added more videos from Istanbul.

I gotta say, that's a lot better than a lot of the clips I've heard. Honestly, if the car sounds as good as a 335i, I won't hate it, it just sounds significantly worse in most videos!

Also, wish we were getting the all black wheels. I hate the two tone we're getting.

Agreed, thx for vid. Maybe it sounds different because all the others had pre-production exhausts. To go along with the pre-production all black wheels

It could sound like a screaming chipmunk, as long as its pushing 500+nm of torque, I could care less.

A bit better than the last one. However there shouldn't be an MPE for this car since it really should be standard.

First of all, I love your slogan. You have my seal of approval.

I have no more complaints about sound, and a Hornet is on it's way to be mine.

This was probably my first non OT post ever. I expect a medal.

Hey I'm not shopping because of you, my jeans fit now just fine so take your poison with you! One summer in the land of BMW, and I will never touch that stuff again. Still though, the creative usage of that rocked our worlds. Best thing ever!

I'm just about positive I'm going to have the dealer powder coat them. Not a fan of the 2 tone. The silver are just OK. But the black/alloys I do not like.

Will be on the Track in Istanbul on the 14th of May driving these beauties and will report back my experience!
I'm sure i'll meet a few of my fellow Master M salesman there that are on these boards!
Top 80 M salesman worldwide.
Should be an exciting trip!

I looked carefully at the pictures and think those are the wheels coming to USA. They looked blacked out in some shots, but two-tone in others. Do we know for certain that BMW is offering different wheels combos for different markets?

Overall Im not that impressed with any of the wheel options available. The last gen rims looked great, wish they would have just improved on those.
