I agree with you except on this point of the exhaust. Note that BMW has made upclass changes to the brake calipers on the new M3/M4 both in design/performance and in appearance. This puts them more in-line with other performance cars competing in this class and above. The exhaust, as is, is still subpar (and low class) for a such a great performance car. A great M3/M4 shouldn't have it's exhaust looking rusty shortly after purchase even if it isn't rusting itself nor should it hang so low and look so big and ugly. Kick it up a notch BMW M, this is world class performance car!!!
