Cool Finally! 2020 M4 Heritage Edition 6MT

Yesterday I had the pleasure to finally take delivery of my new 2020 Heritage Edition M4. The car is Velvet Blue with the Silverstone/Black Merino full leather.

As far as I (and my sales rep) know, this is the only Velvet Blue 6MT car.

And according to BMW Switzerland, this is the first M4 in about 1.5-2 years that was ordered with the manual. They actually checked both with me and my sales rep to see if this was a mistake in the order.

Anyway, the car is beyond beautiful and I'm absolutely speechless. No pictures can do this color justice. Depending on lighting, it never looks the same twice.

Here are some quick shots from my way to work, I'll post in this thread as I go along and get pictures taken.

Damn thatís a sexy color.
Grats on picking up one of the best looking M car series 😊

The only detail Iím not sure about is the lines on the CF roof, but that might grow on me as it looks subtle yet noticeable 😁

Any modification plans?

Such is the sad truth in Europe. Congrats and thanks for saving the manuals.



Really digging that M stripe on the roof, tbh.

No it's not to be honest... Manual is only such an important thing in US.

Back in Europe we drove manual only for years because we didn't have any good automatic back in the days! Once automatic transmission got better than manuals over the years, we switched to automatic transmission.

US is opposite... You guys started with shitty automatic and now going to manual when Automatic is top of the line...lol

The reason why I've said it was a sad truth is because I was born and raised in Europe and in fact, I still live here.

The assumed popularity of manuals in Europe is mainly due to the fact that small vehicles are much more prevalent than in the US - low cost is a very high priority in the segment and manuals are just that much cheaper. It's usually at least a thousand bucks between MT and AT. Same reason as to why the vast majority of commercial vans have small engines and a manual transmission, (meanwhile the US gets a twin-turbo V6 Transit).

But, I agree; as you said, automatics have gotten substantially better which is why the take rate of manuals in Europe has dropped significantly on the higher end of the spectrum, i.e. sports cars, premium segment, etc. American car enthusiasts seem to be more hardcore and brands listen to them, hencewhy US-only manual E6x/F1x Ms, all the Vipers, Corvettes and so forth.

83% of all 6MT F80 M3s ever built were sold in the USA! I seem to have snagged one of the few manual LCI F80 in Europe a couple years back. During the last service, dealer techs were all over the car, complimenting the choice of transmission. You just never see a clutch pedal in a new M car or a P-car these days.

Initially disliked the stripes, then softened when viewed "live", actually pretty discrete.

The ///M tri-color stripe on the roof was on the original M4 Concept car as shown during Monterey Car Week in August 2013. I attended the launch party and unveil and decided right then that this was going to be my next car. I was disappointed when the M4 went into production and it didn't have the stripe.

Note: This is NOT Austin Yellow, this color was called Aurum Gold at the time. In fact, this wasn't even an F8x chassis, the concept body was put on a 328i chassis. The windows were blacked out because there was no interior.

Love it! I almost picked up the twin here (There are a few VB 6 Spd Heritage models in the USA), but ultimately went used when the right F80 fell into my lap
