    Heard the old 6.2L C63 today.. sad that the noise has changed (for the worst) with the new turbo V8.

    Upcoming C63 will be 4 cyclinder..

    Will be a sad day when all cars will be electric.

    The BMW is a M4. Awesome car...

    Yep I hear you mate, UK ban on sale of new fossil fuel powered cars comes into effect in 2030. I’m sure we’ll do something stupid like that not long after. A sad day that will be indeed.

    I think it’ll just make the fleet of fossil fuel cars more one more expensive as they’ll be sought after. The infrastructure and battery technology is just not there yet, imagine trying to do a road trip Sydney to Melbourne, Brisbane, etc. 2-3 40 mins charges on the way, now try doing that on a long weekend. Think of the wait for a charging point LOL. Talk about regression...

    Ahhh an M4, my bad! Beautiful car my other car is a c63 grocery getter...
    I had a 2015 X5 40d for a few years, that was a beast, I can only imagine how much of a beast the M4 would be.

    thanks mate, i totally agree. the two main reasons I bought it are for the noise that it makes and for the noise it makes...

    just joking, second reason is I know that fossil fuels won't be allowed for ever so I plan on making the most of it now...

    thanks mate, I went from the e92 m3 to the m4 and its a totally different animal. I love the low down torque of the m4 but I miss the m3 sound hence why the c63 has just filled its place...

    I still wish I'd kept the e92 really...

    I had already ordered a new head unit for it as I can't live without apple carplay these days so I set about fitting this when I got the car home...



    it was really packaged and arrived within about 4 days...



    also super easy to fit and it works well. I didn't expect it to be that big and there was another size up but I'm glad a didn't choose that as I was contemplating it. the finish is nice and it looks oem to me...

    next on the list was to fix the wheel rash which is a pet hate of mine. rear two were perfect, the front nearside was totalled and front offside not too bad but I got them both done anyway...



    I had 4 new continental max contacts fitted at the same time...



    I gave the front two to the wheel refurb place to fit...



    and cleaned up the rear two wheel before I drove it to a tyre shop to get them installed plus a wheel alignment...

    then back on to the interior, I didn't like the shiny steering wheel which was also quite sun damaged on the top...



    so I got it refurbished too...



    I also swapped out the cabin filter which is another job I like to do on new to me car as you never know when it was done last...
