    Congrats on the M4.

    Fantastic car.

    Can't tell but is the car auto or manual?

    Covid car prices are funny, seems like many used cars are a lot more expensive.

    Great buying.

    I was looking at a MX5 ND at the start of the year, then Covid happen so held off on it. Now prices are higher! lol

    My GTI is DSG, looking forward to go back yo manual.

    Modern manual M cars are hard to come by.

    Covid has played havoc with used car prices.

    One day, I'll get a M2 Competition in manual. I predict it will be a future classic like the E46 M3 manual.

    In the not so distance, you won't be able to buy a performance BMW with RWD, manual and is petrol powered.

    Due to the horsepower wars, they will be all AWD and auto. Even the non full M model- M340i xDrive has stunning 0-100 performance, partly due to AWD and automatic transmission.

    test fit shows it clears the brakes well which i was a bit nervous about from an 18" wheel...



    i slightly modified an oem bmw jack by adding a box section to fit inside the jacking points plus a ratchet adapter to wind up and down...

    Hello ...I am curious to know why you added the box section to the jack ....did the top of the OEM jack not fit into jacking point ?

    decided to show some love to the M4 recently...



    not much fun getting this stuff off and all the time nervous about scratching the paint...



    eventually all off...



    not to everyones taste but I think it adds a bit more colour...

    as I'm enjoying the m4 again I decided to fit the apple CarPlay unit I've had sitting in my cupboard for over 2 years, no joke...



    It all went pretty easy apart from one of these white slide clips pinging off in to the abyss...



    just leaving this here so I can remember what model unit I have if I need it in future...



    it works so well, kicking myself I didn't install it years ago...



    also replaced the cabin filter while I had the glovebox removed...
