I love my diamondschwarz, but I saw an M4 in this colour in Vancouver and I loved it. I would be self conscious about how attention-grabbing it is but I would still rock it all day long, looks so nice.

Congratulations, anyway. Enjoy the car.

Thanks all. I know exactly what you mean about the "attention-grabbing" piece. There were three colors to choose from given my requirement list for options, Austin Yellow, mine, or BSM. The color choice was clear to me.

Just ordered my first mod! This, after I promised to myself that I would not mod the car for at least a year...

So, redfox, what do you think of the exhaust / engine sound now that you've had it for a while?

I've only heard M4s rolling along in traffic in person, so no idea here other than from vids. Nurburgring vids seem to sound-- not surprisingly--like a sport-exhaust S54 (from E46 M3).

The bypass-mode valve in the F8x exhaust is a great feature.

To be honest... and all from the inside

At idle: the car sounds like a VW TDI

At low speeds: the car sounds like a Honda with a fart can, but then again, that's the sound of the 911 Turbo as well

At WOT above 4K RPM: the sound is pretty effing fantastic! It's not too loud, has enough lower end grunt with a splash of mechanical whine. And that pop / blurb during shifts is like a shotgun misfiring. AWESOME!

Without the exhaust by-pass on, it's pretty quiet, like driving a 328.

Yep-- that's what the ones I saw were like. Same story from vids.

Yep-- that's what they were like under slow acceleration. Turbos happen to work very well as mufflers.

Good to know-- I guess you end up holding it in gear and gunning it all the time then...

I now know the 328 (silent-ish) sound, since I grabbed one recently.


Congrats on the car once again-- from recent test results (that are likely a bit slow -- Car and Driver), it looks to be a solid beast!
