And yet they don’t do so with any kind of enthusiasm – it really sounds like more of a chore from the XCar reviewer’s side. He competently points out all that there is to like about the BMW M4, including the looks, interior, the power, the efficiency and badge, yet the words don’t seem to be fueled by passion or enthusiasm.
This car may have stopped evoking those feelings through its much duller-sounding engine than the old V8…
The M4 is a technical achievement that’s highly commendable, but according to this review (and others), it suffers from some of the foibles that plague all modern cars, particularly the feeling of having been overly-sanitized to be very appealing to a wide array of buyers and also comply with ever-more-stringent regulations.
You want to like the M4, and you easily can, yet you can much more easily love the old E90/E92 M3, a more-style analog machine that, in 10 years’ time, we’ll be looking back at for answers, asking where it all went wrong.
