And that color. Where did BMW come up with that. Wonder if its called 'Pea Soup'?
No argument with the performance, but the cost is just like new high-end gear. No longer a value and way beyond the point of diminishing returns.
Agreed. As to Supercar Blondie, she is making an honest living on youtube. Have you seen her channel and the cars she has access to? She sells her videos with content on cars and of course a bit of herself injected into the mix. Judging by her subscriber and "liked" videos numbers, it works for her.

Something tells me Supercar Blondie can survive with her YT income. She owns some very expensive cars - like a Bentley/ Rolls.

Take a look at these figures for highest youtube earners. The youtube content creation is not a bad way to make a living... https://www.pocket-lint.com/apps/new...tubers-gallery

Agree, some elements are just off: very unfortunate color to show of the
premier of the M4 versions. The kidney grills and the lines that continue
into the hood are just not working for me. It gives the look of aftermarket
teenage parts added that simply don't do justice for such a statement car.

Yes, the carbon fiber everywhere is alluring, and the performance
certainly is there, but the looks are not classic to me. Those on my old
E46 M3 still hold strong. I wonder how the M4 will be looked in 15 years.

Love the green. Have they found what causes Giant Kidney Disease?

After seeing several of these 'Giant Kidney' models in several colors I have to admit that they (like the newer Lexus) look far better in real life compared to pic's of same. In fact, I find that the grill, while different from what one considers 'traditional' BMW, does not detract from the car and I could easily own one.
