Is it true what Bmw tries to makes us believe? Are the M version cars of the Munich based brand really the ultimate driving machines? We took the M4 competition for a quick spin to the south of France and we were pretty suprised!
It was the first time since I bought the car last year in August that I drove it that far in 1 time, 1250km to be exact, one way that is.
As it being very fuel efficient to be an M-powered car this was the perfect car to drive to Monaco! With a tank of 55L and a consumption of 11L/100km I was pretty happy. I can see many people thinking that I’m driving the car like a granny but the French police (actually pretty scared to open my mailbox these days as I’m expecting some speeding tickets) and Margaux can prove you wrong haha!
Driving it for almost all the time in ‘sport plus’ mode makes the car just so much fun! The sound, the handling, the feeling in the steering wheel… just so much fun!
Another thing I was suprised with is the trunk space, I packed all my camera gear and Margaux decided to bring down half of her dressing room. As you could see the trunk was well filled but we were good to go! Booth space: A+! To be honest, it’s not that much smaller of the trunk of my 7 series.
Driving from Belgium which was rainy and cold through Switserland which suprised us with some melting snow. It wasn’t a problem for the handling of the M4 together with the sturdy Michelin tires. Thank god!
And yes, this little girl was pretty happy as you could see when she could drive the car! Totally not scary at all! (smell my sarcasm). No actually it was much fun to see her handling the car like a real pro car driver! One of the reasons I like her so much!
And what’s better then a fresh wash of the car when we arrived at the Côte d’Azur? It was pretty dirty from the road down and all of the roadkill and rain.
Nothing beats this view, my 2 ladies looking clean! By the way, these yellow Meguiar’s Drying Towels are amazing for drying a car in record time!
And how exactly can a Bmw M4 be the ultimate driving machine in a country full of supercars or just legendary cars? Monaco is known to be the country with the most supercars per square mile. Yes, read that again… These 4 beauties were parked in the underground garage where the M4 was parked at the hotel. (note: these were only a few, I could list more then 50 here from only the underground parking). It just stands out with the looks, the X-factor and the car being great on every aspect.
Driving around this magical place with the Bmw was just amazing, all these great spots to take some snaps!
With all the Porsches, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Aston Martins driving around I was pretty happy to see how much looks the M4 received from people in the street. Not that I have to compensate something with my car but it’s always fun when your car gets some attention.
And by seeing this photo, I already forgot I have a car…!
Ok… back to the car! The car! Focus Kevve! The M4 which has received some extra carbon parts, a KW suspensions coilovers and some tinted windows matched the scenery perfect. I’m thinking on switching up the wheels but I can’t figure out which ones yet.
Epic views all day long! Sign me up for another trip! This car really proved his strenghts on this trip! It really is the ultimate driving machine!
The looks of this car are just so perfect from every angle! It looks even so beautiful on a parking lot on the highway while eating some McDonald’s!
On the way back home, we stopped at the historical Reims racetrack for a proper picture! Always wanted to do that! Thanks again BMW for making such a great overall car and thanks XOTO for hooking me up with this 1/10 Limited Edition on the Avus special series! They have some more special M’s in stock if you guys are looking for something cool! Thank me later!
