Performance

The M4 is powered by a 2,979 cm3 large straight-six engine with TwinPower Turbo. It delivers 431 hp and 550 Nm at 1850-5500 rpm.

0-100 km/h does the M4 in 4.1 seconds and the top is of course limited to 250 km/h. Order a M Driver's Package, and the needle stops at 280 km/h. The elasticity of 80-120 km/h in 4th gear coming out at 3.5 seconds. That's as fast as a Porsche 996 Turbo and a Ferrari 575M Maranello F1, and even two tenths faster than a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano F1 and a Pagani Zonda S ...

The average consumption is 8.3 l/100km, with corresponding CO2 emissions of 194 g/km.
The E92 M3 accounted for 12.4 liters on average, and an emission of 290 g/km. 0-100 goes 4.6 seconds and 80-120 km/h was in 4.9 seconds.

Dimensions

The M4 Coupe measurement (without mirrors) 4,671 x 1,870 x 1,383 millimeters, the E92 M3 4615 x 1804 x 1424 mm. The new M is longer, wider and lower, but also lighter. The horsepower-to-weight ratio (DIN / EU) rises to 3.47 / 3.65. This was 3,75 / 3,93.

Has anyone ordered an F80 M3? Would love to read about driving dynamics, acceleration, sound, etc. I feel this is the legitimate replacement to the e39 m5. Can't wait to see what the competition package will entail down the road.

My new M3 was built last week and should be delivered in Texas within three weeks.
Nice, looking forward to your thoughts on the car.

geeze just came across this old thread....never did post up a review of the F80 and now I don't even have it anymore:smile
life just gets in the way I guess...my apologies...
all in all it was better than my E92 M3 from a performance perspective for sure, the FI gives you that badly missed torque you don't get in the screamer S65.....and the power band in the F80 was very linear....but it just didn't leave that impression on me like all my other M's (especially the E39 M5)...
Oh well....
