The title of this post should be "I can't live WITHOUT my M4" which is how I've felt after one beautiful short month of ownership (2016 M4 Champagne Quartz). Except for the first car I ever owned at...

New M4- question about Xpel

After 3 sequential 7-series, I gave in to impulse and finally bought a driver's car: a 2016 M4 in Champagne Quartz with beige leather. It's gorgeous, and I got an extended first date by picking it...

I, too, just got my car back and they did everything except the timing chain and the battery. No gift bag worth $50. No loaner of equal value (got a 320 which left me with a backache!). So far...
