Re-Delivery after 5 1/2 weeks

Yesterday I picked up my 2015 Alpine White M4 after dropping off on December 9th with 29 miles. It took 5 1/2 weeks for re-delivery. The vehicle came back with all the things I have left in like the triangle, firstaid kit and manuals in the glove compartment. Also, my rear plate was in the trunk. I drove it for 1.5 hours from West Palm Beach to Miami. I have owned 2 335i,4 E92 M3s and 1 435i, I can say the F82 surpassed my expectations. Better technology, better seats, more confortable ride and better HUD. I miss the sound of the V8 but I can get used to the sound of this too. Actually, I prefer this better since I can enjoy the music better on the HK. Performance comparison after 1200 miles service. I drove it in D with the default setting for confort, I found it more civilized than the E92, a softer ride in confort. That's all I can say so far. Today I did the interior detail cleaning the cockpit and conditioning the leather seats. Tomorrow clay and Menzerna Power Lock since the car has no swirls after inspection. No need to polish. Overall I like it better than the E92 but I miss the V8 sound. For street driving I like having the torque. Glad to be back in the M family.

All that way and only 29 miles?
No Salzburg or extended stay in Como?
No mandatory picture in front of the castle?

fast!

That's a great re-delivery time; ours was 40 days last summer, best of my 3 EDs, but yours was even a little faster faster. Enjoy!

Just ordered black/black M4 and am curious about Powerlock product. Can you tell me more about your experience with it? Thanks.

No, due to winter tires regulations and only 9 days in Munich I didn't drive the car this time. This is my 8th European Delivery, I have done one every year since 2006 and I have traveled all over Europe.

I have every option except lighting package and carbon brakes. I can't disclose my price but I have been doing business with Braman Motorcars in West Palm Beach and my CA is John Weltzein.

I like the color combo. Can you add some interior shots?
