F80/F82/F83 M3 and M4 (2015 - Current)
F80 BMW M3 sedan, F82 BMW M4 coupe and F83 M4 convertible forum. This 5th generation M3 and all new M4 features a 3.0 liter twin turbo engine (engine code S55) 425hp and 406lbs of torque! Heavy use of light weight materials makes this generation lighter and faster then the outgoing E9x M3.

Ordered the F90 M5......

Just ordered the F90 M5 yesterday. Marina Bay Blu ext. and Aragon Brown int. (I wish BMW USA offered more interior colors like in Europe but we are stuck with only white, black, and brown). March production, May delivery. Can't wait!

While I like my '18 M3, I feel it's just too "boyish" for me. I constantly get tail-gated and side-swiped by ricers and it's getting tiresome. The ride is also way too harsh for my 50-y.o. body. I think I would've enjoyed this car more if I was 20 years younger. What I like about the new M5 is that it performs like a supercar (0-60 in 2.8 sec according to C/D!) but has that mature, understated exterior design that fits my personality more. The ride is also vastly better. Plus, with adjustable X-Drive, it'll be more usable in bad weather.

Congrats man! That is one hell of a car! Nothing comes close to X Driver an 2.8 secs 0-60 AND don't forget the added luxury inside and the awesome Bowers and Wilkins Speakers which I hope you ordered.

new M5 should be awesome. I hear they're already talking about a CP option for it, which I don't understand.

I haven't had the same experience as you with my M4 (non CP); love the ride (I'm 57) and haven't had any bad encounters, although we live in the same suburb. Will have to see what happens in the spring.

Just curious, did you check out the MB E63 AMG? Saw one on youtube (Vehicle Virgins) and it looks like an awesome car.

Yeah, I test-drove the E63S and also the new Panamera Turbo S.

The E63S is an amazing car and has a bit better interior than the M5. The AMG exhaust note is also terrific. However, a fully loaded one is almost $140K and dealers wouldn't budge one bit on price.

The Panamera Turbo S is also an incredible car with tremendous power and tech. However, I'm not a fan of the styling, and a loaded one costs over $200K!

In the end, I chose the M5 because it gives the best balance of performance, tech, luxury, and value. I also wanted to stay within the M family. My dealer also gave me a $2K discount right when I ordered which was a plus.

0-60: 2.8 sec according to latest C/D tests!......As fast as a La Ferrari, Aventador SV, and Tesla Model S 100D in Ludicrous Mode! Insane!

The only bad thing is color selection. All the exterior colors available for the F90 right now are pretty basic and somewhat boring, even the Individual choices. The only "exciting" color is Marina Bay Blu which I ordered. The limited production "First Edition" F90's have this weird matte Magenta exterior color which I saw recently at the Chicago Auto Show. I guess the subdued exterior design of the F90 isn't well-suited for flashy colors like the M3/M4's.

The interior color choices are pretty limited and bland as well......white, black, and brown.

It's pretty obvious that the demographics for this car is aimed for the slightly older crowd.

Congrats and I look forward to seeing the new M5. They sound like they will be a complete beast. I love my M3 but that new M5 is the real deal. Congrats again!

Im also looking forward to pics and your impressions when you get it. For what its worth, last year I got invited by a local dealer to a 1 day M school driving event at Thermal CA. It seemed to be a dealership / customer appreciation event (no 1k coupons or anything, it was a 1 day M school).

Anyway, while I was there I ran into a Dealer principle owner for a BMW dealership in the San Diego area. I believe they might be part of Auto Nation now, but his name is on the dealership. He was a super chill guy and was there with his wife, and some invitiees for the M event (there is a point to this story, bear with me)....

I was chatting with him, and I asked him "You know, since you can obviously have any BMW you want, which one is your favorite?" With ZERO hesitation, he said "The M5... perfect balance of luxury and speed". He went on to say that he was a bit disappointed by the steering in the current M5s, but was really really looking forward to the new one (the one you are ordering). I think you are in for a treat!

I saw the new F90 at the DC auto show last month and that car was really an eye catcher.
The one I saw was silver, black wheels and a CF roof and it was impressive to say the least.
Congrats on an excellent choice!

Just curious, were you not interested in the “first edition” or were those all spoken for? Or was there an upcharge on those?

I believe my agent said that those were all spoken for.

Also, I think they only come in matte magenta color which I'm not a fan of.

When is BMW NA allowing full Individual Manufackor orders? Then interior colors will become interesting.

Congrats!

I know what you mean about the "boy-racers" - I just bought an M3 on Saturday and last night on the way home from the office some guy in a jetta that looked like it was going to fall apart kept revving his engine; I was on Michigan avenue in downtown Chicago where there is bumper-to-bumper traffic and people everywhere.

I surprised because my previous car, a z06, I didn't get nearly the attention from the boy-racers...haha

I thought about getting the new M5 but it no longer has a manual transmission option. Picking up my M3 today and will see how it goes.
