BMW M3 and M4: which is best?
M Division has been in the laboratory cooking up turbos. Ollie Marriage investigates…

Weirdly, if the M4 has a weak point on the circuit, it’s the same ceramic brakes that I praised on the road. It’s nothing to do with their power, and they don’t fade, but the ABS is more active than it needs to be, the pedal travel longer.
Is there a detectable difference between coupe and saloon? At the risk of searching out pointlessly small differences in order to make myself look more chin-scratchingly knowledgeable, yes, I think there is. I drove the M3 on track too because, well, you would, wouldn’t you? It felt a bit more flighty over crests, and the merest fraction looser at the back. Put it down to the marginally higher centre of gravity, the tiny rearward weight shift. Or perhaps I’m searching for differentiation where none exists.
