What’s this superb looking vehicle? It’s the BMW M4 Competition, the two-door twin-sister to the M3 Competition that TG’s other Ollie drove back in February and judged ‘borderline transformative, the car the M3 always should have been.’ High praise. So, different Ollie, and different car (the M4 Comp uses exactly the same upgrades but fitted in the lower, slightly stiffer body of the 4 Series that accounts for 80 per cent of M3/M4 sales). Same result? Depends how you viewed the standard car, I suppose… Well, I’m firmly in the camp Ollie namechecked in his M3 drive, who thought the standard car was ‘a bit wild, just a touch too lairy’. Which is a polite way of saying it’s downright murderous in the wet or cold and will try to swap ends during a third-fourth gearchange in a dead straight line on the M25. I speak from experience.
