Definitely want to hear more about the differences once you have some seat time in the M4. Currently deciding between a used M4 or used M5 for a new daily. I've heard the M4 rides pretty stiff. Unfortunately "ride" is very subjective. Interested to see what you think compared to the M5 (beyond the first impression).

Congrats on the new car! Love the color btw.

I think you'll be
dissappointed on long trips. The M4 seats are great for 1hr...after that you'll be wishing you were in your M5

Congrats on the purchase. I've been thinking about getting into a M3 or M4 from my 2013 M5. I've recently added H&R springs and rims. Man the H&R springs properly balance the M5 and feel this is how it should come from the company.

Speaking of seats-i noticed they are cloth and not leather. Comfortable?

Interesting swap OP. I sold my 16 M4 comp about 6 months ago just couldnt ever get over the sound and the numb steering. Also as others have stated the comp pack seats are rough on any trip over an hour.

I have an M2C on order but im highly concerned the sound will make me not like it and im looking at alternatives.

Crazy enough I started looking at F10 M5 CP yesterday and they are about 15k less than the M2 so I am considering going that route instead.

How would you comparing steering feel of the M5 vs the M4? The M4 is a pretty big car itself. When i went back to an e92 it felt tiny and its not small either.

I was torn between an M3 CP and an M5. I drove both an opted for the M5. No doubt it's the bigger car having spent 4 years in an F30 but the M5 drives like a 520 when I want it to be docile and a cruise missile when I want to chase the horizon. It's effortless and with much less drama than its smaller 6 cylinder siblings but the Boise from the V8 is orchestral. I love the rumble. Living in the UK, we don't have many big block V8 cars that make that kind of noise. I love the uprated seats, the sunroof, soft close doors, B&O sound - things I couldn't have on an M3/M4. But I can see the attraction for the M3/4 if you prefer more on the limit driving - given the size and mass of the F10.
My advice is drive both before you choose as it's very much personal choice. Though neither is a bad car in any way.

I have an M5 and my wife a C63.

I hear you on the nimble comments. The smaller cars feel awesome to hammer around town but you cant make then feel like a lounge chair. I dont want to have a car in attack mode 100% of the time.

Maybe im getting old - 38 lol
