Just to elaborate on that, the problem isnít with the stone guards what I can make out as I havntbhad a stone jam and make that tin can noise.The prob is minute stones being flicked up into the wheel barrel from the outside and running around the rim until it hits the calipers and gets threw back out or jammed ,because they are so small you cannot hear anything.

M4 CSs are going to tumble in price, if this is true, as they are taking root in dealers already. I was smiling to myself the other day. I was out of town, looking at a dealers black M4 CS in the showroom, it was covered in dust, and there was a spiders web covering the rear wheel, and Mr Spider had the choice of a few flies that he had caught. Looked like the car had been there forever, and the dealer had lost interest in it

On the other hand the AUC M4ís have barely moved in price since they magically reappeared a couple of weeks ago

Presumably these new ones will have the new filter and steel propshaft. I wonder what difference it will make.

Yes, and will make them slower if you go by logic.

The M3 will not be affected as they will make no changes to the model, rather opting to end the series production early. M4, however, will take a break in series production to redesign the model.

Another review with broadly the same story as others;

Really good car

Best F8x variant produced

Too expensive at list

There are people on bimmerpost reporting March and April build F80 arriving in US / Canada with steel shafts. All seems a bit mixed up.

Who is going to buy these? Thinking they massively overestimated peoples willingness to pay for a 'special' model. Prob saw what Porsche can do with the 911 and thought BMW could do the same
