Arrow M4 spotted in UK - rolling videos

So I was cruising to work this morning, minding my own business, feeling good that my car was shining in the sun and all..when suddenly I see a 4-series in my mirror in Austin Yellow. Thinking “hey, I swear there should be no 4-series in that colour yet…surely that’s not an M4?!”

Whipped out my phone immediately and started taking photos as I realised that it really was an AY M4 approaching! Changed to video mode and took some very rushed clips as it passed me. The driver then realised that I was doing this and pulled in past me and slowed down to let me pass. So I dipped behind him for more shots!

Not in a video, the driver (an older looking man who may be high up in BMW or something) looked pretty angry as he looked right at me from my left. I smiled and gave him the thumbs-up and he cracked a smile and slowed further to ensure that I go past.

My conclusion: I hated the colour since the original renders many months back. After seeing it in the sun today, I no longer hate it. It looks great. As for the car, I’ve seen quite a few 4-series in various colours now but this thing was something else. So much presence - looked very butch and aggressive.

Here are the videos I managed to take, I was in such a rush (whilst trying to drive safely, of course) that I didn’t even think to rotate the camera into landscape. Fail on that part - but at least they give a good real-life view of the car on the roll. 1440p resolution available - remember to switch quality mode!

Enjoy

FYI you're driving on the wrong side of the road. Safety first.

Unlike the E9x generation, I much prefer the overall look of the sedan over the coupe in the newer ones. The rear end of F32/82 just looks way to bloated...
