Pretty strong endorsement, I always respect these guys' opinion given their talent (at least 3 of the 4).

Impressive! Great marks. These guys are pretty tough on their reviews and very rarely do they score anything above 8.

I usually like their reviews, but I don't see the point in drifting the car for a lot of the video without really talking about the car. I.e Chris Harris does that better.

I think they wanted to have more fun instead of talking about the car, that sums it up.

Was this a joke?

All they did was drift the car, burn out the tires and then tell us that the car drove well on the road under normal driving conditions.

What the hell?

Guess the M4 will drift even better, cant wait to find out.

While I love Chris Harris' reviews, which have a ton of detail and the guy is quite the loquacious one, you have to understand the 5th Gear approach and the backgrounds of the reviewers. They will not give a high review to a car they do not believe is enthusiast (or whatever purpose the car is for, i.e. practicality i.e. SUVs) worthy. Needell, Plato, and Vicki all have racing backgrounds and a couple of seasons ago Needell was on a segment where he actually was racing alongside on a Lamborghini's Euro racing team and getting faster laps than the other team drivers. This test of the M4 was really more about entertainment/hooliganism (admittedly not that informative), but the reviewers giving 9s to a car is a rarity and actually means something if you look at the history of their ratings and the type of cars that get 9s. So I would view their ratings as a very strong endorsement of the 4 series. BTW, they ADORE (and continue to adore) the E9x M3 so will be very interesting to hear their opinions on the new M3/4 in the near future.

Old Tiff is an amazing driver, I love watching him drive. Probably my favourite driver to watch, Chris is a close second. When these guys say something is good I don't question it.

I agree they should have showed bit more than just drifting, but Come on guys they won't give it a good score if it doesn't drive well and if it can drift like that its obviously gonna drive well .
