Analog gauges, small car, good looks, good power, decent weight, DCT, RWD. A winning formula and I wish they ran with it more.

Why PDK in GT4? Couldn't get manual car or prefer auto now after the manual OG M2?

On the U.K. configurator you can choose which tyre ...but I heard they CUP2 Connect were not shopping just yet.

OP will let us know, just speculating.

The difference in suspension OGM2 vs M2CS is really night and day !!

OGM2; harsh, too stiff, bumping, non compliant, especially while driving slow/inner-city driving. Sometimes annoyingly bad. The whole interior shook up sometimes.

M2CS; comfort setting, very very compliant suspension, no harshness what so ever, just he way it should be.
It's damping/suspension character is nearly on par with my previous 981 Cayman GTS PASM, the Porsche is still better, but for BMW understanding this is the best suspension I ever had compared to all my previous BMW`s

Once you get some more seat time, would be great to hear more thoughts on the CS vs OG.


Nearly 700 km total now;

Comparisons M2OG vs M2CS;

1 Engine revs far more freely, faster, smoother, effortless

2 While still running in, its obvious the car is much faster

3 CCB have a strong, directe bite to it, immediate presence, it is instant clear what their job is, they leave no doubt to their potential what so ever

4 Dials/readability is just superb, so much better also compared to modern Digital Dash BMW`s

5 Suspension on the highest BMW level ever to me

6 Road presence; German; ÜBERHOLPRESTIGE is max

It is not bigger than OGM2, but its thick indeed.


I do like it more than the Porsche steering wheels; far too thin !

When ordering M2CS you can spec either Michelin Cup2 or PSS, your choice.

PSS is an awesome road tire, and better in poor weather conditions.

+1 !

I do like the smallest M BMW, as I do like the smallest GT Porsche i.e. GT4

The smaller the better.

Analog gauges as In CS are just the best, I dislike the DigiDash in modern BMW`s, IMHO it is a total ergonomically disaster, overflow on information which is nor strictly useful nor necessary. BMW always stood for form follows function, for ergonomically being the best, but here it's a major let down to me.

Manual is top, meaning shifter, but the gearing is still to long.

PDK has better ratios.

After my 981 Cayman GTS PDK I was flabbergasted how good that PDK was, second to none (and I'm really a MT guy)

I knew instantly I wanted a GT4 with PDK, the 981 GT4 was only a MT, if PDK had been available I had bought one.

The 718 GT4 is coming withe PDK, EU Porsche announing probably 10-2020

Beautiful car!
I live in California but am Dutch. Schitterend op, genieten! En straks ook van de GT4.

I just traded in my 991 911 for a M3 zcp due to family expansion! You have best of both worlds!

Wait until you experience PDK-S. In GT cars even better...
