Give me the M4 Comp with the GTPE front end grafted on and I’m good ?. I couldn’t look at the M4 front if I owned it, and I’m not exaggerating.

Seriously, I’m disgusted with BMW’s pandering to the Chinese market and it’s affinity for monstrous grilles. Just horrible. Just eat the cost and have a Chinese market specific grille and let the rest of us enjoy our front ends.

Well they tried to be somewhat objective to give people the option to debate online.

It’s not even a real article, just clickbait to get people talking. No need to tell them it’s an absurd comparison, that’s why they posted it.
They would have been better off comparing the X3 M to the GTPE if they wanted to do this.

The answer to their question is “yes”. ? Those are tools for two very different jobs.

No, because X3M vs GTPE would actually be a normal comparison. In fact more than a few people here mentioned cross shopping the two.

Haven’t heard a single person mention the M4 here.

Yup, the only people legitimately interested in the M4 and cross-shopping a Ford were looking at the GT350 (RIP).

The Mach-E is my 1st non-BMW in nearly 20 years. I couldn't agree more about the oversized kidney grills.

If I preferred the beemer m4 that’s what I would have bought!
How could they compare these two cars! Duhh….they must have meant this question to be asked to non-owners.

I don’t like the bmw dual oversized grills either. What they fail to realize is a lot of Mach e owners have owned higher end cars like the Porsches, Beemers, and chose the mustang mme because it’s the best ecar out right now. Price certainly is not why we chose it.

I think if you call it a “beemer” they won’t let you buy one anyways. ?

I would have bought an M4 instead of my GTPE but the BMW dealership wanted 10k over MSRP (total of 100k) for the one they had on their lot.

Agreed; I knew better but I read the article anyway. I have no idea why they would compare these two cars. Completely different experiences and these cars aren't even competing against each other. I saw the @OutofSpecKyle review of the M440i, and it looks like a fantastic car, except it doesn't do a good job of holding onto the key fob when left of the roof :). If I was still in the market for an ICE vehicle, I'd be all over that car.

I had the m3/m4 down as an alternative due to manual transmission :) and similar ball park price had the GTPE not lived up to my commuting & grocery getting requirements and wanting an EV, but local dealers all had stupid mark ups and most being competition trim so very few manuals :( so even if the GTPE was not what I wanted and I instead wanted a true performance vehicle I may waited until the ADM had died down next year however at that point I would have probably gone i4 m50, as had it been a guarantee that I could have got an i4 m50 by the end of this year I would have walked away from the GTPE even with it meeting my requirements and got that in its place.
