2018 BMW 4 Series is ravishing in Snapper Rocks Metallic Blue

While the 4 Series is a fine-looking car in its own right, the extra kick from this optional metallic blue paint makes it stand out from the crowd.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

The 2018 BMW 4 Series gets a few tweaks, but they'll probably go unnoticed by all but the most rabid of Bimmer fans. It's largely the same car we saw last year.

It's available with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic, in all-wheel or rear-wheel drive. Two different engine options are on tap and it is also offered as a coupe, convertible or gran coupe.

The run-flat tires are made of harder rubber and contribute to a harsher than necessary ride.

New this year are stiffer roll bars in the front and rear, resulting in a nimble little pocket rocket that tucks right into turns.

Inside the 4 Series is an all-modern design with leather and metallic highlights.

BMW's idea of luxury is a clean, modern look. Nothing is over the top in this coupe.
