Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.

Yes, the 2021 BMW M4 carries some… unique styling notes that generate buzz on both sides of the aisle.

But by laser-focusing on something so trivial, you might gloss over an important point: The M4 is really, really, really good.

Better than BMW's ubiquitous sports coupe has been in years, in fact, no matter what they call it.

The BMW M4 possesses so much character for a performance coupe that it's hard to even look at anything else.

Competitors like the Mercedes-AMG C63 and Audi RS5 are a little long in the tooth and due for replacements.

Meanwhile, the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV is only available as a sedan, and it's a little harsh for daily use.

That puts the M4 in quite the sweet spot, offering incredible performance without forgetting that day-to-day life shouldn't be a punishment.

You'll get used to the front end, I promise.
