M Portraits #6.Interview with Instagrammer nick.f82m.

In our M Portraits’ series, we feature M fans from all over the world – true to the motto: ‘M Town is not a place to be found on a map; M Town embodies true passion for high-performance cars’.

This self-confessed M enthusiast is known for driving a very special BMW M4 Coupé (Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 10.0 - 9.3; CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 227 - 211) – and it’s not just his circle of friends that know about it: his Instagram account has nearly 18,000 followers.

BMW M Magazine: There are several M models on your Instagram profile can you tell us a little bit about them and why you chose them?

How did the choice of vehicle and colour come about?

My M3 E46 was the main reason for why I developed such love and passion for BMW M. I chose the M4 F82 in Yas Marina Blue because I love the colour – it’s unique and it stands out from all other vehicles on the road. The M4 has the perfect amount of sportiness and luxury, all while pushing an amazing amount of power that makes it truly breath-taking! Also, I love how aggressive the front and rear end look!

Which camera do you prefer to shoot with?

I actually don’t have a camera – my friends are the ones who take all the pictures and I love working with every single one of them! I enjoy working with different photographers because each one has their own perspective for shots, favourite locations and unique editing style.

Which photo editing apps do you prefer and why?

I personally enjoy using apps on my phone, such as Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. I love using these apps because they are easy to navigate, they include all the tools I need and they don’t degrade the resolution of the photos.

How else do you get involved in the M community and how important is it for you to interact with other M fans?

I like to get involved in the M community through social media sites such as Instagram and Facebook, and even through car shows that occasionally happen here in the Bay Area. I think it’s important to interact with other M fans and car enthusiasts because that’s how I’ve met all the amazing people and photographers I know today.

What does a perfect day with your BMW M look like?


A perfect day with a BMW M involves my M4 and a long, wide, open road where I can enjoy the Ultimate Driving Machine! The feeling you get when you accelerate and the power from under the hood you experience while behind the wheel is like no other.

  • The models illustrated include optional equipment.

    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model. 

    The values are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.] 

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification. 

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at https://www.dat.de/angebote/verlagsprodukte/leitfaden-kraftstoffverbrauch.html.

    All vehicles, equipment, combination possibilities and varieties shown here are examples and can differ in your country. In no way do they constitute a binding offer by the BMW M GmbH.
