A BMW M4 in Urban Green isn’t something you see every day. The same applies to an M enthusiast like David alias DSCHMDT: The 23-year old photographer and Instagrammer from Potsdam puts his cars at the forefront of his professional work and indeed gives every BMW M that he photographs a very special look. His motto: Do it with passion!

BMW M Magazine: David, you drive a BMW M4 in Urban Green. Why this striking colour?


David: Anyone who knows me knows that I love black cars. After five years of “all black”, I was looking for a colour that you only seldom see on the street to make my M4 even more special than it already is. And Urban Green in combination with the M Performance Parts in Carbon really caught my eye. I was originally inspired by a post from BMW M with an M3 Competition with Performance Parts in BMW Individual Urban Green.

“It is especially important to me to entertain and inspire the community with my content.”

What do you like best about your M automobile?


First and foremost the sporty character and the fact that it’s still suitable for everyday use. At the press of a button, the M4 turns into an uncompromising sports car – and that’s something you can’t get enough of. Pure emotion.

Unforgettable experience: BMW M5 E34.

What was the first experience with the BMW M brand that you can remember?


It was in 2012. I was 14 years old when my uncle picked me up to go for a drive in his new X5 M E70, that was the very first X5 M. Afterwards I was smitten by M – and still am today. M enthusiasm runs in my family. My uncle’s been a passionate M driver since 1992 and still raves today about his BMW M5 E34.

And your own first BMW?


My first BMW was also my very first car - a BMW 118i F20 in Black Sapphire metallic with an M Sports package. It was with this car that I began my Instagram journey as DSCHMDT in April 2015.

And what came after that?


Two years later, I wanted something with more power and switched to a BMW M140i F21 in Black Sapphire. It was very tough to part with the 118i, it was after all my very first car and I’d had so many experiences with it. But the M140i was for me the perfect upgrade – and lots of road trips, photo-shoots and masses of driving pleasure made my time with the M140i unforgettable. In the summer of 2019, I realized a dream and ordered a BMW M4 Competition, which then replaced my M140i. But the M140i will always be something very special for me. The car remains a masterpiece. The M4 is of course in a different league and at the moment I can’t imagine a car better suited to my needs. I’m really happy with it, just starting the engine every morning gives me a buzz. Pure goosebumps.

For decades, BMW M has had a very special motorsport DNA. And the unmistakeable look and sound make BMW M a unique marque. You can spot a BMW M a long way off, which I really like.

How important is it for you to share your enthusiasm for BMW M with other M fans?


The BMW and BMW M community is in its size and spirit unique on the automotive scene. I don’t create my content for myself, but for the community. So it’s all the more important for me to entertain and above all to inspire. Over time, it’s developed into a great passion. Texts like “Thanks to your pictures I’ve ordered a BMW M in Birch Green” make me very proud and give me a big boost.

“The BMW M community is in its size and spirit unique on the automotive scene.”

Which Instagram accounts that you follow?


Quite a few. For example @karl_shakur and @thecarsanova. Karl's visual language inspires me again and again and what Frederick captures with his photos is pure magic.

 

 

What constitutes a good car Instagrammer for you?


He or she should be authentic, develop their own visual style, ideally achieve their own recognisability – and the most important thing: have fun doing it.

 

 

David, thank you for talking to us!

  • 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
