M Portraits #5.Interview with Instagramer darkknightm4.

Since 2013, Jake has been driving a BMW M. He was immediately taken with the high-quality sports car. You can follow his passion for BMW M on Instagram where the US-American – known as darkknightm4 – uploads pictures of his BWM M4Coupé (Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 9.1; CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 209). 143,000 subscribers follow him. We talked with him about his passion.

 

Jake, what started your passion for BMW M?
Jake: I’ve been a total BMW M fan since 2013. That’s when I bought a BMW M3 E93 in Mineral white, and I was head over heels. With the new M3, my Instagram account also started growing (laughs).

 

But you don’t drive the E93 any longer, right?
No. In March 2015, I switched to a BMW M4 Coupé – in Sapphire black metallic. The colour just fits so well with the BMW M4 Coupé.

Jake, known as darkknightm4 on Instagram, and his BMW M4 Coupé in Sapphire black metallic.

BMW M is so well-known throughout the community for being such a fun car to own, no matter what number comes after it.

And you can see that on your Instagram page...
Yes, the Instagram page shows my passion for BMW M very well. I think that my pictures, texts and responses to all of the other BMW M fans on Instagram really show how much I like and support BMW M. I spend a lot of my free time with M. In the beginning, it was just a small M4 Coupé page I started on Instagram, which has grown in a way I never could have expected. But I don’t express my passion in the digital world exclusively.

 

How else are you involved with BMW M?
My love for the brand has also led me to local car events, shows and tours. There I could meet interesting people, some of them have become my best friends. And even when I am not in my M4 or taking a break from social media, I wear BMW M shirts. And last but not least – what kind of lock screen would it be if it doesn’t display a picture of a BMW M?

What in particular do you think makes the brand M so special?
The M brand simply offers the best cars with the best performance. BMW M is so well-known throughout the community for being such a fun car to own, no matter what number comes after it. You really hear this when you talk with other M fans. There is definitely a strong and unspoken bond we all have no matter where we are in the world, and I think that bond is something special about the M brand in and of itself.


Many thanks for a chance to talk with you Jake.
