It fit snugly, but it fit, leaving room for a matching bag right next to it, if needed, and then some. It's a sweet-shifting, hard-charging, road-gripping delight that leaves plenty of room for an M edition. It's entirely fair to say that performance for the 4-Series is about on par with what you'll find in the 2015 3-Series -- albeit without the diesel, hybrid, or lower-power 320i versions.
