BMW 4 Series undergoes mid-cycle facelift for the 2017 model year

As expected, four years after the current generation of the BMW 4 Series was introduced in 2013 with the BMW 4 Series Coupe, the German premium carmaker is implementing a Life Cycle Impulse.

This is also known as a mid-cycle refresh. BMW gave the 3 Series an FCI in 2016, and this year it is the turn of the 4 Series.

What is good about this mid-cycle update is the fact that BMW is refreshing not only one model of the 4 Series, but all of them. BMW has revised the 4 Series Coupe, 4 Series Convertible, 4 Series Gran Coupe and the M4 for the 2017 model year.

We can't take our eyes off this BMW M4 with a Sakhir Orange finish and Bronze Gold wheels

It may not look very sporty but this new BMW M4 (F82) wrapped in Sakhir Orange exterior color with golden rims sure is dynamic and elegantly gorgeous.

Sakhir Orange is one of several colors included in the standard palette for the M4. In fact, it is also available for other offerings of the BMW M family, like the M3, the M5 and the M6. Since its introduction, Sakhir Orange has been among the favorite finishes for the M4, whether stock or laden with aftermarket parts. This shade of orange has always given the BMW M4 an elegantly standout appearance whether on a standstill or on the move.

Such is the case of this new BMW M4. Perhaps after looking at other M4 units wrapped in Sakhir Orange and dressed in various aftermarket parts, the owner of this M4 got some ideas running through his or her head on how to proceed with the transformation of his/her own sports coupe. All its owner must do is to get the right aftermarket parts, install them and provide the necessary modifications.

At first glance, it is fairly easy to tell that this BMW M4’s appearance is different from a typical M4. It sits lower than a typical M4, has different tailpipes and wheels, and sports some aerodynamic enhancements. This BMW M4 features a suspension that has been lowered to make the high performance coupe sit closer to the ground – a configuration that gives this car a sporting stance on the road. Not only that, this gives this M4 a lower center of gravity, making it more stable when cruising at high speeds.

This little bit of sportiness is continued on the rear with the addition of a rear decklid spoiler and a carbon fiber rear diffuser. Completing the changes made on the rear of this BMW M4 is a pair of dual tailpipes finished in black.

Of course, aftermarket modifications wouldn’t be complete without changing the wheels of the BMW M4. This particular M4 gets a set of Velos XX wheels with five pentagon-like spokes. These wheels – measuring 20 inches x 8.5 inches at the front and 20 inches x10.5 inches at the rear – are finished in Bronze Gold color, perfectly complementing Sakhir Orange exterior tone of the BMW M4.

It was indicated that this BMW M4 was tuned for higher performance, so we could assume that its 3.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline engine that was built specifically to power the new M3 and M4. This powerplant delivers 425 hp (317 kW) of max output and 550 Nm (410 lb.-ft.) of peak torque, allowing the M4 to sprint from zero to 62mph (100km/h) in just 4.1 seconds and reach an electronically governed top speed of 155mph (250km/h).

BMW released official photos of its M4 GT4 race car

BMW recently held its year-end celebration in Munich, Germany. The same motorsport event had on display the upcoming BMW M4 GT4. It was then wrapped in camouflage to conceal its design but an official image was also released afterwards.

BMW’s new racecar will take part in the “24 Hours of Dubai “ slated on January 2018. It will be tested extensively starting next month in preparation for its official racing debut. Deliveries are expected to begin around third or fourth quarter next year.

The M4 GT4 Coupe would be the next in line to BMW’s M235i Racing model. The entry-level racecar was first introduced in 2014 and has at least 170 examples built.

According BMW Motorsport, the M4 GT4 will take its cues from the M6 GT3 for its pedal box, brakes and seat design. Several automakers have their own versions of the GT4 racer. Aside from BMW M4 and Mercedes-AMG GT, there’s a track ready Porsche Cayman, McLaren 570S, Ford Mustang and Aston Martin Vantage GT4.

BMW also said that the new racecar has been designed to comply with various GT4 competitions held in North America, Asia and Europe. To make it more cost efficient, BMW has retained the production version’s 3.0-litre twin turbo engine.

In fact, the specs of the production model are almost similar to the GT4. The race-ready M4 GT4 will use the same carbon fibre hood as those of BMW’s M4 GTS special edition model.

BMW’s latest racer will be fitted with high performance rear wing, splitter and exhaust to deliver optimum downforce. Carbon fibre will also be used to build its doors to reduce more weight. Since its first year, the M6 GT3 has brought BMW many reasons to celebrate. Jens Marquardt, BMW’s Motorsport Director looks forward in placing its newest model in the upcoming competitions.

He added that the car would take part in two races that will go along with the Motorsport’s comprehensive test program. By next year, the prototype model will be developed and tested to ensure that the new BMW M4 GT4 delivers optimum performance and driveability.

This will include many hours of test in Dubai’s racetracks, which will commence its 24-hour race this January. But since its still in the early stages of its development, we won’t see it compete until 2018. Nevertheless, BMW’s expert team of developers will ensure it is ready to perform when that day arrives.

Production has ended for BMW M4 GTS, 803rd unit is the last to roll out of assembly plant

BMW has officially ended the production cycle for what is considered as its meanest and fastest sports car – the BMW M4 GTS. Basically a power-up evolution of the BMW M4 coupe, the BMW M4 GTS is one of the premium carmaker’s most track-ready cars, thanks to M technologies applied on its powertrain, chassis and lightweight construction front.

In an announcement in April 2016, BMW said it was launching the BMW M4 GTS limited to 700 units to celebrate the 30th year of the BMW M3. So, many believed that the final number of produced BMW M4 GTS available to customers around the world would be no more than 700 units. However, in the latest development, it turns out that the German company has produced a total of 830 units, and that includes 21 pre-production examples, six press vehicles and 803 customer cars. This information is derived from the actual VINs (vehicle identification number) of the produced BMW M4 GTS.

These 803 examples of the BMW M4 GTS include 278 left-hand drive units for Europe, 120 right-hand drive cars for Europe and 405 examples bound for North America (United States and Canada). The last GTS that came out from BMW’s assembly facilities – on November 29, 2016 -- is a model for North America, wrapped in Black Sapphire exterior color. Originally, BMW had planned for 700 units of the BMW M4 GTS, with 300 cars to the US, 80 examples to Germany and 50 models to Canada. But with the final count tagged at 803 units, the German premium carmaker has sure overshoot its production target for the BMW M4 GTS. This might have something to do with the law of supply and demand.

So, what can we expect from the BMW M4 GTS? Frank van Meel, chief executive of BMW M GmbH, described the BMW M4 GTS as a sports car for the race track that could deliver top-end dynamics and inspirational performance. He noted that the BMW M4 GTS demonstrates what is possible with a road-legal car. At the core of the BMW M4 GTS is 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line turbo engine -- with water injection technology – that could provide 500 hp (368 kW) of max output and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of peak torque, allowing this mean machine to sprint from nil to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds and reach a governed top speed of 305 km/h (189.5 mph).

Moreover, the BMW M4 GTS is a result of intelligent lightweight construction, with extensive use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic in several components. It also features a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT), exclusive M light-alloy wheels in star-spoke 666 M Styling wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, three-way M coilover suspension, and lightweight M carbon ceramic brakes.

Although BMW did overshoot its production targets for the BMW M4 GTS, 803 units remains a limited number, that means that the carmaker’s meanest and fastest car is still a limited special edition.

For those who already own a high capable car, changes are often unnecessary. However it appears that for Carbonfiber Dynamics (CFD), there will always be room for improvement especially with the BMW M4R. The name is not the only new thing as the model indeed underwent many upgrades. One could say that the BMW M4R is a good example of a car with not only carbon-fiber sculpted parts but also contains high-end aftermarket components.

In terms of design, the M4R has a carbon-fiber suit made in Japan and is composed of a diffuser, Varis side skirts, MTC Design bonnet, and front bumper sporting a 3D design.

A rear wing has been added which can help provide that needed downforce especially when running at high speeds. Rounding off the design package is the Revowrap GT4-style wrapping and the 56°NORD carbon roof box. The former of which has been tested running at speeds going as high as 300 km/h.

Going to the power unit under the hood, CFD made sure to put in a pair of TTE 6XX Turbochargers with boost pressure of 2.3 bars. It also has Burger Motorsport JB4 tune and a methanol injection allowing the engine to have output of at least 700 hp with peak torque of 800 Nm.

With this, acceleration from 100 km/h all the way to 200 km/h is possible is merely 5.9 seconds. This is not all as the engine has been tuned to allow it to have different power levels available by the simple press of a button. Excellent performance is ensured as well with the Akrapovic Downpipe and the Eventuri Carbon/Kevlar Intake.

Of course, it goes without saying that even with all this power, nothing matters if there is no control. Providing support to the performance is the Bilstein B16 EDC suspension system. There is also the Mov’it-signed braking system that has 6-piston calipers with 392 mm discs on the front while the rear has 4-piston calipers with the 380 mm discs. Then there is also the Dodson Motorsport clutch that can aid with managing that extra grunt.

The M4 is part of BMW’s 4 Series and serves as a replacement for the M3 Convertible and the M3 Coupe. Some of the upgrades involved in the 4 Series when compared to the 3 Series include having a twin turbocharged engine that was responsive and powerful.

Braking system, suspension, and handling were all improved with the body experiencing improvements on aerodynamics. Both the interior and the exterior are highlighted with the tri-color M badge. Weight has been reduced as well, partly due to the extensive use of parts with carbon fiber like the roof. The chassis meanwhile was made stiffer.

Those familiar with racing know that Marco Wittmann’s win during the 2016 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters held last May was noteworthy as it was his second title in four seasons. In the middle of November, particularly the 18th, it was revealed that Wittmann was in Munich to receive his very own BMW M4 Coupe that was fitted with the complete BMW M Performance Parts package.

Prior to being given his Java Green model, Wittmann was first given a detailed picture of the different parts equipped inside. He was even given the chance to experience what it meant to be behind the wheel of this excellent model on the same day.

With regards to improvement done, Wittmann revealed that his top choices include the spoiler in the rear as well as the diffuser made of carbon. Also included are the attachments on the side panel and the grille slats in the front that come in high-gloss black. The interior is just as excellent with the pedal pads and the gear selector trim. With the door sills being lighted with LEDs, the interior becomes a bit more special. Overall, the M Performance accessory lineup was made with motorsport knowledge in mind. In addition, it matches the respective models and can be used to meet personal needs.

According to Wittmann, the new model not only has an excellent appearance but drives really well. He added that the color is excellent as it manages to suit him considering that he loves to drive in a vehicle that is easily noticeable. The package has managed to change what is already an excellent M4 Coupe and transform it to a model that is both distinct and more valuable, he continued. Wittmann said further he is sure to enjoy driving in this new car and this is all thanks to the BMW, BMW M Performance Parts, and BMW M GmbH.

BMW has recently revealed it is complementing the package with retrofit options for its BMW 5 Series. In addition, the brand will also be offering a model-specific package not only for the M models but eventually for all of its models. Retrofitted components include those for the drivetrain, aerodynamics, cockpit, and suspension. All of them were made by BMW M GmbH in partnership with BMW Motorsport. As such, it comes as no surprise that the driving dynamics is better with the sporty appearance of the exterior being highlighted.

While BMW models fitted with the M Performance Parts are indeed athletic, the model driven by Wittmann, which was the Red Bull BMW M4 DTM, is even sportier. The brand has been using the models based on the M4 Coupe for the DTM going back 2014. Wittmann’s second win at the DTM was possible in merely 18 seasons. At 26 years old, Wittmann is the youngest driver to win the DTM twice. In addition, he is also the first driver from BMW to achieve two titles. His first win was in 2014 using a BMW M4 DTM.

Automakers have been religiously upgrading current models and experimenting on various combinations to formulate a perfect vehicle for customers. Then there are the aftermarket tuning companies ready to save the day just in case we want something more than what’s in store.

The BMW M4 for instance has been subject to various extensive aftermarket alterations, from visual to performance-oriented upgrades. There are a few satisfying customizations but a particular M4 has been drawing a lot of attention lately.

M4 that we are referring to is a tuned BMW M4 GTS. Aside from the water injection system developed by Bosch, this particular M4 is exceptional because of its pleasing appearance. On top of its already special Yas Marina blue paintjob, this particular M4 comes with a special matte wrap. It effectively draws attention by maintaining its eye-catching standard color but with enough hint of spice to bring out improved road presence which sets it apart from any ordinary M4 GTS – if there is an “ordinary” M4 GTS, by the way.

Aside from the special wrapping, this M4 also received some exterior upgrades in the likes of a large rear wing courtesy of RevoZport and a rear diffuser and side skirts care of PSM Dynamic. To give it more oomph, this M4 is also fitted with a set of all-black HRE R101 wheels for an even more intimidating look. Moreover, it has a two-way adjustable suspension thanks to KW and Dinan sway bars and control arms.

The upgrades do not end there though as its powertrain has also received a bit of tinkering. This M4 has received VF Engineering tuning and an exhaust system courtesy of Akrapovic. Its makers haven’t released any power figures yet but we’re pretty sure its twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six engine has enough power to match its already intimidating looks.

BMW M4 is already awesome as it is, with a 425-horsepower twin-turbo inline-six engine in either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive. Plus there’s the Competition package adding around 14 horsepower, making a total of 444 horsepower. The M4 GTS however is more powerful with 493 horsepower coming from its 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six engine and water injection system; however, it is only available as a coupe with an automatic drivetrain while the regular versions come with a convertible version.

Rest assured, any of these versions perform as well as its legendary M ancestors. With the Competition package, the M4 coupe can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds while the convertible version has an acceleration time of 4.3 seconds; the M4 GTS on the other hand, goes from a standstill to 62 mph in only 3.8 seconds.

The M4 is already a strong contender coming fresh from the Bavarian automaker’s production plants, what more with an upgrade such as this one. Hopefully this version doesn’t end up like that tuned Mustang GTT at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. In general, we think this M4’s wicked.

Just like in the fashion industry, we need to get a dose of “eye candy” on the road from the latest automotive concepts and designs of the season. That includes the newest set of wheels to ever hit the “runways”. It only goes to show how you can get more creative with your car to make those long road trips less boring. There are many ways to do this. You can change the colour of your car or add a load of car accessories to match and yet, nothing can beat the feeling of getting a new set wheels.

Ask any BMW car collector what their preferred set of wheels are and he or she would probably mention this brand. After all, Brixton Forged Wheels are “tailor-made, never boring and always original”. Traditional wheel companies are often set by limits but not in the case of Brixton.

The Austin Yellow BMW M4 is the latest to come with the famous Brixton Forged wheels. This particular set of wheels is from the R10D Targa Series. Brixton’s selection of wheels is made perfectly for the BMW’s athletic stance. Since the M models are known for its driving dynamics (particularly the M4’s and M3’s), the Brixton Forged R10D Targa Series has found another perfect match.

The Austin Yellow BMW M4 for one is equipped with 10.0x20 and 11.5x20 R10D Targa Series for its front and rear wheels. Brixton’s concave and 10-spoke design coming exclusively from the Targa Series emphasises the M4’s rear-wheel drive and driving performance.

Besides, the forged 6061-T6-aluminium 3-piece alloy wheels are truly designed to perform. The hidden hardware and backpad pocketing are made with the same super lightweight materials. Each Brixton R10D wheel is impeccably painted in 120-grit brush Solar Rain colour finish complementing the BMW M4’s Austin Yellow stock body paint.

Brixton Forged wheels are hand crafted and made inside the company’s manufacturing facility in Los Angeles. Right from the very start, the company has preferred to make their products locally to ensure quality as well as to better manage their manufacturing operations. In return, Brixton’s talented engineering team oversees all the wheels from the first up to the final stages.

Next time you think it’s time to take on the road and leave a lasting new impression, why not consider getting a new set of wheels? Although we have to admit, seeing the Austin Yellow BMW M4 with Brixton Forged R10D wheels is equally satisfying.

Chicago-based tuning shop IND Distribution would not let its expertise in tuning BMW cars go unnoticed as it joins the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Leveraging its knowledge of BMW cars, IND is showcasing two elegantly stunning projects based on the new BMW M2 and the new BMW M4 Coupe.

According to IND, its M2 build was meant to complement the M4 Coupe while presenting some of its newly developed parts and components. In addition, the SEMA projects are also IND’s tribute to BMW’s factory-built racing program. In these new projects for the 2016 SEMA Show, IND teamed up with BBS and Rays Engineering/Advan to ensure that its versions of the new M2 and M4 Coupe successfully become a reality. Likewise, IND tapped the services of Brembo, Eventuri, Eisenmann, KW and RKP while infusing its own solutions to come with the most desirable setup for the SEMA show-bound M2 and M4 Coupe.

The M2 build makes use of the newly designed GT kit from Brembo. This kit enhances the braking system’s thermal capacity by employing a more rigid caliper, larger swept pad area and thicker brake disc. The build also features an air intake system from Eventuri that provides the signature Eventuri intake roar. This intake system is complemented by a prototype M2 exhaust system from Eisenmann that is designed to give off different audio tracks when the valve is opened or closed.

KW, on the other hand, supplied prototype ClubSport coilovers for the M2 build while RKP provided a number of exterior details not found on a typical M2. For instance, RKP furnished an M2-sized roof panel similar to the original M4 panel. The M2 build also comes with several visual tweaks like a carbon splitter and diffuser as well as rear wing. A trunk spoiler proportioned to the roof is also sourced from RKP. RKP also provided the M2 with GTS style front lip spoiler. IND’s M2 build rides on Advan RS-DF wheels (with size of 18 x 9.5) wrapped elegantly in Falken’s 275/35/18 tires.

Inside, IND’s M2 build features a rear closeout upholstered in Alcantara fabric, thereby separating the passenger area from the trunk. This build also features a Motorsport roll bar finished in Alpine White. Interestingly, the interior of IND’s M2 build is laden with details found in the BMW Performance catalog. In addition, this M2 build is specified with an M4 GTS steering wheel as well as shift paddles in Alpine White.

Earlier this year, IND built its own version of the M4 as part of its 10th anniversary celebration. Considered as one of the most heavily modified M4 models, IND’s M4 build has been further modified in preparation for the 2016 SEMA show.

For instance, the standard Yas Marina paint has been replaced with purple and the M4 build now rides on silver-colored, aftermarket wheels. IND’s M4 build now features carbon front and rear bumpers and new carbon splitter. Its Brembo brake calipers and discs have been upgraded and it now comes with KW coilover suspension. A full roll cage and fixed rear wing are also added.

BMW is not letting the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas pass by without presenting a number of special things that would leave visitors in awe. BMW’s booth (Booth 40247) inside the lower South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center will display show vehicles featuring an extensive range of new M Performance Parts and Original BMW Accessories.

For the second time in three years, German driver Marco Wittmann of BMW Team RMG reached the summit in the DTM Drivers’ Championship. Even though Wittmann only secured a fourth place finish in the final race this year at Hockenheimring, it was already enough to earn 206 points and take the crown. Second overall is Hockenheimring winner Edoardo Mortara of Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline.

To celebrate this success, BMW is releasing a special edition model of the BMW M4 – the BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition 2016. This special edition will boast of a number of enhancements over the series production BMW M4, including those with regards to its power, driver and suspension technologies.

After the official announcement, BMW introduced at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas the M4 Concept Iconic Lights. Wearing a Cool White metallic coat, the M4 Concept Iconic Lights arrives with a new interpretation of the well-known BMW twin round headlights.

Thanks to the fine blue strips inside the lights, the laser technology can be easily identified and the BMW Laserlight promises to set new standards in terms of beam range and brightness.

The headlights not only consume 30 percent less energy, but the parallel light beam is 10 times more intense than produced by halogen, xenon or LED light sources. In addition, the BMW Laserlight has a beam range of up to 600 metres, more than twice that of conventional headlights.

The integration with the navigation system is even more interesting as it allows the proactive Adaptive Headlight control system to illuminate corners before the steering wheel is turned. Furthermore, the Night Vision system’s Dynamic Light Spot function can detect people and animals from a distance of up to 100 metres.

Also, the “High Power Laser” diodes are able to project information directly onto the road in front of the vehicle. At the rear, there are new taillights featuring OLED technology and by activating the OLED segments individually it is possible to create different rear lightning effects.

Even more interesting is the fact that in the Sport mode a different-shaped light pattern can be used by activating only some of the OLED segments.

For those who still don’t know, the BMW M4 Coupe is powered by a 3.0-liter high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology that produces 431 hp and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine is able to push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. [source: BMW]

The BMW X4 was not the only vehicle to receive BMW M Performance Parts as the Bavarian carmaker also unveiled a customized M4 Coupe that will be seen at the 2014 Essen Motor Show. The new BMW M Performance Parts will be available for the M3 Sedan, M4 Coupe as well as the M4 Convertible and customers who want to customize their vehicles can get new side sections for the front bumper, a new front lip spoiler made from polyurethane (PUR), a carbon rear air diffuser as well as a new trunk lip spoiler.

Morever, there are new side skirts and a rear spoiler for the BMW M3 Sedan, as well as tri-colour side decals with “M Performance” lettering for the Sedan, Coupe and Convertible. For the interior, the manufacturer offers a BMW M Performance steering wheel wrapped in Alcatara, carbon trim and Race display.

Thanks to the M Performance silencer system, the sound of the engine is enhanced, while the new tailpipe embellishers in either titanium or carbon improve the looks.

There are no details regarding any engine improvements and this means we find the standard 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder in-line engine that generates 431 hp and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine pushes the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, while top speed is limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. With the M Driver’s Package, top speed is increased to 280 km/h or 174 mph. The M4 Convertible accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds, while top speed is limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.

The new pair of BMWs, the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe, have been designed to strikingly express their superb performance and handling characteristics. As Karim Habib, Head of Design BMW Automobiles, states, the outstanding capabilities of the two new models are meant to be evident from the outset, as they both have visually arresting exterior designs that take the BMW M aesthetic to a higher level of expression characterised by dynamic determination and emotional appeal.

Powerfully expressive BMW M face

When viewed from the front, the new M3 Sedan and new M4 Coupe are set apart primarily by their defined contours with an impression of assertive depth. A face of evocative expressivity is common to the two models. Signature design elements immediately identify both cars as being part of the BMW M stable.

These include the twin headlamps (available optionally in LED technology) with a modernised look, the twin-bar kidney grille with black painted grille bars (a design element congruent with the style of the exclusive BMW M double-spoke wheels with the M logo), and the sportive front apron featuring three large air intakes that facilitate air cooling for the high-performance engine and brakes.

Another BMW M exclusive design feature seen is the power dome on the hood, which provides space for the intercooler while suggesting the potency of the M TwinPower Turbo engine. Also, the eye-catching wing mirrors with suggested twin-stalk mounts are designed for aerodynamic efficiency.

The flanks: low-slung and dynamic profile

The side view of both the BMW M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe continue carrying the dynamic character evident from their front ends. The typical BMW silhouette defined by a long bonnet, long wheelbase, short front overhang and set-back cabin are accentuated by the trademark M design elements. As Habib mentions, the cars’ powerful wheel arches and striking planar facets highlight their sportive spirits.

Included among the new cars’ details that characterise dynamism are the renewed M gills, which not only contribute style but also functionally contribute to enhancing aerodynamics by optimising air flow around the wheel arches through their integrated Air Breathers. These assist the front apron Air Curtains in this regard.

The contoured CFRP roofline and its dark roof colour provides the new M3 Sedan and new M4 Coupe with a more compact and low-slung profile because the body-coloured roof pillars visually seem to be the cars’ highest point from the ground. The graceful roofline provides an even more luxurious appeal to complement the overall sportive aura. The line seems to accelerate along its smooth downward slope to the rear, resulting in greater downforce for improved streamlining while also making the rear end look more robust.

The BMW X4 was not the only vehicle to receive BMW M Performance Parts as the Bavarian carmaker also unveiled a customized M4 Coupe that will be seen at the 2014 Essen Motor Show. The new BMW M Performance Parts will be available for the M3 Sedan, M4 Coupe as well as the M4 Convertible and customers who want to customize their vehicles can get new side sections for the front bumper, a new front lip spoiler made from polyurethane (PUR), a carbon rear air diffuser as well as a new trunk lip spoiler.
