Will there be a BMW M4 CS? Apparently, there is a Club Sport version of the BMWM4 after it was sighted in California doing a shoot for a new commercial ad, courtesy of a member of the Bimmer Post forum.
People may be wondering if this is the same vehicle that was unveiled nearly a year ago in Spain. No, it isn’t. Yes, BMW did unfurl a BMW M4 CS in Spain but it wasn’t what we expected. As members of the Bimmer Post forum pointed out, the Spanish BMW M4 CS was only a project of BMW Spain, and it was not created by BMW M GmbH. The guys from the forum also noted that Spanish BMW M4 CS was basically a BMW M4 with the Competition Package (M4 CP) with a massive carbon fiber wing on the rear. Sorry to burst your M4 CS bubbles.
As far as we know, BMW only produced only 803 units of the M4 GTS, which is considered as its meanest and fastest sports car. Essentially a power-up evolution of the M4 coupe, the BMW M4 GTS is one of BMW’s most track-ready cars, thanks to the M technologies applied on its powertrain, chassis and lightweight construction. Sporting an iconic CS moniker, the M4 CS is basically a toned down and “civilized” version of the GTS, serving as a middle child between the standard M4 and the M4 GTS. This is basically why the M4 CS should possess a number of features and elements from the M4 GTS. However, as a civilized version, the M4 CS won’t be as powerful and as extreme as the M4 GTS.Read the entire article New BMW M4 CS is spotted in a commercial shoot with Augusto Farfus in California
Some customers are difficult to satisfy. There have been instances when customers would opt for a more powerful version of a vehicle. Thus, it would be quite logical to say that one of the primary motives why some customers prefer the BMW M4 over a typical BMW 4 Series Coupe is the power of the car. There is certainly a huge gap in the power levels between the M4 and a regular 4 Series. Customers with a taste for performance are likely to grab the BMW M4.
German tuner Cam-Shaft, however, could also say that there is quite a difference between the potential of its tuned BMW M4 and the power of a regular M4. Cam-Shaft is offering a program that could raise further the power levels of the current M4. As it is, the M4 is powered by a 6.3-liter inline-six engine that is lighter by around 10 kilograms than its predecessors like the V8, although it features similar power levels.
This inline-six is capable of delivering up to 425 hp (431 PS) of max output available between 5,500 rpm and 7,300 rpm, as well as 406 lb.-ft. (550 Nm) of peak torque available between 1,850 rpm and 5,500 rpm. At this level, the BMW could dash from zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds via a standard six-speed manual transmission (3.9 seconds with M-DCT transmission).Read the entire article Cam-Shaft tweaks BMW M4’s power levels
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.Read the entire article BMW 4 Series undergoes mid-cycle facelift for the 2017 model year
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.Read the entire article We can't take our eyes off this BMW M4 with a Sakhir Orange finish and Bronze Gold wheels
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.Read the entire article BMW released official photos of its M4 GT4 race car
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.Read the entire article Production has ended for BMW M4 GTS, 803rd unit is the last to roll out of assembly plant
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.Read the entire article Carbonfiber Dynamics boosts output of BMW M4R to 700hp
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.Read the entire article DTM Titleholder Marco Wittmann is given the keys to his very own BMW M4 Coupe
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.Read the entire article BMW M4 GTS is even more stunning with Yas Marina blue wrap, big rear wing
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.Read the entire article BMW M4 in Austin Yellow looks amazing with Brixton R10D forged alloy wheels
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.Read the entire article IND Distribution showcases its own BMW M2 and M4 builds at 2016 SEMA Show

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.

A new version of the classy but ferocious middle child of the M4 series is set for release; unfortunately, it will only be available in Spain. The BMW M4 series is an irony within itself because it can be a laidback and comfortable cruiser for everyday use while it can also be a vicious opponent in the race track. There are two variants of the M4, the Standard M4 and the M4 GTS.
While there is an unlimited supply of the $65,000 Standard M4, there are only 700 units of the M4 GTS which is sold for $161,972. See the price gap between the two? Well, for many, the GTS being a limited-edition track beast is not enough reason for the outrageous disparity between the prices. So how does BMW respond to this ridiculous disparity? Simple. Put something in between the standard M4 and the GTS. And what do we get? Of course a version somewhere in between the sleek and chill standard M4 and the ferocious track beast that is the GTS.
Just recently, BMW revealed the newest M4 family member. Sporting an iconic CS or “Club Sport” moniker, the M4 CS is basically a toned down and “civilized” version of the GTS. Serving as a middle child of the standard M4 and the GTS, the M4 CS will be sold for €132,900 or approximately $150,000.Read the entire article New BMW M4 CS (Clubsport) to be released only in Spain
For a number of decades, BMW M Division has had a practice of creating special models using the mid-range series of the BMW M. These models were mainly designed to display better performance and have high-level driving dynamics.
The most current example of this tradition is the BMW M4 GTS. With only 700 units manufactured, the M4 GTS has combined fuel consumption at 8.5 1/100 km with combined CO2 emissions coming in at 199 g/km. To make sure that the public is able to see for themselves the outstanding performance qualities exhibited by this elite sports car, the brand chose a rather remarkable way of doing so. Specifically, for the 2016 season, the BMW M4 GTS will be the official DTM safety car.
To earn the privilege of being the lead car of what is considered the most popular international touring car series, the BMW M4 GTS has to meet high demands. As specified under DTM rules, the safety car has to be designed and even adapted to high-performance driving especially on the tracks.Read the entire article BMW M4 GTS is named official DTM safety car for 2016 season
Starting spring this year, the BMW M3 Sedan, M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible will be available with a special Competition Package from BMW M GmbH that does not only make them more powerful but also more responsive to handle.
In fact, all three bodies with the Competition Package will have their power outputs increased to 444 hp for a more dynamic performance. With this amount of power, the BMW M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe -- with optional 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M-DCT) – could accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds.
Sans the Competition Package, their 0-60 mph time is 3.9 seconds. On the other hand, the BMW M4 Convertible could sprint from nil to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds. Sans the Competition Package, the BMW M4 Convertible could achieve 60 mph from standstill in 4.2 seconds. BMW M3 Sedan, M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible -- with the standard 6-speed manual transmission -- also achieves a 0-60 mph time that is 0.1 seconds faster than without the Competition Package.Read the entire article Competition Package to be available on BMW M3 Sedan, M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible

BMW M GmbH has done it again with the new M4 GTS. The company has succeeded in creating a new design that takes the M4 Coupe up to a new threshold in its performance. Clearly designed with intentions to conquer the race track, the M4 GTS clocked in an impressive 7.28 minutes lap time on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.
This record time shows car enthusiasts exactly what they can expect the M4 GTS to deliver. Surprisingly, the car is safe enough for use on public roads, making it a very versatile addition to the BMW M line. However, not everyone can have a BMW M4 GTS.
This is because the model is a limited edition model launched to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the BMW M3. Thus, only 700 units will be produced by BMW’s plants.Read the entire article BMW launches limited edition M4 GTS with extra features for sport and casual driving
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.
