The available upgrades included exhausts, power upgrades, bodykit, limited slip differential, steering wheels and interior trims. The result is smooth and efficient power delivery, very sharp response and reduced fuel consumption and emissions. Aluminum suspension elements ensure sharper dynamics. Its unique features compared to standard include flared arches, a bonnet power bulge, four exhaust tailpipes and deeper bumpers. Weight loss was another focus with the M4 Coupe, and Bimmer did not skimp in its efforts.

Depending on the equipment, the convertible weighs 200-300 pounds more than the coupe, so accelerates with slightly less verve.
Thankfully we were already on the road and wasn't able to do that. The M4 also includes an electronically controlled , , additional bolted joints between the axle subframe and the body sills, aluminium stiffening plate and a five-link rear suspension constructed from aluminium Carbon-fibre is used for the roof, bootlid, strut brace and. The different selectable drive modes, which offer drivers a choice of preconfigured, perfectly balanced vehicle set-ups, also feature different engine sound profiles. The flanks: low-slung silhouette and dynamic lines. You can increase the cargo space to about 13. The launch models were the petrol-engined 428i and 435i, and the diesel 420d.
As per the larger , the F36 has coupé styling with a rear. The engineers need to channel the air around the car to create the best possible platform for dynamic excellence, while also ensuring the engine, powertrain and brakes receive the requisite cooling even when operating under heavy loads on the race track. The standard-specification Active M Differential at the rear axle guarantees optimum traction, while the likewise factory-fitted electromechanical M Servotronic steering with three settings delivers sporty, direct responses. Sadly the same can't be said for the Convertible, which gets a 370-litre capacity with the roof raised. The optional 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic prompts the new high-revving turbocharged engine into emotionally impressive feats. Depreciation Strong demand has helped keep M4 residuals buoyant, with our experts calculating that all versions will hold onto around 50 percent of their new value after three years. A head-up display, wireless charging and Wi-Fi hotspot, leather covered dashboard, Carbon Ceramic Brakes and an M Driver Package which includes a high performance driving class and raises the top speed to 174 mph from 155 mph and standard suspension calibration for increased comfort are also available.
However, lower the hood and the available space shrinks to 220 litres, which is less than many city cars. Click past the jump to read more on the 2015 M4. These lightweight components on the front end also help reduce the front-axle weight of the M4, bringing it closer to the optimal 50:50 weight distribution. The F33 convertible is produced in , beginning in November 2013. Would never buy from them. They were built in a twin-stalk style that not only looks mean, but it also helps reduce aerodynamic drag.
Track-ready engine oil supply system for outstanding performance. At the end of the standard warranty period, you can pay a little extra to extend the cover. The M4's two-door body isn't ideal for family use, but the doors open wide and the front seats tilt and slide forward to ease access to the rear bench.

In keeping with the character of the two models, however, the interior fulfils an even more sharply defined sporting brief.
