First images and details of the BMW 4 Series with M Performance upgrades have been released, giving us a taste of what to expect from the upcoming BMW M4 coupe.
Visual enhancements include 20-inch light alloy wheels; xenon/LED headlamps; black radiator grille; carbonfibre front splitter, rear spoiler and rear diffuser; and black mirror caps, side stripes and side sill foils with M inscription.
M Performance accessories extend to the BMW 4 Series’ cabin, which features a sports steering wheel with Race Display and LEDs, carbonfibre and alcantara trim, high-grade steel pedals with specially designed footrest, and exclusive floor mats.
The M Performance enhancements are available on BMW 420d, 428i and 435i grades, each benefitting from unique mechanical upgrades including engine output boosts courtesy of software tweaks and new exhaust systems.
The BMW 420d’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel increases 12kW/40Nm to 147kW/420Nm, the BMW 428i’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol up 20kW/40Nm to 200kW and 390Nm, and the BMW 435i’s 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo petrol engine up 25kW/50Nm to 250kW and 450Nm.
A limited-slip differential with a 30 per cent lock-up, sports suspension system and performance brake system with red calipers round out the M Performance parts upgrades.
BMW Australia expects the all-new 4 Series range to arrive in local showrooms around November – a few months earlier than originally anticipated – and while timing and availability is yet to be finalised it has confirmed its strong desire to offer a range of M Performance enhancements for local customers.
