When the BMW 4 Series Coupe F32 celebrates its world premiere at the IAA 2013, tuning fans will also get their money’s worth straight away: As already announced, in addition to the series 4 Series, which is available with the M Sport package, the factory tuning from BMW M Performance will also have its premiere celebrate in Frankfurt. It remains to be seen whether the BMW M4 study from Pebble Beach will also make it to Frankfurt.
So back to the BMW M Performance 4 Series: The tuning program will be sold through all BMW dealers and branches from the beginning of 2014 and, in addition to various optical and aerodynamic components, also includes three power kits for the 420d, 430d and 435i Coupe.
The performance increases, some of which are already known from other series, increase the performance in the case of the 420d to 200 hp, in the case of the 430d to 285 hp and in the case of the 435i to 340 hp. However, the Power Kits from BMW M Performance do not have a negative impact either on fuel consumption or emissions or on the factory warranty, which is still valid.
At the market launch for the BMW Performance program, there will also be silencer systems for the 428i and 435i, which are intended to give the two petrol engines a sportier sound. The optics of both exhaust systems benefit from chrome-plated tailpipe trims, carbon trims are also available for the 435i.
Those who like it seriously sporty can also get a limited-slip differential from BMW M Performance, weight-optimized forged wheels in 20 inches, more powerful brakes, and a particularly dynamically tuned chassis for the 4-series. The dynamism gained can be underlined with the help of the aerodynamic add-on parts, which range from carbon splitters for the front apron to side skirts and rear spoilers to the diffuser insert.
The interior can also be made much more dynamic with accessories from BMW M Performance and clearly differentiated from the series. The central element is the M Performance sports steering wheel, optionally with a red center mark or a race display. Depending on the customer’s requirements, there are also gear levers and handbrake handles made of carbon, interior trim strips with carbon and Alcantara surfaces and stainless steel pedals including footrests.
