Their new straight six-cylinder engines are improved over and form the basis of the previous generation. Two performance levels are available: in addition to a 353 kW / 480 hp variant with 6-speed manual transmission, each model will also go on sale as a competition model developing 375 kW / 510 hp and equipped with a 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic. M TwinPower Turbo technology and high-revving powertrain concept impress with performance characteristics straight from racing – without restricting the traditionally high level of everyday fitness of BMW M models. To further emphasize the DNA The new BMW M3 Sedan and the new BMW M4 Coupé will also be available in a comprehensive range of M Performance parts when the two models are launched on the market in March next year. They facilitate the advanced individualization of the striking design of vehicles and the enhancement of their dynamic driving qualities.
The range of high-quality accessories has been developed in collaboration with BMW M GmbH on the basis of the experience gained on world circuits and the extensive know-how of their motorsport specialists. The components, which have been specifically aligned with the character of the new BMW M3 Sedan and the new BMW M4 Coupé, further refine their extremely sporty appearance. In addition, for the most part, they also meet the functional requirements in terms of lightweight construction and aerodynamics – significantly improving the excellent dynamic characteristics of the two high-performance models.
Suspension and its even more closely related to motorsport.
A perfect example of how M Performance parts generally improve not only a car’s appearance but also its performance is demonstrated by the M Performance silencer system, made of titanium. The lightweight exhaust system with flap control, developed specifically for the M models and based on experience gained in motor racing, weighs around five kilograms less than the mass-produced component and also provides an even more driving experience. sporty thanks to optimized exhaust gas routing. The very moving sound, similar to that of motorsport, has been adapted to individual driving programs. The four ceramic-coated titanium tailpipes give an undeniable striking appearance.
The M Performance sports suspension has been developed and tuned on various circuits and is also directly associated with motor racing. The coilover suspension allows an infinitely variable reduction in ride height between five and twenty millimeters (recommended lowering of -10 mm compared to the base model M). With unchanged shock absorber tuning, the driver benefits from a lower center of gravity, reduced rolling motion and even higher cornering speeds. In addition to increased dynamics, the lowering also improves the sporty look.
Directly derived from BMW Motorsport long distance brake pads, M Performance sport brake pads guarantee shorter braking distances, better response characteristics and high thermal resistance. Drivers in particular who often also wish to explore the performance potential of their BMW M3 Sedan or M4 Coupé on the racetrack, will be delighted, among other things, with the vehicle’s exceptionally dynamic steering behavior when braking before a corner compared to the standard configuration. .
Carbon, a high-tech material, sharpens even more.
The high-tech carbon material is characterized by a high degree of rigidity and rigidity while being extremely light. Therefore, carbon fiber reinforced plastic is mainly used in many areas of motorsport, where the visible carbon components fascinate with the mesh structure so characteristic of this material. For this reason in particular, the M Performance exterior components exude a high-level motorsport atmosphere – and are perfectly suited to further refine the sporty look of the BMW M3 Saloon and the BMW M4 Coupé. For example, the M Performance carbon front hitch, the M Performance carbon front splitter and the M Performance Aero Flicks in carbon provide a particularly striking look. Seen from the side, the M Performance carbon breather sets an eye-catching accent and the M Performance carbon side skirt trims give the vehicle a longer appearance. At the rear, the M Performance carbon rear fins and the distinctive M Performance carbon rear spoiler add the perfect finishing touch to the vehicle’s appearance.

M Performance carbon / titanium tailpipes also offer a sporty option for customizing the standard exhaust system of the BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupé. High-performance models can be further customized with the M Performance Motorsport foiling. The decoration set contains adhesive sheets for each side in the three BMW M colors blue, red and purple and is custom designed to match the geometry of the vehicle.
