PostHeaderIcon Alpina B4 S Biturbo

When you line up the number of tuning firms who specialize on BMWs, you’ll inevitably come across Alpina, which technically started as an aftermarket company before turning into a manufacturer of its own after years of close ties with BMW. In fact, Alpina and BMW have become partners of sorts since most of the former’s models are integrated into the latter’s production lines, including the Alpina B7, which rolls from the same facility as the BMW 7 Series. That’s how far this relationship has come, and the German Ministry of Transport even recognizes it as such, designating Alpina as an automaker instead of an aftermarket specialist.

History lesson aside, Alpina is headed to the 2017 Geneva Motor Show with a number of its latest creations, one of which is the B4 S Biturbo, an interpretation of the 4 Series according to the specifications of Alpina. Like most models to come out of Alpina, the B4 S Biturbo is technically a 4 Series, and the process by which Alpina uses to create the car isn’t too different from what expert BMW tuners like AC Schnitzer do. So while it is technically an automaker, Alpina’s methods are still closer to AC Schnitzer than it is to BMW, hence the approach we’ve taken here.

The car itself is what you’d come to expect from Alpina. Like the B7 before it, the B4 S Biturbo is loaded with upgrades on all sections of the car, right down to the aerodynamic body kit and the engine upgrade that puts the B4 S Turbo’s power right up there with the BMW M4.

All told, the B4 S Biturbo is a car that’s worth our attention, not only because it’s an Alpina-badged model that’s based on the BMW 4 Series, but more importantly, because it checks off a lot of boxes on what we’d like to see the aftermarket world do to the 4 Series in the first place.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe

The BMW 4 Series just received its mid-cycle facelift for the 2018 model year, an update that also brought a similar refresh for the Gran Coupe model. Introduced in 2014, one year after the 3 Series Coupe became the 4 Series, the Gran Coupe gave BMW access to a new segment of compact four-door coupes. One of BMW’s weirdest offerings, the 4 Series Gran Coupe is essentially a four-door version of the 4 Series coupe, which in turn is based on the 3 Series sedan.

Part of a recent lineup of niche models that also includes the 3 Series GT, 5 Series GT, and 6 Series Gran Coupe, the 4 Series Gran Coupe competes against the Audi A5 Sportback. The latter was redesigned for the 2017 model year, which makes BMW’s facelift a welcomed upgrade to a vehicle that’s already three years old. The revisions are pretty much similar to the two-door 4 Series and includes minor nips and tucks on the outside, new technology, and small upgrades in the drivetrain department.

Will it be enough to keep the Gran Coupe afloat next to the new A5 Sportback? It’s too early to tell since Audi has yet to bring its four-door coupe Stateside, but the two should clash on public roads by the end of 2017. Meanwhile, let’s have a closer look at what the updated 4 Series Gran Coupe has to offer in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 4 Series Coupe

BMW introduced the 4 Series Coupe back in January of 2013 at the Detroit Auto Show. At the time, this compact executive two-door was slated as a replacement for the outgoing 3 Series Coupe, given the brand’s decision to split the model line into two separate iterations, with the 3 taking up four-door duty, and the 4 going two-door. While the 4 Series comes with an interior and exterior that’s similar to the current sixth-gen F30 3 Series, the 4 Series is also outfitted with a longer, wider body, and marketed as a sportier alternative. Initially offered exclusively as the F32 coupe, the 4 Series gained the F33 two-door convertible and F36 Gran Coupe five-door liftback body styles a year later. So far, the model has sold well, moving roughly 400,000 units worldwide since its launch. Most of those sales have been in the U.S., with the U.K. and Germany also scooping up their respective fair shares. Now, the Bavarians have decided to give the 4 Series an update, and the Coupe variant gains new styling and tweaked suspension.

The rest of the package is more or less unchanged from the 2017 model year, with a ton of opportunities on the table for customization of the interior and exterior, as well as a variety of drivetrain and powertrain options (especially for those customers located across the pond).

“The maxim guiding the BMW 4 Series model update was ‘stick to the proven formula but add extra richness to the cars’ character’,” says Domagoj Dukec, Head of Exterior Design at BMW Automobiles.

And why not? With sales up, it makes sense to stay hands off with the thing, especially when you consider a complete overhaul is imminent with the arrival of the next-gen 4 Series in a just a few years’ time

But what about the 2018 model year? Is it worth a look, or should you wait for the second generation? Read on to find out all the specifics.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Has Honed the 4 Series to Perfection With Some Serious Updates

Prior to 2012, the 3 Series included the sedan, coupe, and convertible body styles, but when BMW introduced the F30/F31-generation 3 Series, it decided to follow Audi’s footsteps and separate the 3 Series sedan from the coupe and cabriolet and began producing those body styles under the 4 Series name. With the 4 Series Coupe and Cabriolet models being introduced for the 2014 model year, it might be a little surprising to see that BMW has already given the baby of the BMW family a facelift, but for the 2017 model year (2018 model year for the U.S.,) BMW has taken the liberty of updating the sporty coupe with new looks, better technology, and even some powertrain and suspension updates to keep it fresh through the turn of the decade. Highlights include new LED exterior lights, a new front fascia, a new navigation system and instrument cluster, and some new color options inside and out.

The updated 4 Series will be available in a total of 31 different setups with a total of six different trim levels ranging from the entry-level 420i all the way up to the BMW 440i on the gasoline front and from the 420d up to the 435d xDrive for those of you who prefer oil burners. Few technical specifications for the various engines available have yet to be announced, but we know that the 420i will deliver 184 horsepower while the M44i will deliver 326 horsepower – that latter of which is a six-horsepower increase. On the diesel front, the 420d will deliver 190 horsepower while the 435d xDrive will offer up 313 horsepower. Then you’ve got the 4 Series Gran Coupe that comes with the model designation for 418d and has 150 ponies on tap. The 435d comes standard with xDrive, while it will be available as an add-on for most other models (it usually comes at a $2,000 premium over non-xDrive models)

But, it’s not all about engine and horsepower with this update. See, the updated 4 Series gets a revised suspension system that is now stiffer on the standard Coupe and Gran Coupe. While the dynamics of the suspension system have been updated for all models, including those with M Sport and Adaptive suspension. If you go with the 430 models or higher, you can opt for high-performance tires straight from the factory.

As far as looks go, all 4 Series models now come standard with LED headlights and LED fog lights as standard equipment – a big improvement over the xenon lights that came standard on the current model. And, even better yet, you’ll find restyled taillight lenses that are sportier and lit up by bright LED lights as well – a first for the 4 Series. The front fascia now features chrome trim that follows the lower edge of the fascia and wraps around the restyled fake vents that house the fog lights. Out back, a new chrome strip has been added to the slightly reworked rear fascia. As far as wheels go, there are four new wheels, three of which feature five primary spokes and one that features a dual, 10-spoke design. New exterior finishes include Snapper Rocks Blue (Shown on the M4 in the gallery) and Sunset Orange (shown on the convertible models in the gallery).

Finally, the interior gets an updated navigation system and new instrument cluster to go with an updated steering wheel. The infotainment display comes with the updated user interface that we saw in the new 5 Series in Detroit. To round out the interior updates, the dash gets double stitching while center stack trim now features gloss black trim. The trim around the power window controls and HVAC vents are not electroplated while the HVAC and CD changer controls get healthy doses of chrome. All told, that’s a lot of updates to a car that’s just a few years old, but it will surely be welcomed by Bimmer fans everywhere.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 4 Series Convertible

The BMW 4 Series made its global debut in 2013, right after the German brand decided to split the two- and four-door version of the 3 Series under different nameplates. While the 3 Series kept the sedan body style, the coupe and convertible were rebadged as 4 Series models. Despite the different name, the 3 Series and 4 Series shared everything from platform and drivetrains to exterior design and interior features. A convertible version of the 4 Series followed later in 2013, while M4 variants of both body styles were launched in 2014.

After some three years on the market, the 4 Series Convertible is getting its first mid-cycle update. Spotted on public roads shorty after the 4 Series Coupe and M4 Coupe were taken out for a spin, the drop-top appears to be in for similar upgrades styling-wise. Much like any BMW facelift, changes are limited to certain exterior features, but more updates are expected to occur inside the cabin and under the hood.

Look for the revised convertible to make its public debut by the end of 2016 and go on sale for the 2017 model year. Until that happens, let’s have a closer look at the spy shots in our speculative review below.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 4 Series Coupe

The 4 Series Coupe is one of BMW’s newest nameplates, having been introduced in 2013. It replaced the previous-generation 3 Series Coupe after BMW decided to split the two- and four-door versions of the compact car into distinct products. Besides the revised exterior and interior that comes with every redesign and the new name, the 4 Series also received a turbocharged six-cylinder instead of the previous naturally aspirated V-8, a change that affected the four-door 3 Series as well.

After three years on the market without any changes whatsoever, the 4 Series is getting a mid-cycle facelift for the 2017 model year. That’s the word from our trusty paparazzi, who caught the updated 4 Series stretching its wheels on public roads. Naturally, the test car wears the usual black-and-white camouflage, but the fact that only certain parts are hidden provide some hints as to what will change with the facelift. As with most BMW updates, or Life Cycle Impulse (LCI) as the German brand likes to call it, the facelift will be rather mild inside and out.

There’s no word as to when the refreshed coupe will hit dealerships, but a debut is likely to happen by the end of the year. Until we find out more, have a look at our speculative review below.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M3 & M4 Competition Package

BMW’s M3 sedan, M4 coupe, and M4 convertible have always been highly regarded and more than good enough to satisfy the craving for luxury and performance buyers in one package. Those models, however, are about to be offered with a new optional package dubbed the “Competition Package.” But, before we dive too much into what this new package offers for the M3 sedan, M4 coupe, and M4 convertible, let’s take a quick look back at the models.

It doesn’t take much to explain the M3. It was introduced back in 1985 and has seen several generations, including induction into the E36, E46, E90, E92, and E93 generations of the 3 Series. It is also the only car that has earned more titles in Motorsport than the Porsche 911. The M3 coupe and convertible are long gone, but the sedan carries the name on, and we’re excited to see BMW is still offering up new packages for the 21-year-old name.

When the M4 came to be in 2014, BMW ceased production of the M3 coupe and convertible in favor of having the M4 coupe and convertible instead. This gave the M3 sedan a series all its own, with the M4 carrying on the M legacy, but like the refreshed M3 sedan, it is powered by an inline six-cylinder engine that pumps out 431 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. The change over to a turbocharged six wasn’t all that unwelcome, though, as the engine puts out an additional 17 horsepower and 111 pound-feet of torque more than the outgoing V-8 in the M3. BMW also claims better efficiency with a 25-percent improvement in fuel economy.

So, what does this new Competition Package offer for this trio? Well, I’m glad you asked. Take a short walk down the page with me as we look into these packages and how they make the M3 and M4 that much better.

PostHeaderIcon Alpha-N Performance BMW 4 Series Upgrade Kit

Alpha-N Performance BMW 4 Series-1

BMW specialists at Alpha-N have come up with a nice and round power upgrade kit for the 435d and 435i models, boosting the performance and enhancing the driving experience of the car. Alpha-N Performance BMW 4 Series kits can be fitted to both and convertible models with the TwinPower straight-six engine.

The meat of Alpha-N Performance BMW 4 Series upgrade package is a plug and play power box known as EVOX Chiptuning Box. It consists new codes and software modules that boost the performance of both diesel and petrol units, unlocking a new level of performance without having a negative effect on emissions and fuel consumption.

For the 435i petrol engine, the EVOX ups the power output from the standard 306 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque to 367 horsepower with 520 Nm. In the case of the diesel engine those figures are 313 to 374 horsepower and 630 to 740 Nm of torque. For optimum performance, and peace of mind, Alpha-N Performance BMW 4 Series should also be fitted with a larger intercooler. So although the chip tuning costs a mere 699 EUR, you are going to have shell out an extra 690 EUR for that.

Alpha-N also recommends a chassis upgrade for the 4er, consisting of  Öhlins coilover suspension system and a set of O.Z. Racing Superturismo in size 8,5×19 inch with 235/35R19 tires up front and 255/30R19 out back.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M4 Coupe M Performance Edition

Ever since the BMW M4 broke into the scene back in 2014, Bavaria’s resident sports coupe has received numerous iterations and special edition treatments. In just over a year, versions like the M4 GTS, M4 Coupe Individual, and M4 Pyrite Brown Edition have all taken center stage at various points in time. Now, BMW Japan is adding two more special edition versions of the M4 into the mix, one of which is called the M4 Coupe M Performance Edition.

Taking its cues from a handful of other special edition M4s released before it, the M4 Coupe M Performance Edition comes with a bevy of upgrades to the exterior and interior, although most of it can be found on the body of the sports coupe. Oddly enough, the M4 Coupe M Performance Edition doesn’t have any performance upgrades, although some of the new components on the exterior of the M4 can be described as “performance-enhancing.”

Another downside to this special edition M4 is its availability. BMW’s only making this available in Japan so unless you live in the Land of the Rising Sun, you’re not going to get access to buying any of the 17 units BMW is building of the M4 Coupe M Performance Edition.

BMW 4 Series Convertible-M-0

It’s been a while since the guys at BMW Abu Dhabi showed off one of their unique custom Bimmers. But they are back now with this, a fully kitted-out M Sport BMW 4 Series Convertible in one of the sweetest colors on BMW’s palette.

The magnificent color on this BMW 4 Series Convertible is complemented in the nicest way imaginable with a set of carbon fiber M Performance parts. You have the front spoiler lip which gives the car an M4-ish look, the carbon mirror caps and side skirts, rear diffuser, and carbon M tailpipes. There are two of these pipes though, instead of the four you get on a real M4.

Other M highlights of this car include the M wheels and an M steering wheel inside the red leather cabin. This BMW 4 Series Convertible is a 435i model powered by 3.0 liter straight-six turbo engine developing a maximum output of 225 kW/306 hp and peak torque of 400 Nm (295 ft-lbs). It provides acceleration capability from 0 to 100 km/h (60 mph) in just 5.6 seconds and an electronically limited 250 km/h, while returning 8.4 litres per 100 kilometres and CO2 emissions range of 195 grams per kilometer.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 4 Series Convertible With M Performance Power Kit

2014 brought us rumors of BMW working on a performance-oriented 3 Series that would slot between the 340i and the 2016 BMW M3 in terms of output. This spawned yet another rumor that Munich might do the same with the 4 Series to give the nameplate a proper competitor for the 2016 Audi S5 and the upcoming 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Coupe. However, BMW has yet to confirm it and word has it the Germans might have cancelled the project, despite the big gap between the range-topping, non-M model and the M-badged trim. Meanwhile, if a sexier and more powerful version of the 435i is what you need, but you can’t afford the M4, BMW has you covered with the M Performance Power kit.

The first 4 Series to sport this upgrade is actually a convertible model. The drop-top seen here was showcased at the brand’s dealership in Abu Dhabi before the lucky customer who commissioned it came in to take it home and enjoy those sunny weekends in the Arabian Peninsula.

Unlike the wide array of Individual-badged Bimmers that usually receive a special paint job, a set of custom wheels, and a full leather interior, the M Performance Parts kit brings a lot more to the table. As the name suggests, it also adds a body kit to the car, and, more importantly, adds more power under the hood. Check out the full details below.

Carlex BMW 4 Series Convertible-0

The latest high-end car to get the full Carlex treatment at the tuner’s new European headquarters is a white BMW 4 Series Convertible. The keywords Carlex Design uses to describe what they have done to this Bimmer are ‘hot’ and ‘spicy’, and that is only partly because of its red theme.

Carlex’s BMW 4 Series Convertible is hot because it gets a complete and thorough makeover with red and black leather, new upholstery design, painted trim pieces, carbon fiber elements, and Alcantara accent. In fact, you can argue the interior package they have put together is way too classy for a car of 4 Series caliber.

The BMW 4 Series Convertible unto which this treatment is implemented is a nicely specced model with a M Sport kit. On the outside that means spotty M bumpers and wheels. On the inside it means an M4 steering wheel which Carlex has wrapped in black leather and accented with red Alcantara. The same theme is applied to the rest of the cabin, from the seats to the door cards and dashboard.

Another big highlight of this car is a healthy dose of carbon fiber adorning parts of the dashboard and center console. So I think you can see now how and why this car is spicy and hot. Because it gets you all excited!

G-Power BMW 435d-0

Everybody knows about the drawbacks of diesel engines, but only a few ever talk about its advantages. BMW specialist G-Power has recently developed a taste for these engines and has come up with a kit to show their enthusiasm. G-Power BMW 435d xDrive is what an M4 diesel would have been like, if such a thing existed.

Now, G-Power is a tuner with immense capabilities. They have the technical know-how to fit a M3 with the V10 engine of an old M5 and then go set a world speed record with it. So it is not a surprise that they have managed to extract an extra 67 hp and 125 Nm out of the straight-six turbodiesel engine in the 435d through electronics manipulation alone. The engine now produces 380 hp (279 kW) and 755 Nm.

G-Power BMW 435d-1
G-Power BMW 435d-2

That is still not on the par with what you get from the real M4. But still, G-Power BMW 435d is torquier than the petrol-powered car, it costs less, and it doesn’t look as chintzy. Speaking of the looks, G-Power offers a set of 20″ G-POWER HURRICANE RR wheels for this car which, as you can see in the pictures, suits it rather well. So yes, this car would be our choice over the M4 if we were in the market for a high-performance 4 Series.

PostHeaderIcon Red BMW 435i M Sport Stuns at BMW Abu Dhabi

Red BMW 435i M Sport-0

By now you all must be aware of the fact that BMW Abu Dhabi is the coolest representative of the German brand in the world. We are basing that judgment on the fact that they always get the coolest colors and options. This uniquely specced BMW 435i M Sport is the latest addition to their impressive collection.

The color alone is enough reason to call this BMW 435i M Sport one of the hottest examples in the world right now. You don’t see that many red 4ers around, and certainly not in this special “Individual” shade.

The paint job is complemented with a full set of M Sport components including carbon fiber front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser with integrated tailpipes, and boot lid spoiler. Other highlights include blue brake calipers, carbon mirror caps and gloss black kidney grilles, plus a set of exclusive wheels which truth be told are not very cool.

AD’s BMW 435i M Sport has a special interior as well, boasting an M4 steering wheel with aluminum accents and shifters. But whereas the real M cars gets carbon fiber trims on the dash and door cards, this 435i has wood and black plastic. Likewise, the three-cylinder straight-six engine is basically the same unit you find in the M4, but at 306 hp it is about 120 horses less strong.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe Bi-Color by BMW Individual

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe Individual-0

The next special edition model to come out of BMW’s Individual department, specializing in bespoke options, is a Bi-Color edition version of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. While looking pretty ordinary on the outside, this car features one of the coolest interiors fitted to any Bimmer ever.

That is, of course, not saying much since BMWs are infamous for having boring cabins. That is not the case with the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe Individual though. This interior is designed based on the starkest contrast possible between white and black, hence the B-Color designation, mixing Frozen Brilliant White metallic with BMW Individual Collection interior trim in Piano finish Black.

So the bottom half of the cabin is wrapped almost entirely in white fine-grain merino leather, which is probably not very practical seeing as white leather gets dirty fairly quickly, while the top half is garnished with Piano Black. The biggest highlight of the interior, however, is the BiColour Opal White/Black steering wheel featuring luminous Opal White accents. Although the BMW Individual Manufaktur signet on the rear shelf is also a nice touch.

Just about the only signs giving away the specialness of BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe Individual on the outside are the Frozen Brilliant White metallic paint job and the fancy 10 double-spoke wheels.

Bagged BMW 4 Series-0

There are countless ways to improve the looks and feel of your BMW 4 Series these days. You can fit it with a nice body kit, install some cool wheels, wrap it in some strange color, or if you are nuts do what this guys has done and have your car bagged.

This is a strange thing to do with a car as serious looking as BMW 4 Series, but we have admit the end result does look cool precisely because the looks of the 4er do not lend themselves to such treatments. It’s like seeing a respected politician dressed as a rapper. It’s a laugh.

In order to bag his BMW 435i, the owner of this car has fit it with an Airlift air suspension system and slammed it on a set of Vossen VLE-1 limited edition wheels in Gloss Graphite, measuring 20×9 inch up front, 20×10.5 out back. The car does come with a standard M Sport kit, but that is the extent of visual modifications. He obviously didn’t want to go “too far” with it!

PostHeaderIcon BMW M4 GTS Will Drop Rear Seats And 220 LBS

BMW’s badging for special versions of M products sometimes feels a bit like it’s being made up as they go along. But the upcoming M4 GTS is not only a return of the GTS badge, first used on the 2010 M3 GTS, but it is also shaping up to be quite an impressive car. We’ve been getting piecemeal bits of information about the car for a little while, and the latest news from Bimmerpost tells us a bit about the weight savings we can expect from the car.

The first thing to look for is that there will be no back seat. Rear seat deletes are pretty much standard for all really serious track-focused versions of 2+2 coupes. The body will also be 220 pounds lighter than that of the standard M4, doubtless through the use of carbon fiber, as was the case with the previous GTS. A number of other creature comforts will be deleted, such as the infotainment and climate control systems, and racing seats will replace the remaining two seats. There might be options available in Europe which won’t be available in the US, but this is still undetermined.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Car Club of America Raffles M4 Dinan Club Edition

For the first time in its 14-year history, the BMW Car Club of America’s annual Car of Your Dreams Raffle will give away a fully tuned and custom-built Bimmer sporting a huge array of performance parts from one of the world’s leading go-faster shops, Dinan Engineering. The Grand Prize will be a 2015 M4 Coupe Dinan Club Edition with over 20 grand in upgrades, a total package value of $110,000.

Draped in an Alpine White paint job and boasting 530 horsepower, 504 pound-feet of torque, and a slew of tasty carbon-fiber add-ons, the hyper-powered two-door is ostensibly one of the most valuable and powerful M4s in existence.

“This year, we’re proud to present a Grand Prize raffle car engineered by Steve Dinan, rolling on Forgeline metal and gripping the road courtesy of Michelin. Three of the top names in automotive excitement join the Ultimate Drivers’ Club in bringing you the M4 of your dreams,” said Frank Patek, executive director of the BMW CCA.

In addition to the uber-Bavarian sled Grand Prize, the raffle will also give away a brand-new F80 M3 sedan, MSRP $62,000, and a brand-new M235i coupe, MSRP $43,100. There will also be special drawings for every ticket purchased during specific designated periods, with prizes including $1,000 gift cards for IHG Hotels, Michelin Tires, Shell gas, Best Buy, and Amex.

Tickets are currently available for $25 a pop to BMW CCA members only, so you’ll need to join if you want to win. Each ticket offers a 1-in-5,000 chance of winning a car. There is no limit to the number of tickets you can purchase. The entry deadline is September 10.

PostHeaderIcon 2016 M3 and M4 Pricing Revealed Via Leaked Ordering Guide

Both the BMW 3 Series and the M3 have just received their facelifts for the 2016 model year, and, as many of you are aware, updates are far from significant. Aside from the new 3.0-liter, inline-six in the 340i model, which replaces the previous 335i, both cars are about new light clusters and slightly revised dashboards. As a result, it was expected prices would see only minor adjustments compared to 2015. Now, an ordering guide that has just hit the Interwebz via Bimmer Post confirms that pricing for the 2016 M3 has seen a modest increase.

According to the guide, customers looking to buy the facelifted M3 would have to pay $63,200 before options. That’s an increase of $1,200 over 2015. Also, bundles such as the Driver Assistance Plus, the Executive Package, and the Lighting Package would cost $1,700, $3,500, and $1,900, respectively. Also, the available double-clutch transmission retails for $2,900, while the Adaptive M suspension fetches $1,000.

Having received similar updates, the M4 coupe is also $1,200 more expensive than last year’s model, meaning it retails from $65,400 for 2016. Likewise, the 2016 M4 Convertible sports a $1,400 premium, taking the new sticker to $74,900.

Pricing for the milder 3 Series and 4 Series have yet to be announced, but BMW should spill the beans later this summer. Stay tuned for updates.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M4 GTS Will Arrive In The U.S. In Early 2016

If you live in the United States and you’ve been holding out for a hotter BMW M4, then it appears your patience has been rewarded. Newly leaked information suggests that the racier 2016 M4 GTS will make its way across the Atlantic to be sold in North America. You might remember that BMW didn’t think we Americans were cool enough to buy the very fast and very orange E92 M3 GTS.

User MikeBMWVegas at Bimmer Post brought the info to light after he came across the 2016 M4 GTS Coupe in BMW’s North American ordering system. Info on colors, pricing and options isn’t available yet, but it appears sales will begin in March of 2016.

BMW hasn’t released anything official on the GTS or even confirmed its existence, but we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the lighter, more powerful M4. Our spy shots show some clearly visibly new exterior features, including a jutting front splitter and a fixed rear wing. Power should be bumped up to the 450 horsepower range and weight reduced by around 200 pounds. Look for the M4 GTS at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
