BMW’s decision to rename the 3 Series coupe as the 4 Series has both its positive and negative aspects. On the plus side we now have a model that is even more focused than the one it replaces as it can be designed without having to cast a thought to a saloon incarnation. That said, the 4 Series is a brand new nameplate and does not carry the 3 Series’ illustrious history. In short, this new car has to impress if it is to become as much of a legend as its predecessor.
The M-Performance Package for the Germans latest coupe adds a sinister depth to the cars appearance. A more sculpted bodykit with enhanced character lines gives this 4 Series a more aggressive stance. This car clearly previews the much anticipated M4… Revised suspension and 20 inch alloy wheels can now be specified along with a slight increase of power and torque to most engine options. The performance increase comes thanks to some revised ECU trickery and a new exhaust system.
