Come on BMW! We would pay more for it! At least LED tail lamps to the M4...

Btw, what happened to those mirrors?! Pls tell me that they will modify it...

Bring it on BMW! We are waiting!
About the mirrors - read. They are camo covers. About the lights, it has been confirmed by Scott that the headlights and taillights are all LED.
Oh! Thank you!
Thx god they are are LEDs...
Looking forward

I can't understand how the CCB breaks could be weaker than the standard ones?

CCBs have been more durable than steel brakes, but thats not the problem ... just for example they are very sensitive to small stones, if they fall into the brake - a trip into the gravel and the brake could be over ... and a new CCB disk can easily cost almost as much as half of the surcharge for the complete CCBs.

We are also developing upgraded turbos for F10 M5/M6, where Garett
is used i strongly beleive, that some design by Garett will be applied on the M3/M4 turbos (which means, that these M3/M4 turbos will not last forever).

Yes Scott said that the 4 concept headlights will be standard on M4 and an option on the other 4 models.

Seems very unlikely considering:

1) The 4 series coupe options have been revealed (see here). Full LED head light is shown as an option, but we have already seen what these look like (see here) - and they do not look like the 4 Series Concept lights.

2) No M4 nor 4 Series prototypes have ever been spotted with headlights in the style of the 4 Series Concept (hexagonal and extending towards the kidney grilles).

Why would that mean the M3/M4 turbos will "not last forever"? Are Garett turbos considered unreliable or something?

Says in the article:

This particular F82 M4 coupe prototype was wearing Continental ContiSportContact tires - 275/35 rear (like F80 M3).

Other prototypes (F80 M3) in the past have been spied with Michelin Pilot Super Sport: 255/35/19 (front), 275/35/19 (rear)

No. I said that the 4er and M4 will feature adaptive LEDs I did not mention exclusively the concept. The designer of the concept headlights came to BMW in 2012 and therefore the car was already in development.
The benefit of LED technology now is that lights not only get brighter but become much smaller in unit shape. We will probably see something like the concepts on a future model.

The production 4er Coupe launch is imminent and M4 Cabrio prototypes have started to show up at the FIZ.

Seeing as all of us here are passionate for two door M cars, I'm gonna go off topic slightly. I've never owned an American sports car, but I'm curious what this group of enthusiasts think of the new C7 Stingray. Like it? Hate it? The numbers I'm seeing are getting my attention. And my big gripe about past Vetts, the crapy interior seem to have been addressed. 2014/15 there will be a new car in my stable... M4 or Z51 Stingray. Very different sports cars for sure, but a zero to 60 under 4 seconds get my attention along with the new modern looks.
What do you think??

How long does it take to implement changes to the headlights? I couldn't imagine that it would be that long.

Are there going to be two models for sure , m3 and m4 ?
If so, this one sits pretty high in front much like the xdrive models, any chance we'll see a surprise all wheel drive m4 and standard m3 ?
