Alekshop l M4 GTS Euro Spec

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
We had a pleasure to work on a few M4 GTS cars and decided to share some pictures of this GTS that came in to us with 63 miles to get Euro Spec parts installed.

Despite all the negative reviews this car gets, it's an absolutely cool car and anyone who has one should be proud to own this beast!

These are the parts we added to make it Euro Spec like:
  • Euro Carbon Fiber Bucket Seats
  • Euro Extinguisher Kit
  • Euro Sun Visors (no airbag warning stickers)

The car came in in factory Matte Gray finish and to keep it protected we wrapped the entire car with satin finish protective film. Also a set of Akrapovic pipes was added to enhance that awesome barking sound that it makes

Enjoy!






































Here is a video of what it sounds like with Akrapovic pipes

Shouldn't the shield for the fire extinguisher be facing the front? Any pics or video of the akrapovic?

Stunning pictures!
The fire extinguisher shield SHOULD face the front (in case of a shock or heavy braking).

FYI, I have seen a lot more good reviews that bad ones on the gts, from all over the world.
US magazines seem to trash everything but Mustangs, Camaros and Corvettes. Nothing is ever mentioned about the awful plastic interior in those cars. I could not stand it for everyday driving. I definitely care more about EVO's reviews than Car and Driver's.

You are correct about the shield but owner wanted it to be this way.

Yes it's true that car is not being reviewed for what it is. Comparing it to GT3RS is also silly and who cares about cup holders when you got roll bar behind you

Looks great!
The quick throttle blips makes it sound like it's running only on methane derived from some member of the legume family. Sorry for my fifth grade mind, but It sounds like it's ripping farts! Usually their exhausts sound great so maybe it's my lousy iPhone speaker.
Anyway, still looks great. And yes, I even mean the orange 666 wheels!

Farting is absolutely the most common adjective for the S55 exhaust note and overrun

The Gts is not just a track car. For me, it is a car you can actually drive to the track and occasionally track. And, since I plan to use mine mostly as a daily driver (not a qarage queen), I do care what it looks like inside. The interior finish is stunning and the look and feel of the alcantara leather, details like the door handles, carbon fiber doors, stunning roll cage, etc..., are all part of the experience.
If I wanted a car just for the track, there are a lot of other options out there for a lot less money.
