Lightbulb [Updated with Q&A] - New M4 M Performance Parts at SEMA 2015

Updated 11/6 with wallpapers of M4 with updated M Performance Parts

Updated 11/4 with Q&A from SEMA 2015

At SEMA 2015, we had a chance to speak with BMW representatives Stefan Weiss (Product Manager for M Performance Parts), Eric Reichel (Lifestyle & Accessories manager) and Jake Mooney (Accessory Specialist – Exterior, M Performance and Motorsport) about M Performance Parts for the BMW M4.

Q: What are the details of the M4 M Performance Suspension?
A: The M4 M Performance Suspension maintains the factory adaptive EDC function and uses your factory struts to retain adjustability depending on driving experience mode selected (comfort, sport or sport+). It’s paired with stiffer springs and a revised bumpstop tuned for better performance. It comes with an adjustable perch for height adjustability (from 5mm to 25mm drop). The kit is developed in conjunction with KW and it is based on their sleeve-over suspension kit. The difference with the BMW M Performance coilover kit is the M Performance Specific spring rates, bumpstops, and assorted hardware. As with all BMW M Performance Parts, the factory warranty is retained when installed by a trained BMW technician. The springs are manufactured by KW specifically to BMW M’s spring rates and the kit has been tested on a four post rig and fine tuned at the Nurburgring. The reason why retaining EDC function was important is because the take rate on EDC is 70-80% on the M3/M4 in the US.

For your reference, the M4 on the SEMA floor is lowered 20mm.


Q: Does the M4 carbon rear diffuser fit the M3?
A:
Yes


Q: Does the M4 carbon rear diffuser work with the trunk kick release feature?
A:
No, carbon fiber in general will block radio signals and other various types of signals (Wifi, Bluetooth etc) from being transmitted. That’s why you haven’t seen a carbon fiber shark fin antenna - because it wouldn’t receive/transmit signal.


Q: Are F80 M3 side blades / skirts coming?
A:
Not at the present time.


Q: Any other parts expected for the F80 M3?
A:
The M4 suspension kit will be for the F80 M3 as well. Also, depending on how well the just announced through-flow spoiler sells for the M4, a version may be adapted for the M3 (because of different aero).


Q: When will the newly announced M4 parts be available?
A:
Mid-2016


__________________________________________________ ______________

Updated 11/3 with live photos from SEMA 2015

We bring you live photos from SEMA 2015 of the BMW M4 with updated / new M Performance Parts.

We're putting together our Q&A / FAQ on the M4 M Performance Parts, so we'll have lots more details and info to post very soon.

For now, we can share that the M4 M Performance suspension is like the KW HAS (height adjustable system), and matches the factory EDC struts with stiffer springs, and a height adjustable perch.

BMW M4 M Performance Parts at SEMA 2015






November 3, 2015.

The Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) in Las Vegas (Nevada, USA) is regarded worldwide as the leading trade show for customisation and sports tuning. The new products presented at SEMA to trade experts influence the entire scene and set trends. At this year's SEMA show from November 3rd to 6th 2015, BMW presents a selection of distinctively sports-oriented BMW M Performance Parts to the trade fair audience. Located on the lower level of South Hall (Stand 40247), trade fair visitors will see a BMW M Performance modified BMW M4 Coupe as well as the first BMW M Performance Parts for the new BMW M2 Coupe (link to BMW M2 parts announcement).

What is more, the new "M Performance" inscription in dynamic technical design is to be seen on selected parts. The inscription reflects the increased dynamic flair of BMW M Performance as well as underscoring the essential functional orientation of all BMW M Performance Parts. Evidence of this is also to be seen in the new, extremely sporty parts and components with which BMW has fitted the demonstration vehicle. The new inscription will initially appear on the BMW M Performance Parts for the models BMW M2 Coupe and BMW M4 Coupe, but in future it will be used for the entire BMW M Performance product portfolio.

BMW M4 Coupe with M Performance Parts – exterior.

The BMW M4 Coupe is regarded as the ultimate driving machine and the benchmark for sporty driving dynamics in its class. This status is also reflected in its appearance, which is defined by motor racing style. It is now possible to enhance this look even further by means of the new BMW M Performance aerodynamic components. The front inserts in high-end carbon fibre (CFRP) and the BMW M Performance front trim grille in high-gloss black give the face of the BMW M4 Coupe an even more striking expression. The lateral BMW M Performance side sill attachments made of polyurethane (PUR) with the new "M Performance" inscription emphasise the dynamic elegance of the BMW M4 Coupe. BMW M Performance exterior mirror caps in carbon fibre finish, the lateral BMW M Performance side gills in high-gloss black in the M gill elements and BMW M Performance motor racing stripes applied to the body perfectly supplement the dynamic side view.

Meanwhile at the rear of the car, a BMW M Performance carbon fibre diffuser with three strikingly shaped bars derived from motorsports and a newly designed BMW M Performance through-flow rear spoiler likewise made of carbon fibre further highlight the powerful rear section of the BMW M4 Coupe. The new "M Performance" inscription on the lateral end plates of the rear spoiler as well as the motorsports stripes on the spoiler connecting sections constitute a further distinctive visual highlight.

These attachment parts, some elaborately crafted by hand, not only give the BMW M4 Coupe a distinctive and high-end appearance, they also provide a perfect match for the car's highly expressive design. What is more, all BMW M Performance aerodynamic components are harmonised with the car's airflow response, so they ensure optimised aerodynamic performance as well as supporting an ambitious driving style. The adjustable BMW M Performance coilover suspension likewise enhances sporty driving pleasure. The lowered suspension intensifies the distinctively sporty look of the BMW M4 Coupe as well as conveying a more dynamic ride feel.

BMW M Performance exhaust system: more sound, less weight.

The lightweight construction exhaust system comprises a stainless steel exhaust duct with a rear silencer made entirely of titanium and bearing the "M Performance" inscription when viewed from the rear. Eye-catching BMW M Performance tailpipe trim elements made of carbon fibre with M logo add another visual highlight. There are two settings available to adjust the sound characteristics of the BMW M Performance silencer system, each of which is linked to the performance characteristics of the engine activated at the press of a button. Even the standard mode is impressive with its striking, sports-style sound that is still well-suited to everyday use.

Meanwhile the powerful in-line 6-cylinder with M TwinPower Turbo Technology remains the same, offering an output of 317 kW/431 hp (combined fuel consumption: 8.3 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions: 194 g/km)* and combining enthralling driving dynamics with impressive efficiency in a way that is unrivalled by any other engine in its output class. Fitted with an M twin-clutch transmission, the BMW M4 Coupe exhibition car at SEMA accelerates in just 4.1 seconds from standing to 100 km/h. The top speed is electronically cut off at 250 km/h.

BMW M4 Coupe with M Performance Parts – interior.

On the inside, one eye-catching feature is the BMW M Performance steering wheel Pro with a rim in Alcantara Anthracite. The steering wheel trim element is in clear-finish carbon fibre and also bears the "M Performance" inscription. At the 12-o'clock position the steering wheel rim features a blue centre-position marking derived from motorsports.

A BMW M Performance gear selection lever for the M twin-clutch transmission (M DKG) protrudes from the BMW M Performance centre console trim, perfectly fitting the driver's hand. The light and yet highly resilient composite material carbon fibre was also used for the door handles and the handbrake handle with Alcantara gaiter. Meanwhile the driver's feet control a pedal system fitted with BMW M Performance pedal covers that are made of stainless steel. The trade show vehicle also features LED door projectors. From January 2016 the first of the new BMW M Performance Parts will be available for the BMW M4 Coupe. The entire range of parts will be available from the BMW dealer network by June 2016.

Haven't even looked for a price, but I can't imagine that spoiler costing much less than $5k from BMW.

Is that the font from Mission Impossible 2 or III?

If so, can BMW marketing get it together and use a better font?

I don't think that spoiler looks good. The original carbon fibre spoiler that has been out looks much better!

Agreed. It's going to take some getting used to. At first glance I thought this was just some product from some shop shown at SEMA - Not the BMW "M Performance" brand.

On a plus note, at least they are selling the spoiler from the GTS without having to pay some extraordinary high cost due to shipping and limited production numbers (but we all know it's going to cost $4K+)

Not feeling the font either, the stripes, the wing Ehh im not a wing guy. A black car MIGHT be able to pull it off, even then I wouldn't care for it. I'll take the exhaust, front splitter, rear diffuser and call it a day

I actually like the font, although at first glance it doesn't convey "BMW" to me.

Apparently, it has this. I am wondering if its full replacement or HAS alike system.

"The adjustable BMW M Performance coilover suspension likewise enhances sporty driving pleasure. The lowered suspension intensifies the distinctively sporty look of the BMW M4 Coupe as well as conveying a more dynamic ride feel."
