True Colors: a Quest for a Fire Orange M4.

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com




BMW’s introduction of Fire Orange to their color palette excited M enthusiasts everywhere. For many, the vibrancy of the color reflects the dynamic nature of the M car, and it is perhaps for this reason that BMW elected to use Fire Orange as the official release color for the E92 M3 GTS.

The owner of the Fire Orange M4 in this thread has been a BMW M enthusiast for many years, and was inspired by the E92 M3 GTS. The E92 GTS was a car that made no apologies about its sporting nature, and the M4 you see in this post is similarly unapologetic. When choosing the specification for his new M4, our client knew that nothing less than Fire Orange would suit the modifications he had already planned for the car.

Obtaining the Fire Orange color itself was a year-long quest, made more complex because of equipment changes within BMW’s own factory. We will give our client the opportunity to explain the details of his ordering process himself when he is ready, but suffice to say that ensuring that his Fire Orange order went through required persistence, good follow-up, and the help of some very kind people at BMW internally.

We’d planned the modifications for this M4 long before the car was completed by BMW, and had them prepared for installation before the car arrived at IND. The E92 M3 GTS spoke to us as inspiration, across generational lines, and with that car as our guide we began our work. This M4 was delivered to us with BMW’s carbon ceramic brakes, and an individual interior which included a beautiful orange stitch throughout.

IND then added a host of BMW Performance parts, ranging from the LED steering wheel, and shift knob cover and trim. The M Performance parts on this M4 were all installed utilizing BMW's own port installation program. BMW added gloss black kidney grilles, a gloss black BMW Performance lip, and gloss black side steps to start the M4 on it's journey. IND’s cosmetic package as always eliminates the original trim items in favor of beautiful gloss black pieces. Carbon mirror caps accompany the carbon splitters and diffuser to maintain a consistent feel. IND added a BBS FI-R wheel package in gloss black with Advan AD08R tires in a 275 front and 295 rear size for excellent handling balance. A Fall Line oil cooler guard was added for peace of mind when driving the car aggressively. Finally, to complete the GTS feel, IND reached out to our friends at Motorsport 24 in Germany to add a rear wing in carbon fiber which matched the GTS in personality.

Although there is now an official M4 GTS offering from BMW, this Fire Orange M4 will always stand on its own in evoking the Motorsport inspired feel many M owners pursue. We at IND were fortunate to see this gorgeous M4 in person, and are happy to share these images with the BimmerPost audience. Enjoy the photos!

Thanks Nate! IND Does great work!

I'll post the story of how all these pieces came together in a couple of days. Lots of people really need to be thanked. 14 months in the process. Finally getting the Windows tinted on Monday! Almost done! More to follow...

Beautiful car! Do you know if they will offer Fire Orange for this generation, maybe towards the end? The info is still a little unclear to me
