Arrow Spied: 2018 BMW M4 CS in LCI form

BIMMERPOST NEWS

COMMENTS

Update: February 15, 2017

Trusty source ynguldyn has provided a small update in our BMW model pipeline thread:

"Some specifics regarding US spec 2018 M4 CS: standard DCT, OLED lights, wheel/tire package off the GTS."



Update: February 13, 2017

As you saw in the other thread, the BMW M4 CS was caught uncovered during a commercial shoot featuring BMW driver Augusto Farfus.

Update: January 11, 2017

We now know that the previously spied prototypes below are the upcoming M4 CS model (available at LCI this Summer) (see confirmation) and we've just spied it undergoing cold climate testing.

The M4 CS will feature the competition package and some parts off the GTS (possibly suspension, brakes, exhaust, aero, etc.).

According to our schedule, although the MY2017 M4 will end production in February, the MY2018 M4 LCI refreshed model will not start production until July. There will be a four month gap in production from the end of MY2017 to the beginning of MY2018.

Updated September 23, 2016 with some great closeups!

BMW M4 LCI with GTS Style Package






Updated August 11, 2016 with the clearest look yet at the M4 LCI with GTS Style Package, now with GTS style hood and a sportier trunk spoiler.

Here's the first clear look at the BMW M4 LCI facelift model. It sports the new headlight design as seen on recent 4 Series LCI prototypes. If you recall, the E92 M3 facelift did not include a front end/headlight update, so the M4 LCI appears to feature more styling changes, which also includes new OLED tail lights as seen on this prototype and a previously spotted prototype.

New Package?

While this prototype appears to resemble an M4 GTS, the absence of the GTS exhaust and rear wing tells us that it's not. So, we could possibly be looking at a new package -- perhaps a GTS Package which includes GTS style front lip, hood, wheels, and ceramic brakes.

What else?

This M4's interior is also covered, indicating possible updates to the dashboard design. The color is also new -- a lighter shade of grey than Mineral Grey, and resembling Donington Grey Metallic which debuted on the X5M/X6M.

That's really interesting. Does that mean that M3 will get the same front?

And also a new color, hopefully. That's surely not the mineral grey, as you can see mineral grey F34 behind it. Looks like the Donington grey.

That looks like some kind of GTS clone edition or something. Even has the front lip. Is this like a ZHP version of the GTS?

That's not an LCI. That's the M4 GTS.

Whats the point of needing to test drive with new lights really? And most of it is covered up so are you really testing them out anyways?

Clearly that's not the GTS. And that's an LCI of the M4. Not sure about the front lip though.

Standard M4s don't come with Orange GTS wheels. I agree its not a GTS but its something odd.

Maybe it's the new Fanboy Package to replace AW w/ SO DCT

I think we don't have to focus too much on the wheels, many times on test mule they used different type of wheels.

Wonder why the cover up the interior as well, especially the emblem on the steering wheel and not the ones on the wheels...

Looks like BMW is breaking w/ M LCI tradition and updating the headlights. Yay!

Yup, probably just the handiest 20s they had

All logos are covered including the M on the steering wheel, probably standard test mule procedure

My guess would be that's a fully optioned LCI, including potential suspension options; so it's got comp, ceramics, lip, all suspension options, full lights, etc

It does not have the GTS hood and exhaust. So it is no GTS IMO.

Seems like a lot of work, just to ignore the logos on the rims
