This F83 M4 convertible spotted yesterday completes the M3/M4 trifecta … until the M4 Gran Coupe comes along that is.
As one can see, the F83 M4 will generally share the M4 coupe and M3 sedan’s aero parts (and mechanicals). Even the trunk, which is of the automatically opening variety (to store the hardtop), appears to feature a similar CSL style curve. Parts such as the front/rear bumpers and mirrors may appear different than the M4 coupe, but that’s due to the heavier camouflage which the M4 convertible still retains.
The one clear difference is that the M4 convertible features a different roof — in the form of a non-carbon fiber folding hardtop. It will operate and fold in the same manner we’re used to seeing … CONTINUED
We showed you the latest F82 M4 coupe prototype today, and now feast your eyes at the F80 M3, also in the most revealing form yet! This is the first we’ve seen the F80 M3 in what appears to be Singapore Grey Metallic color.
The first thing that pops out (literally) at us are the fenders. Check out the nearly widebody look of the rear fenders. While the M4 is a svelte and sexy sports coupe, the new M3 looks like its bruiser brother with his bulldog stance.
As you can see, the F80 M3 shares virtually the same bodywork as the M4, save for the more prominently flared fenders and a different trunk design (no CSL style curve). The two share the same front front … CONTINUED
Following the reveal of the BMW M4 Concept, testing continues on the production M4 Coupe and here we have our best look yet at the production bound F82 M4.
Spotted in Germany, this prototype looks nearly the same as the concept. The only significant differences are the absence of the concept’s carbon fiber front lip, rear diffuser fins, carbon fiber exhaust tips and black kidney grilles, which may all become available as part of the M Performance Parts catalog for the M4.
Everything else is virtually identical – the bumpers, sideskirts, mirrors, roof, rear diffuser, CSL style trunk and the hood bump. Seems like those of you who were impressed by the M4 Concept will not any letdown with the production M4 model.
Technical specs have not yet … CONTINUED
A BIMMERPOST member completes his BMW European Delivery in what was a family trip of a lifetime. He, his wife, and their two boys flew direct form the Yukon, Canada to Germany. They picked up the car on August 13th and headed for Como, Italy via the Swiss alps. They returned a few days later through the Swiss alps via some mountain passes heading for the black forest.
The trip also included a trip to the Nurburgring. Catch his entire photo journal inside.

Following the leak of its patent drawings, the X4 M Sport has now been spied out testing.
Like the X3 M Sport, with which it shares a platform, the X4 M Sport Package will feature cosmetic enhancements such as the M Sport aerodynamic kit, M Sport wheels and shadowline exterior trim, as well as an M Sport steering wheel and interior.
The aerodynamic kit includes the M Sport front bumper, rear bumper, sideskirts and body color matched fenders, which can be seen on this prototype.
This model also features the adaptive LED headlights seen in the patents.
