We have added our side profile renders of the 2015 BMW M4 Coupe (F82) to our set of official renders.
We started with a photo of the F82 M4 right outside of the BMW M testing center at the Nurburgring and began peeling away at the camouflage based on details which can be discerned from this particular prototype, other F82 M4 and F80 M3 mules, as well as our other imagination and speculation.
Here are some render highlights:
• Sportier and sleeker kidney grilles (as seen on previous F32 4 series coupe prototype).
• Sleeker headlights than sedan (which has been rumored and is expected).
• Similar front apron/bumper styling as the F80 M3 – with combined styling from the M6 and 1M (seen clearly in spy pics)
• Air curtain … CONTINUED
iND once again showcases two eye catching customer builds – an F10 M5 and E92 M3 coupe, both owned by the same lucky owner.
Words by iND:
Louis approached us in need of consultation for his E92 M3. Although initially we were talking some small steps to improve the M3, the car eventually transformed into the beast seen in these photos. We are fortunate to work with a client like Louis because he allows us creative freedom, and his open mind and creative nature give us the oppotunity to try new color schemes and combinations on his cars. The M3 is a result of this creative freedom, with the Lamborghini Rosso Vik BBS FI wheels and ESS Supercharger manifold attesting to the fact that Louis is … CONTINUED

We’ve all viewed the wild street driving videos that come from Russia while wondering when we would see a wreck. These pics and videos from a BMW M Club drive in Russia show that you can’t beat luck forever when driving recklessly.
The incident occurred this past May and the wreck resulted in damages to an E92 M3 coupe, 1M coupe, E34 M5 and E46 M3, which received the worst damage, as seen below. A Subaru wagon was an innocent victim and was also totaled. Pics via Autogespot and site member EdwardM5.
Use caution out there folks!
