Rendered BMW M4 Facelift: More Power Rumored

Love/Hate Grille Remains with New Headlights

BMW is planning to apply a Life Cycle Impulse (LCI) to its 4 Series model line similar to the one it gave to the 3 Series Sedan and Touring in 2022. Already late January of this year saw the swankier version get a sizable overhaul when it was switched over to the new iDrive 8 infotainment system, which incidentally is the very same dual-screen setup that first debuted on the sedan and wagon back in 2020. As for what we can anticipate from the upcoming full-on LCI update of the M4, there will undoubtedly be some visual changes to BMW’s sports coupe in tow.

Recently, a 4 Series Coupe that had been fitted with the M Sport Package as well as a higher-end M440i was discovered; however, no prototypes of the top-level version have been seen yet. Despite this, we assume the M4 will include sleeker headlamps with crisper LED daytime running lights comparable to the new 2021 X5 and X6, not to mention the upcoming 5 Series. Regrettably, the debatable grille design will remain in place, whereas an extra elegant kidney look -akin to that of the highly rare 3.0 CSL- would be welcomed.

The exterior of the M4 could see some mild modifications to the bumper and some slightly updated LED illumination for its tail lights. That being said, BMW typically sets its motorcars apart with novel color choices and wheel designs, so there could well be some energizing options when it comes to personalizing your sport coupe. The M4 has a huge range of personalizing paints and the famous M Performance Parts available for further customization.

It has recently been revealed by a notable source from the Bimmer Post forum that BMW are preparing to bestow increased capability upon the xDrive version of the M4. The model, featuring an automatic transmission and only available as a Competition range, could generate up to 525PS – this may potentially convert to 518hp, offering a 15hp upgrade when contrasted with the existing M4 Competition RWD/xDrive.

It is not necessarily the most robust execution of an inline-six motor, since the twin-turbocharged 3.0 liter mill creates 543 horsepower in the M3 CS and M4 CSL. The prior mentioned limited run 3.0 CSL in fact surpasses that, manufacturing 553 hp from the same S58 engine used by the M2 as well as the X3 M/X4 M.

BMW is expected to begin assemblage of the altered M4 with Coupe and Convertible forms come March 2024, with the LCI of the M3 to consecutively surface in July that same year. Frank van Meel – the chairperson of M division supposedly set forth the possibility of an M4 CS which could fill the vacancy between the M4 Competition and the M4 CSL.

Rumors are abounding that the M3 Touring will undergo a refresh; however, since its launch, it has been furnished with iDrive 8.
