BMW NA Launch Event: Melbourne Red 4 Series M Sport

COMMENTS

You've seen Alpine White and Mineral Gray 4 Series M Sport models from our BMW NA 4 Series media launch galleries, now have a look at the 4 Series M Sport in Melbourne Red.

How do you think it compares to the other colors we've shown so far?

Melbourne Red 4 Series M Sport

Looks stunning! Seems like they improved on the orange peel?

Nice new wheels. They are different than the ones shown with the Alpine White or Mineral Gray. Anyone have any idea what style are these? and size? Its a shame that they don't have the 400M in 19 or a genuine M5 style that will fit the F30.

This Melbourne Red and the Mineral Gray has standard 18" 4 series M Sport wheels.

The Alpine White has the optional 19" M Sport wheels!

M Sport wheels for 4 series:

18" M Double-spoke style 441 M
8JX18 ET:34
8.5JX18 ET:47
etk.cc

19" M Double-spoke style 442 M
8JX19 ET:36
8.5JX19 ET:47
etk.cc

The specification in terms of width and offsets are identical compared to F30 3 series M Sport wheels.

Thanks Jason, this is now my favorite color combo and luckily had enough time to change my F32 order this morning from AW/CR to MB/VB without messing with my delivery date.

Looks fantastic in most colors but the M-sport in MB is the business IMHO.

Never thought of saying this, but it looks really good in red. Kind of reminiscent of the old E30 325is

Red is my favorite color on any BMW! I think this is the best looking model BMW has out. It was my 6 grancoupe before the 4 series!

Call me Debbie Downer, but I'm still amazed at the amount of orange peel in the paint on a car this expensive (see image 9). My Toyota and my wife's Lexus have better paint jobs.

That isn't orange peel.

I disagree with everyone. The red suits the F30 much better somehow and that glacier silver one looks better than this red (even though I'm so partial to red cars). Mineral gray still takes the cake for me.

Great looking car but that foul Bimmerang still hasn’t grown on me. I know people talk about how since it’s functional it’s cool and not hokey, but if it was purely about function it wouldn’t be a contrasting color. If I purchased a 4’er I’d paint that thing body color ASAP.
