Lightbulb Frankfurt IAA 2013: BMW 4 Series M Performance Parts [Updated with Feature Video]

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
By David J. September 11, 2013

We've just finished covering the press days for the 2013 Frankfurt IAA auto show and one of our favorites from the BMW display was the 4 Series Coupe with M Performance Parts [Official Thread / Previous Pics] fitted.

Updated with BMW feature video:




The M Performance Parts available for the F32 4 Series include:

The BMW M Performance Power Kit ( PPK ):
BMW 420d (+12Kw, +40Nm) / (+16hp, +30 lb-ft)
BMW 430d (+20kW, +40Nm) / (+27hp, +30 lb-ft)
BMW 435i (+25kW, +50Nm) / (+34hp, +37 lb-ft)

• M Performance Exhaust system (available 428i and 435i) with chrome tailpipes or carbon fiber tips (for 435i)
• M Performance Limited-slip differential
• M Performance Suspension
• M Performance brakes (red, yellow or orange calipers)
• M Performance light alloy wheels
• 18-inch winter complete wheel sets in double-spoke design
• Black kidney grilles
• Rear diffuser
• Side sill foils with M Performance inscription,
• M Performance side stripes
• Carbon fiber front splitters
• Carbon fiber mirror caps
• Carbon fiber rear spoiler
• M Performance sports steering wheel with red central marking or Race • Display in 12 o'clock position
• Carbon fiber manual gear lever and handbrake handle with alcantara gaiter
• Carbon fiber gear selector switch of the automatic transmission
• Interior strips in carbon and alcantara
• High-grade steel pedals
• M Performance floor mats


Some notes from the show:


I was told by the ///M Performance brand manager at the IAA that the Performance seats will not be offered for the F3x cars. I told him that was strange, since I was told by one of the ///M guys at the 4er intro in Lisbon, Portugal - that in October(next month) BMW would offer them.

He had no explanation. So I guess we will have to see. But I don't think the seats will be coming since this is the second Performance car I've seen without them.

I also had an interesting conversation about Blackline tinted tail light lenes. Seems the EU laws have changed recently and BMW will not be offering Blacklines on its new models. It kind of sounded like a loop hole in the tail light laws has been changed here. So that was kind of a let down as well. He kind of made it sound like Blackline tail lights would stop soon doo to this EU law. ?

He did say that in February, 2014 that the LSD will start to be offered for sale thru the dealer network parts departments. No word on whether the LSD could be port installed after say an ED.

More Notes:

I was told at the IAA that ALL ///M Performance parts for the F30 and F32 will be available from any BMW dealer starting in February, 2014 onwards.

The power gains are the same for F30 and F32. Automatics make slightly more HP and TQ than manual cars because of clutch life with the manual cars.

-automatic transmission: increase in performance from 225 kW/400 Nm to 240 kW/450 Nm (in 6th gear: 400 Nm)
-manual transmission: increase in performance from 225 kW/400 Nm to 240 kW/430 Nm
-improved acceleration from 0-100 km/h: ~ -0.2 seconds compared to the standard
-improved elasticity from 80-120 km/h: ~ -0.3 seconds compared to the standard
-optimised accelerator alignment
-extremely sporty engine and exhaust system sound: ‘exhaust bubbling’
-retention of the quality and BMW's factory warranty.
-fuel consumption and CO2 emissions remain unchanged

pic number 60, is that a full CF trim on the front dash area?

Looks like that would be alcantara from other pics.

I always find that BMW under sizes their exhaust tips. Maybe it's just me.

I'm guessing most of that stuff will be pretty expensive and i can't understand who the target market is?

I would assume someone buying a base 428i non sport is more price sensitive so they wouldn't be the target buyer. The target buyer should be someone buying a 435i probably MSport who is an enthusiast. Wouldn't that buyer just get an M4 since a well equipped 435i MSport with M Performance parts will easily be above the base of an M4?

I like the orange calipers, the interior dashboard, front splitters, and the exhaust.

I like it but... This or an Alpina D3/B3... The latter looks a better bet, faster, comes ready made and is far more understated.

BMW should stop putting ///M badges from sides. ///M should stand for motorsport not marketing... Still believe an Akrapovic system is more desirable for me if i were to get a new 3 series coupe(can't say 4, sorry)

So many M components

That M3/M4 better be one hell of an engine. Doesn't seem to be much separating the M cars and the regular 3/4 series cars.
