This Austin Yellow BMW F82 M4 project by European Auto Source was started not so long ago.
The build kicked off with the installation of BMW M-Performance aero parts, a selection of high-quality carbon fiber aftermarket addons. Later stages of the build will also be throughouly documented, but at this time we will be showing you the aero parts installation and final result.
The list of aftermarket aero parts installed includes carbon fiber front splitters with matte lower splitter, carbon fiber mirror caps, carbon fiber rear diffuser, carbon Fiber rear spoiler and BMW M Performance side blade attachments. BMW M Performance Parts fulfill the high standards set by BMW and offer optimum quality for long-lasting durability. The premium materials in each component are precisely manufactured, rigorously tested and expertly configured for your specific BMW model to ensure the best results.
With M-Performance parts, the installation is seemless as these parts provide an excellent and easy way to get them installed.
“Having seen, handled and installed a lot of aftermarket parts, this has to be some of the best quality and designed pieces we’ve seen. All parts fit perfectly with the M4’s contours with no visible gaps, even for the most scrutinized types. Extra bonus on the M4 since there isn’t a spoiler requiring removal like M3 (and previous models). As with the previous E9X M3 Performance line, all parts are 2×2 carbon weave, with exception of the lower lip and side blade attachments – quite possibly since they are in the impact zone close to the road.” – EAS
The finished product is an impressive showcase of carbon fiber details and a beautiful OEM paint finish working together really well. This particular car was ordered with the DCT transmission from the factory together with the adaptive M suspension. After four years in development, the new BMW M4 graduated with BMW’s latest turbocharged engine a 3.0 liter six-cylinder unit that has replaced the fans’ darling, a howling V8 naturally aspirated powerplant. This actually means some downsizing was undertaken as the BMW E92 M3 featured a naturally aspirated V8 engine with a 4.0 liter displacement. The engine was producing 414 bhp (309 kW; 420 PS) at 8300 rpm, with peak torque of 295 lb·ft (400 Nm) at 3900 rpm which brought the car from 0 – 62mph in 4.6 seconds.
Additional options included a carbonconstructure cloth/leather seating and a carbon fiber interior trim as well, together with driver assistance plus, executive package and lighting package included.
