Here is the first non-M3/M4 vehicle featuring the new Austin Yellow color. Introduced as the launch color for the BMW M4 Coupe, Austin Yellow was now spotted on a BMW 318d near the BMW plant in Leipzig.

The 318d seems to be a base model F30 with the Sport Line.

With its 143-hp four-cylinder diesel, the BMW 318d has less than half the power of an M3/M4 with a the sprint from 0 to 100 in a whooping 9.0 seconds, more than twice as long as the 425 hp BMW M3 F80.


On the other hand, the diesel offers top fuel consumption which makes it a great daily driver.
