The first step consisted of adding a matte (frozen) grey wrap which accentuates the body lines and the sporty design. The next step revolved around adding a series of carbon fiber parts to the X4 – front spoiler, side mirror caps, diffuser and a rear spoiler.
A set of custom wheels were designed for the X4 as well, 21 inches in size with 245/35 front and 265/30 rear Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. To improve the ride quality and the car’s dynamics, a 30 mm lowering spring kit by Bilstein was added.
Black Alcantara with double contrast stitching can be found inside the cabin along with aftermarket parts like an aluminum pedal set, velour floor mats and an auxiliary display which has replaced the central-left air vent.
Power has been increased also. The 3.0 liter turbocharged diesel now outputs 365 horsepower and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft), from the stock 313 hp and 630 Nm (464 lb-ft). A stage 2 kit will bump output to 375 hp and 700 Nm (517 lb-ft). Top speed is 74 mph (280 km/h).
Lightweight is selling this X4 for 88,000 euros.
