Swiss tuner Dähler has just unveiled their BMW X4 M40i project. The tuning project combines visual upgrades with the typical power kits which take BMW cars to a whole new level. Yet this is not your ordinary tuning project. Compared to other flashy projects, this one is based on the philosophy of less is more, while attempting to keep the looks of the car as close as possible to the factory one.

Therefore, Dähler included in this X4 a subtle aerodynamic kit composed of a front spoiler lip, a rear wing, side sill attachments, rear diffuser and a redesigned rear bumper. Even Dähler’s own 20/21-inch wheels aren’t that different from some the wheels offered by BMW. To further enhance the X4 M40i’s sportiness, a performance coil-over suspension system was added, as well as an 8-piston high-performance braking system with 400-millimeter disc brakes, and a stainless-steel exhaust system.
Inside the cabin you will find an Alcantara-covered center console and steering wheels, as well as data gauges that showcase the car’s performance data.
In the power department, the Swiss tuner offers three power kits, starting with a 400 PS (395 hp)/ 773 Nm (570 ft-lb), and followed by a 420 PS (414 hp)/ 786 Nm (580 ft-lb) upgrade. The top of the line offering is a 430 PS (424 hp) and 590 ft-lb (800 Nm) of torque. Enough to push the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds, all the way to a top speed of 270 km/h (168 mph).
In standard form, the X4 M40i produces 360 horsepower and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) of torque.
