Earlier today, we saw what sort of M Performance Parts would soon be available for the BMW 440i Gran Coupe. The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is a big favorite among BMW enthusiasts, as it sports typical 4 Series handling and dynamics, along with added practicality. It’s hard not to love that. So when BMW M Performance Parts get slapped on, us Bimmer fans get even more excited about it. While BMW unveiled the parts it’d be releasing for the 440i Gran Coupe earlier, we were live at SEMA and are bringing you some new photos to show what it looks like in person.
Under the desert sun of Las Vegas, the BMW 440i Gran Coupe looked stunning, showing off its new aggressive side. From the front, the carbon fiber lower front lip looks mean, almost M-like. While it’s just a BMW 440i, this specific car has the mug of a proper M car.
Out back, the carbon fiber rear spoiler looks excellent, almost continuing the upward curve of the sweeping roofline. It’s a perfect addition to the rump of the 440i GC. Also, the rear diffuser and carbon-tipped M Performance exhausts look great, adding some much-needed aggression.
I think the biggest visual upgrade, though, has to be its wheels. The 21″ black and silver wheels look really quite good, making the 440i Gran Coupe look even more expensive and premium than it is. While 21″ wheels might make the ride a bit too harsh, they sure do look cool.
Inside, the BMW 440i Gran Coupe M Performance gets BMW’s new Display Wheel II and a carbon fiber shift lever. Those give the cabim a racier look, something more M-like. However, the specific car we were looking at had its interior upgraded by BMW Individual as well. So it wore Golden Brown Merino leather with white piping and stitching.
This specific car also had the BMW M Performance Power Kit, which bumps power from 335 hp to 355 hp and torque is up from 332 lb-ft of torque to 369 lb-ft. So it gets aproper performance upgrade and should help make it significantly quicker.
We really enjoyed the BMW 440i Gran Coupe M Performance at SEMA. It was a real stunner that turned heads with its color, its upgrades and its presence.
