First I’ll answer the question that you asked directly: No, the BMW Concept 4 is not the replacement to the 4 Series. It is merely a concept car, rather than a production, as the name suggests. Now to answer the question which I think you were trying to ask (Is the BMW Concept 4 an indication of what to expect in the next BMW 4 Series?): ABSOLUTELY! The purpose of the Concept 4 is to showcase the design language of the upcoming 4 Series, although it wasn’t necessary as we all know that the 4 Series will be a blend of the 3 Series and the 8 Series visually. There are a few things on the Concept 4 that will definitely be absent in the next 4 Series. Firstly, the Kidney Grille (more like the Lung Grille if you ask me). It will definitely go down in size to resemble that of the 3 Series, albeit slightly shorter and wider to accentuate it’s coupe credentials. The thin headlights on the Concept will be tossed too. As much as I believe that the 4 Series will have narrower headlights than it’s 3 Series sibling, they will be modeled after the 8 Series’ design rather that be taken straight out of the Concept 4. To round up the front of the car, the bumper on the 4 Series will get a cosmetic nip/tuck as well. I suspect the 4 Series will have the M-Sport package as standard, which means is front bumper will not look any different to that of the 3 Series with an M-Sport package fitted on. Moving on to the side of the car, there isn’t much to talk about here other than to say we should expect the design of he side profile on the production 4 Series to look exactly like that of the Concept 4. I expect this rim design to be available as well, as it is directly pulled out of the 8 Series. The side mirrors and the door handles will definitely change to the more normal design in the 3 Series. BMW would rather dig into the parts bin for these items rather than spend the extra Euro on designing completely new ones for a car that already shares a platform with its best selling model ever. Ah, the rear. Expect a ton of changes here. First the rear bootlid will definitely be less angular. Expect a carbon-copy of the 8 Series boot lid. Secondly, the rear lights. That’s obvious. I expect them to be replaced for a more modest light that is more straightedge rather than angular, as it is on the Concept. I expect BMW to make the rear lights resemble those on the X4, as they look slightly sleeker on the inside edges instead of the more square angles on the 3 Series lights. However BMW might just tack on the 3 Series to manage costs, which is not a problem to me, or they might just surprise us and put the 8 Series lights on there, which would be awesome! Let’s wait and see on this one. The rear bumper and the exhaust tips will definitely be chucked in favor of the G20 3 Series M-Sport package bumper. Don’t expect those trapezoidal exhaust tips either, and expect a much smaller rear diffuser, if any. Side note: the rear diffuser on the Concept 4, along with the huge air intakes on the front bumper may be a signal of what to expect on the inevitable M3/M4. Just imagine all the changes that I suggested will be made for the production car, then add a dome on the bonnet, carbon fiber roof and quad tailpipes and lots of M-badges and there’s your M4.
Well, yes and no. Its called BMW Active Sound. I'm relieved to say that it is not FAKE, per say. I found this at ,http://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=893548,: But, the ,good news, is that we've confirmed with BMW Germany that it's a live amplification of the S55 engine's natural sounds. There is no artificially generated sound or pre-recorded track being played. This sound amplification takes place through the M3/M4/s stereo speakers. I suppose the rationale is that given that an M5 is supposed to be the ultimate luxury sedan ,and ,the ultimate hot-shit sport sedan at the same time. So, when you are tired of being a hot-shit sportscar driver you could turn down the noise while you are on the way to the opera with your international super-model wife. Of course, its physically not possible (and not just because of the wife) to turn a knob and reduce noise. What ,is ,possible is to engineer out a lot of the noise and then turn a knob and ,add ,the noise back in. Gratuitous photo of the M5 power plant. Nom nom nom. Personally, I think someone got lost in hypothetic-ville. For those interested in the ,best, most glorious possible, description of what Active Sound is, here is BMWs press release on the subject (from the same site): Active Sound Design delivers precise feedback. M5 drivers will be given an even more direct reminder of their car’s performance capability by technology that brings the distinctive sound of the high-performance V8 – in all its glory – into the cabin of the new BMW M5. The Active Sound Design technology specially developed for the new BMW M5 takes its cues from the driving situation at any one time to deliver an accurate reproduction of the engine’s sound through the car’s audio system. The system’s digital signal processing exchanges data directly with the engine management, allowing it to reflect the engine’s revs and torque, and the car’s speed over the road. The result over a smoothly driven journey is a discreet soundtrack in keeping with the harmonious and assured characteristics of the V8 powerplant. A stamp on the accelerator, meanwhile, prompts an immediate audible response to match the instantaneous – and typically M – burst of power from beneath the bonnet. In generating its signals, Active Sound Design takes its cues from the firing sequence of the eight-cylinder engine and the frequency range of the exhaust system. This gives the driver an extremely accurate impression of current engine load and an even more intense sensation of the V8’s high-performance characteristics. At the same time the Active Sound Design control unit ensures an even spread of sound across all five seats of the new BMW M5, while observing the legal guidelines governing noise emissions inside and outside the car. The characteristics of the sound produced by the technology also adjust to the engine settings selected by the driver. For example, switching to “Sport” or “Sport+” mode sharpens not only the engine’s responsiveness but also the acoustic experience inside the car. Here's a video with it on and with it off: I still <3 BMW.
M Sport is a package, M is a series. 440i M Sport means that the car is a 440i and has the additional package, which mostly includes cosmetic updates (exterior and interior) to make your car ‘look’ sporty. Occassionally, the package may have performance upgrades like better suspension, spoilers, splitters, diffusers and upgraded exhausts that may actually marginally affect the handling dynamics of the car. M4 on the other hand for example, is an M series car. It uses the same base platform as the 4 series but after that is built ground up to be a sports car. It looks much sportier, is wider, lower, handles better and is faster. Most parts for an M4 are developed and fine tuned by BMW’s Motorsport division. An M car is also considerably more expensive. So to summarize, M Sport is a package you add to a regular 2/3/4… series car mostly make your car look sportier. An M car is the full blown sports car.
Hello, M 4 MAYHEM EVERYONE HAS A FAVORITE RIGHT? WELL, THE BMW M4 HAS TO BE ONE OF MY FAVORITE CARS CURRENTLY ON SALE IN INDIA. A COUPLE OF WEEKS BACK, I HAVE SPENT A GOOD 5 DAYS DRIVING THE M4 IN AND AROUND DELHI. HERE IS A DAY BY DAY ACCOUNT OF THE SAME! Day 1 It’s a Wednesday. It has been quite a boring week so far to be honest. Haven’t really got anything interesting to drive from the last 2 weeks. I get a call from Gaurav (PR for BMW India) telling me that the M4 was available for a review over the weekend. As soon as I reach BMW’s office in Gurgaon, it starts to rain like cats and dogs which can be a bit concerning when you have a really powerful german sportscar at your disposal- and that too in the nerving traffic of Gurgaon. Post getting the car out of the parking lot, I changed the suspension and steering settings to Comfort mode and the gearbox into efficient mode-which eased up things a bit. And when I say ‘a bit’- I mean it. Even in its most relaxed self, the M4 just doesn’t wanna sober up. Once I reached the Delhi- Gurgaon highway, I was being extra cautious as it was pouring plus I was getting accustomed to the controls, dimensions and the ground clearance of the car. No real hard driving on Day 1 or any hero moments, just getting used to the car. Day 2 We had planned an early morning shoot for obvious reasons(sportscars in India are crowd magnets) but the rain gods were not on our side again. The M4 still remains parked quietly in the parking lot throughout the day waiting for the sun and the traffic to settle down. It must be around 11 PM when I started off from North Delhi. The plan was to do a good 50-60kms on the Outer Ring Road which had just been broadened with loads of new flyovers and of course fresh tarmac. Alright then, suspension, steering and gearbox in sport mode- the exhaust note has gotten a bit louder(more on this later). Hardly 10kms later, the M4 has started inspiring loads of confidence- the stiff suspension, hard steering is suddenly reminding me of my Go-Kart days. Everything is razor sharp- the steering, gearbox are always urging to be pushed to their limits which I sadly cant on public roads. Day 3 A couple of years back I had briefly driven the E90 M3 which came with the bigger 4.0-litre V8 oil burner. This one is powered by a smaller 3.0-litre turbocharged motor.Now purists will argue day in and day out about how that car had more character than the new F30 variants but to be really honest, you blindfold them and put them in the F30s and there is a very high possibility of them mistaking one some the another. The ONLY giveaway can be the exhaust note in which of course is affected by the engine displacement and cylinders. BMW has taken care of that as well( the speakers can imitate the exhaust notes). We have to accept the fact engine capacities will be smaller and smaller in the future(gotta save them melting glaciers as well) and the turbo wizardry is getting better by the day which means that turbocharged cars are both- faster and more efficient than before. The M4 has a twin-turbo setup- which as the name suggests is pretty simple- two turbos working in tandem ensuring smoother power delivery. Talking about power, the M4 has 431bhp of power and 550Nm of torque at its disposal. All of it goes down to the rear wheels via a 7-speed DCT gearbox. According to BMW, the M4 accelerates from 0-100kmph in just 4.1 seconds and goes all the way upto a limited top speed of 250kmph. During our test, we managed a respectable 4.3-second figure(the roads were wet and the rear tyres were not in the best of shape). Day 4 Straight line power is impressive, no major complaints there (apart from the wheelspins during a launch). What really stood out for me personally(again comparing with the old M3) is that the M4 feels very brisk on its toes as it only weighs 1,500kg, thanks to the extensive usage of lightweight materials(the roof is made out of carbon-fibre). This has not only improved the overall performance but also the fuel-efficiency which is now up by almost 25 percent. You wouldn’t really wanna bother yourself with the efficiency figures on an M4 but if you drive it sanely( gearbox in efficient, suspension and steering in comfort)- you can achieve some really respectable fuel figures ( I managed up to 12 kmpl on an empty stretch)! Day 5 Now it’s time to return the M4. One of the toughest part of being in this profession is the fact that we have to let go of such beauties after a few days. It has been a fun week with the M4 and I can safely say that the M4 still remains to be the best sports coupe on sale in India currently. Sadly, our market doesn’t get the M2 (M4’s cheaper and more fun younger sibling). If I had around Rs. 1.3 cr to spend on a car, the M4 would be the definite choice!

There are tuners and there are ,tuners,…some simply provide some aftermarket parts, others evolve into their own OEMs…or are absorbed by an OEM…in the end, it is about performance and a bespoke vehicle… Audi Sport (formerly quattro GmbH) - In-house performance “Audi as we know it is still a relative newcomer to the luxury market. Mercedes can trace its lineage back to (arguably) ,the first gasoline-powered car ever,, the companies that became BMW were building aircraft engines and motorcycles well before World War I, and while Audi can trace its roots back as far as 1910, its lineage isn’t so clear cut. After founder August Horch was kept from naming a car after himself (he had already founded and left an eponymous company), he named his second company Audi, or “to hear” in Latin (Horch means hear in German). Audi was acquired by DKW in 1928, and in 1932, was absorbed with its parent company, the original Horch brand, and Wanderer into Auto Union – hence the four rings logo Audi still uses today. After World War II, Auto Union largely stuck to building small, front-wheel drive cars with two-stroke engines. In 1958, Mercedes-Benz acquired the company, but it proved to be unprofitable, and in 1964 it sold the company to Volkswagen. While the company was still officially called Auto Union, Volkswagen launched a new sedan called The Audi in 1965, making it the first car to wear the badge in nearly 30 years. But while Audis had developed a reputation for being popular mid-market cars, they largely lacked excitement. So in 1977, Audi engineer Jörg Bensinger proposed that Audi begin work on a rally-minded halo car for the brand, a sentiment echoed by chief engineer (and later VW Auto Group chief) Ferdinand Piëch. In the late 1960s, several European countries created a joint program calling for a light military vehicle that could be used by several different nations across the continent. Known as the Europa Jeep program, Volkswagen threw itself into the project, creating both the Type 181 (better known in the U.S. as The Thing), and later the Type 183, or Iltis. While the 181 shared much of its mechanicals with aging air-cooled Volkswagen models, the Iltis was incredibly advanced. Audi had been enlisted to design its powertrain and suspension, and its team developed an incredibly capable, compact, and reliable four-wheel drive system. During winter testing, Audi engineers found that the 1.7 liter Iltis and its powertrain could outperform any other vehicle in snow. If it could produce a sports car with this technology, it would be unlike anything the world had ever seen. Largely based on the Audi 80 Coupe, Audi unveiled the Quattro at the 1980 Geneva Motor Show, and went on sale shortly thereafter. Originally powered by a 2.1 liter inline five that put out 197 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque, it would’ve been otherwise unremarkable if it weren’t for its remarkable four-wheel drive system, now modified with an ingeniously-packaged center differential. With power going to all four wheels, zero to 60 came in 7.1 seconds, and top speed was an impressive 143 miles per hour, rain or shine. The Quattro became a bona-fide legend in 1981 when it was entered in the World Rally Championship, making it the first four-wheel drive car to do so. Audi dominated the sport in 1981, and when Group B regulations went into effect in 1982, it only did better, winning again in ’82 and ’84. The original Quattro racer benefitted from a turbocharger cranking out 300 horsepower, but by the time the no-holds-barred Group B era began, it was cranking out 350. The rally success of the Quattro was an instant boon for Audi. As its lineup evolved into streamlined, tech-laden sedans that could finally begin to compete with BMW and Mercedes, the Quattro’s legend loomed large enough where it projected performance pedigree on anything with four rings on its grille. An era-defining rounded styling language came to the Audi lineup for 1995, all but erasing its sales problems in the U.S. market, and finally establishing it as the third equal player in Germany’s premium auto industry. Today, the Ur-Quattro is known as the most important model in Audi history, both by fans and by the brand itself. The Audi name may have been around for 106 years, but the brand as we know it was born just 36 years ago and raised in some of the most punishing terrain in the world.” Quattro: How This Car Made Audi What it is Today Audi Sport GmbH (formerly quattro GmbH) Audi ABT - Performance Tuner “ABT started in 1896 in Kempten, Germany. They focused on performance in 1967 working with Abarth. In 1978, VW launches the Golf. ABT will be one of the leading car-tuning companies. ABT team’s double triumph at the “Trophée l’Avenir“ touring car series. By 2000, as the STW era concludes, the greatest motorsport adventure begins for ABT Sportsline: the squad moves up to the DTM as private team and brings four in-house designed and built Abt-Audi TT-R cars to the grid. The tuning business grows constantly year for year: ABT Sportsline GmbH employs some 200 people, is represented in almost 70 countries spread across all five continents and to this day is the world’s largest tuner of vehicles for the Audi, VW, Seat and Škoda brands. When it comes to engine technology, aerodynamics, sports wheels, exhaust systems, suspension or brakes: Constant improvement, setting new goals, winning – this is our motivation, both on the racetrack and in the development of intelligent tuning components for street use. That is our philosophy, not just empty theory, but the result of decades in the hard school of international motorsport. This unique competence and experience, in addition to intensive cooperation with the technological leaders Audi and VW, will keep us moving in the future as well.” History Honorable mention: APR ECS Tuning OEM / Performance / Maintenance / Repair / Replacement Parts and kits for Audi, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Mini, Porsche and Volkswagen BMW M Series - In-house performance “M division was founded in May 1972 with 35 employees to supplement BMW's road car portfolio with specially enhanced models. By 1988, the company had grown to 400 employees and swiftly became a fundamental part of BMW’s market presence. BMW Motorsport GmbH is the subsidiary high-performance branch within BMW that you’ve no doubt seen on rear bumpers and side doors innumerable times. The in-house tuning division makes Autobahn-ready BMWs for public purchase (though it wasn’t always like this). Originally founded in 1972 to aid BMW’s racing program, the M division (m = motorsports) transitioned into a performance division for creating commercial vehicles available to the general public in the 1990s. There are currently nine official M-cars in production (M2, M3, M4, M5, M6, X3M, X4M, X55, X6M) 11 M Performance models (diesel cars produced by M) and two M badge models, which are cars tuned by the M division, but not official M models.” Aftermarket Autos: The 15 Best In-House Car Tuning Brands BMW Alpina - Performance tuner/OEM “Alpina dates back to the early 1960s, after craftsman Burkhard Bovensiepen decided not to enter the family business of manufacturing typewriters, but instead start a business of enhancing BMW products. The catalyst for the founding of the company was the introduction of the BMW's "New Class" of sedan, the boxy, 80-horsepower 1500. For the sake of added performance, Bovensiepen fitted a 1500 with a Weber twin carburetor, giving it a 15 percent boost in horsepower. By the time Bovensiepen's 1500 was modified, it was nearly as powerful as the newly introduced BMW 1800—attracting the attention of BMW, which began to officially certify Bovensiepen's creations with the company warranty in 1964. Ever the devoted son, Bovensiepen ensured that the name of the family typewriter business, Alpina, lived on when his company formed in 1965. The establishment of Alpina predated the 1972 creation of BMW's in-house M division. The major difference between the two tuning powerhouses, according to BMW? "The relationship between Alpina and BMW has developed over the years from Alpina buying complete cars from BMW and changing original parts to Alpina to nowadays, where Alpina is involved in projects and the early development process." Think of Alpina as M's gran turismo foil.” A Brief History of Legendary BMW Tuning House Alpina ALPINA Automobiles Honorable mention: We Review the Best BMW Tuners to Maximize Performance Daimler Mercedes AMG - In-house performance; former independent tuner “Over 50 years ago, a unique company arose as a result of an overwhelming passion for motorsports. A as in Aufrecht, M as in Melcher and G as in Großaspach: the names behind these three letters were the starting point for the rapid development from a two-man operation to a global brand. The story starts in the 1960s: the two engineers, Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher, were working on the 300 SE racing engine in the Development Department at Daimler-Benz until the company discontinued all motorsports activities. Yet the hearts of Aufrecht and Melcher beat unabated for motorsports. In Aufrecht’s house in Grossaspach, they spent their spare time further honing the performance of the engine. In 1965, Manfred Schiek, a colleague at Daimler, went to the start in the German Touring Car Championship with the 300 SE engine that Aufrecht and Melcher had developed, and won ten times! Schiek’s triumph formed the foundation of Aufrecht and Melcher’s reputation as experts for sustaining and optimizing the performance of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Reputation was not enough for Aufrecht, however: his vision was to offer road vehicles modeled after the successful racing car. In late 1966 he left Mercedes-Benz and persuaded Melcher to venture into a shared business with him. In 1967, they founded the “Aufrecht Melcher Großaspach Ingenieurbüro, Konstruktion und Versuch zur Entwicklung von Rennmotoren” (“Aufrecht Melcher Großaspach engineering firm, design and testing for the development of racing engines"). The headquarters were a former mill in the nearby municipality of Burgstall. Very quickly, the engines that were revamped there became a must for private racing teams. The first milestone in terms of racing was in 1971 during the 24 Hours of Spa, which went down in the annals of the company: the AMG Mercedes 300 SEL 6.8 was the champion in its class and won second place overall. A heavy luxury sedan pulling a fast one on the competing lighter race cars. It caused a sensation, and the name AMG spread throughout the world. In 1976, Mercedes-AMG, together with about a dozen employees, moved to a purpose-built workshop and office space in Affalterbach. AMG became an engine manufacturer in 1984 due to an innovation: Melcher developed a completely independent cylinder head with four valves per cylinder. In 1986, AMG implanted the 5.0-liter V8 in an E-class coupe, which received worldwide fame under the nickname “The Hammer”. To this day, this is a primary icon of the AMG myth in the United States. In the late 1980s, Daimler-Benz and AMG started to work together; first as official racing partners. The highlight of this period is the success story of the 190. The racecar, which was entered into the race by AMG with the support of the manufacturer, won a total of 50 DTM victories between 1988 and 1993. The year 1990 – when the cooperation contract was concluded with Daimler-Benz AG – represents a true milestone in AMG history. Demand and customer acceptance were given a tremendous boost now that AMG products could be sold and maintained through Mercedes-Benz' worldwide network of company-owned sales and service outlets and dealerships. Further expansion led to the opening of a third plant in 1990 and an increase in the workforce to 400 employees. In 1993, the company unveiled the Mercedes-Benz C 36 AMG, the first jointly developed vehicle to result from the cooperation agreement. In another development the same year, the Patent Office recognized AMG as a trademark as the name was now so well known. Hans Werner Aufrecht transferred a majority stake in the steadily growing company to DaimlerChrysler AG on January 1, 1999. On January 1, 2005 DaimlerChrysler acquired 100 per cent of the shares. This allowed the newly founded Mercedes‑AMG GmbH to benefit to an even greater extent from the Group's resources and global standing. In 1999 as well, the motorsport department was transferred to company founder Hans Werner Aufrecht's firm, H.W.A. GmbH (now H.W.A. AG). Located in close proximity to Mercedes‑AMG GmbH, some 200 employees now work there together with Mercedes-Benz Motorsport to manage the two companies' long-standing involvement in the German Touring Car Championship (DTM).” AMG - The History Daimler Mercedes Brabus - Performance Tuner/OEM “Now with several factories and headquartered in Bottrop, Germany, Brabus was founded by Bodo Buschmann and Klaus Brackman in 1977 – the company name being an amalgamation of the first three letters of their surnames. Brackman soon bowed out of the business but Buschmann remains as Brabus’ CEO to this day. Like AMG, Brabus initially focussed on Mercedes-Benz engine tuning, but before long branched out into aftermarket parts such as wheels, exhausts, brakes, suspension, body kits, multi-media systems and full custom interiors. Customers can either take their car to Brabus to have it modified according to their spec, or order a car to be built from new. ,So comprehensive is the company’s work that, like Alpina, in the 1990s Brabus was registered by Germany’s transport ministry as a car manufacturer in its own right, so complete Brabus-built cars are branded and registered as Brabuses.” “BRABUS was founded by Bodo Buschmann in 1977 and over the past four decades has grown into the world’s largest independent automotive tuner with a workforce of about 450 employees in Germany and 2,500 employees around the world. After the death of the company founder in April 2018, his son Constantin Buschmann took over the management of BRABUS GROUP as CEO. You can rely on our vintage cars as well. At BRABUS, we expanded our hobby into a line of business; We use our automotive expertise from more than 40 years to restore classic vehicles of the Mercedes-Benz brand in our very special way – back to new condition. We call this a "Six-Star Restoration“ and many of the oldies from BRABUS Classic offer at least the same high quality as they once did in their "first life" straight from the factory.” 40 years of automotive masterpieces Honorable Mention: Kahn Mansory The Modifiers: Brabus, Kahn, Masonry and Onyx - from JBR Capital
