The 2016 BMW F82 M4 is a potent machine, no doubt about it. Although nearing the end of its production life, this generation of the M4 is still one of the best driver’s cars available on the market. It’s powered by a 3.0 Liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, delivering 425 horsepower and 486lb-ft of torque. Thanks to this powerful engine, an impressive DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission system) and near 50:50 weight distribution, the M4 is one of the best handling cars that money can buy. The BMW //M cars also attract a large aftermarket audience, as the owners of these vehicles are always looking for ways to improve their vehicles – both visually & performance wise.
This particular Alpine White BMW M4 ticks both the visual and performance boxes. The vehicle features a complete slip-on Akrapovic Titanium exhaust system. This system allows for an increase of 7.2 horsepower at 5400RPM and 12.3lb-ft of torque at 2350RPM. Additionally, the system weighs 6.6lbs (3.0kg) less than the stock system, removing excess weight from this high-performance machine as well. The much deeper sound note coming out of the quad carbon covered exhaust tips makes for a perfect performance upgrade.
Additionally, the vehicle features a set of PURE Stage 2 turbos. The development of these aftermarket turbos started back in 2014 when Pure Turbos bought an M4 and immediately began R&D to create what is known as the most powerful and refined turbo upgrade offering for the M4 available today. The company tested the setup, yielding a staggering 632 wheel horsepower and since have tweaked the turbos to offer customers the chance to go over 700 wheel horsepower with the BMW M3/M4 S55 engine. The owner of this vehicle reported a dyno run yielding 702 horsepower to the wheels – an amazing result for this platform – an increase of almost 300 horserpower when compared to the stock values.
With the added power, there comes a need for an upgraded clutch system. This BMW M4 features an SSP Spec R Clutch, providing the DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) system powering this vehicle with a much more optimized clutch solution that can handle the increase in horsepower and torque.
After the clutch was upgraded, the time came to add the aftermarket axles by Diversified Shaft Solutions. Basically, this is an upgrade that ensures that all the extra power and torque can be safely transferred to the rear wheels.
Additional performance items include the ER charge pipe, a CSF front mounted heat exchanger and a BootMod3 tune. If only by looking at the high-quality parts selection and the overall tuning direction taken, the owner of this white beast clearly knows what he’s doing.
To improve the handling, the owner installed a KW Suspension Variante3 coilover system. The V3 Coilover Kit from KW Suspension is a basically a race package that allows you to drive your new BMW M4 to its limits in just about every driving condition possible. With this system, the adjustable in both the front and rear. You’ll be able not only to adjust the ride height of your vehicle, but you’ll also be able to change compression and rebound dampening in order to make your coilover kit as aggressive or soft as you want within the V3’s parameters.
Finally, the visual upgrades came into play. The vehicle features an M-Performance front lip & splitters, joined by M-Performance carbon fiber mirror caps giving the M4’s Alpine White exterior paint finish a perfect accentuating look. Additionally, a set of Aeroflow Dynamics side skirts, a Vorsteiner rear diffuser and a PSM Dynamic V2 rear spoiler add another note of aggressive looks to this vehicle. Furthermore, the vehicle features a set of aftermarket lights and the MY2017 LCI (Life Cycle Impulse) taillights.
In order to complete the aggressive and refined aftermarket look, the owner decided for a set of our ADV10 M.V2 CS Series lightweight custom-made forged wheels. The CS Series line features individually vehicle load specifically optimized wheels via FEA Simulation Tests. This results in the lightest, best performing, and strongest wheels that can possibly be made for a certain application. The Competition Spec Series come standard with spoke cut-outs and lightweight titanium hardware, combined with backpad pocketing for further weight reduction. CS Series spokes have sharp, aggressive, and angular cuts making them a perfect match for vehicles like the M4 seen here. For this build, we’ve machined the wheels in sizes of 20×9.5 in the front and 20×11.5 in the rear.
To match the requirements set by the owner finish wise, we’ve added a gorgeous Brushed Red w/ Gloss Clear finish to the wheels, adding a striking contrasting touch against the Alpine White exterior of this vehicle. Finally, a 50/50 Exposed Titanium Hardware option is not only the perfect lightweight option but also breaks the color theme of the wheels, adding that perfect final detail to the wheels.
