If you were to forget the truly absurd price of the BMW M4 GTS, the hardcore M division product could be considered an impressive sports car. However, with its price rivaling that of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, it simply doesn’t make sense to anyone but the BMW faithful.

Fortunately for those in the market for a two-door, German sports car wanting more performance than a standard M4, the recently-released CS is a new option.

Designed to slot between the M4 Competition and the M4 GTS, the M4 CS delivers 454 hp from its twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine and features numerous suspension tweaks and weight-saving measures to distinguish itself from lesser variants. Are these modifications enough to allow it to rival the mighty Porsche 911 GTS?

Jonny Lieberman and Jethro Bovingdon from Motor Trend headed to Germany to pit the two against each other. In the process, the duo tackled the Autobahn and Nurburgring to fully explore what these two sports cars are capable of.

Which do you think will come out victorious?

Marc Marquez Wins BMW M4 CS As MotoGP’s Best Qualifier 15

For the fifth year in a row, MotoGP maestro Marc Marquez has walked away with the annual BMW M Award, this year taking the form of a limited-edition M4 CS.

The award is given to the sport’s best qualifier and Marquez first walked away with the award in 2013, receiving the keys of a satin black M6 Coupe. The following year, he was awarded a red M4, in 2015 the Spaniard was given an M6 Convertible, and last year he secured an M2.

In the recently-concluded 2017 season, Marquez claimed eight pole positions and is unquestionably the best qualifier in the field.

BMW first unveiled the potent M4 CS in April and confirmed that production will be capped at 3,000 units. Marquez’s example is painted in San Marino Blue metallic, and in our opinion, is the best-looking BMW in his burgeoning collection.

Changes made to the M4 CS compared to the ‘regular’ M4 include a tweaked 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six engine, now delivering 454 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the car includes a range of weight saving and aerodynamic-focused parts, including a new carbon fiber rear diffuser, front splitter and trunklid spoiler. The car can lap the Nurburgring in 7 min and 36 seconds.

BMW M Teaches Us How To Drift 9

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in BMW, BMW M, BMW M4, BMW Videos, drifting, video on 11 9th, 2017


In case you didn’t know what BMW M drivers love most about their cars, the Bavarian sub-brand is more than willing to provide us with a reminder.

It all starts with turning the DSC off, which you press and hold for 3-4 seconds until the car indicates that the system has been disabled.

Next, once you initiate the drift (at 15-20 km/h or up to 12 mph ), BMW M recommends using the second gear, especially if you’re driving an M3 or an M4, in order to use the torque properly. By the way, to start the slide, you only need to give the accelerator a quick tap if you’re already on a slippery surface.

The BMW M instructor also explains how it’s very important to take your foot off the accelerator immediately after the rear of the car has stepped out. This is a common mistake for some people, as they forget to lift off once the drift has been initiated, applying continuous power.

The rest of the video is pretty straight forward, extremely informative and detailed. It’s a good tutorial, and we recommend it to anybody who’s looking to learn how to drift their car – preferably in a safe and non-populated area.

Nardo Grey BMW M4 Looks Better Than You’d Imagine 6

Posted by Brad Anderson in BMW, BMW M4, tuning on 11 6th, 2017


Nardo Grey is typically reserved for high-performance models from Audi but this BMW M4 proves that Audi’s fiercest rival can also pull off this paint scheme faultlessly.

This particular M4 resides in California and since leaving the factory in Nardo Grey, has been customized with a plethora of aftermarket parts, making it look even more menacing than the M4 GTS.

Perhaps the most significant modification are the spectacular BBS FI-R wheels, measuring 20×9.5 at the front and 20×10.5 at the rear. Priced at roughly $2,000 per wheel, they certainly aren’t cheap, but they do play a key role in transforming the look of the sports car.

Elsewhere, the car has been equipped with bright yellow Brembo brake calipers, an APR Performance carbon fiber front splitter, BMW M Performance carbon trunklid spoiler, RKP GTS rear wing and a carbon fiber diffuser from Kohlenstoff. Although these parts come from a host of different manufacturers, they work in harmony to create what is surely one of the most menacing M4’s on U.S. roads.

Take A POV Test Drive In The 460BHP BMW M4 CS 3

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in BMW, BMW M4, BMW Videos, reviews, video on 11 3rd, 2017


Lean back and enjoy the next eight minutes watching a BMW M4 CS driven on public roads, with the occasional throttle punishing.

Designed as the mid-range version of the M4 Coupe family, the CS slots between the M4 Competition Package and M4 GTS.

On the styling front, it’s more aggressive than your average M4, but not as daring as the GTS, although it was slightly inspired by the latter, as it benefits from a number of weight saving elements, made from CFRP, which work together to save 32kg (71lbs) over the regular car.

Motivation comes from the familiar 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six engine that’s was massaged to feed an additional 29PS (29hp) and 50Nm (37lb-ft) of torque to the wheels, raising the total output to 460PS (454hp) and 600Nm (442lb-ft) of torque.

Thanks to this configuration, which uses a standard 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, the BMW M4 CS needs just 3.9sec from 0-100km/h (62mph), before reaching a limited top speed of 278km/h (174mph).

And if you’re still not convinced whether it’s actually worth it, then perhaps the fact that it lapped the Nurburgring just as fast as the Porsche 991 Carrera S, in 7 minutes and 38 seconds, should make you look at it with an open mind.
