In the weeks preceeding SoCal Euro 2015, we had a flurry of activity here in the ModAuto shop. Now that things have slowed down, we have had a chance to go through the photos to show you guys all the hard work we put in to have this F82 BMW M4 modded and show ready in time. Since this is a street-driven daily driver, like the vast majority of what we work on here, we didn’t do anything completely insane, but rather, focused on building a really badass-looking, unique and daily-driveable M4.
When it comes to high pressure projects that demand a lot of attention, Sr Mod Expert Alan Wei is always the man with the cool head that somehow always manages to make it all happen.
We’ll start with cutting out the stock exhaust- as you can see, we’d already installed a Performance Style Carbon Fiber Diffuser for F82 BMW M4 – but more on that later. We’ll be fitting a Remus Axle-Back Exhaust for F82 BMW M4 to give the S55 under the hood a sound befitting a monstrous german turbo straight six.
We’re huge fans of Remus Exhaust‘s trademark “Street Race” carbon fiber trimmed exhaust tips. These things are going to look BOSS on the M4. Alan recommended Quad 98mm CF Street Race tips for the perfect look for the M4.
Master Tech Dave and Assistant Juan made quick work of the install, but we weren’t done yet…
Yup, we had some Forgestar wheels lined up, but more on that later…
To give the front end a bit more of a unique, motorsports-inspired look, we installed a V1 Style Carbon Fiber Front Splitter for F82 BMW M4, then we installed OEM BMW Performance Gloss Black Kidney Grilles for BMW M4 and a set of BMW Performance Gloss Black Side Grilles for BMW M4 to match, and further cleaned up the front end with a set of BMW 2015+ F80 M3 and F82 M4 Painted Reflectors.
Sr Mod Expert Alan Wei set the M4 up with a custom fitment for their Forgestar wheels, setting up Gloss Gunmetal Forgestar F14 Wheels in 19×10 Super Deep Concave up front with a 19×11 Super Deep Concave at the rear for a meaty, aggressive look perfect for the F82.
When you fit a car with a set of aftermarket wheels, it’s only natural to give the suspension a drop as well – Alan suggested a set of H&R Sport Springs for 2014+ BMW M4 [F82] to pull off the drop they were after.
The H&R Sport Springs for the BMW M4 drop the car some 1.3in up front and 1.2in at the rear for a moderate drop that you’re definitely going to notice. Here’s how the H&R Springs look fitted into the front suspension.
Here’s a shot of the H&R Sport Springs installed in the rear suspension.
After we fitted the springs, at long last it was time to take the M4 off the rack to get a look and the end result.
The Carbon Fiber trim and Remus Logo compliments the carbon fiber diffuser beautifully.
Here’s a look at the overall aesthetic of the car. It’s definitely more aggressive than stock, yet somehow manages to be understated about it for a very classy look.
Up close, the details really stand out.
The profile of the car is sleek and stylish from every angle, managing to deliver on the visual promise of the original M4 show car concepts and then some.
The fitment of the Forgestars is spot on, no doubt thanks to Sr Mod Expert Alan Wei‘s experience with ///M car fitments.
Here’s another close-up so you can get a better look at the fitment – it’s perfectly within the wheel arch.
Down low, the front end looks incredibly menacing.
The 1.3in and 1.2in drop front and rear on the M4 with the H&R springs is definitely noticeable.
The rear end profile of the car with the massive 98mm street race tips is as aggressive as the front end.
As you probably saw in our SoCal Euro 2015 BMW coverage, we had this F82 BMW M4 completed and ready for showoff in time for SoCal Euro. Check out a few photos of this car on display.
