    Newest F82 M4 spyphotos show off aggressive body work for the upcoming 2014 M4

    The new F82 M4 (it's still weird to say and BimmerBoost just can't get used to it) seems to be shaping up quite well. The F32 4-Series production design was recently leaked and the basic 4 just did not seem to have much of an aggressive look to it. Well, in comes the F82 M4 version of the 4-Series to remedy that and sure looks the part. The spyphotos below are the clearest yet of the upcoming 2014 M car showing it completing winter testing.

    The flared fenders are there as is the the more aggressive M style front bumper. The rear diffuser features quad exhaust pipes reminiscent of the E92 M3. The wheels appear large and fill out the fenders quite well. There are also some big brake discs hiding behind them. The car still has camo but it's starting to look the part thankfuly.

    Pics below.

    This car is going to be a looker. If they can hit their goal of e46 m3 weight it will be a winner.

    After briefly driving @akh23456 's M5, it's gonna be near impossible for me to ignore the new M3/M4 (regardless what BMW calls it, I know I'd rebadge it an M3). The interior was phenomenal (SOO many awesome gadgets), everything laid out where you'd want it & the car looked classy and aggressive at the same time.


    The M4's appearance is def starting to come into itself, just hope it's got the performance to back it up.

    High revving, no. Turbo? Yes.

    That's def a DCT-style knob

    BUT I think that might be an interior pick of an F3x M-Sport car, the speedometer only revs out 260 KPH (same as the F3x photo I've shared) and center console buttons are very similar):

    Here's an interior photo of the new M5/M6

    In the photo rppwm3 shared, there are no M-system (DCT/EDC) buttons around the gear shifter, where BMW has started to position them.

    3.0 I6 twin turbo most likely...i'm thinking the basic layout will be something like two of the 1.5l 3 cylinder turbo engines designed for the i8 put together with a single scroll and twin scroll turbo. The 3 cylinders are supposed to produce 225hp in the i8 so that puts it at around 450hp detuned or underrated to 415hp. Too bad that it will probably only rev to 6750rpm though.

    They look like they are being relocated to the drivers side and made slightly smaller maybe

    If you blow up the photo I attached, they look like the same buttons -- A backup sensor, the Sport/Eco modes (which are outlined in the aluminum/silver) and DTC buttons.


    Like I said, this is def more likely an M-Sport 3-series than the M3 interior.

    Just noticed this but does anyone know why the tach looks like it starts below 0 rpm? Could it be something to do with the electrically assisted turbo system that has been rumored?

    Word, it looks like that article is from August 2012, right before the F30 328/335 went on sale. Which really makes sense with how complete the interior looks in the pics.

    Did anyone notice that "real" handbrake in the interior shot? I still love those.

    That interior looks like complete $#@!. I know it is still early. But sorry that is a pathetic start.
