Without changing the grille.
The all-new 2021 BMW 4 Series Coupe has drawn a lot of attention since its reveal earlier this year, and from a design perspective, a lot of it hasn't been overly positive. The focus of that ire has been the large kidney grilles, though, with a little photoshop, we've seen that the 4 Series can be transformed into an attractive car. And now acclaimed BMW tuning house AC Schnitzer has worked its magic to make the 4 Series Coupe look a whole lot better.
AC Schnitzer announced that the first parts of its G22 4 Series product range are now available. Some are already available to order, while others are still in development.
The included photos show what the 4 Series will look like when AC Schnitzer's aerodynamics program finishes in February 2021. Many of the important parts seen on this lovely blue 4 Series currently available include 20-inch AC1 alloy wheels, a spring kit that lowers the car by 30 millimeters, sport suspension, and sport tailpipe tips (in chrome, black, or carbon). On the interior, AC Schnitzer offers aluminum shift paddles, a key holder, aluminum pedals, and an aluminum footrest.
By February of next year, AC Schnitzer will offer aerodynamic pieces for the exterior.
The car pictured here previews a front splitter (with or without a spoiler), rear roof spoiler, rear skirt protection foil, side skirts, and a carbon fiber rear spoiler. A stainless steel exhaust is also in development and will arrive on the market next year.
AC Schnitzer doesn't mention any power upgrades for the 430i or M440i, but says it will include a five-year warranty for both models. We expect that the tuner will eventually offer power upgrades for the 4 Series, bumping the output over the current 255 horsepower and 382 hp ratings. For now, we'll settle for making the 4 Series look better than stock.
