A new kit comes courtesy of Zacoe.
When the current generation of BMW M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe first showed their faces, fans were taken aback by their bold styling. Both cars feature BMW's controversial new grilles that have had the internet in a tailspin since it was first revealed to the public. The look has grown on most fans by now, but as always, there are those that think they can improve upon the design. Lots of aftermarket tuners have had their turn turning those ugly ducklings into Bavarian swans, including legendary BMW tuner AC Schnitzer, but we think we've just found the best body kit yet, and it's from Zacoe.
The aftermarket tuning shop keeps itself busy designing styling bits for newer model BMWs, including the F9X M8 and G06 BMW X6, but it has clearly struck gold with these two M cars. The kit looks just right on the M3 and M4 and isn't as aggressive as many other tuners go, but we still wouldn't call it OEM plus. According to Zacoe, these kits have been crafted with more than just good looks in mind; they have been created to provide actual downforce at the rear to increase stability at higher speeds. The front-end of these BMWs gets treated to an aggressive carbon-fiber lip spoiler that accentuates the bold grille and front intakes. Down the side, Zacoe has opted for a set of deep skirt extensions that do a great job of rounding off the side profile of both cars. At the rear, you'll find a custom trunk lid spoiler and a massive touring-car-style wing.
Pricing is not available, but don't expect any bargains. Alternatively, BMW has developed its own series of aero bits and pieces for the M3 and M4, but they grab the attention of passersby in an arguably more offensive manner, especially when those onlookers spot that unique center-mounted exhaust system. The M3 and M4 have the right to look this badass. With a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged straight-six engine under the hood producing a base figure of 473 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque, these cars will get to 60 mph in under four seconds, and delimited will reach a top speed of 180 mph. At those speeds, the real body kits are separated from the ricer crap.
