BMW offers the rear-wheel drive M4 in coupe and convertible configurations. Each style comes in one grade with numerous package upgrades available.
The 2018 M4 has a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline six-cylinder with an output of 425 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque paired up with a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, delivering an EPA-estimated 17 city miles per gallon and 25 highway.
Priced from $68,695 for the coupe and $77,195 for the convertible (prices include a $995 destination fee), each model comes well equipped.
Standard features include LED headlights, an aluminum hood with power dome, power-folding heated side mirrors, a sport exhaust system with quad exhaust tips, an active M differential and an adaptive sport suspension. The M4 has 18-inch alloy wheels set within performance tires. Interior features include 10-way power front sport seats, leather upholstery, an Anthracite headliner, dynamic cruise control, navigation, and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.
The coupe has a carbon fiber-reinforced-plastic roof; the convertible has a folding-metal top.
The M4 Coupe and Convertible offer eight standard colors. All except Alpine White carry a $550 charge. Four BMW Individual paint schemes are also available, costing $1,950 each. Buyers have a choice of five wheel designs, including two costing $1,200 and two more as part of a Competition Package upgrade.
Both models offer customers their choice of eight standard leather options (no charge or costing $950 or $3,500) and five BMW Individual leather upgrades for the dashboard, costing $3,500 each. Three standard trim choices are a no-cost upgrade. An additional three BMW Individual wood trims cost $1,080 each.
Package options include a $4,750 Competition Package ($4,250 in the convertible), raising performance to 444 horsepower and adding more aggressive driving modes to the stability control and rear differential, and special wheels. Both the coupe and the convertible offer a $2,100 Executive Package, adding full LED headlights, automatic headlamps, side and top view cameras, head-up display, and parking assistant.
Individual upgrades include wireless charging and a WiFi hotspot ($500), head-up display ($1,100), power rear sunshade ($350), and Apple CarPlay compatibility ($300). Performance options include M Carbon ceramic brakes ($8,150) and an M Driver’s Package ($2,500). Safety options include park distance control ($750), active blind spot detection ($500), and active driving assistant ($500).
BMW charges an $8,500 price premium for the convertible and that is a serious bite for a wind-in-your-hair driving experience. The coupe with the Competition Package and your favorite color will set you back by about $75,000 for a model that will take you from 0-60 mph in just under 4 seconds.
