    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    I'm sorry, but a wing with thin metal uprights and endplates works fine on a 911 because of its turtle like silhouette that tumbles down dramatically towards the rear bumper ...but on a classic " three box " silhouette sedan or coupe with its horizontal trunk....it will look to anyone who is  not a sporty-car board denizen like it is owned and modded  by a 16 year old 

    ( what's worse , I see these type of wings quite often , almost exclusively on cars like ratty 20 yr old Honda Accords driven in the " barrio " areas here in California ) 

    it would have been better to incorporate a tall wing into a body colored molded uprights ...you know ...like the one on the iconic first M3 : 

     


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    No different than the AMG Black Series. Neither was designed for a wing like that but if you want to add downforce, your options are limited. A lip spoiler won't cut it. yes

    Will this BMW have digital or analogue sound poseur system? smiley Those wheels look right off a 70s pontiac firebird'angry


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    Looks like shit and probably costs a small fortune. Won't be that high of performance, even with that fancy wing.

    Digital is standard equip, but can be disconnected. Smiley


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    BMW is dead to me. All their latest and greatest disappoints. It seems they are going for the red light racer boys... sad but there's still AMG, with sleeker design and cooler engines.

    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    WHERE ARE ALL THE CONSPIRACY THEORY GUYS? 7.28 with same power/weight than giulia but even 11seconds faster (NOT PROVEN YET) and faster than GT3 blablalbalalblala ..



    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    seems that 500 HP , the latest Tire-technology and a NBR specific set up brings those times in These days.....do we know the Price already ? same category as a RS too ? to my eyes still only a pimped 3 series - nothing desirable

    here is my consipracy : nobody except BMW will be able to replicate this time - ever Smiley


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    found price tag GBP 121k mail


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    which will be in CHF easily 200k - given the not so favorable tests for M3/M4's and the used car CH market where M cars are trading easily 30% off with almost no miles - it's not a product that I would buy

    you guys are being unfair to BMW. in comparison, what are the GT3 and GT3RS other than pimped carreras? why do their spoilers look any better? i do not see why the GT3's differ from a ghetto body-shopped carrera any more than the BMW, and btw BMW interior beats the porsche interior easily IMHO. 


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    Limited to 700 cars, only 1510 kg weight, 500 hp with water injection, for under 100k this could be an interesting product. Unfortunately, I think this car will be very expensive (GT3 level, maybe a bit lower). Also, that wing looks hideous on the elegant 4 series silhouette. A version without the wing would be desirable.

    Here are some interior photos (can someone say "we copied Porsche..."?).

    this is interesting? .. giulia same figures but not limited .. half price .. NOT INTERESTING hahahahhaha .. forum live is just Smiley

    I think it's gonna be a nice collectors car but no added value (except of the nicer interieur) to a normal M4 in comparison to the massiv higher price tag


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    Seems as though the last GTS cost 137k Euros...

    I told you, I have my experience with Fiat products and I do not trust their numbers. The Giulia is a completely new product while BMW M GmbH has a lot of experience with such cars. I know where my money would go if I had to bet.

    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    RC .. yes .. secretly ... undercover brainwasher haha ..

    I just love the fact that when a non german producer with a 500hp/1500kg car states 7.39 everybody is like wohhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaa no way .. and a m4 gts same figures 7.28 (faster than gt3 eg.) no one give a fck hahaha ..

    I don't know if any one of you even drove a normal m3/4 on track .. with michelin supersport (not cup) it's even diff to get 3rd gear corners full grip to push ..

    I'm looking forward to see tests of the alfa and the GTS .. personally I think the new focus RS will be a killer

    you guys are being unfair to BMW. in comparison, what are the GT3 and GT3RS other than pimped carreras? why do their spoilers look any better? i do not see why the GT3's differ from a ghetto body-shopped carrera any more than the BMW, and btw BMW interior beats the porsche interior easily IMHO.

    Peter, u r a die-hard Ferrari Fan I get that - and try to justify not to buy a GT3/RS - but if you would ask 10 People if they would buy a M4GTS or 991GT3RS for the same Money -  I would bet 8-9 out of 10 would choose the Porsche. Look at some Chris Harris Videos around this Topic and check where the previous GTS product endet. Smiley


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    I would certainly buy the GT3 RS. The GT3 RS is not just pimped Carrera, this claim is ridiculous. The engine, the gearbox, the chassis, the brake system, everything is different. Even some of the body parts have nothing to do with the Carrera models. C'mon, Peter...you can do better.

    If I get a BMW then it would be a E46 CSL over this M4GTS and use the remaining CHF 100k for track day and private instructors Smiley

    If this is not an option, then I would get the GT3 RS.

    How so copied Porsche?  Just because of alcantara?  Pretty standard thing.  

    I'd agree this thing is ridiculously priced if a regular model.  But all these will go to die hard BMW fans and collectors, so the price is somewhat less important.  Low production.  


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    The spoiler just looks supid on this car. I wouldn't take this car over a GT3 / RS

    bjoern,

    for the same money i'd also take the GT3RS over the M4GTS. i am on the list for the RS and still hope to get one. but i am not fooling myself by thinking that it is a great-looking car. just put it next to a 458speciale and i bet you eight out of ten people will adore the ferrari and not take a second glance at the RS. i do not want to deny though that stealth maybe to some people's advantage…:::)))

    anyway, the M4GTS beats the M4 in my book.

    peter


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    I am pretty doing the same picks as Peter. Same money I will take GT3RS over the M4GTS. If just buying something for looks and money is secondary I will take the Speciale over the GT3RS. But for driving pleasures then it will be a hard choice between the Speciale and GT3RS, my personal pick would be GT3RS.

    if you read the PR fluff for the M4 GTS , it is to celebrate the 30th anniv of the iconic " ur - M3 " ..so it should have used a different , bespoke to the model trunk lid with a  built-in F40 style " high wing " ...just like the 1986 model it purports to celebrate ......would have been the perfect way to come " full circle " .......instead they went cost saving cheap with a bolted on " ghetto/ ricer " style wing !  


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    I think they are saving the integrated wing for the CSL (see pebble beach concept / grand turismo concept).  


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    I would get myself a Schirmer:

    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    Will manual be optional or not at all on this car?


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    This car is very cool, beside that hideous wing.

    But again as stated before, way too expensive. For the same money I have so many other choices which are a bit more premium and luxurious.
