First BMW M4 comes off the assembly line

by Bernie McGroarty on March 4, 2014, 11:32 am

BMW's highly anticipated M4 has started production and the first production car has rolled off the assembly line in Munich. The first M4 off the line was finished in Austin Yellow and was presented by the Munich plant's managing director Hermann Bohrer and DTM racing driver Martin Tomczyk.

The new M4 packs a 3.0 liter TwinPower Turbo in-line 6 that puts out 425 horsepower and 406 torques, getting it to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. When the M4 goes on sale this summer, it will start at $64,200, slightly higher than the new M3 sedan which will start at $62,000. Both not including the $925 destination and handling. Options such as BMW's M double clutch transmission, M carbon ceramic brakes and blacked out wheels can kick that price up quite a bit more.

We look forward to getting behind the wheel of both the M4 and the M3 in the near future, to see if they go as good as they look.

I'm still disappointed the the tail lights are not full LED... Even my E46 and F10 have full LED tail lights

^ The e36 did not come with LED tailights....Those are only aftermarket - and no offense but they look just awful. They match the car just as much as stick-on chrome grills and one piece headlights.

My bad its a 2004 330CI (E46). I have a 1990 325i, a 2004 330i and a 2013 550i.. Below is not my car but an example of the tail lights I was referencing. They were factory and not after market. Most all of the competition now has full LED options for their cars and 11 years after my 330 was produced should be enough time for full LED front and back on a 2015 model car. If you are paying 70K ish for a car you shouldnt see 1 old fashion bulb
