BMW Group Australia is proud to announce the pricing and specification of its focused BMW M4 range.
Benefitting from the Life Cycle Impulse recently applied to the BMW 4 Series, the updated M4 range has been freshly expanded to offer an eclectic range of high-performance options.
“The BMW M4 remains true to the BMW M Heritage with its combination of performance, premium feel and track-capable dynamics,” said BMW Group Australia CEO, Marc Werner.
“We are also pleased to reveal the M4 Pure variant for our local market. The Pure puts an even-sharper focus on the driver by combining the popular Competition package with an extremely competitive price point. It’s a true ‘enthusiast’s choice’,” he said.

|BMW M4 Pure Coupe||$139,900|
|BMW M4 Coupe||$149,900|

Redesigned exterior and Adaptive LED headlights add aesthetic sparkle
The well-regarded Adaptive LED headlights with their twin circular design has been incorporated into a new hexagonal layout that adds further presence to the M4’s front-end appearance. LED indicators form an attractive, thin ‘eyebrow’ slit above the headlights that create a sense of increased width for an aggressive stance.
At the rear, new L-shaped LED tail lights further enhance the wide, low sports car visual.
A new, optional 20-inch light-alloy road wheel introduces a black wheel option for Competition variants that builds on the distinctive star-spoke style first seen on the legendary BMW M4 GTS.
Refreshed interior lifts ambience
A range of subtle yet effective interior updates further highlights the BMW M4’s all-round usability.
Double stitching highlights the leather instrument panel on the M4 and M4 Competition models, while electroplated details and chrome interior trims improve look, feel and functionality of the entire BMW M4 range.
Thanks to customer feedback, key touchpoints have been redesigned for added tactility. The indicator stalks, for example, now snap into place when engaged. In addition, the stalk-mounted buttons to activate the rain sensor and high-beam assist now stay depressed, rather than springing back to the original position.
For further exclusivity, M4 models now come with an illuminated ‘M4’ badge on the front face of the M sports seats.
A further focus on digitalisation
All BMW M4 variants have been upgraded to the cutting-edge iDrive6 infotainment system. Incorporating the latest BMW Navigation system Professional, iDrive6 offers a clear and customisable 8.8-inch colour display interface with an app-style ‘tile’ layout that can be arranged by touchscreen. The established iDrive rotary controller on the centre console and Natural voice control can also be used to control the infotainment system.
The BMW M4 Competition Coupe and Convertible
Following an impressive introduction in mid-2016, BMW Australia will once again create a standalone Competition variant on both M4 Coupe and Convertible body styles.
Increasing power to 331kW (up 14kW) and with 550Nm torque, the M4 Competition Coupe) sprints to 100km/h in 4.0 seconds (when fitted with the standard seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission). Opt for the Convertible and the benchmark to 100km/h is achieved in only 4.3 seconds. Like the M4, the M4 Competition variants remains available with a six-speed manual as a no-cost option. Combined fuel consumption is listed at 8.8L/100km, with 204g/km of CO2.
In addition to the improved power output, the Competition models benefit from a range of dynamic enhancements. The adaptive M suspension’s three settings – Comfort, Sport, Sport+ – have been reconfigured, with the Comfort setting equating to the regular M4’s Sport mode as a baseline.
Springs rates are also increased by 15 per cent for swifter response and flatter cornering posture during spirited driving.
The interior gains M Sport seats for the driver and front passenger (M4 Coupe), which feature cut-out elements for lighter weight. M stripe seat belts add further interior presence.
Outside, sleek gloss black highlights feature prominently, with the boot-lid ‘M4’ badge, M Competition exhaust tail pipes, exterior gills, and kidney grille all finished this way. The 20-inch star-spoke light-alloy wheels can also be optioned in black for the first time.

For those seeking Competition performance and dynamics with a further focused specification, the new BMW M4 Pure Coupe ticks every box.

The M4 Competition’s 20-inch light-alloy wheels, shod with 265/30 R20 front and 285/30 R20 rear rubber remain an option.

Condition Based Servicing
All maintenance requirements for the BMW M4 range is controlled by the Condition Based Servicing (CBS) system.
With CBS, sensors and advanced algorithms monitor and calculate the conditions in which a vehicle is used, including mileage, time elapsed since its last service, fuel consumption and how a vehicle is driven. Based on the information captured, maintenance requirements are determined, identifying whether an annual vehicle inspection or oil service is due.
Selected BMW service and maintenance costs can be covered by a single, one-off advance payment with BMW Service Inclusive (BSI), which is available in two packages: Basic or Plus.
