Don't think twice. Not many cars are as riveting to drive as this BMW. You should think about sticking with the standard 18-in wheels, though. The optional 19-in wheel/tire combination has a detrimental effect on ride quality. Find a BMW M4 for sale
The 2016 BMW M4 comes in a single well-equipped trim level as either a coupe or a convertible with a retractable hardtop.
Standard features in the coupe ($66,395) include an aerodynamic body kit with flared fenders and a power dome hood, adjustable drive settings, a sport-tuned suspension (with upgraded components relative to regular 4 Series models), M-spec performance brakes, a torque-vectoring rear differential, 18-inch staggered-width alloy wheels with performance tires, automatic wipers, auto-leveling adaptive xenon headlights, auto-dimming mirrors, a sport exhaust with quad tailpipes, 10-way power adjustable and heated front sport seats with adjustable side bolsters (and a backlit M logo on the seatback), driver memory settings, leather upholstery, carbon-fiber interior trim, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, smartphone app integration, a Harman Kardon 16-speaker surround-sound system with HD Radio and satellite radio, and the iDrive infotainment system with an 8.8-in widescreen display, navigation, voice controls, hard-drive music storage and a USB interface.
The M4 convertible ($74,895) adds a power-retractable hardtop, a rear-window defroster and extended leather upholstery with sun-reflective technology that helps keep the surfaces cool on hot days.
Both the coupe and convertible are eligible for a few options packages. The Lighting package adds adaptive LED headlights and automatic high beams. The Executive package includes retractable headlight washers, a head-up display, a heated steering wheel, a neck-warming vent system (convertible only), a rearview camera and parking sensors. The Driver Assistance Plus package consists of side-view and top-view cameras, active blind spot monitoring, lane-departure warning and forward-collision mitigation with automatic braking.
The new-for-2016 Competition package hikes engine power up to 444 hp. An adaptive M-tuned suspension consists of new springs, dampers and anti-roll bars and includes reconfigured driving modes of Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus. The Dynamic Stability Control system and Active M limited-slip rear differential have also been recalibrated for track work.
Stand-alone options include (expensive) carbon-ceramic brake rotors, adaptive suspension dampers with adjustable settings, 19-in wheels and a self-parking system. Coupes are also eligible for a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic roof (for a lower center of gravity and less weight than the regular steel roof), a sunroof and a power rear sunshade.
The convertible's trunk checks in at a generous 13 cu ft. with the top up, dropping to 7.9 cu ft. when the top is folded and stowed. The coupe offers 11 cu ft.
