The BMW M4 may have the most controversial kidney grille ever, but it sure isn’t short on performance. Packing a 3.0-litre twin turbo six-cylinder in-line engine with up to 375kW of power and 650Nm of torque, the rear-wheel drive sports car can dash from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.9 seconds.
Already equipped with an M body kit and widened fenders, the BMW M4 looks raw and imposing straight out of the factory. The only thing left to do, perhaps, is to throw in a set of lowering springs.
And that’s where suspension and chassis specialist H&R comes in. Specially tuned to work with the factory adaptive dampers, the springs lower the M4 by up to 30mm at both axles. The subtle drop is enough to set off a properly aggressive stance, eliminating any unsightly gap between the tyres and the wheel arches.
As the spring rates are the same as the factory specifications, the tuner says ride quality is not compromised while handling is improved and roll is reduced in corners. It’s also claimed that all suspension components are German made and have been TÜV tested and certified to guarantee durability and high performance.
H&R is also beefing up the M4 with a set of wheel spacers which push the wheels outwards by 11mm, ensuring they sit properly flush with the wheel fenders. Combined, the lowering springs and wheel spacers give the M4 a much more aggressive, hunkered down look, with the 20-inch M lightweight wheels now filling up the wheel arches nicely.
The sport springs for the BMW M4 costs 444 euros while the wheel spacers will set you back a further 94 euros.
