The One and Only – Fire Orange
For those that aren’t familiar with some of BMW’s more special edition cars, Fire Orange was one of the two color options available on the E92 BMW M3 Lime Rock Park Edition. The Fire Orange Lime Rock M3 was, and still is, a fan favorite, so seeing that color on a new M4 should put a smile on any BMW fan’s face.
All-New Performance Exhaust System
The controversy of this M4 G82 stems from the use of a new design for the M Performance Exhaust. We’ve seen it before the M4 was officially unveiled and it features a stacked V configuration for the four tailpipes at the back. In addition, the exhaust system is around seven kilograms lighter than the standard version. It certainly reminds gearheads of the setup high-performance Lexus models have, LFA included. And while it may look cool for some people, installing one such exhaust comes with a hefty price. That’s not just because the M Performance exhaust is made of titanium but also because, due to this new shape you’ll have to change the rear diffuser as well, to make sure it fits. You can listen tot he exhaust sound here.
This Fire Orange BMW M4 was also given a significant aero upgrade from BMW’s M Performance Parts Catalog. That upgrade included a large fixed rear wing, new side skirts, a new lower front lip, a rear diffuser, and some canards on the front bumper. It also wears BMW’s Style 963M wheels with a black paint, which always look killer.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper tuning project without some special upgraded brakes. Directly derived from the BMW Motorsport long-distance brake pads, the ceramic brakes guarantee shorter braking distances, better response characteristics and high thermal resistance. They also look quite cool with gold calipers.
If you’d like to adjust your ride quality as well, the M Performance Parts catalog has you covered. A coilover suspension permits an infinitely variable reduction of ride height of between five and twenty millimeters (recommended lowering -10 mm vs. the M base model).
