Other items can be added such as seat trim, type of wheels, and extra equipment. For example a parking assistant and Bluetooth wireless capabilities can all be added to the equipment package.
A look at the engine
You are paying for a fast car, so what kind of engine are you getting? The BMW M4 GTS has the same basic 3- liter, twin turbocharged inline 6 from the base M4. Because of new intake system and different exhaust, the vehicle will have 470 horsepower and 390 lb-ft torque. The 2016 model can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour, in just 3.5 seconds. Its max speed is set at 155 mph, making it one fast car. The performance level of this vehicle comes from an improved chassis, which weighs less than 1400 kg. This makes it one of the lightest in the series, allowing for a wider range of driving styles.
Interior and Exterior Changes
A few minor changes were made to both the interior and exterior of the M4 model. Both the steering wheel and seats were changed to a lighter version. Rear seats were replaced with a roll-bar, to further stiffen the car. New wheels were added to the exterior of the vehicle. Remarkable new laser headlights were added to allow the use of high beam anywhere, replacing the old ones. OLED tail lights were replaced in order to use less power than previous models. Of course, there are additional upgrades you can make to the interior and exterior, which will not cost more than $3,000.
