BMW M3 and M4 Available for Preorder in UK
|   Sunday, January 26, 2014
BMW's latest M3 and M4 variants are set to reach the shores of UK in June this year. Insiders say, pre orders for their M3 and M4 have already crossed 200 units. Demand for BMW's M Series performance variants has always been high, but they seem to have perfectly timed their latest fleet to attract attention. UK accounts for 10 percent of all European car sales for BMW's M Series. Hence, their successful implementation here is quite important for global sales for current fiscal year.


BMW's are a tradition in the United Kingdom, therefore selling products here is always challenging as people are on a lookout for constant modifications. Better quality products are scrutinized before being purchased. Hence, if they mess up, brand loyalty could be seriously hampered. BMW UK is expecting 700 M3 and 1200 M4 sales in their first quarter, while they hope to increase sales accordingly.

BMW hopes to sell 5000 units of the M4 throughout its life cycle, all powered by a six cylindered 3.0 liter turbo charged engine displacing 425 BHP. This vehicle is capable of accelerating from 0 – 60 MPH within 4.3 seconds, while every engine option is mated to a six speed manual transmission. Optional seven speed automated DCT transmission is available, which cuts acceleration time by close to half a second, while increasing top speed from 155 to 174 MPH.

Officials expect fuel efficiency of around 32.1 MPG on a combined note, while CO2 emissions are recorded at 204 g/km. It is not the most environmentally friendly vehicle of all time, although it is a decent performer, which has attracted quite a handsome amount of people. Turbo charged engines in the M3 and M4 are a first in its 26 year old history. They have its positive sides, which is why they are currently in use.

Insiders at BMW say they do not understand the relevance of naturally aspirated or turbo charged engine options, as they use an engine, best suiting a vehicle and its purpose. Right torque displacement and performance, can make any vehicle suitable. Hence, BMW will do whatever it takes to get things right. Turbo charging has its advantages as it is light weight as well as effective.

It reduces general weight of a vehicle, while providing superior performance. Aluminum and carbon fiber parts have been used exclusively on this vehicle, which saves around 100.8 kg in total. This is a worthy competitor to market giants such as Audi's RS5 and Mercedes Benz's C63 AMG. We could be getting a hybrid variant soon, as insiders have declined to comment on it whenever we enquired about a possibility.

A light weight battery saving pack is also in use, while its exterior lining is highly aerodynamic. Production is expected to start by March 2014, post which, we can think about formally taking this vehicle on a test drive. Do you think BMW has a chance against tough market competition with the M3 and M4? Stay tuned and come back soon for latest news regarding BMW and their latest fleet of M badge vehicles.
