Here’s Your Best Look Yet at the Big Grille on the New BMW M4 Convertible

The massive double-coffin kidney grille design on the new BMW M3 and M4 is an assault on the senses, for better or worse, depending on your tastes. While we’ve only seen the sedan and coupe variants so far, there’s still a wagon on the horizon, as well as a convertible, shown above. And both will be getting the same controversial front end design.

Judging by this latest spy video to emerge from the sidelines of the Nürburgring, BMW is fully committed to giving its high-volume M cars that… interesting nose. It’s fully on display on this M4 convertible prototype, which, like the normal 4-Series, has switched to a soft-top roof style, moving away from the previous-gen car’s folding hard top.

Under the hood, we fully expect the M4 ‘vert to get the same exact same drivetrain as its fixed-roof sibling. That means a twin-turbo S58 straight-six making 473 horsepower and

Less roof, more fun.

The new BMW M4 is out in the open now, and it’s clear that its grille is here to stay. Recently, a convertible version of the M4 has been spied around the Nürburgring Nordschleife bearing the same polarizing front fascia.

As we’ve already seen the M4 Coupe and 4 Series Convertible, it doesn’t take a genius to predict what the open-top variant will look like. Don’t let its high-visibility jacket fool you, because the profiles will likely be very similar.

Although convertible performance vehicles have always received criticism for never being quite as good as the hardtop, things are still looking good here – BMW hasn’t just sliced the roof off and left it there. Under the hood, it looks like the open-air machine will likely share the same motor as the Coupe, meaning power will come from a twin-turbo

FRANKFURT (Reuters) – BMW BMWG.DE Chief Financial Officer Nicolas Peter on Thursday said Britain’s separation from the European Union could cost carmakers and suppliers up to 11 billion euros unless cross-border trade remains tariff-free and unbureaucratic.

BMW has spent a low double-digit million euro amount this year to prepare for Brexit, Peter told journalists during a virtual roundtable discussion on Thursday.

“The auto industry association ACEA has estimated that it could cost carmakers and suppliers 10 to 11 billion euros,” Peter said.

“We need tariff-free trade. And even then, it needs to be seamless. We have a just-in-time manufacturing system so the administrative processing at

This reminds us of the brand’s past and how the company allocates the cooling air to its powertrains in its signature style. The biggest change in the 4 Series is the soft top and the use of that signature slim

BMW Series Convertible unveiled, now gets folding soft-top roof

BMW has unveiled the latest 4 Series Convertible just a short while after the launch of the M4 coupe range. This time, however, the 4 Series gets a soft-top.

The previous iteration of the 4 Series Convertible featured a folding hard-top. This has now been swapped out in favour of a soft cloth roof.

In terms of design, the 4 Series shares its styling with the new second gen M4, in that it gets the same front-end styling along with the large kidney grille up front. The roof makes use of panel bow elements and a glass rear window that BMW says offers better thermal and acoustic comfort than standard soft-tops. The roof is electrically powered and takes 18 seconds to open and shut and can be operated at up to speeds of 50 km/h.
