A full M-Sport package beckons for the BMW Z4 as these spy pictures show. Since the Z4 M is dead in the water customers will have this as a consolation prize.
The Z4 M is no longer going into production and leaves us with a slight feeling of dissatisfaction upon viewing these photos. The words "consolation prize" spring to mind. BMW is not the only one of course; Mercedes-Benz will not bring out a proper AMG model for the new E-Class Coupe but will instead offer an AMG sport package.
However, it's in the M-sport spirit that fans need to take in these spy pictures of a Z4 kitted out in M-Sport clothes. It looks very agile as it corners around the Nürburgring. Had it not been for a few telltale signs like the two exhaust pipes and side mirrors one would have certainly been fooled into thinking an about-face turn on the Z4 M had been made.
The M-Sport kit will consist mostly of larger wheels, different front and rear bumpers, M badges inside and out as well as a tighter suspension system. The model caught by our spies is the range-topping sDrive35i, however the package would probably be offered for the full Z4 range.
Hopefully, BMW execs will change their mind and offer the real deal.
