The 2015 BMW M4 Looks Menacing in Widebody Form
The new BMW M4 is many things. With 425 horsepower on tap, it’s a stunning performer. It packs a chiseled physique that rivals the best Germany has to offer. And it’s yet one more BMW to add to the “future classics” list. So how do you improve on that already impressive rap sheet? Well, install a muscle-bound widebody kit. Purists may balk at the idea, but after seeing its transformative properties on this ’15 M4, which recently appeared on eBay, the 4-series has much to gain from a widebody conversion. Namely, aggression. RELATED: Check Out the All-New, Aggressive 2016 BMW M6 GT3
The widebody package in play here comes from Vorsteiner. Known as the GTRS4 kit, it sounds intimidating in name alone. Spring for the kit and you’ll receive a carbon fiber front bumper and integrated splitter, tire-swallowing wheel arches front and rear, pronounced side skirts, hooked door mirrors, and a super aggressive rear bumper and diffuser. All things totaled, that widebody transformation adds a full four inches of width to the front and seven in the rear. How do you say “I have arrived” in German?
This shouty BMW M4 furthers its performance persona even more, as well. Those massive wheel arches hide Vorsteiner three-piece alloy wheels, wrapped in Toyo T1R tires, which attack the road thanks to KW adjustable height suspension. Underneath the hood, the BMW 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight six receives a high flow exhaust and a 550R+ engine tune from Enzo Performance, which unlocks a claimed 550 horsepower. Yikes.

Time will tell how fans view these aggressive widebody kits in twenty or thirty years. Nevertheless, with looks this commanding, it’s hard to see the widebody going out of style anytime soon.
