Some people like to hate the BMW M4 G82’s XXL grille, but the sales numbers speak for themselves. In 2021, the M Division sold 163,542 vehicles, setting an all-time record and deliveries increased 13% over the previous year. While BMW does not break down the numbers per model, it is safe to say that the new M3 and M4 were the driving force behind the increase in demand.
It goes without saying that sales could not have been better because we have avoided some positive people due to the swollen kidneys of M4 G82. Fortunately, Vorsteiner has found a way to meet those who believe that BMW made a mistake when designing the front fascia. Instead of slimming the grill, the tuner is completely free from it.
Known as the Carbon Arrow Grill Delete Turing Edition, the kit has two panels to replace the OEM horizontal slats. Vorsteiner puts the “M4” logo with the parking sensor. Also, radar has been put in place for cruise control and security. Carbon fiber panels work best in a dark car with a splitter with the same finish.
Changing for cosmetic purposes is one thing, but we can’t help but wonder if it negatively affects the engine. At the end of the day, the grill – whatever it looks like – serves a functional purpose. This will cause the engine to cool down, so blocking airflow can have serious effects on the S58.
Vorsteiner “fixes” the design of the M4 G82 in an amazing way
As a result, it doesn’t matter if it’s overheating or not. Unless Verstein finds a way to keep the inline-six unit running at optimal temperature. It looks attractive, but we’ll be worried about damaging the twin-turbo 3.0-liter engine because it can no longer “breathe”.
If Carbon Arrow Grill Delete is your cup of tea, Vorsteiner is taking pre-orders starting April 1st. The panels are compatible with the M3 sedan and the upcoming M3 Turing. The kit costs 80 for a sedan, $ 81 for a wagon and $ 82 for a coupe.
