Munich. From November 2017 onwards, the CFRP
driveshaft in the BMW M3 Sedan, BMW M4 Coupe and BMW M4 Convertible
high-performance sports cars (fuel consumption combined: 9.5 – 8.3
l/100 km [29.7 – 34.0 mpg imp], CO2 emissions combined: 218 –194 g/km)
will be gradually replaced by an M specific high-performance
driveshaft made of steel. This measure will create the necessary
technical basis for meeting future statutory emissions requirements.
At a later point in time, a petrol particulate filter (PPF) will be
incorporated into the existing installation space in these models in
major markets.
The newly developed steel driveshaft has been designed to ensure the
superlative performance and handling qualities of the BMW M3/M4
high-performance sports cars remain unaffected.
For production-related reasons, this pre-enabling needs to be carried
out universally for the BMW M3 Sedan, BMW M4 Coupe and BMW M4
Convertible. This measure does not apply to the BMW M4 CS and BMW M4
GTS special-edition models.
Now in their fifth generation, the BMW M3 Sedan, BMW M4 Coupe and BMW
M4 Convertible represent the epitome of the high-performance sports
car that can be used without compromise every day. Customer deliveries
of the successful current generation of models have now topped 68,000.

fuel consumption combined: 9.5 – 8.3 l/100 km [29.7 – 34.0 mpg imp],
CO2 emissions combined: 218 –194 g/km
