Maybe this is the aesthetic fix you’ve been looking forby Isaac Atienza, on LISTEN 02:44
While the current BMW M3 and M4 are still relatively new cars as they haven’t even reached two years in their life cycle, it seems like these high-performance cars have already existed for way longer due to how much people are still talking about its schnoz. Thankfully, Vorsteiner may have a fix for that.
To say that the ginormous kidney grille of the BMW M3 and M4 are controversial is already an understatement at this point. Numerous aftermarket tuning brands have already developed body kits for the two high-performance cars, but Vorsteiner’s work is probably the one that (sort of) fixes the grille the best.
And that’s the part where we’re going to start. Vorsteiner thinks they’ve been able to fix the grill by giving it a thicker horizontal bar at its center. The grille is available in either ABS plastic, which costs $899.99 or carbon fiber, which brings the price up to $1499. If you want to improve its looks even further, you can opt for the carbon fiber front splitter, which is worth $2,395.
Vorsteiner is also offering an entire carbon fiber body kit set that consists of side skirts, a rear diffuser, and a decklid spoiler. The entire kit is valued at $8,684, though each part can be purchased individually. For now, it’s only the decklid spoiler that’s been given an a la carte price, which is valued at $2,195.
Of course, Vorsteiner is also primarily known for its wheels, and the aftermarket tuning company is also pairing the body kit with their latest V-PX Forged wheels, which were developed using the latest fully forged technology with a 10,000-pound press with bolt-on flush wheel fit. The new wheels feature a lightweight spoke and back pad pocketing with knurled barrel details, which Vorsteiner says maximizes tire grip on and off track.
While these photos only showcase the M3, this package also works on the M4 according to the listing on Vorsteiner’s website. Additionally, these parts are only for the car’s exterior, which means the interior and performance of the M3 remain untouched.
Other tuning companies have developed performance and more importantly, aesthetic parts for the BMW M3 and M4, such as Zacoe, AC Schnitzer and Manhart, but Vorsteiner is the first tuning company to actually make alterations to these cars’ grille.
What do you think of this body kit? Is Vorsteiner able to fix the controversial kidney grille of the BMW M3?
