M Performance is BMW’s in-house customisation sector, providing customers with various personalisation options to give their cars a more exclusive look and feel. We’ve seen some awesome packages for the 3 Series, but this is a first for the 4 Series drop-top.

Highlights include a neat carbon fibre bodykit, with a discreet front spoiler, side skirts, and an aggressive little diffuser at the back.

There’s also various dark trimmings, such as the kidney grilles at the front, carbon fibre side mirror caps, and special 20-inch alloy wheels with black inner spokes.

In terms of engine upgrades, M Performance does provide engine computer tweaks which lift power and torque in other models. There has been a kit for the ’20d’ 2.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder which lifts output from 135kW to 147kW, and torque from 380Nm to 420Nm.
