The dynamics of the BMW M4 Convertible.

When the BMW M4 Convertible accelerates to the limit in next to no time, the significance of power can be experienced with all senses. The boost stays finely adjustable even in the highest rev ranges and thanks to numerous motorsport technologies such as the Active M Differential or M Servotronic, the BMW M4 Convertible reacts in every situation exactly as you’d expect of a top-class athlete: with high precision and absolute technical perfection.

Competition package.

Pure motorsport sensation: With the Competition package, you transfer even more dynamics and agility to the street – thanks to enhanced engine output, specially attuned Adaptive M suspension, newly adapted Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), the Active M Differential and 20" M light alloy wheels with mixed tyres. The modifications to the suspension include new springs, dampers and stabilisers as well as adapted Comfort, Sport and Sport+ driving modes.
The power of the M TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder petrol engine is boosted to 331 kW/450 hp. The  sport exhaust generates an extremely powerful and distinctive engine sound − with goosebumps guaranteed. For the exterior, just one of the many impressive features are the exclusive forged and gloss-lathed 20" M light alloy wheels Star-spoke 666 M with mixed tyres. These wheels have also been optimised with regard to rigidity. The sporty character is further emphasised by the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line with extended contents, which extends from the front  kidney grille across the gill elements to the model designation in high-gloss Black, culminating powerfully in the Black Chrome tailpipes.

Active M Differential.

The Active M Differential variably distributes the drive torque between the two rear wheels to optimise traction and driving stability during dynamic lane changing or accelerating out of bends, when making curves at high speeds or on roads with uneven surfaces, including snow, gravel and ice. It even provides precise handling during extreme lateral acceleration. The constant, smooth adjustment of the differential lock harmonises the vehicle's driving performance, improving control in extreme driving situations.
Traction is optimised with the help of an electronically operated device that reduce difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels. The system, which was developed for motorsports, is connected to the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) via an electronic control unit. It proactively provides the perfect use of locking action between 0 and 100 percent, neutralising even the finest differences in torque between the rear wheels – without the tendency to understeer. The Active M Differential provides optimal grip as well as great directional stability and perfect handling, and it converts virtually all of the engine's drive power into acceleration.

Launch Control.

Launch Control lets an engine that has reached operating temperature achieve maximum acceleration from a standing start. Just deactivate Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), choose the sequential mode with driving program 3, firmly hold down the brake and press the accelerator pedal to kickstart. After the starting-flag symbol in the instrument cluster display is illuminated, the engine will be set to its ideal starting speed when pushing down the accelerator pedal. While maintaining kickdown, release the brake and the vehicle will then accelerate to the maximum until the accelerator is released. The M dual-clutch transmission constantly sets the gearshift points so that when shifting up, the next optimal engine speed is available. This is a feature that is destined to delight drivers with dynamic, sporty ambitions.


In M vehicles, lightweight construction is of the highest priority. That is because low weight is the basis for the best dynamics and exemplary efficiency. Ultra-light materials like magnesium, aluminium or CFRP (carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic) are used in many components. That allows for greater agility and dynamics, and improves acceleration and braking.

Adaptive M Suspension.

The Adaptive M Suspension's electronically controlled shock absorbers constantly adjust to road conditions as well as driving style within milliseconds, to guarantee optimal road contact in every situation, and the best possible traction for even more agile handling. The suspension settings can be adjusted from comfortable to sporty-dynamic via the Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes.
Comfort mode ensures comfortable handling during everyday driving, and also increases safety in case sudden swerving is necessary. In Sport mode, ample comfort is maintained, but dampening is reduced and contact with the road is more direct – ideal for country roads and uneven racetrack. Sport+ mode offers minimal dampening and maximum driving dynamics on level roads and racetracks.


One factor for a highly dynamic driving experience in the BMW M4 Convertible are the brake systems. With their unbeatable precision, the M Carbon Ceramic Brake System and the M compound brakes ensure unrivalled dynamics and performance.

M Servotronic adjusts the power steering to suit the current speed and ensures a direct and precise steering response even at high speeds. It also ensures supreme comfort by minimizing the physical effort required for steering, as well as maximizing agility when parking, manoeuvring or navigating narrow or twisting roads.

Seven-speed M dual-clutch transmission with Drivelogic.

The M dual-clutch transmission with Drivelogic is an innovative seven-speed dual-clutch transmission specially designed for the BMW M high-rev engine. The system boasts a traction optimised automatic gear selection, Launch Control, Low Speed Assistance, as well as Auto Start-Stop. It makes it possible to change gears extremely quickly without any loss in power. Two sub-transmissions, each with its own clutch, continuously relay the power of the engine to the rear wheels.
The system can be controlled automatically, or manually using the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel or gear lever. Just as with Launch Control, which allows maximum acceleration from a standing start, an extremely dynamic driving experience is the result: shifting gears at high speed is possible without using the clutch, and without any interruption in the power delivery. Drivelogic can be automatically (D mode) or manually (S mode) controlled, and in each mode three shifting options are available: extremely sporty, comfortable or efficient.
