With the tuning range for the BMW 4 Series, AC Schnitzer makes an even clearer distinction possible

26.02.2021: Top sporting performance and visual independence beyond the standard: A stronger visual and technical distinction from the 3-series was BMW's aim in developing the new BMW 4-series Coupé. What began in Munich was further developed in Aachen


Top sporting performance and visual independence beyond the standard:



A stronger visual and technical distinction from the 3-series was BMW's aim in developing the new BMW 4-series Coupé. What began in Munich was further developed in Aachen by the tuning specialists at AC Schnitzer: driving dynamics, comfort and design once again clearly distinguish the 4-series G22 by AC Schnitzer from the standard vehicle and show what is possible beyond the standard.    



With the AC Schnitzer performance upgrades (up to 5 years warranty and homologation certificate) for the 430i with 190 kW/258 HP/400 Nm to now 220 kW/300 HP/470 Nm and for the M440i xDrive with 275 kW/374 HP/500 Nm to now even 309 kW/420 HP/600 Nm, power sources are available which immediately underline the difference when the accelerator is pressed.



A power upgrade for the M440d xDrive is still in preparation. Even when stationary, the AC Schnitzer engine appearance shows that professionals were at work here.




Performance upgrade for the M440i    



The six-cylinder timbre is further enhanced by the AC Schnitzer exhaust system made of stainless steel with two "Carbon Sport" or "Sport" tailtrims (chromed or black) in right/left combination. (4 pieces) and here, too, the look is not neglected: the exhaust tailtrims also make the acoustics visually tangible.    


Sporty comfort including lowering of approx. 15 - 25 mm makes the difference with the AC Schnitzer sports suspension for the 4-series Coupé. The resulting greater agility and sportiness push the limits of driving dynamics in the 4-series.



The AC Schnitzer spring kit offers pure lowering with lowering of the vehicle centre of gravity of approx. 20 - 30 mm each compared to the standard suspension.    



Improving the downforce of the 4-series Coupé was the declared aim of the tuning professionals at AC Schnitzer. With front spoiler elements, front splitter, side skirts, rear roof spoiler and a carbon rear spoiler (available approx. June 2021), the Aachen-based company supplies components for the production vehicle which provide more downforce at the front and rear axle and make the hearts of fans with even more driving pleasure beat faster. AC Schnitzer rear skirt protection foil and emblems (left and right) are of course also available.    



For the wheel sets, AC Schnitzer has various options in its range which make all the difference: AC1 alloy wheels in BiColor Silver/Anthracite or Anthracite (front: 8.5J x 20" with 235/35 R 20 tyres; rear: 10.0J x 20" with 265/30 R 20 tyres) and AC1 alloy wheels in BiColor Silver/Anthracite or Anthracite (front: 8.5J x 19" with 225/40 R 19 tyres; rear: 8.5J x 19" with 255/35 R 19 tyres) are available. All rims can also be optionally painted gloss black.



Beyond the standard equipment, individualists can also redesign the interior of the 4-series Coupé to set themselves apart from other 4-series Coupé drivers. There is a choice of aluminium gearshift paddles, aluminium pedals and a matching aluminium footrest as well as the aluminium keyholder.



Top sporting performance and visual independence - the 4-series Coupé by AC Schnitzer makes the difference!
