    Great arrival for the X4 , BMW and my CONGRATULATIONS !
    ‘ Would like to propose the following upgrades towards this highly-desirable car .

    – a dedicated 2+2 M-sport 3-door coupe version in the not-so-distant future .

    – 400PS in-line 6 cylinder twin-power turbo petrol/diesel engines with 0-60 sprint @ just over 4 seconds topping @ 155mph .

    – integration of that fussy secondary swage line over the rear wheel into a single crease running laterally across both flanks
    giving the M-Sport X4 3-door coupe established character lines .

    – accentuated fender flares to accommodate both the X5/X6s 10Jx21″ (front) 11.5Jx21″ light alloy wheel models shod in 50-series tyres .

    – laterally bolstered front and rear passenger bucket seats .

    – quad rear exhaust pipes set on carbon fiber rear air diffusers .

    – front fender side vents .

    – ventilated engine bay hood .

    – sharper definition of the rear ducktail spoiler along the aesthetic vocabulary of the massive front air inlets .

    – NO roof rails as the X4 looks better without them .

    – premium concert hall-fidelity audio system .
