It is always a delight admiring plenty of tuning programs carried out on BMW`s most astonishing models. And there were a few in the past that deserved our attention, like the M2, M3/M4 and some from the X division.
These enhancements were brought by tuning firms that believed in the potential of those hot rides. They gradually adapted their programs, and thanks to the new technological development, they created the perfect aero packages and power programs.
Besides well-known tuning firms from Germany, like Manhart, Mansory or Hamann, there is also the Swiss-based DAHLER aftermarket shop that loves playing around BMW products. Mainly developing power upgrades, DAHLER has also started developing new and spectacular aero kits.
The news from DAHLER involves the all-new BMW X4, both in the M40i and top of the line M40d, both receiving new power packages and custom body parts, starting with the new wheels and finishing with a high-performance, in-house built exhaust system with four tailpipes.
Performance wise, the stock BMW X4 M40i is powered by a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, developing 350 PS and 500 Nm of torque. However, with the tuner`s ECU remapping and new turbos, the M40i is now capable to churn out 420 PS and 630 Nm of torque, resulting an increase of 60 PS and 130 Nm of torque.
On the other hand, the stock BMW X4 M40d develops 326 PS and 680 Nm of torque, however, with the new power kit, it is now programmed to 380 PS and 780 Nm of torque. The performance numbers from 0 to 100 km/h are not yet known.
From a visual perspective, both models can be had with much larger wheels, sized 9 x 21-inch and 10.5 x 21-inch front and rear, respectively. The wheels go swell with the bespoke sport suspension system with shock absorbers, which lowers the SUVs ride height and provide greater stance and increased grip. The shock absorbers also make it “make it sporty but never hard.”
As aforementioned, announcing a power increase and a wilder engine roar is the in-house built Dahler stainless steel exhaust system with no less than four tailpipes. It also enhances the SUV`s impressive stance and aggressive look.
