Pure Turbo 435xi M4 Conversion

Hey guys I've decided to take things to the next level on my 435, figured i'd start a build thread to help future F32 owners who decide they want to do this. Here's some info on my car

2014 Estoril Blue 435xi M sport
Current mods:
-Pure stage 2 turbo
-Upgraded turbo inlet
-Fuel it port injection
-AIC6 port injection controller
-Fuel it stage 3 LPFP
-VRSF 4 inch catless downpipe
-Custom 3 inch straight pipe
-M4 intake
-ER charge pipe
-ER intercooler
-JB4
-Pro tuned by Jordan @ RK TUNES
-OEM M4 wheels
-KW street comfort coilovers
-Carbon fiber M sport front lip
-Carbon fiber rear diffuser
-Runs on 100% E85 no mixing
-P3 digital boost gauge
-Makes 560 AWHP @ 24psi

Moving onto cosmetics, the car is in the body shop as we speak. Bought a complete M4 front end off a guy that's parting out his M4 and making it a track car. Also bought the OEM trunk, side skirts and mirrors. I'll be buying OEM M4 rear quarters from BMW and having them welded in place. Doing a full respray in Estoril Blue with a black roof and black mirrors. Going back to pick up the front & rear brakes (calipers, rotors, lines) off the M4 sometime next week. May be going as far as full M4 interior including the HUD & cluster. I think this may be the most involved conversion on here (correct me if i'm wrong)

My goal here is to somewhat create a AWD M4, i'm sure I could of saved money just buying an M4, i'm well aware of that. I have a connection to this car after the Pure turbo build and could never part with it. No i'm not putting M badges on it before anyone ask

12/19 font fenders & hood mounted, began spraying the car




12/27
Car is fresh out of the paint both, decided i'm not going to do the M4 rear quaters or rear bumper, everything else is still in full effect. The M4 trunk is mounted and fits perfectly. We still have to mount the side skirts (some custom work involved) along with the M4 mirrors. We learned that the OEM front bumper is not going to fit unless we use the front crash bar & Styrofoam pad (that sits behind the bumper) from an M4, i'll be picking that stuff up tomorrow and then we'll proceed. Still not sure what front tire size i'll be running, in the pictures you can see that the 235/40 I had previously is now useless I may try a 265/35/19 squared set up, i'm worried that it's not going to clear the front struts. I guess we'll find out, this may be tricky because of the X drive

On a side note, i'm also adding the side view bumper cameras & the M4 mirror cameras as the M4 that the parts came off of had them as an option. My car currently has a back up camera as well as front and rear parking sensors. I have a buddy who's amazing at coding these cars, he will hook everything up & add the options to my car. The cameras will function thru the iDrive as if they were OEM!

*bumper is not mounted yet, just mocked up with zip ties*



1/15
Front end is mounted, M4 sideskirts were customised to fit my rear quater panels. OEM M4 trunk fit perfectly, no modification needed! Car is pretty much done, still a few more things to do. Tire sizes are way to small so I need to change to a wider size to accommodate for how much wider all the M4 stuff is. I'm missing 2 parking sensors in the sides of the front bumper (those are on the way) also ambers are getting sprayed blue to match the car. Doing a full Aero kit (lip, sideskirt extensions, rear bumper splitters, trunk lip) probably a few other things i'm forgetting right now but stay tuned!

Cool! That's some serious power for AWD!

Do you have any videos of your car before the m4 conversion? It would be interesting to hear your custom 3" straight pipe.

Also, any pics of your engine bay? Wondering what the m4 intake looks like - isn't there two? That's madness if you've added two.

"I have a connection to this car after the Pure turbo build and could never part with it." I bet I would feel the same way!!

And awesome that you're not putting on m4 badges - this will be your unique car - no need to front. And I can't knock you on going with the m4 body panels as they are much more aggressive/aesthetic. Grab those LCI headlights and tail-lights and wow.

I do have many videos that i'll post up, one video of the car beating a GTR in the 1/4 mile it sounds amazing and has a very aggressive burble tune from RK, I personally think this car sounds 1000x better than a M4. That's one of the main reasons why i'd pick this rather than buying an M4.

I'm pretty sure I used the air duct scoop from an M4 and had my stock intake customized to fit it, so it flows better. I'll have to ask the tech that did all the work to my car. It was done so when you pop the hood it looks completely stock I'll grab some under the hood pictures and throw them up on here tomorrow

Cool build!

Would the exterior F82 front quarter panels fit on a F32 without other changes (hood and bumper)?

Obviously, the same exterior door lines up and is used on both models.
No they don't, you need to do the front bumper & hood as well to get them to fit properly

My tuner said the car will have no problem doing 10s with the passenger & rear seats removed, 1/4 tank, cooler day & a way better 60ft
On the street i have no problem beating 11.1 gtrs & being neck and neck with 10 second cars
