It's like corking the bat.. except in this case the cork doesn't add to the performance of the vehicle at all.

Awesome project, lots of credit for the build, and yeah agree with the M badge needing to be removed.

I just don't understand why anybody would buy the GC, dump that money into it, when realistically you can get a nicely loaded up M3??

I like when people undertake a project simply for the sake of having a project, very clean build. As for the M badge, normally I'd say remove it like everyone else, however, the placement is more accurate than others I've seen and you didn't put a model number so I don't think it's bad at all.

I think for a conversion it looks slick. I also love the 4GC look so making your own M4GC is a unique idea. Was it much work to fit the fenders to the frame? Wide rear fender would for sure be even better but it looks great as is too. I like the rear bumper too. Very clean. Look forward to new updates.

You could have done a little bit of camo, never posted this thread, and waited for the "M4 GC Spotted" shit storm to start.

There was a guy many years ago who did an S4 to RS4 conversion when Audi wasn't making one. It was so good Audi actually officially authorized his rebadge. Unless you go to those lengths, I'd agree with the others and lose the badge. Otherwise great work.

Well, he didn't make his own, he faked his own. That said, full for the interest, heart, and M-appreciation to do the project. The disservice is the badge: It turns a great project into a poser-mobile.

Lose the badge OP, don't crap on your own hard work!

Agree with everyone here.

Awesome job but the M badge ruins it.

Take it off and it'll be perfect

Awesome! Hope you finish with the rear conversion!

Reminds me of all the 135i conversions to the 1m. I'd imagine it's a similar process where the front fenders and bumper are a direct swap. I've wanted to do the 1M swap on my 135i but the cost is immense considering they have to cut the rear fenders and weld on the 1m arches.

Forget the haters! Looks great!

That, sir, is a unique-ass car. I'm not a big fan of cheap-ass bodykits to make a car something it's not, but this amazing. I would've left off the M-badge, but that's personal taste. Still, exactly what I'd imagine a BMW fastback to look like.

Nice work OP
He sure did make something, and props to him for that. But please refrain from calling it an "M4 GC" like you just did. It's far from that and no conversion in the world would make it so.

I guess they didn't understand what I meant when I asked them to erase the "4" on the fender grill badge haha

But wow, I didn't expect this much negativity towards conversion mod on gran coupe from some of you. Thought I was creating something very unique rather than being a poser M4
Dont listen to haters, its an awesome project. Maybe someday you'll want to put in the M engine in there as well!

There were a lot of people that LOVED the e91 wagon conversion to M, im actually really surprised people are giving you a hard time about this.

From some of the crap i've seen people do here, this is fantastic, keep it up

I must admit,

Great effort on the car and great work quality. If you're really planning to go for a fully M4 conversion kit then you'd have to go insane

- Get an M4 Engine/Tranny (with harness, ECU and everything)
- Get an M4 rear bumper

Make your car stand out to be the first M4 GC in the world and get every guy who attacks you to shut up

Meanwhile, lose the M badge

100% respect the work done but the m badges should go. I mean I love the way it looks and i never would hate for fenders and bumpers but just as long as they don't say m4 on them. Any how very nice and very pretty!

Don't see the point. Rather just buy the M3.
