Because, M3 aside, the 4er Gran Coupe is a nicer looking car than the 3er Sedan.

BMW needs to seriously consider building it.

Rear

Gran Coupe looks great! Bumper and fenders
I await the rear widebody conversion.
I would have preferred if the rear had an M4 or M4-style rear bumper. To me, the rear just looks like a 435i with the performance diffuser and quads
Great work otherwise.

Why remove the m badge? If the car comes with m package from the dealer, and it has m signs on the steering wheel, and on other places... then you got to remove it also? You are talking usless... if it's a m package then he can have the m sign, as long as it dosent say m3/m4 .

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
Do your Thang..Coming from an M3 owner your car looks hot That's what modding is all about..To be different.

beautiful. BMW should've made M4GC.

the M badge in the back doesn't bother me as long as it doesn't say m4.

excuted very well!

i think its better to leave the stock badges on, and mod it as you wish-

its your car and you can do whatever you wish to it for starters so it doesnt matter what we think

BUT, as a owxer of a 335 Msport, if i found my car re badged to look like a m3 sedan- i probably wouldnt touch it or buy it because to me its bastardized.

Now if the owner had a nice documented list showing any modifications was done professionally, and the car badging was as factory- that would be fine

Great looking car- also honestly no one knows or cares how many m badges there are on the car- except us nerds.. lol

Don't listen to the haters. Car is super nice. Sure it's not an M but I think we have all seen far worse. Either way this car is beautiful.

The majority of the people bitching about the M badge don't even own M's. I'd tell them to stfu if I was you, it's not like it says M4 it just says M. Anyways, the car looks great and you did a fantastic clean job with the conversion. Keep it up.

Very nice and great execution, except that rear badge. Too poserish (not a word) lol

I have nothing against these conversions, but that M badge is such a poser move! Just one small badge usually makes me laugh at people who place it there.

It dosent say m3/m4 .plus this has m badges on the steering wheel and also might have by the doors (the bottom trim) plus it's a m-package so he is all legit, car looks beautiful.

So you think GC has better design than the m3? Or did I misunderstand that from your initial post?

Looks great - very well done. The M6 GC is my favorite current BMW other than a lack of AWD. Nice job!

I think the Gran Coupe body style is way nicer than the sedan. So an M4GC would look much better than an M3 IMO.
