Leaked: BMW X4 M40i with 360 HP

The M2 will most likely have the same motor not surprising because the rumors has been circling for a while.

Awesome stuff. The body changes are a bit slight..even for an M-esque version.

A bit of a disappointment:
-not lowered
-I prefer my 310:s
-not very nice exhausts -I will buy M performance accessories

I don`t need 360 bhp -I can utilise my 8-speed and get all overtaking speed I need.

I wonder if this is the same motor going into the M2, with tweaks to the intake, exhaust and DME. This vehicle is no lightweight at 1915 kg. It is not overpowered with 360 hp.

I don't think that BMW wants to lower it. They already know the X4 handlers superbly. If they lower it and get rid of what makes an X vehicle an X vehicle, what's the point over the GT or just getting a sedan.

But I do want the silver mirrors.

Yes i follow you, our 310 are more beautifull.

At least if the exhaust design is not the best, they are painted mat black so easy to clean. And the sounds should be more sporty.

360 ponies could be fun

Looks good. Those front calipers though look less than in an M135i?

And X should not be lowered from the factory, then it is no X anymore.
310's are nice be those rims too....
Double exhaust is nice, indeed it could be 2 double's....
I don't get the point on the 360bhp what else would make it an X4M

Seems you don't need the X nor the M, go for a BMW 4 maybe?

X3 version would sell like hotcakes and draw people from the Macans and SQ5.

Would love to come back to BMW. Will have to wait for the X3M.

Seems like a bit of a slap in the face for the M2 boys. The anticipation couldn't be any more torture than it already is!
