We here at Kuni BMW were thrilled to accept delivery of the new 2015 M3 & M4 last week! We quickly took both vehicles for photo shoots (not an easy task to shoo away impressed gawkers long enough to take a photograph) and it’s a good thing too because the M4 sold the day it arrived!
We were impressed by the new paint colors, Austin Yellow on the M4 and Yas Marina Blue on the M3, as well as the sleek new details to the interior. The ///M placards on the seats that glow in low light were particular favorites.
Comparing the Two Vehicles
The M3 & M4 are almost identical aside from a few features. They both sport a twin turbo-charged 3.0 liter inline-six with 425 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. Both are available in a 7 speed dual-clutch automatic or a 6 speed manual. Both are rear wheel drive with electronically controlled slip differential.
How they Differ:
Body: 4 Door Sedan 2 Door Coupe
Lip Spoiler Integrated Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic Spoiler
Weight : 3595 lbs. 3585 lbs.
The M4 has a lower and wider look in the back with different tail lights.

Here at Kuni BMW, we recently acquired a 2011 1M. You may have noticed our updates on our facebook and instagram. We are pretty excited about it. Why? Here are three reasons:
#1 — You just don’t see one everyday. Really. This car is actually pretty rare. We would even reason to say this car is a collectors item. Only 983 North American-spec 1M’s were made. Less than a thousand! How many of these track ready cars remain that haven’t been damaged in some way? How many in white in as good of a condition as ours?
One might argue that the 1M will be released again with higher production numbers. This is true, but they still wont be a 2011 version with all of its bragging rights to rarity.
#2—Its not just a 1 Series with an M sport package.
The E82 1 Series M Coupe is a special version of the standard 1 Series coupe that was developed by BMW M GmbH, the subsidiary of BMW AG responsible for creating its most performance-oriented products. It combines a tuned version of the twin-turbocharged N54 motor with an M-enhanced chassis, and features massively-restyled bodywork, as well as many unique interior features.
#3–It just may be the only certified Pre-Owned 1M in the country right now. We cant confirm this for sure, but with so few of them in existence its pretty likely you wont find another one that is Certified Pre-Owned.
Intrigued? Come by and see it for yourself! Schedule a test drive today!

A new year comes with exciting new models and updates. Check out what BMW has to offer in 2014:
M5: Production of the 2014 M5 began in July 2013, bringing with it a new Competition package that includes a 15-hp increase, 20-inch wheels, suspension tweaks, refined steering, and a sport exhaust. New LED taillights and a revised steering wheel and grille round out the M5’s updates.
M6: Available in coupe, convertible, and Gran Coupe body styles, the 2014 M6 is available in manual six-speed as a no-cost alternative to the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. A Competition package similar to the M5’s is now available.
X5: New for 2014, the latest X5 arrives with a choice of two gasoline engines: a 300-hp, 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six or a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 with 445 horsepower. Both are coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is available with the six-cylinder. A diesel-powered X5 will arrive in 2014, and an M version should follow soon after.
2-Series: This replacement for the 1-series coupe and convertible arrives at Kuni BMW later this month, at least in coupe form. The convertible ought to follow by the fall. This all new model is a larger body than the 1-series with similar engine options to a 3-series.
3-Series: A station wagon returns to the 3-series lineup. It is offered with the turbocharged four- and six-cylinder gas engines of the 3-series sedan and comes standard with four-wheel drive. A new 180-hp, 280-lb-ft 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel is new to the sedan and wagon lineups. The 3-series GT hatchback, an early 2014 model, carries on unchanged. The M3 is on hiatus until it returns as both a sedan (M3) and a coupe (M4) in the fall of 2014.
4-Series: Replacing the 3-series coupe, the 4-series comes packing either the four- or six-cylinder turbo engines from the 3-series lineup. The 4-series is lower, longer, and wider than its 3-series predecessor, yet is reportedly 100 pounds lighter. Cabriolet and Gran Coupe versions are sure bets.
5-Series: A 255-hp, six-cylinder turbo-diesel joins the lineup, powering the new 535d. The twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 in the 550i and 550i xDrive gets a 45-hp boost to 445. The five-door GT, now available as a rear-driver, gets the updated gas engines.
6-Series: The 2014 6-series models began hitting showrooms in June 2013, including 640i versions of the convertible, coupe, and Gran Coupe. Four-wheel drive is available on all three 6-series body configurations, as is an M Sport Edition.
i-Series: The new all-electric BMW i3 is a landmark in BMW’s mission to provide a completely sustainable, electric vehicle that still stays true to the Ultimate Driving Machine moniker. The BMW i3 is the first product of the new BMW i sub-brand, and is a truly purpose built electric car. It’s a new era for electro mobility at BMW. Look for it at Kuni this spring.
Minor trim changes: X3, X6, Z4, 7-series
Unchanged: X1, X6 M
Retired for 2014: M3, 1-series
Expect to see the 1 series return in 2015 with two extra doors and a whole new look.Share on Facebook
