  • How the BMW M4 GTS water injection system works

    The BMW M4 GTS is one of few production cars to use a water injection system. The M4 GTS sprays water into the intake manifold to cool down air for its engine. How in the world does water help make more horsepower? That's the question Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained answers in this episode. First, a quick overview of the air intake system for the 3.0-liter turbo-6 engine. The M4 GTS takes in air and it passes through the air filter into the turbo's compressor where it's heated. The air then makes its way to an air-to-water intercooler where the compressed air cools down, and then into...

    BMW M4 Gran Coupe in the works for next 4-Series?

    BMW's 4-Series Gran Coupe is one of the more handsome options in the lineup, though strangely the svelte five-door never received the same M4 treatment that its coupe and convertible siblings benefited from. That won't be the case for the next-generation 4-Series Gran Coupe due early next decade...

  • 2018 BMW M4

    The BMW M3 and M3 are about to become a little less special as both the sport sedan and coupe will switch from carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) driveshafts to fairly commonplace steel components. BMW says the reason behind the switch involves emission standards and future compliance. The CFRP driveshafts are wider than steel units and take up more space under the car. BMW plans to add a particulate filter to the exhaust system in the near future and the CFRP driveshafts simply don't mesh with the emissions equipment. However, BMW assures enthusiasts that the steel units have been...
