For the fresh-faced model, BMW has handed the Z4 a redesigned front grille. The kidneys are flanked by refreshed LED headlamps with vertically arranged light sources positioned at the outer edges.

Options now available to customers include M light-alloy wheels in 19-inch format designed exclusively for the BMW Z4. The M lights Shadow Line pack is available and can be ordered with the (optional) adaptive LED headlamps. 


Inside, the M40i model features a combination of leather and Alcantara upholstery for the seats with blue contrast stitching and piping. Ambient lighting is also present in this derivative.
