Editor's Overview

The 2018 BMW 4 Series can be had as a coupe, a retractable-hardtop convertible, or 4-door liftback called the Gran Coupe. The first two, with their 2-door/4-passenger configurations, prioritize sportiness, while the 5-passenger Gran Coupe adds a surprising dose of practicality thanks to its large rear cargo bay. All have impressive driving dynamics and premium amenities.

The color is beautiful. It handles nice around turns and the city. The nav system is awesome too, quick and accurate. The engine never gets too loud and always shifts nicely thru the gears. We have issues with the keys; remembering which one is who's. Sometimes I think the computer shorts and resets the settings randomly.

The best performing machine.

I have no problems with the car so far. The performance is awesome, top notch German quality, and it wouldn't trade it for anything else. It has 320 horsepower, not the fastest car, but definitely faster than what you could imagine. Gas mileage is pretty good. It uses 93 gas which is premium and that is required too.

Very comfortable, very clean lines and hugs the road. The only thing I do not like is the stereo system in the car. For $55, 000 I think the system would be great, but it is not. The car handles like a sports car with great hold the road feeling. A luxurious car to say the least.

Seat Belts > Front Aug 15, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 15, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V507000
Summary:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2018 430i, 430i xDrive, 440i, 440i xDrive, and M4 convertible vehicles. The Emergency Locking Retractors (ELR) within the front seat belt assemblies may have been produced with incompatible vehicle-sensitive locking mechanism housings.
Consequence:
If the vehicle has an incompatible vehicle-sensitive locking mechanism, the seat belt may not restrain the seat occupant in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary replace, the front seat belt assemblies, free of charge. The recall began October 13, 2017. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
