AC Schnitzer Turns BMW X4 Into More Of An Athlete

Modifications include both visual changes as well as engine performance upgrades.

While the whole point of buying a second-gen BMW X4 is to own something that looks more dynamic than your everyday X3 SUV, there are still a great number of things you can do to dial the X4’s visual aggressiveness way up.

We knew AC Schnitzer was working on a tuning program for the G02 X4 since last September, although the project has just recently been completed. As a result, the crossover now looks more planted, meaner and on paper, it should be quicker than before.

First thing you notice is that this X4 stands closer to the road compared to a stock model. The custom suspension spring kit lowers the nose by 20 mm (0.78 inches) and the rear by 25 mm (0.98 inches), allowing for improved cornering ability.

In terms of aerodynamics, this X4 is equipped with new front spoiler elements, a rear roof spoiler, rear boot lid spoiler, and a carbon fiber Racing rear wing. Other mods include the rear skirt protection foil, custom side emblems and new engine optics. Then there are the AC1 BiColor or anthracite alloy wheels, available in 19-inch and 20-inch configurations, plus the AC2 alloy wheels, measuring 22-inches in diameter. Finally, you have the AC Schnitzer ‘Sport’ carbon tailpipe trims, which you can get either with a chrome look or blacked out.

As for the interior, you get aluminum pedals, footrest, keyholder and an aluminum cover for the iDrive controller.

More is better

The German tuner increased power output on the xDrive30d version from 265 PS (261 HP) to 315 PS (310 HP), while the xDrive M40d received a push from 326 PS (321 HP) to 380 PS (374 HP). Then if you opt for the custom downpipe with sports catalytic converter with 300 cpsi for the M40i, you get even better performance.
