F26 BMW X4 xDrive35d by Lightweight – the elegant SUV

This is not a regular F26 BMW X4 xDrive35d. This is a car modified by Lightweight Performance. And it looks so good, that I can’t see any reason why someone would want to change something at this car.

We already wrote about it a few months ago, but now, the germans made public the prices for all the components and other information about its performance. There are also new pictures available, and you can find them at the end of this article.

This is a truly remarkable car. It’s one of the most good-sense designs I’ve ever seen. The color is just great: not flashy, yet not common. And, if the owner wants to go back to the initial paintwork, he can do it easily, as the foil’s adhesive is completely inoffensive.

The front lip is made of carbon fiber and costs 849 €. Its original design adds an interesting note to the front, giving it a touch of aggressiveness. The rear trunk spoiler, also made of carbon fiber, is equally elegant and sporty, being perfectly integrated in the design line. The front and rear bumpers and also the mirror caps have carbon fiber elements, looking cool and keeping the weight at a low level.

This beauty stands on a set of 21 inch wheels made by Hartge. The visual impact is even bigger, if you consider the all-new springs, which lowers the ground clearance by 30 mm, for 369 €. Their hi-tech design is detailed and their black color looks very natural, especially combined with the X4’s exterior color.

Let’s talk a bit about its performance, which has been upgraded, by installing a Lightweight ECU, which also removes the maximum speed cancellation. Its cost is around 2600 €, and it has been paired with a 89 € air filter, produced by the same tuner. The result is 365 hp and 690 Nm, but extra 10 hp and 70 Nm can be added via a Stage 2 kit (3699 €), to reach a top speed of 280 km/h. The exhaust system, with 4 end-tips contributes at these insane values, but costs 1800 €.

Onboard, the black Alcantara (1299 €), in combination with the aluminum pedals (189 €) and the small display added by Lightweight (899 €), make the trips sportier and more comfortable. If you like what you see, you can buy it for 88.000 €. Or, if you already own an X4, you can choose which elements to buy, because they can be sold separately.
