Unlike the normal M4 that's available with both a six-speed manual and seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the CS is only offered with the latter.

To trim weight, BMW cut various comfort and tech options from the CS. For example, a sound system with fewer speakers is installed. Automatic dual-zone climate controls have also been replaced by a manual, single-zone setup.
