New Competition Package for BMW M3 and M4

The BMW M3 Saloon, M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible will now be available with a special Competition Package designed to enhance driving dynamics. 

The suite of upgrades results in an overall performance improvement with the M3 Saloon and M4 Coupe (fitted with the optional 7-speed M Double Clutch transmission) accelerating from rest to 62mph in 4.0 seconds, while the M4 Convertible takes 4.3-. The sprint time for 6-speed manual models is similarly a tenth of a second faster compared to the standard car.

The Package includes Adaptive M Suspension with new springs, dampers and anti-roll bars, along with reconfigured driving modes (Comfort, Sport and Sport+). The standard Active M Differential on the rear axle and DSC Dynamic Stability Control have also been adapted to match the upgraded dynamics. Machine-polished, weight- and rigidity-optimised 20-inch M alloy wheels with multi-spoke M styling and mixed tyres (front: 265/30 R20, rear: 285/30 R20) complete the list of chassis upgrades.

For the M3 and M4 Coupe, the interior features lightweight M sports seats featuring seatbelts with woven-in M stripes.

Exterior highlights include the M sports exhaust system with black chrome tailpipes and extended BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line exterior trim. The high-gloss Black finish has been applied not only to the side window trim, window recess finishers and exterior mirror frames and bases, but also to the BMW kidney grille, the side gills and the model badge on the tail.

On-the-road prices for cars fitted with the Competition Pack start from £59,595 for the M3 Saloon, topping out at £63,350 for the M4 Convertible.
