BMW M3/M4 Competition pack coming

Motoring Reporter

Packages combine added sporty personality, enhanced dynamics and extensive handling upgrades.

The BMW M3 Sedan, the BMW M4 Coupe and the BMW M4 Convertible demonstrate the perfect combination of high-performance sports car engineering with unrestricted everyday utility.

From March 2016, all three body styles will be available with a special Competition Package from BMW M GmbH that combines added sporty personality with enhanced dynamics as well as extensive handling upgrades.

The Competition Package also comes with exclusive equipment features and a 14kW hike in power that takes output to 331kW. The extra power also means improved performance.

The BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe’s seven-speed M Double Clutch transmission sprints from rest to 100km/h in just 4.0 seconds, while the BMW M4 Convertible reaches the same speed in 4.3 seconds.

The Competition Package also includes Adaptive M Suspension, which has been extensively tuned to the enhanced performance and handling, featuring new springs, dampers and anti-roll bars, and reconfigured driving modes.

Exclusive forged, machine-polished, weight- and rigidity-optimised 20-inch M alloy wheels – front 9J × 20; rear 10 J × 20 – with exclusive multi-spoke 666 M styling and mixed tyres (front: 265/30 R20, rear: 285/30 R20) complete the list of chassis upgrades.

For the BMW M3 and BMW M4 Coupe, the Competition Package includes special lightweight M sports seats that combine perfect support under extremely hard driving with exceptional comfort on long journeys.

Seatbelts with woven-in BMW M stripes cap off an extremely sporty interior ambience. Eye-catching exterior highlights include the M sports exhaust system with black chrome tailpipes.

The most distinctive feature of the M sports exhaust system is its potent sound, which brings added emotional resonance to the driving experience.

The starting rumble and the distinctive burble on overrun never fail to get under the skin of dedicated drivers time and again.

The Competition Package for the BMW M3 and BMW M4 is topped off by 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.

Pricing of the models will be announced in due course.
