Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

It appears that the Bmw M3 sports car will receive several changes in September and most of the changes were made due to the feedback received from most enthusiastic customers. Ok, so what will we see in the new car?

Well, the M button found on the steering wheel can now be programmed to the drivers preferences for Stability Control, Steering mode, Shift light, EDC, but if the car has the M DCT, the Drive logic mode can also be set. 

The most important feature will be the automatic start-stop system, which will shut down the engine under certain conditions, when the car comes to a complete stop. This means reduced fuel consumption.

For those who want to deactivate this function, this can be done via a button located next to the Start/Stop button. Other improvements for the interior ar the manual M Sport Seats, which offer the same adjustments as the previous seats but operated manually, saving weight and expense.

Lumber support and seatback side bolters remain electrically adjustable. Power Seats remain standard in the M3 Convertible. A new color called Mineral White Metallic will be available on the M3 Coupe and Convertible.

Inside, new optional Bi-color Novillo Leather (non-extended) is available in black with red seating surfaces and soft door panel sections, or black with gray seating surfaces and soft door panel sections.

A new Premium Package 2 (ZP2) package is also available. This pack has the same equipment as the prior Premium Package, but adds Power Front Seats for the M3 Coupe and Sedan.

The Technology Package is replaced by the all-new Convenience Package (ZCV) which includes Anti-theft Alarm, Comfort Access, Park Distance Control (rear), Navigation system including Voice Command and Real Time Traffic, iPod and USB adaptor.
