2012 Bmw M3 Convertible gets the Individual Composition Package in the U.S

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 1, 2011

BMW’s 2012 M3 coupe and convertible models, which will begin production in September, will receive modifications that are similar to those taken for the BMW Z4. The 2012 M3 coupe is priced from $59,900 while its convertible version will have a starting price of $68,550.

The 2012 models will get the following as standard equipment: anti-theft alarm, Floor Mats, new 7H8 including iPod/USB Adaptor, Bluetooth, and BMW Assist.

The stand-alone options for 2012 M3 coupe and convertible were also adjusted to take into account the new standard equipment and new Navigation Package (7KB), which is priced at $1350 to amend for standard BMW Assist, Bluetooth, and iPod/USB Adaptor. The packages were also tweaked.

The former Convenience Package and Premium Package 2 have been merged into the single Premium Package (ZPP). In addition, the power rear sunshade could be found under a package on the M3 coupe for the first time.

But what has made fans ecstatic is the BMW Individual Composition Package (XC4) that is offered with 3 unique metallic exterior individual colors (Ruby Black, Azurite, or Moonstone) to choose from.

Buyers will also get to choose from 3 unique leather colors with a higher leather surface area (Champagne, Platinum, and Rust Brown). The Individual Piano Finish Black interior trim is also available. The BMW Individual Composition Package, which costs $5,000, is only offered for the convertible model.

After more than twenty years, the M still stands as the most powerful letter in the alphabet if you ask the automotive world. The BMW M GmbH has been known to combine high-adrenaline motorsport and open-air driving philosophy in its very own convertible series.

The first ever BMW convertible was the M3 and since then, two other generations of the M series followed suit: the BMW M3 Coupé and the new generation M3 Convertible.

Now on its 4th generation convertible, the BMW M3 continues to live up to the standards. However, the latest motorsport edition is slightly different and maybe even better.

The 4th generation model now comes with the new retractable hardtop cover to protect against wind, sun and rain. The automatic roof provides superior noise control and excellent driving pleasure all year round. It is built strong enough to withstand all types of weather.

Meanwhile, the overall design provides a rather authentic sports coupé ambience while also giving an all-around visibility through its sizeable windows. The 3-piece folding roof is run by electrohydraulic system that swivels perfectly into place.

When the roof is folded back to the compartment, the 4th generation BMW M3 has all the elements of a typical convertible. This is characterised by the low waistline and low slung outline of the car, delivering an all-out motorsport experience.

Ever since BMW came up with the M series, the M3 has always embodied the motorsport philosophy. The first M3 was introduced in 1986, which later on gave birth to the first Convertible model in as short as two years. Not for long, the same design principle was applied on all succeeding BMW M3’s. It goes without saying how the basic fundamentals of the M classic keep on evolving up to this day.
