Starting spring this year, the BMW M3 Sedan, M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible will be available with a special Competition Package from BMW M GmbH that does not only make them more powerful but also more responsive to handle.
In fact, all three bodies with the Competition Package will have their power outputs increased to 444 hp for a more dynamic performance. With this amount of power, the BMW M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe -- with optional 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M-DCT) – could accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds.
Sans the Competition Package, their 0-60 mph time is 3.9 seconds. On the other hand, the BMW M4 Convertible could sprint from nil to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds. Sans the Competition Package, the BMW M4 Convertible could achieve 60 mph from standstill in 4.2 seconds. BMW M3 Sedan, M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible -- with the standard 6-speed manual transmission -- also achieves a 0-60 mph time that is 0.1 seconds faster than without the Competition Package.
One of the inclusions in the package is the Adaptive M Suspension that has been specially tuned to improve performance and handling. Adaptive M Suspension now includes new springs and dampers, as well as and anti-roll bars. It features three reconfigured driving modes -- Comfort, Sport and Sport+.
The Competitive Package also includes standard Active M Differential on the rear axle and DSC Dynamic Stability Control. Likewise, the package boasts of forged – with optimized weight and rigidity -- multi-spoke 20-inch M alloy wheels: 9J ×20 at front and 10 J ×20 at rear.
These wheels come with 265/30 R20 (front) and 285/30 R20 (rear) tires. For the BMW M3 and BMW M4 Coupe, the Competition Package features special lightweight M sports seats as well as seatbelts with woven-in BMW M stripes.
Heavily accentuating the dynamic capacity enabled by the Competition Package is the M sports exhaust system with black chrome tailpipes. Aside from giving the BMW M3 and BMW M4 Coupe dynamic looks, the M sports exhaust system lets out a potent sound and a very athletic driving performance. Last but not the least, the Competition Package for the BMW M3 and M4 includes an extended BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line exterior trim.
This package also includes high-gloss Black finish on the BMW kidney grille, side window trim, side gills, exterior mirror frames and bases, window recess finishers and model badge on the tail. Interested persons could avail of the Competition Package at $5,500 for the M3 Sedan and Coupe and $5,000 for the M4 Convertible.
