BMW M3 Competition Package – UK detailsMon, 15 Feb 2010 00:00:00 -0800
BMW has announced the Competition Package for the M3
We’ve had something of a run of updates and tweaks for the BMW 3 series this year. We’ve had changes for 2010 to the 3 Series Coupe and Convertible and last month we reported that there was going to be a BMW M3 Competition Package on offer very soon.
BMW has now caught up with our story and have revealed the details of the M3 Competition Package for the UK. Available on the convertible, saloon and coupe, the M3 Competition pack adds a set of lighter 19″ alloys, a new mode in the electronic damping system, revised stability control and suspension lowered by 10mm. You can also opt for a carbon fibre front apron and rear spoiler to make your new M3 stand out a bit.
But now that BMW is all about ‘Joy’ instead of being the ‘Ultimate Driving Machine’ BMW has decided to fir stop/start to the M3, on both the manual and the dual-clutch ‘box which is actually a sensible move. It has no impact on performance but does improve economy by 8% and drops Co2 by 24g/km.
The M3 Competition Package will cost you a bit over £3300 and will be available once the M3 hits the roads in the Spring. As for the stop/start, that’s a freebie whether you have the Competition Package or not.
