On its own, the 2018 BMW M3 is an exceptionally impressive vehicle. It sits low and muscular, marked by bold body lines that accentuate its prowess for performance. On the inside, it exudes the level of luxury and sophistication that defines BMW with an added air of performance-driven intent. With the mighty 3.0-liter BMW TwinPower inline six-cylinder under the hood, it performs at level that substantiates its powerful aesthetic.
Still, there is always room for more. More style. More luxury. More power. For that, there is the 2018 BMW M3 Competition Package.
The Competition Package enhances the eminent curb appeal of the BMW M3 with exclusive 20-inch M Forged Star-Spoke alloy wheels available in polished or black finish; black-chrome dual tailpipes; and high-gloss black kidney grille frame, side gills and rear M3 badging. These accents complement the M3 Sedan’s Carbon Fiber roof, dynamic twin headlamps and eye-catching color options like Yas Marina Blue Metallic and Austin Yellow Metallic.
On the inside, the M3 Competition Package offers M Sport seats with front seat belts bearing M Stripes and breakthrough elements in the seatback. It’s offered standard with a performance focused combination of black leather upholstery and anthracite Carbon Structure cloth; extended Merino leather is available in eight different color combinations and full Merino leather is available in three combinations.
The biggest upgrade offered with the 2018 BMW M3 Competition Package by far is performance. Enhanced dynamics increase the BMW TwinPower engine’s output to 444 horsepower, enabling quicker 0 to 60 mph acceleration at 3.8 seconds. New settings for the Active M Differential, Active M Suspension and Dynamic Stability Control provide smoother power delivery and more precise handling, while a more direct steering ratio improves responsiveness.
The 2018 BMW M3 is a performance-oriented executive sedan without equal, and the Competition Package offers an even increased level of power and unique style.
