Special Features

Transmission options

The powerful M engine lays down its thrust in precisely measured doses onto the road, using the manual six-speed M transmission or the seven-speed double-clutch automatic transmission.

With a 12kg reduction in weight and a more compact shape compared to traditional models, the M 6-speed manual transmission in the new BMW M3 Saloon exemplifies intelligent lightweight construction. Inside the transmission, the new carbon fibre friction lining in the baulk rings provides more comfortable gear shifts, and a dry sump lubrication system ensures a more efficient oil supply.

Shift gears without interruption, without using the clutch and without slowing down. The 7-speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic makes this possible. Gears can be changed automatically or manually using the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel or the gear lever. Launch Control guarantees maximum acceleration from a standing start.


Active M differential

The Active M differential optimises traction and driving stability when changing lanes or accelerating out of a bend. When taking bends at high speeds or on different road surfaces, traction is optimised with the help of an electronically operated device. This reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels.


Adaptive M suspension

By electronically regulating the shock absorbers, Adaptive M suspension automatically tunes the vehicle to suit all driving conditions. The suspension settings can be modified for high comfort or sporty dynamics via the COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+ modes on the Driving Experience Control.
 
The transfer of innovative motorsport technology into the standard production cars is a focal point of BMW M GmbH. This is why the BMW M3 Saloon achieves a perfect balance between adrenaline-charged performance and everyday utility.


Launch Control

Launch Control allows maximum acceleration from a standing start. It adjusts the engine to its ideal starting speed, and the M dualclutch transmission constantly sets the gearshift points so that when shifting up, the next optimal engine speed is available.


M Drive

M Drive allows for individual configuration of the DSC mode, the appearance of the optional BMW Head-Up Display and personal driver profiles. From comfortable gliding to a sporty and highly responsive set-up, you can adjust the engine, damper, steering characteristics and transmission. Activation is a simple touch of the two M buttons integrated into the multifunction steering wheel.


M Servotronic

M Servotronic adjusts the power steering to suit the current speed so gives a direct and precise steering response, even at high speeds. It also ensures supreme comfort by minimising the physical effort required for steering, as well as maximising agility when parking, manoeuvring or navigating twisted roads.


M Dynamic Mode

M Dynamic Mode, a function of Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), allows a certain degree of wheel slip, thus noticeably improving driving dynamics. While the DSC works against understeer and oversteer, the M Dynamic Mode enables the full exploitation of the car's maximum longitudinal and lateral driving potential.


Ultimate brakes

Crucial to the highly dynamic driving experience in the BMW M3 Saloon is the braking system. With gripping precision and efficiency, M Compound brakes and the optional M Carbon ceramic brakes are top achievers in terms of response and performance.


M Compound brakes

Thanks to the use of various materials, M Compound brakes achieve outstanding deceleration values, are extremely stable and highly durable. They also weigh less, thus improving agility, dynamics and acceleration. The Blue metallic brake callipers with the M logo are the hallmark of these high-performance M brakes.


M Carbon ceramic brakes

The M Carbon ceramic brakes deliver stopping power more directly. They’re non-corrosive, resistant to abrasion, tolerant of more heat and contribute to a lower vehicle weight, thus improving agility and acceleration. Matt Gold-coloured brake callipers with the M logo make them visible from outside the car.
