Design
The motorsport DNA of the BMW M3 Saloon is unmistakable. The dynamic front end with large air inlets and the double slats of the high-gloss black kidney grille exhibits its outstanding performance. Inside, the driver-orientated cockpit inspires with its perfect ergonomics. Exclusive M seats with their shell shape offer excellent side support. All details enjoy an especially high-quality finish and convey the pure essence of motor racing.

The BMW M3 Saloon: extremely sporty, with an iconic presence and performance steeped in efficient dynamics. Every design element, from the large air inlets and expressive light-alloy wheels to the athletic rear, underscores the power of this high-performance sports car.
The side view of the BMW M3 combines high-performance sports car DNA with the everyday usability of a four-door saloon.


IMPRESSIVE.

The forward-angled front, with its high-gloss black double-bar kidney grille, M3 emblem and large air inlets is complemented by the dynamic design of the all-LED headlights. Their design and impressive brilliance ensure daytime visibility, and perfectly illuminate the road ahead at night.


EXPRESSIVE.

The rear view, with its wide track, creates a lasting impression. Progressive-design LED rear lights accentuate the resolute stance, as do the wide high-performance tyres. The M rear spoiler increases the downforce for improved aerodynamics. And the M diffuser and angled M twin exhaust pipes blend perfectly into the rear apron, with its characteristic air outlets.


AERODYNAMIC.

The two inlets for the Air Breather and the M gill elements on the sides reduce aerodynamic drag around the wheel arches and optimises the aerodynamic performance.


LIGHT.

As part of the BMW intelligent lightweight construction concept, the carbon fibre reinforced plastic roof helps to reduce the vehicle's weight, and lowers the car's centre of gravity. This increases agility and dynamics when taking a bend, and when accelerating and braking.


ACCENTUATED.

The rear lights are all LEDs - their elongated L-shape forms a fluid transition from the luggage compartment lid, accentuating the distinctive styling of the rear end.
 

EXPRESSIVE WHEELS

The weight-optimised wheels of the BMW M3 Saloon ensure a self-confident appearance. Even the standard specification features the impressive 19” M light alloy wheels with double-spoke styling in Ferric Grey. Also optionally available in Jet Black, they reveal the powerful M Carbon ceramic brake or M Compound brake with the M logo. With the optional Competition Package, 20” Star-spoke alloy wheels are standard equipment, now also available in Black.

Whichever version you opt for, the standard mixed tyres of the BMW M3 Saloon with their broader rear wheels reinforce the muscular appearance of the tail, while optimising steering control and grip.

An unadulterated racing feel: The optional Competition Package for the BMW M3 Saloon offers even better performance thanks to an enhanced engine output, a specially tuned Adaptive M suspension, new calibration of the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), the Active M differential and 20" M light alloy wheels with mixed tyres.

The output of the M TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder petrol engine has been increased to 331kW (450hp). The M sports exhaust system generates a particularly powerful, characteristic engine sound that is destined to thrill. The M lightweight sport seats are equipped with width-adjustable backrests and vertical openings. The front seat belts feature fine M striping. The specially tuned Adaptive M suspension provides optimal road contact, increased traction and agile handling.

On the exterior, the Competition Package makes a great impression with exclusive, forged and gloss-lathed 20" M light alloy Star-spoke wheels with mixed tyres. The athletic character is emphasised by the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line which runs in high-gloss Black from the front kidney grille over the gills to the model designation, ending at the black chrome-plated tailpipes.

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.
 

Customer Feedback

Thanks to Brian at BMW Blackpool for providing a fantastic service from start to finish. I hate pushy sales tactics, and I can assure you this in one place you will never find that. Brian went above and beyond to find a car in my budget and took me out for several test drives to find which series would be best for me. Would highly recommend.
