The BMW M3 and M4 2017 edition are sleek, stylish cars with a reliable performance quotient. But, what if you wish to power them up? Just opt for the new competition package and it will be accomplished.
A brand new competition package has been rolled out by the company BMW M GmbH. The developers of the package confirmed that the vehicle will get a significant performance boost when it is installed as well as some unique exterior changes. It will make it look sleeker and stylish than it already is.
When you choose to buy and upgrade the new generation BMW M3 and the M4, the total horsepower of the cars will get boosted from 425 to 444hp. The acceleration may not witness a significant change, as it will vary by just 0.1 seconds. It is hard to experience the difference unless you are testing the car in a test environment. The package is open for cars with any type of transmission system; be it manual or automatic, it doesn’t matter.
In the M3 and the M4 sedan coupe powered by a seven-speed M double clutch transmission system, the M3 accelerated from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds while the latter did the same in 4.1 seconds. When packages are launched, they are always focused on performance and the luxury quotient of the cars. The competition package adds Adaptive M Suspension. It includes brand new springs, anti-roll bars and dampers.
Driving modes offered by the package include Comfort, Sport and Sport+. Based on the type of mode the driver picks, the car will automatically change the dynamic stability control and the Active M differential to offer the ideal driving experience. It also includes 20-inch alloy wheels with multi-spoke design similar to the one found in the M4 GTS.
The long list of components provided by the Competition package for the BMW M3 and the M4 2017 editions just don’t seem to end. It adds black chrome tail pipes, shadow line exterior and a rear badge. The car will also receive lightweight sports seats and exclusive seatbelts with the BMW M stripes embroidered on top of it.
If you choose to buy the BMW M3 sedan competition package, it will set you back by $5,500 while the same for the BMW M4 coupe as well as the convertible has been priced at $5,000. For the performance it offers, this seems like a justified price tag.
