For the convertible (automatic version) consumption is reduced to 11.5 liters /100 km. All variants of the BMW M3 will in future meet the Euro 5 emissions standard.
Retrofitting options and a competition package also upgrade the look of the M3. The latter enables the BMW M3 to be lowered by around ten millimeters and includes, among other things, new light alloy wheels in the formats 9x19 inches at the front and 10x19 inches at the rear. The control of the electronic damper adjustment EDC including a sport mode specially developed for the Competition Package using map control is also adapted to the change in the chassis.
