The M3's reputation for dynamic ability is legendary. With such a reputation to uphold, the task for the new generation was not to simply meet expectations in this area but exceed them – a challenge that was embraced by our engineers with an obsessive dedication. Every single element of the new M3 Competition has been systematically enhanced to yield an incredible level of technical excellence that resets an elite benchmark in performance.
"With the Competition versions of the new BMW M3 Sedan, we are addressing maximum dynamics in regards power development and transfer"

POWER AT ITS HEART.
M DRIVE PROFESSIONAL.
Developed specifically for track driving, discover the full potential of the M3 Competition Saloon with M Drive Professional. It helps you drive the perfect line and the perfect lap, and even helps master drifting with the M Drift Analyser.
SPORTS EXHAUST SYSTEM.
The engine’s immense thrust is accompanied by a stirring soundtrack courtesy of the specially designed dual-branch exhaust system that feeds into the unmistakable quartet of tailpipes finished in Black Chrome. Fine-tuning of the engine sound, using electrically controlled flaps, suppresses intrusive frequency ranges and gives greater voice to the engine’s linear power delivery and high-revving tendencies. Its acoustic character automatically changes according to the driving mode selected or the driver can manually adapt the engine’s aural impact using the M Sound Control button on the centre console.
M ADAPTIVE SUSPENSION.
The chassis setup has been carefully adjusted to the engine’s higher output and perfectly tuned with the suspension system to offer remarkable versatility from the demands of track use to everyday driving and long distance comfort. The electronically controlled shock absorbers of the adaptive M suspension optimise road contact and traction in every situation with the use of electromagnetically controlled valves that react in milliseconds to generate the required damping force – infinitely variable and set for each individual wheel. Basic damper characteristics can be adjusted via the M Setup menu. The driver can select from three modes – COMFORT, SPORT and the track-focused SPORT PLUS.
M DRIVER'S PACK.
Designed for drivers that want to fully exploit their race track performance, the optional M Driver's Pack increases the top speed of your BMW M3 Competition Saloon to 180 mph / 289 km/h. The pack also includes a voucher for a BMW M Intensive Driver Training session.
