The front part is markedly different from the standard models and 3 Series. The front part is characterized by sharp and predatory features of the front bumper, LED headlights and a small grille. Note that the “muscular” hood are made of aluminum as well as the side doors. At the same time any additional laths and roof are made from lightweight carbon fiber, allowing to lower the center of gravity. Side visible original mirrors with sharp corners. On wheels mounted 19 – inch M – wheels, “wrapped” in a low-profile tires Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Behind the disc brake calipers visible gold. The back side of “boasting” four tailpipes framed by dynamic forms of the bumper.
The interior of the sedan received a huge number of “M” -aktsentov, including a new three-spoke steering wheel with paddle shifters, sport seats, carbon fiber inserts and pedals. Overall, BMW M3 interior looks and refined through the use of contrasting white leather. In contrast to the M4, the sedan received a full triple “sofa” back with the unit air flow control and socket for 12 volt. As an option, BMW offers a huge list, price list which can be a bit daunting price. Thus, among this list there is a premium audio system Haraman Kardon for $ 1000, park assist $ 500, lighting package for $ 1,900, a snow-white leather package for $ 3600 and a package of carbon-ceramic brakes for $ 8150.
