Perfect Driving Machines Just Got Better

Starting this spring, the M3 Sedan, M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible are being offered with an optional competition package that not only provides a sportier look, but also improves power and handling. The result is overall improved performance in these dynamic sports cars, cutting tenths of a second off the time from 0 to 60 miles per hour. The package includes features like Active M suspension, which is tuned for the ultimate in handling and performance. New dampers, anti-roll bars and springs add to the configuration. The Comfort, Sport and Sport+ driving modes have also been reconfigured to be a little more aggressive. Stay in touch with Chapman BMW to see when the new BMW M-Series will be arriving in the showroom.

Interior, Exterior Dressed for Function and Beauty

The new lightweight seats that come with the competition package are not only beautiful with a woven-in BMW M stripe, but the lack of bulk also helps improve the vehicle’s performance. Molded bolsters provide additional support for runs on the track or when you put the vehicle through a twisting road run. A new dual exhaust system with chrome tips not only looks great, but provides a guttural roar that announces your arrival or departure with enthusiasm. A high gloss black finish on the exterior trim and iconic BMW kidney grille, side gills and badging complete the additional touches on the exterior.

BMW M Class Built for White Knuckle Thrills

By utilizing knowledge gained from decades on the European racing circuit, engineers created the BMW M-Series to inspire both thrills and a touch of fear into the heart of drivers and passengers alike. By using lightweight materials like carbon fiber throughout, BMW makes M-Series vehicles both light and tough to get the best performance without threatening the safety of the occupants. With a lightweight twin turbo engine delivering anywhere from 425 to 600 horsepower, taking a ride in an M Class ensures you’ll push the boundaries of good sense from time to time.

Are These Things Street Legal?

The short answer is yes, they are both legal and a heck of a lot of fun to drive. Unique innovations like a built-in lap timing app help you improve your ability on closed tracks. GoPro cameras let you film those laps and then play them back on your iDrive. If you like, BMW even offers a performance driving school where you’ll learn how to properly corner, drift, and a slew of other handy tips known only to professional race drivers. The first step is to test drive an M Series, which you can do at Chapman BMW.
