BMW M3 Sedan, M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible are receiving the best gift for the New Year. The drivers of those models will have the chance to enhance them with the unlimited (almost) BMW Competition Package. The additional equipment will not only make their car look sportier, but will also enhance the dynamics even further. This means that besides the extensive handling upgrades, the pack also adds styling features and raises the power output to 444 hp.
This extra power links of course to improved performance. When equipped with the optional 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M-DCT), the coupe and sedan sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, which is 0.1 seconds faster than without Competition Package. On the other hand, the M4 Convertible reaches the same speed in 4.1 seconds with the same difference without the Competition Package.
BMW Competition Package
To go into details, the pack adds Adaptive M Suspension, which has been extensively tuned to the boost the performance and handling. It now includes brand new springs, dampers and anti-roll bars and reconfigured driving modes, Comfort, Sport and Sport+. Reconfigurations have been also happening to the standard Active M Differential on the rear axle and DSC Dynamic Stability Control.
Furthermore, if you opt for the Competition Package you will also get brand new wheels. Here we have forged and weight-and rigidity-optimized multi-spoke 20-inch M alloys coupled with tires sized at 265/30 R20 up front and 285/30 R20 at the rear.
But the list of goodies does not end here. The M3 and M4 Coupe also get with the pack lightweight M sports seats and seatbelts with woven-in BMW M stripes. On the outside, the exterior highlights feature M sports exhaust system with black chrome tailpipes. The exhaust is not only good looking but very well sounding.
The pack is also topped off by extended BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line exterior trim. Adding to the standard high-gloss Black finish on some parts, the customers will get gloss Black finish on the BMW kidney grille, the side gills and the model badge on the tail.
All of this will cost the M3 Coupe and M4 Sedan owners $5,500 USD, while the M4 Convertible $5,000 USD.
