What’s a BMW M3/M4 Competition Pack then?
A BMW M3 or M4 with the volume turned up a few extra notches. We weren’t aware the M3 and M4 had any extra notches, but it seems BMW has been sandbagging a bit.
What do I need to know?
A but of tinkering with the 3.0-litre, twin-turbo straight-six engine has bumped power by 19bhp up to 444bhp. Spec the optional DCT dual-clutch gearbox and the result for the tintop M3/M4 is a 0-62mph time of exactly four seconds, 0.1secs quicker than the standard car (the M4 convertible hits the in 4.3secs).
265/30 front and 285/30 rear tyres on 20in wheels translate the power to the road. The Adaptive M Suspension has been revamped with new springs, dampers and anti-roll bars, while the Active M Differential, stability control and driving modes have been retuned.
A new exhaust finishes the mods off, bringing “added emotional resonance” to the soundtrack. Which should finally silence everyone who reckons the standard engine doesn’t sound very good. Which it does.
There’s a few extra trim bits outside and bewinged sport seats inside.
How much does it cost?
No word yet, but expect to pay an extra few thousand quid on top of the base price.
