New M3 with Competition Package

The new competition package available for the BMW M3 is almost sad as it is wonderful. With everyone knowing of the strong rumors of the M3's power plant changing to a V8, it's almost heart breaking to think about the legendary straight 6 cylinder being laid to rest. The competition package has many pretty neat extras that give the beamer something to beam about.

The competition package is going to be a $4000 dollar premium to the M3's price tag but I think its well worth it. You start out getting 19 inch cross-spoke forged alloy on all 4 corners. With the package you are also getting a revised interior with suede accents and of course a new color option of Interlagos blue only available if you get the competition package. One thing that can't be left out of the competition version is the upgraded brakes that come with it. The brakes are cross drilled and 20 MM bigger then the standard M3, the cross drilled rotors are the first BMW has ever equipped from the production line. BMW's are created by drivers for the experienced auto enthusiasts the sport button on the M3 actually does something? It changes the calibration from throttle body to pedal. That means without the sport button depressed the throttle won't open all the way. Since there is more air into the engine the fuel mapping of the car also changes when the button is pushed.

In all I think for the four thousand extra it is well worth it. Also I would check out the SMG transmission that is available for it too. The SMG or sequential manual transmission is awesome. You can change the manual gear box hydraulically via paddle shifters or stick which allows you to late brake and accelerate easier out of the apex of corners.
