Nick Murray is back again on his Youtube channel with a comparison between the exhaust sound of a 2015 BMW M4 Coupe and a 2016 BMW M3 sedan. What the video seems to reveal is that the 2016 F80 M3 actually received an exhaust sound update when compared to the first year model.

For testing purposes, both cars were in Sport+ and with the stock exhaust system. Unverified accounts say that the 2016 M3 and M4 models have received a slight exhaust update, but it’s unclear whether it’s a mechanical or a software upgrade. Judging by the video below, the sound of the 2016 M3 is deeper with a louder growl, but won’t be immediately noticeable unless compared next to the previous model.

    Horatiu any news on the 9 series?

  2. William C. says:

    I have a question: is there a reason why the facelifted M3 doesn’t get the updated headlights just like any other 3 series LCI?

    Anyway the sound actually seems only a little different, probably it received just a software update.

  3. Crux says:

    I haven’t kept up with the news lately. Is the F82 getting the laser lights option?

  4. John says:

    Maybe they updated the software that pipes fake noises into the stereo?

  5. Kraut says:

    Well the e60 M5 & e63 M6 had the same V10, yet the M6 had a more aggressive sound profile. 2 door vs 4 door sound profile difference. BMW might have done it again.

  6. […] since, there have been four successors to the E30 M3. Its most recent iteration, the F80 BMW M3, broke new ground by switching to turbocharged engine for the first time in the M3’s history. […]
