Starting in Spring 2016, BMW M will offer a Competition Package for the M3, M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible models. In a recent interview, BMW boss Frank van Meel confirmed the power package for those who own one of the middle-class athletes from Garching.

“In addition to extensive measures to further enhance driving dynamics and agility, this package also comprises various exclusive equipment details as well as an increase in engine output,” Van Meel said without revealing – yet – the power output.

The standard M3/M4 makes 425 / 431 hp, while the BMW M4 GTS with Water Injection delivers 500 horsepower, so we expect to see a power bump with the Competition Package to around 450-460 horsepower.

The Competition Package will be presented officially at the Geneva Motor Show 2016 with a web reveal scheduled likely in February.

    I hope it will produce this kind of power, and have the sweet MPE, plus the new wheels (they look good !)… Looking forward to see by how much it will beat the C63 S and how it competes with the Giulia QV (if it comes out, eventually).

  2. Tony says:

    Car already holds its own (and often beats the competitors) with 425hp. Bump it to 450-460 and wonder what’ll happen. Especially with suspension tweaks.

  3. M says:

    It will be just +9HP so… nothing special…

    • Senne says:

      I think it will be more and as we all know: BMW is not all about hp it’s about everything. That’s why they make The Ultimate Driving Machine. :) It’s already better than the competition. The Competition Package will probably give it an even more beautiful sound. Win-win if you ask me :) And then there’s the top speed…
