First drives of the 2016 BMW M3/M4 Competition Package are starting to come in. Along with the first driving impressions, a new set of photos have also popped up on the interwebs. BMW UK gives us a closer look at a Sakhir Orange M3 Sedan and Alpine White M4, both equipped with the new Competition Package.
The Competition Package includes Adaptive M Suspension – which has been extensively tuned to the enhanced performance and handling – new springs, dampers and anti-roll bars, along with reconfigured driving modes (Comfort, Sport and Sport+). BMW also retuned the electronic differential and the Dynamic Stability Control to match the upgraded hardware.
BMW M3 Sakhir Orange Competition Package
Exclusive forged, machine-polished, weight- and rigidity-optimized 20-inch M alloy wheels – front 9J × 20; rear 10 J × 20 – with exclusive multi-spoke 666 M styling and mixed tires (front: 265/30 R20, rear: 285/30 R20) complete the list of chassis upgrades.
An M sports exhaust system with black chrome tailpipes and a louder growl is included in the price as well.
BMW M4 Alpine White Competition Package
The interior remains largely unchanged, but Competition Package cars get new lightweight sport seats with seatbelts with woven-in BMW M stripes. The 444 horsepower (450 hp in Europe) will cost $5,500 for the M3 sedan and M4 Coupe, and $5,000 for the M4 Convertible.
