A new special edition of the BMW 3 Series is introduced in Japan just a few days before the premiere of the 3 Series Facelift.

The BMW 3 Series M Sport Style Edge celebrates the 40th anniversary of the BMW 3 Series which has offered sheer driving pleasure to customers from all-around the world.

The sporty character is the basis for this special 3 Series M Sport Style Edge which is only available with the M Sport package and thus more dynamic looking. In addition to the more aggressive aprons and black BMW M Performance kidney grille, the sedan is fitted with 18-inch wheels in Ferric Grey.
