The 2016 BMW M3 and M4 gets a price increase in the US. The Munich-based automaker has increased the base price by about two percent over the 2015 models, but it comes with more standard features.
At $64,195, the 2016 M3 sedan is up by $1245. The M4 Coupe now starts at $66,395 and the 2016 M4 convertible will now set you back $74,895, $1445 more than 2015. The Harman Kardon surround sound is now standard ($875 before), along with satellite radio and keyless entry. The M4 Convertible also gets standard a center pass-through in the rear seats for hauling.
The latest-generation Navigation system Professional with LTE – the fastest mobile standard currently available – is now also an option for the BMW M3/M4.
The 2016 BMW M3 now also gains newly designed full-LED rear lights and chrome highlights for the interior. BMW has been using LED lighting in tail lamps for some time. One immediate benefit of LED’s is they are instant on – unlike an incandescent bulb which has to warm up (producing resistance which creates light – and heat, think of incandescent bulbs as a mini-toaster, like an ‘Easy-Bake’ oven). The beauty of the LED lamps is that they provide a decided packaging benefit, they are exceptionally thin. They also are exceptionally efficient – they save weight and electrical power.
BMW is dropping Sakhir Orange Metallic paint from its available options and will only make it available through a custom order.
