BMW of North America announces new changes to the 2018 BMW M3 Sedan starting with July 2017 production. One of the most important changes is the addition of the iDrive 6.0 with Touch Screen which is now standard in most new BMWs. BMW’s iDrive 6.0 system is currently regarded as one of the best money can buy. It was unveiled along with the new 5 Series and it improves on the already exceptional 5.0 version that made its debut aboard the current BMW 7 Series. Compared to its predecessor it brings an even simpler menu to the table, along with new hardware working quietly behind the screen fitted on the dashboard.
Other changes to the MY2018 M3 include LED Headlights now being standard and new 20 inch wheels available with the Competition Package.
Standard Equipment now includes:
- LED Headlights (5A2) replace Xenon adaptive headlights (522+524), which are no longer offered.
- The illuminated matte-chrome M badge on the seat has been redesigned to high-gloss black, and includes the M3 model name.
- iDrive 6.0 with Touch Screen Technology is standard.
