Price cuts across BMWs M3 and M4 range amid equipment gains and detail tweaks.
BMW has slashed prices across its M3 and M4 performance models as the brand new Mercedes-AMG C63 muscles in on its territory.
The M3 sedan now starts at $139,900, down from $156,430 and now less than the $154,510 twin-turbo V8-powered AMG sedan.
In addition to the price drop, the M3 now also comes with more standard equipment and gets subtle styling revisions in line with the recently revealed 3 Series facelift.
New features include a tyre pressure monitoring system, head-up display, lane departure warning, adaptive LED headlights, Internet connectivity and full Merino leather on the dashboard and glove box.
Styling changes are limited to revised head and taillights from the updated 3 Series range.
BMW has also dropped the price of the M4 coupe and convertible models with the fixed-roof model now starting at $149,900 – down from $166,430.
The drop-top M4 Convertible receives the most extreme price drop and is now priced from $161,900, down from $178,430.
As before, the M3 and M4 models are powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbo straight six pumping out 317kW and 550Nm, which is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch auto or six-speed manual transmission.
With the auto ‘box, the fixed-roof models sprint to 100km/h in 4.1 seconds while the convertible takes 4.4 seconds.
All models are rear-wheel drive only, and drive is controlled through an electronic limited slip differential.
