The extra power means improved performance. Add the optional 7-speed M Double Clutch transmission and the BMW M3 Saloon and BMW M4 Coupé sprint from zero to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds, while the BMW M4 Convertible reaches the same speed in 4.3 seconds, making the cars 0.1 seconds faster than the standard M models. The 0-62 time for models with the standard 6-speed manual transmission is also 0.1 seconds faster, compared to identical models without the package.
External highlights include exclusive forged and gloss-lathed 20" M light alloy Star-spoke wheels, optimised for rigidity, as well as an M sports exhaust system with black chrome tailpipes. Good looking, its most distinctive feature is to highlight the exhilarating engine note, making every gear change and throttle blip a sound to savour. More eye-catching features on the M3 and M4 include extended BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line exterior trim.
The high-gloss black finish has been applied not only to the standard side window trims, window recess finishers and exterior mirror frames and bases, but also to the BMW kidney grilles, the side gills and the model badge on the tail.
