All BMW 3-series models boast fantastic chassis dynamics but the M3 raises the standards to a whole new league of its own. The BMW M3 Sedan backs up its superb handling, stable road manners, and precise steering with immensely powerful brakes that give the driver plenty of confidence in the car’s ability to keep you and your passengers out of trouble. One thing that separates the M3 from other cars is that despite its amazing capabilities as a sports car, it does not demand major sacrifices in the areas of comfort and convenience.
The BMW M3 happily does without unsightly wings and instead improves its aerodynamics at high speed by way of a new front splitter, modified rear end and full-length side skirts. These modifications, together with the M3’s lower stance and large alloy wheels and low profile tires, let observers know that this is a high performance, no-nonsense performance car. There are seven exterior colors available for the M3, while four of them have been created exclusively for the M3. Aerodynamic mirrors developed specifically for the M3 help to reduce drag and air resistance.
As far as standard equipment goes, the M3 is not lacking by any means. The options list includes CFC-free air conditioning, a driver’s airbag, remote control anti-theft system, electronic front windows, heated door locks, mirrors and screen washer nozzles, suede trim, and an on-board trip computer. Other options include an electric sun-roof, electronically adjustable front seats, cruise control, and a trunk-mounted 6 CD changer. The BMW M3 carries a full size spare wheel and tire under the floor cover in the trunk.
For a high output engine, The M3’s 3.0-liter inline-six cylinder does extremely well on fuel economy. Producing 282 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque, the BMW M3 Sedan can reach 60 mph from a stop in just 5.7 seconds, accelerating all the way up to an electronically limited 155 mph.
