e9x m3 special models

There are too many E9x M3 special editions for us to be able to cover them all here – 27 in total – so we'll just concentrate on the ones that were sold worldwide, rather than the ones created for specific markets. EDITION The Edition was produced for six months in 2009 and featured black chrome kidney grilles, wing vents and exhaust tips along with Jet black bonnet vents and mirror caps. The car sat on 19” 220M wheels in either Jet black, silver or white with polished spokes and was fitted with 10mm shorter springs. There were five exterior colours to choose from, each with contrasting interior trim elements, and all cars came with special chequered flag door sill trims. 2009 707 cars built Black chrome grilles, side vents and exhaust…

go beyond

The E30 M3 is a true performance icon, an absolute motoring legend. When it arrived 35 years ago it was an instant success and there’s a reason we’re going all-out to celebrate this M anniversary. It’s a car that any M fan, any BMW enthusiast, would love to own – it delivers such a pure driving experience, it’s so perfectly balanced, so exciting, it looks so good, everything about it is sheer perfection. No wonder it’s held in such incredibly high regard, no wonder it is still considered to be one of the greatest driver’s cars of all time and no wonder it is so incredibly sought-after. The thing is, being an icon means that the E30 M3 is not exactly an attainable purchase for most fans – there aren’t…

g80 m3 competition and g82 m4 competition

This is the fourth time in the history of the M3 that lucky buyers have been put in the position of having to decide between two-or four-doors on their M machine. Before we begin on the technical aspects, things look ominously weighted against the M4 Competition. For starters, it’s £1300 more expensive than the M3 Competition, and it’s obviously less practical with fewer doors and a boot that’s smaller by 40-litres and that matters in a car that has everyday appeal. It would help if the M4 were stunning to behold, but both M cars wear BMW’s controversial new front grille – styling is subjective and beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that so we’ll leave that part of the car alone. Beyond the A-pillar, the…

e46 m3

WHY YOU WANT ONE The E46 M3 really needs no introduction and, for many enthusiasts, this is the ultimate all-round M3. Smaller and lighter than the E9x M3, it's a more focused, more raw and arguably more engaging machine that delivers a slightly purer driving experience and with that in mind, it's easy to understand why it's so popular. The chassis is exceptional and the S54 is a masterpiece of an engine that will never fail to stir your soul with its soaring straight-six soundtrack. It's a comfortable car, too, and decent on fuel plus it looks fantastic, making this an M3 that's hard to beat. WHAT TO PAY E46 M3 prices have definitely crept up over the past few years but they haven't skyrocketed like other M cars so we reckon if…
