BMW had two, seemingly divergent goals that needed to be met with the new M3. The new car had to be both faster and easier to live with, making more power than the previous model, but also getting better fuel economy. BMW tackled the problem by replacing the old V8 with a twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder engine for the 2015 model year. The new engine makes 425 hp, 11 more horsepower than last year's engine. More impressive however, is the 406 lb-feet of torque that the new 6-cylinder engine offers, 121 ft-lbs more than the old V8 made. BMW claims that the new 6-cylinder engine is up to 25 percent more fuel efficient... Read More
The 2015 BMW M3 is a new addition to the 3 Series range and serves as its most performance-oriented variant. Coupe and convertible models are now called the M4 since BMW separated them from the 3 Series range and turned them into the 4 Series.
The 2015 BMW M3 is the performance variant of the 3 Series sedan and is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6 rated at 425 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. The rear-drive M3 uses a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Fuel economy is decent for a performance car at 17/26 mpg city/highway with the manual and 17/24 mpg with the automatic.
Along the way, I learned that the M3 will indeed surf: I dropped the rear seats to squeeze in a 7-foot surfboard on numerous occasions and even used a neat suction cup rack provided by our friends at Sea Sucker to carry a 10-foot longboard to my local break.
“The M3 was an excellent candidate for the pilot episode on oversteer, as its minimal turbo lag and strong midrange torque could create long-lasting slides for the cameras, even with four actors on board with me! Believe me, the squeals of delight caught on film are genuine. In fact, the tail was more than ready to slide out at most times. Also impressive was the wear of the Michelin Pilot SuperSport tires, even under duress. The spares we brought were not necessary. Camera-car drive-bys were also facilitated by the strong and fade-free brakes. The standard non-adjustable suspension was a tad soft for extreme track work but pays back in street comfort.”
At the end of our time with the M3, we sent it off in a manner befitting an Ultimate Driving Machine. For the pilot episode of his new YouTube program, “
So here are things I would do differently if I could order the M3 again. I’d skip the $8,150 M carbon-ceramic brake package and instead spend $4,900 on the Executive package for the smartkey, park distance control, and rearview camera. (On the refreshed 2016 model, the smartkey, one year of satellite radio, and a Harmon Kardon sound system are standard on all models and the Executive package costs $3,500.) With the leftover cash, I’d put $1,000 toward the M adaptive dampers and save the rest for speeding tickets.
The M3 is an impressive performer in a practical package thanks to its sedan body style and track-ready performance. In a
BMW has lightened up the M3's chassis as well. With aluminum hood and fenders and carbon-fiber reinforced-plastic bits, the end result is a car that's about 176 pounds lighter than the previous M3, at just under 3,300 pounds. Extensive use of aluminum, including in the front fenders and hood, as well as carbon fiber in the trunk lid, driveshaft, and roof, help save the weight and keep what weight remains lower and more toward the center of the car for further improvements to handling and balance.

So what are the key stats on the industry's long-time benchmark sport luxury sedan? Power is up from the previous 4.0-liter V-8's 414 horsepower to a stout 425 horsepower courtesy of a 3.0-liter twin-turbo in-line six-cylinder. Unlike many turbo engines, this one revs to 7,600 rpm, and carries its peak output from 5,500 rpm to 7,300 rpm. Peak torque for the new engine is 406 pound-feet, available from 1,800 rpm to 5,500 rpm. The myriad changes to the in-line six earn it a new name (S55) and of course, those hugely upgraded power ratings, but the S55 also has a droning, artificially generated engine noise that really underserves the classic BMW in-line six sound.

The BMW M3 is based on the M-series, but takes things up a notch or three. With each new version comes more impressive equipment: the current model comes with a 10-speaker sound system and a hardtop roof for the convertible. Additional extras include 19-inch wheels, an iDrive navigation system and personalized performance settings.
The most sought-after engine in the M3 range is the 3.2L 6-cylinder seen in the E36 and E46. The E36 was first imported into America in 1995 and was part of the car'’s second generation. Performance was the defining factor in its popularity, with 240hp through its six cylinders leaving BMW fans wanting even more next time.
Whereas any sports-car maker claims development time at Germany's Nürburgring circuit, BMW says it put in "thousands of laps" on the famed track. BMW says the M3 and M4 use lots of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic, which we've seen extensively on the automaker's new i8 sports car. Both the M3 and M4 have carbon-fiber roofs. Both cars also have reworked bumpers with larger air intakes and frontal air curtains to redirect airflow. The M3 gets a slight trunk lid spoiler, while the M4's deck lid juts up enough to do the job without a dedicated spoiler. Like in past M cars, the side mirrors have twin supports, though the upper one is fake. LED headlights are optional.
Overall power comes to 425 hp from 5,500 to 7,300 rpm and 406 pounds-feet of torque at just 1,850 rpm. That's up from the last M3's 414 hp at a sky-high 8,300 rpm and 295 pounds-feet of torque at 3,900 rpm. BMW says weight drops some 175 pounds versus the M3 coupe, whose 3,704-pound curb weight already outdid its class - 112 and 308 pounds lighter, respectively, than the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and Audi RS 5 coupes. Both competitors employ normally aspirated V-8s, however, and future versions could drop a couple cylinders and their attendant ballast. BMW has a considerable lead, but only for now.

I have wanted an M3 since I was a kid. Grew up with 2002 & e30 325i and always wanted to own a BMW for myself. I finally went for it and found a decent low miles sort of unmolested 97 M3 coupe. It wasn't perfect but it's not my daily & it's going to be a weekend toy. I knew going in that it would need work to get it to a condition I would be comfortable taking it from SF to LA. I had a BMW shop run an inspection they said it had leaky steering rack other than that minor stuff to fix. Compression was good so I am happy. It's an old car at this point you basically get what you pay for. If you do some research plenty of online check lists and YouTube videos to do decent pre purchase inspection. Check for cracked shock towers bam!
Carfax currently has 351 used BMW M3s, 83% with no previously reported accidents. At the moment the average price is $59,070, while 92% have service records and 68% have had only one previous owner. You’ll also be able to find plenty of vehicles with Heated Seats, Handsfree/Bluetooth Integration and DVD.
With so many features packed into this sporty drive, the legendary M3 is a very popular used car and should retain a lot of its value if it is well looked after.
I bought the E46 M3 because it's a classic car. I use the car for pleasure or on the weekends. I have a 2005 M3 Competition Package (Interlargos blue). This was a hard car to come by, but patience will pay off. Probably the best car I've had. You all need to own a E46 M3 at least once in this lifetime, this was my dream car since I was 13 years old and finally got my hands on one.

panel used on the coupe albeit in a slightly different size and shape. BMW lined the trunk in the lightweight CFRP composite too while the piece de resistance has to be the gorgeous carbon fibre strut brace spanning the shock towers under the new domed hood. That hood is aluminum as are the bulging front fenders the doors and much of the suspension components underneath. All of this adds up to an M3 that performs much better than the previous iteration both on the road and track as well as at the pump. Gone are the days that a fuel-economy-be-damned attitude can be seen as acceptable at least not at BMW.

non-M 4 Series brethren. For Bimmer purists this is sacrilege. For performance enthusiasts who will just be glad a compact four-door variant is back in the M fold since its departure at the end of the 2011 model year this is a moot point that matters about as much as whether 400-plus horsepower is made from a V8 or turbocharged six. Well that last point might matter a bit more. For 2015 BMW has taken its M3 and M4 models back to their classic straight-six configuration no doubt satisfying many of those purists. The previous generation's 4.0-litre V8 while a sonorous jewel that so loved lofty revs couldn't muster up anywhere near the torque of the M division's latest twin mono-scroll turbocharged monster.

incorporates something called Digital Motor Electronics (DME) which combines the engine and exhaust notes together before digitally enhancing them and feeding it all through the Harmon/Kardon audio system. You'd never know without reading it first but it's true and as previously testified it's wonderful. After all why should strangers that turn their heads your way as you blast past enjoy all the mechanical music instead of you the one who shelled out 75 Gs? The stereo is very skilled at playing music too while the rest of the infotainment system is one of the best in the luxury business. Odd when you think about how much negativity BMW absorbed when it first introduced iDrive to the masses but while
being an early adapter might be painful in the short term it has its advantages when all the bugs are finally exorcised out. Now iDrive is a joy to operate and more deeply layered with utile functionality than most of its peers. Likewise the system's colour displays deliver rich colours and crystal clarity while additional tech such as optional head-up display adds truly useful information where your eyes should be focused on the road ahead. If you were thinking BMW kept all of its carbon fibre goodness on the outside and under the hood and trunk lid you'd be back in fantasyland because the M3's cabin basks in dark grey woven CFRP glory when you opt for the $500 upgrade.

uniquely crafted suspension which to be clear is not shared with the regular 3 Series (actually 70 percent of the M3 is exclusive kit) for grip that's beyond brilliant fully capable of staying planted securely on terra firma no matter how aggressively you tackle a curve or whether or not you manage to shift the six-speed manual or even more reactive seven-speed M-DCT dual-clutch gearbox with any modicum of expertise. The latter snaps to attention with the immediacy of a private in fear of latrine duty its aluminum paddle-shift automated capability shaving two-tenths of a second from the sprint to 100 km/h and that's when the manual is driven by an expert. Either gearbox blips the throttle when downshifting making you sound like that expert even if the majority of your track time has been spent on Forza Motorsport while the manual's pedals are set up for true heel and toe shifting.

Of course there's more to how well a car drives than merely comparisons between engine output acceleration times and overall mass. Certainly these numbers prove that the new M3 is quicker off the line but is it more of an adrenaline rush? That depends on what exactly turns your crank. Have you watched a Formula 1 race this year? If you have you'll notice the new 1.6-litre V6 turbocharged engines with their complex dual energy recovery systems don't make the same high-pitched whine as the old 2.4-litre V8s the cause of much complaint.
BMW M6 Convertible Wheels Rims BMW M3 M4 SPORT CAR Accessories Sport Metal Watch
Updated 08/13/2013: BMW has dropped a teaser video of the upcoming M3 sports sedan. The video offers us the first listen to the new straight-six engine.
What lies underneath the new M3 is just as impressive as the drivetrain, if not more so. Low weight and high rigidity topped BMW’s list for essential inclusions for all the suspension and axle components.
Updated 08/28/2013: Our spy photographers caught the 2014 M3 out testing again, but this time, it is wearing very little camo. Basically, BMW only covered up its M styling goodies and the new to-the-grille headlights. You can see the newest spy shots after the jump.
Keeping all that technology cool on race day can be a challenge, but one the BMW engineers met some serious solutions. Perched alongside the turbo is an indirect intercooler that maximizes charger pressure. Besides the main radiator, the M3 is also cooled by a water cooler positioned to the side of the high- and low-temperature water circuits, along with the engine and transmission oil coolers. The turbos get their own electronic water pump that keeps the bearing mounts from frying while the M3 is stationary.
The BMW M3 has been a staple of two- and four-door performance for over 25 years, and this latest version is an evolution of that. BMW did not reinvent the wheel with the 2015 M3, but rather made improvements where they were needed. Carbon Fiber and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics find their way into the sedan to the benefit of weight-savings and rigidity.
The decision to introduce the two-door 4 Series and its subsequent M4 will leave the M3 to thunder around with four complete doors for the foreseeable future, while the M4 will likely see many tuners gravitating towards the smaller car for hard-core track tuning. Either way, we’re glad BMW split up the models and created some much-needed consistency within their model lineup.
Besides the missing rubber bushings, the rear axle is also short three kilograms (6.6 pounds) of weight as well. The control arms and wheel carriers are manufactured using forged aluminum, as are the 18-inch and optional 19-inch wheels. The reduced unsprung mass is said to improve handling without compromising the ride comfort, but we have our doubts about such claims.
Estimated Arrival and Price: The 2015 BMW M3 will make its debut near the end of this year, probably as a thinly veiled concept. Production is scheduled to begin early next year, with models likely arriving at dealerships in the spring of 2014. Pricing shouldn't move too much from that of the current M3, which starts at $62,295, but don't be surprised by a base price approaching $65K.

All that weight was evident in the xDrive35i. Powered by a 300-hp turbocharged inline-six making 300 lb-ft of torque, the xDrive35i drives all four wheels from an eight-speed automatic transmission. Three hundred horsepower used to be a lot, but in the 4830-pound vehicle it felt slow and inadequate. Much of that has to do with the power curve, which left the engine feeling weak at low revs before the boost came on, and the fuel economy-minded transmission. The test track revealed a perfectly acceptable 5.9-second 0-to-60-mph sprint, and the quarter mile elapsed in 14.5 seconds at 95.2 mph. Braking was also good at 116 feet to a stop from 60 mph. On the skidpad, the xDrive35i returned 0.81 g average and posted a 26.8-second figure-eight lap time at an average of 0.69 g.
Driving a '37 BMW 328 on a tour was restoration fanatic Lothar Schüttler, a former winner of the BMW Clubs International Council's Prof. Dr. Gerhard Knöchlein award. The honor singles out owners who keep their older BMWs near-perfect and allow the public access to them. He drove 7,400 miles one month in a Z8, from D.C. to Washington state, to participate in a rally in British Columbia and toured 1,200 miles through Germany in 2003 in a 1956 502 convertible.
Our best overall impression of the M3 is that even in lane-squeezed construction on I-77 south of Charleston, West Virginia, we loafed along while the speedo needle waved at 80 mph (tach at just 2,200 in seventh gear), and average fuel economy stuck steadfastly at 27.4 mpg. Out of pocket, the trip to Amelia cost $83.57 one way in gas, yet returned priceless impressions of how gradual the pre-spring East Coast warms and becomes fragrant in a single day riding downhill 6,000 feet from the Appalachians to the sandy shore of north Florida. Moving a person and those pristine volumes in the backseat with this much confidence that cheaply is quite impressive.
BMW uses 2015 Amelia Island Concours to celebrate 40th anniversary of first US race win
While we're sad to see our M3 leave the garage, we're delighted we could fete it one final time while celebrating the marque with a like-minded group.
On our Amelia drive, we checked our long-term M3's oil ourselves, because we liked when our heroes Posey, Redman, Stuck and Auberlen did the same in 1975. And on our return from those southern climes, we finally peeled off those Sottozeros and had the proper Michelin Pilot Super Sports put in their place. The only other maintenance required of our BMW for the duration involved a new set of windshield wipers.
By the time we had to turn in the keys, our blue Bimmer tallied a respectable 20,658.5 miles, while consistently returning over 20 mpg, finally settling at 21.7 on the year. Considering the car's official EPA combined mileage is 19 mpg, color us impressed—especially due to how, ahem, generous we are with the right pedal.
wanted to race. Tempting. In Florida, occupants in an older E46 (third-generation) M3 gave thumbs up and waved when they saw our (fifth-gen) car. Finally, at the Ritz in Amelia, one formally dressed lady said she loved the interior, and this was while it was next to a horde of
In typical BMW fashion, the options list for the 2015 3 Series is both extensive and pricey, making it fairly easy to push even the entry-level 320i into the $45,000 range. However, some features are worth their weight in gold, including the Surround View camera, a hands-free power trunklid that opens by waving your foot under the bumper, and navigation with programmable waypoints, a head-up display, and adaptive cruise control The sport seats, aerodynamic enhancements, suspension tuning, and lightweight wheels of the available M Sport Package help bridge the performance gap between the standard 3 Series and the fire-breathing M3.
BMW APPS Among the apps iPhone users can use through the BMW Apps feature - apps like Glympse location sharing data, and audio books from Audible - BMW added a new feature: full integration with the GoPro camera app, including the ability to preview your video, and control the camera through iDrive. SURROUND VIEW SYSTEM We're starting to think that a 360-degree camera-view around a car should be standard equipment on everything. The BMW 3 Series has one of the better systems, offering the birds-eye view plus a selectable Side View function, letting you monitor traffic crossing in front of the car.
Driving Impressions It's hard to talk about the 2015 BMW 3 Series without paraphrasing the Bavarian automaker's famous tagline. These cars - from the base 320i to the all-conquering M3 - put...
... a focus on driving pleasure, a trait that consistently puts them at or near the top of the segment in terms of ride and handling. The lone exception is the Gran Turismo hatchback, which isn't as nimble as its smaller, lighter siblings. The 335i's turbocharged 6-cylinder is good for 5.4-second 0-60 bursts, but the turbo-4 in the 328i is only about a half-second slower. The 320i gets to 60 mph in a still-quick 7.1 seconds. Even the diesel is no slouch, but it's the 2015 M3, with its 0-60 mph time of less than four seconds, that holds top bragging rights. Most 3 Series models come with a fuel-saving stop/start feature. Unfortunately it shudders when the engine restarts - luckily, you can deactivate it.

When it comes to safety, M3 delivers. It comes with lots of safety features, such as dual front side- mounted airbags, electronic brakeforce distribution, and dusk sensing headlamps, not to mention emergency braking preparation and many other safety features that will make sure that your ride in this BMW is as safe as possible. In short, BMW M3 is one of the safest sport cars.
