Synopsis

Recently, BMW lifted up the covers from the exciting 2015 BMW M3 sedan and M4, both of which are based on the 3-series and are high-performance versions of it. Both of these are named by the new BMW naming convention which uses odd numbers for cars with four doors and even numbers for cars with two doors. These rear-wheel drives are both lighter and more powerful than before, which will work in the favour of BMW. Although, M3 has seen a lot of changes since its first appearance in 1983, it has always been a dream comes true for hot shoe as well as normal drivers with its small size, powerful engines and outstanding handling. Let's check out what this new M3 sedan has got to offer.

The exterior of 2015 BMW M3 sedan is a perfect blend of aggressive and sporty design, peaceful demeanour of a normal car and a truly menacing M3 look. It has got four doors, large front air inlets for optimal engine cooling, a power-dome that delineates the shape of the turbocharger engine, an air curtain and the vertical side M gills with integrated air breather for a fine touch of aerodynamics, a large front apron, sporty body colored front and rear bumper, gurney-like rear lip spoiler and a smooth underbelly for down force, air channelled through engine oil cooler to create Venturi effect and to reduce front axle lift which improves steering response, a stylish front M double kidney grille with M3 logo, body colored twin-stalk style side mirrors with integrated side indicators, twin rear tailpipe, wide and narrow new front headlights, body colored door handles, stylish 18-inch light-alloy wheels with 255/40 front and 275/40 rear rubber and the optional 19-inch M double-spoke alloy wheels(available in black too) and beautiful rear tail lights.

2015 BMW M3 sedan has got the new shell-shaped M sport seats with illuminated logos for perfect ergonomics and side stability, a one-piece back panel, an optional electronic adjustment and color contrast stitching, large options for customization with a total of 9 upholstery options(cloth/leather carbon structure anthracite, silverstone merino extended leather, sakhir orange merino extended leather, sonoma beige merino extended leather, black merino extended leather, silverstone merino full leather, sakhir orange merino full leather, sonoma beige merino full leather and black merino full leather), 4 interior trim finishing options(blue shadow finishing, carbon fiber finishing, aluminum blade finishing and fine-wood trim fineline anthracite finishing) and 3 accent lines(Akzentleisten) options(black highgloss, pearl gloss chrome and black chrome), a leather-clad tri-spoke electric power steering wheel with Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes, a carbon fiber dash insert, M-style door sills, gearshift lever, driver's footrest and circular instruments with white graphics, the 60/40 split rear seats, switchable stability and traction control systems, BMW's M Dynamic Mode, familiar looking infotainment system with a touchscreen LCD, BMW M Laptimer app for smartphones, a powerful dual-zone automatic air-conditioning system with air filter and front and rear vents and many other features to give you a heavenly experience.
