  • BMW M3/M4 Competition Package

    BMW is preparing a new generation of the 4-Series, and with it will come a new M4. There's still plenty of life in the current M4, though, especially now that BMW is sweetening the deal by offering the car's M Competition Package as a standard feature. This represents a saving of $5,000. Launched in early 2016, the package boosts power from the car's 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 from 425 to 444 horsepower. The package also enhances the handling via an upgraded suspension, reconfigured driving modes, and the Active M Differential rear diff. It also adds a set of unique 20-inch light alloys...

  • 2018 BMW M4

    The BMW M3 and M3 are about to become a little less special as both the sport sedan and coupe will switch from carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) driveshafts to fairly commonplace steel components.

BMW plans to add a particulate filter to the exhaust system in the near future and the CFRP driveshafts simply don't mesh with the emissions equipment. However, BMW assures enthusiasts that the steel units have been...
