M pack sexes up 3 Series

2007-03-13 08:48
BMW steps up its product onslaught with the M sports package now being offered for its 3 Series Coupe and Convertible models. The convertible will be launched here imminently.

The two-door siblings' M Package includes an aerodynamics kit and sports suspension that lowers the car by 15 mm. Eighteen-inch light alloy wheels are standard, but optional 19-inch light alloys with run-flat tyres are available too.

From the outside, the car is further distinguished by high-gloss satin chrome trim, while the interior is equipped with sport seats finished in a combination of cloth and Alcantara leather.

Polished aluminium trim is used throughout the cabin, while an M steering wheel, footrests and door sill are also visible. The roof lining on the coupe option is available in anthracite.

The M Sports Package for the 3 Series Coupe and Convertible is available with six exterior colours, including the metallic Le Mans Blue usually reserved for M cars.

The sports pack costs R28 000 when specified for any six-cylinder 3 Series coupe.
