Following the teasers over the weekend on BMW Malaysia’s social media channels, the company has now announced that the all-new BMW M3 and M4 Coupe – both in Competition form – are now available for booking through the BMW Shop Online platform until the 31st of December 2020.
Pricing for the base BMW M3 Competition starts at RM664,800, while the BMW M4 Competition is priced at RM684,800 – both are estimated prices on the road, without insurance. BMW Malaysia is also offering an Innovation Package with additional kit for both models.
The package, which usually costs RM75,000 for the BMW M3 Competition, will be offered at a discounted rate of RM58,000 for the pre-booking period until December 31, which essentially brings the price of the specced-out model from RM739,800 down to RM722,800.
As for the BMW M4 Competition, the package will be discounted from RM76,000 to RM56,000, bringing the price of the fully-specified car down to RM740,800 until the end of the year.
The Innovation Package consists of both functional and aesthetic parts to kit out the cars, including the Laserlight headlights, head-up display, glass roof, Connected Package, Parking Assistant with Reversing Assist, as well as the Driving Assistant package which includes forward collision warning with brake intervention, Lane Change Warning, Lane Departure Warning, as well as rear cross-traffic warning and rear collision prevention.
Other items included in the extra-cost package include a Harman Kardon surround sound system, tyre pressure monitoring system, alongside exclusive trim finishers on the interior. Interestingly, the Innovation Package on the M3 Competition includes a set of staggered 19/20-inch M forged double-spoke wheels in style 825 M, but the M4 does not get the same treatment.
As expected, the new M duos slated for Malaysia will come in Competition form, both packing a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged inline-six engine, uprated to make 510 hp and 650 Nm of torque. For those curious, the numbers are approximately 60 hp and 100 Nm higher than the outgoing Competition models, and 50 Nm higher than the BMW X3 M and X4 M Competition which are both equipped with the same powertrain.
The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission (no manual option on the Competition models), with power sent to the rear wheels for a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 3.9 seconds, onward to an electronically-limited top speed of 290 km/h.
Globally, the BMW M3 and M4 Competition will be offered for the first time ever with an xDrive all-wheel drive system – though, these will only be available from next year onwards. It is unclear at the point of writing if these models will be brought in to Malaysia, but as always, we’ll be keeping an eye out for it.
The all-new BMW M3 Competition and M4 Competition Coupe is now available for pre-booking on BMW Malaysia’s Shop Online, available here, with a booking fee of RM5,000. For those who are still unhappy with the controversial grille, perhaps pick one of these up when you put down your order!
