BMW 3 Series M3 Competition


FOR the last three decades, one of the most exciting performance-car battles has been fought in the premium mid-sized sedan segment, primarily between the three German rivals – Mercedes-AMG with its C-Class, Audi with the RS4, and BMW’s legendary M3.

First released globally in 1986, the sixth-generation M3 – along with its M4 coupe sibling – have touched down on local shores, for the first time being offered in ‘regular’ and Competition guise.
