F80/F82/F83 M3 and M4 (2015 - Current)
F80 BMW M3 sedan, F82 BMW M4 coupe and F83 M4 convertible forum. This 5th generation M3 and all new M4 features a 3.0 liter twin turbo engine (engine code S55) 425hp and 406lbs of torque! Heavy use of light weight materials makes this generation lighter and faster then the outgoing E9x M3.

M4 competition vs non-competition

I am interested in getting a BMW certified M4. It's listed at 55K and has 7K miles on it. It does not have a competition package. There is another one that has competition package and is listed at 58K with 16K miles.

Currently I have a 2017 530ix so M4 will be my first performance car. Do you guys suggest going for a competition package with 16K miles or low mileage option without competition package.

Test drive both. You would be hard pressed to be able to tell the difference between the two in terms of performance on the street. When I went to test drive one looking for an upgrade for my '16 F80 the 20 in wheels were just too harsh of a ride. The small increase in performance didn't justify that upgrade and I ended up just doing a BM3 flash tune anyway. The exhaust sounded a little bit nicer though.

On the other hand, the competition should retain its value a little better and if the price is equal, why wouldn't you get it? The extra mileage doesn't really much when, especially if you are going to drive it.

In addition to JoroM3's response, it also depends on how optioned the cars are. The executive option, for example may make a difference.

The difference in mileage is virtually immaterial. Unless you will be putting this in storage for 10,20 years to create a collectors item in the future.

Alignment here: The Definitive Alignment Thread

OE is Original Equipment aka 'BMW Original Parts' aka 'What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label'

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER the company that made the OE part or.... A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label

OEM is not what BMW sells

Seats alone would seal the deal for me along with the sports exhaust,+1 ZCP.
