BMW M3 and M4 pricing announced

Confirmed US MSRP base prices for the 2015 BMW M3 and 2014 BMW M4 -

  • 2015 F80 M3: $62,000
  • 2015 F82 M4: $64,200
  • Destination and handling $925 (currently - subject to change)
Manual transmission is standard with DCT being an add-on option. This represents a serious jump in pricing over the out going E90 and E92 M3 factoring in inflation, high tech construction with carbon fiber and additional base equipment it is not out of line and cheaper then some expected. Package and option will be similar to F30/F32 pricing, for more ordering information take a peak at the M3/M4 dealer demo ordering sheets.

About the F80 M3 and F82 M4
The all-new BMW M3 Sedan and first-ever BMW M4 Coupe are examples of the legendary BMW M engineering which emphasizes a synthesis of motorsport technology with unrestricted daily driving versatility. World-class engine and powertrain technologies, along with intelligent lightweight vehicle construction through extensive use of exotic construction materials, add to the intensity of the M feeling and driving experience. The extensive weight-reduction efforts of the BMW M engineers should not be under looked. The new BMW M3 and BMW M4 are the first BMW M cars to see a reduction in curb weight from one generation to the next. Both models are equipped with an all-new 3.0-liter inline-6 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology and increased performance levels that distinguish them from previous generations of the M3 family, delivering 425 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. Both the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds when equipped with the optional M-DCT transmission. By setting new segment standards in terms of dynamics, agility, precise handling and emotional design, the new BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe have set the benchmark for the high-performance segment created by the M3 many years ago.

No way. That's MUCH cheaper than I thought.


Actually, I'll reserve my opinion for when they release the options list. I have a feeling nothing is going to be standard...

Base M3 Sedan in 2011 was $55,900. So about a 10% increase at the base.

Yeah. It's hard to believe that the new M5 has digital engine sounds piped into the cabin through the speakers. That's the height of lame. So to get a real roar, have to go to another manufacturer. Sad.

Or aftermarket exhaust. They are so popular that M performance now offers the Akrapovic exhaust installed at the dealer with full warranty. It sounds awesome and I may get it on the m5 if I go that route.

No. Only some models. I am not sure which models have the option besides the m5. I got an invite to test out a m performance m5 last weekend at my local dealer so that is how I found out what m performance stuff is now available for that car. My dealer knows I am a M junkie so I get random invites for testing demo cars and track days, ect. FWIW I loved the Akra exhaust....quieter at highway speeds than my m3 and nice growl around town. Not as special as the E92 M3, but very good and much more tolerable on a long highway drive versus the M3.

Have you driven it for more than a test drive lol? Your commenting on something you really don't know about there isn't some blaring fake sound pumping through the cabin. If you put a custom exhaust on automatically cancels whatever they're pumping through the cabin, and if you blast music you'll never hear it anyway.

Its a non issue and thats from someone who owns the car, not just from internet reading.
