Since the M3 has always shared its fascia with the M4 (apart from the bumper), it now receives the same headlight treatment the latter just underwent. So, this means the M3 gets the headlamps with the characteristic LED signature line that starts from the grille and around each of the main beam lights. The tail lamps remain the same, though.
On the inside, the new M3 shows off some chrome trim around the cabin, and it now gets ambient lighting. Sources also suggest that the front seats may receive a revised illuminated M logo, and an updated iDrive5 infotainment software will find its way into the refreshed car.
Though information regarding changes to the powertrain is yet to be revealed, reports state that the current M3’s power output, which ranges between 431bhp and 450bhp (Regular vs Competition variant), could be tweaked for the new car. Expect BMW to debut the updated BMW M3 at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March, so stay tuned.
