7. 2017 BMW M3 Competition Package – The German Swiss Army Knife
M3. One letter, one number, one legend. The BMW M3 is well-known for its versatility, you can pick up the kids, drive to the market, and smoke some supercars on your way home.
This year, BMW wants to give the mid-size flagship car a subtile update. This model gets a 20 horsepower increase from the biturbo 3.0L straight 6 engine, which results in a great 450hp. The dual clutch transmission (DKG) is also improved, allowing the car to go to 62mph in only 3.8 seconds, or 3.9 with the regular 6-speed manual.
The car also gets new rims, a new anti-roll bar, and all driving modes have been reconfigured. Unfortunately, the package doesn’t remove the speed limiter, so the car won’t go over 155mph. This Competition Package definitely fixed the original car’s lack of soul.
