BMW gives USA special edition M3 - We tell them to take it back
BMW unveiled the special edition Frozen Grey M3 today and it was met with collective expressions of "Meh." BMW is only producing 30 units which is 30 units too many in our estimation.
So what does the USA get instead of a CSL and GTS? Well, we get a special matte grey paint job, oooohhhh. Oh, and a unique interior, more form over function to convince ill informed potential buyers that they are getting something special.
Well, what about that motor? The Europeans got a sweet 4.4 liter motor for their special edition M3. What do we get? Well, nothing, same old, same old. It also comes with the same old DCT that was always available. It also comes bundled with the premium package that was already available. It also comes bundled with the competition package that was already available. Uh, what is so special about this thing again?
Oh, you get some special wheels and lowering springs all for $77,620. They even throw in a generous day of BMW performance driving school while laughing all the way to the bank.
This is our special edition BMW? Seriously? This is how you make up for the GTS? This is how you make up for the CSL? I would write the number to dial to reserve this over-hyped, underhelming and overpriced special nonsense but I value our members too much. Don't waste our time with this crap again, come back with a USA only special edition when you are serious.
