Motor Trend takes the M3 w/Competition Pkg for a spin
Is This the Best Handling Production M Car Ever Built?
Walk up to an M3 Comp and it's hard to miss the package-specific 19-inch alloys. They're wider by a half-inch and pushed to the outermost extremities of the inner fender wells for a stance best suited for the circuit. Their bright silver finish beautifully complements our tester's Melbourne Red Metallic paintjob, while the multi-spoke form matches naturally with the M's muscular physique. A 0.4-inch lower ride height finishes the exterior additions, making it clear that this particular roundel-bearer is of a different, meaner variety.
A 414-horsepower 4.0-liter V-8 sits comfortably in the engine bay as it does in garden-variety M3s. Peak horsepower arrives at its usual 8300 rpm mark, as do all 295 pound-foot of torque at 3900 rpm. A close-ratio six-speed manual or seven-speed M dual-clutch transmission (DCT) with 11-mode Drivelogic programming handles distribution to the rear wheels.

+1 wish there was more, but still like it for what it is...
I would def get it with the rear spoiler and front splitters tho, seems to finish it off nicely, and they dont even offer it with the package!!
Dont know why they half ass'd it!!!! At least a ALCT steering wheel!
