BMW Australia is now taking orders for M3 and M4 LCI (life-cycle impulse) models and has taken the knife to pricing, while adding additional standard features as well.
When originally launched down under list pricing for the F80 M3 was $156,900 and the F82 M4 was priced from $166,900. Those prices have now been reduced to $139,900 and $149,900 respectively. Meanwhile, the M4 convertible has also been discounted to $161,900.
Additional standard equipment includes items such as head-up display, adaptive LED headlights, internet connectivity, tyre pressure monitor, full leather merino upholstery and more.
Shawn Ticehurst, BMW Group Australia Head of Product and Market Planning, is very happy with this news.
“More value, more technology and more refinement. That is what we are delivering with this update to the BMW M3 and BMW M4,” Ticehurst said.
“The growth of the BMW M range has been a fantastic success story for our brand, particularly in 2015. And over the first seven months of this year, we have already surpassed our total sales result for 2014.”
We wonder how happy those buyers will be who paid an extra 15-large for lesser equipped M3s and M4s?
Funnily enough, the M3 and M4 are now priced just below the Mercedes-Benz AMG C63 range.
The facelifted models will be on sale locally from October. There’s more detail below.
