Expert Quotes:

A competition package option is also new for 2011 and offers a lowered suspension, better aerodynamics, and special wheel designs.

The convertible's heat-reflective leather does a wonderful job of keeping the seats from absorbing too much heat from the sun with the top down.

Those who plugged iPods into the M3 were satisfied with the interface between tunes and car.
Car and Driver

If you want the ultimate factory warrantied M3, be sure to cough up the $2900 for the DCT, too.
Motor Trend

What's cool is that you can configure M-Drive with all the settings you want for the racetrack and go nuts zooming around.

As you'd expect with a car priced in the M3's range, all trims feature luxury elements, including 18-inch or larger alloy wheels, xenon headlamps, power windows/locks/mirrors, cruise control, automatic climate control, heated power-adjustable seats, and leather upholstery.

All M3s also feature an AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo system with auxiliary input. For the convertible, the multi-panel folding hard top opens and closes in about 25 seconds, and definitely counts as a cool bit of mechanized wizardry.

Optional upgrades include the Technology Package that adds the M Drive system and other driver-controllable handling and performance elements. A la carte options include Bluetooth, navigation with real-time traffic, satellite and HD radio, 19-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, a sunroof (at no cost on the sedan), and iPod connectivity.


The 2011 BMW M3 can suffer from techno overload-but conversely, it could use a couple more added-value standard features.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
