2012 BMW M3 Features

9.0
Features
For 2012, the BMW M3 sees a slight shuffle in its options packages, as well as minor upgrades to standard equipment, but otherwise is unchanged from the 2011 model.

New standard equipment includes Bluetooth, BMW Assist, iPod/USB adapter, floor mats, and an anti-theft alarm system. Package changes see the previous Convenience Package and Premium Package 2 combined into a new Premium Package, which bundles all of the M3's most popular options into one package. A power rear sunshade is included in the Premium package, new to the M3 this year.

A new Individual Composition Package is also introduced this year, offering a choice of three unique metallic exterior colors (Ruby Black, Azurite Black, and Moonstone), three unique leather colors with extended leather surfaces (Champagne, Platinum, and Rust Brown), plus Individual piano black interior trim.

High-tech features abound in the 2012 BMW M3, but beware the pricey packages, which can quickly add $5,000 or more to the price tag.

All M3s also come standard with an AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo system. Optional extras include upgraded wheels, heated front seats, and a sunroof, though the sunroof deletes the carbon fiber roof from the Coupe.

The Convertible's folding hard top is power-operated and can open or close in about 25 seconds.
