2012 BMW M3 Styling

Styling
For 2012, the BMW M3 Coupe and Convertible move forward with no major styling changes, though a handful of new exterior and interior colors, and BMW's Individual Composition Package, are added for the first time.

From front the back, the M3 speaks of sporting ability. Low-slung, sleekly contoured, with just enough aggression at the front end, both Coupe and Convertible are at once instantly recognizable and familiarly BMW. Details like flared fender arches, the slightly domed hood, a carbon fiber roof, and low aerodynamics combine to remove the M3 from the realm of workaday 3-Series coupes or convertibles.

The Convertible's folding hard top makes it look almost like the coupe with the roof up, and tucks away inconspicuously when lowered.

The 2012 BMW M3 exudes sportiness from every duct, scoop, and curve.

The interior is simple, but well-executed. Well-bolstered sport seats, a comfortable, stylish steering wheel, and a bold, horizontally-oriented dash make for a purposeful, functional cockpit. Here, you'll find more shared elements with the standard 3-Series, and the shapes and materials may come off as somewhat cold to some observers.
