    BMW M3 - 2011 Changes

    The M3 as of September production will bring a number of important changes.

    New standard features:

    M Drive: The M Button on the steering wheel can be programmed to set the drivers preferences for Stability Control, Steering mode, Shift light, EDC, and if the car has the M DCT the Drive logic mode can also be set.

    Automatic/Start Stop: A feature developed from BMW’s EfficientDynamics strategy that will shut down the engine under certain conditions when the vehicle comes to a complete stop. The benefit of this technology is reduced fuel consumption and the function can be switched on/off via a button located next to the Start/Stop button.

    Manual M Sport Seats: On the M3 Coupe and M3 Sedan the manual M Sport Seats offer the same adjustments as the previous seats but operated manually which saves weight and expense for customers who do not require power seats. Lumber support and seatback side bolters remain electrically adjustable. Power Seats remain standard in the M3 Convertible.

    New Mineral White Metallic paint is available on the M3 Coupe and Convertible.

    New optional Bi-color Novillo Leather (non-extended) is available in black with red seating surfaces and soft door panel sections, or black with gray seating surfaces and soft door panel sections.

    A new Premium Package 2 (ZP2) package is available, which has the same equipment as the prior Premium Package, but adds Power Front Seats for the M3 Coupe and Sedan.

    An all-new Convenience Package (ZCV) is available that replaces the Technology Package. This includes:

    Anti-theft Alarm Comfort Access Park Distance Control (rear) Navigation system including Voice Command and Real Time Traffic iPod and USB adaptor

    Re: BMW M3 - 2011 Changes

    Christian,

    This info is for US spec cars. Have you checked it if this changes are also valid for Euro Spec cars?

    As you know, we don't have Premium Pack - Convenience Pack - Comfort Access Pack for Euro Spec cars.

    Furthermore, since the facelift model comes out, M3s come with Start&Stop function.

    Only thing I'm missing is the Brilliant White color. It is like Ferrari/Maserati Bianco Fuji color which is my favorite color, by far.

    My only consolation about not having this color is the repaint difficulty of this pearl white. I saw a new 7series, last year, in this pearl white at the BMW service and I was told that the service paint shop had difficulty to match this color on a damage body part with the rest of the car.

    BTW, I had an e-mail from my BMW dealer yesterday and I was informed that "My M3 is factory completed." I hold my breath.

    Re: BMW M3 - 2011 Changes

    Sorry, I forgot to add that this is for the US market.

    However...the M Drive, the manual M sport seats, the automatic start-stop function and the new paint, also the new optional bi-color leather information is valid for Euro specs cars too.

    Sounds great with your car...are you going to pick it up in Germany or do you get it delivered ? Can't remember, sorry.

    I'll deliver the car in Turkey. Picking it up in Germany and driving from there to here is too much hassle at the custom in Turkey SmileySmiley

    Re: BMW M3 - 2011 Changes

    After searching internet for the pictures of new M3 color, mineral white, I found out that I mixed up between mineral white and brilliant white.

    It is brilliant white that I refer to Bianco fuji. Mineral white is more like Alpine white. It is the brilliant which is pearl white.

    So nothing is missed here
