We knew the 2015 BMW M3 sedan and 2015 BMW M4 coupe would pack a serious performance punch, and now we know just how much M fans will pay to enjoy the 425-hp, 3.0-liter turbocharged twins.
The 2015 BMW M3 starts at $62,925, after a $925 destination charge, while the two-door M4 is just a smidge costlier at $65,125. A six-speed manual transmission comes standard, but upgrading to the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission costs $2900. Non-metallic White Alpine paint also comes standard, and buyers who want one of the seven available metallic colors will need to pony up $550. Other standard equipment includes 18-inch wheels, powered and heated front seats, carbon fiber interior trim, automatic on/off Xenon headlights, adaptive cruise control, navigation, and Bluetooth.
Because the 2015 BMW M3 and M4 come well-equipped to begin with, there aren't too many packages on the options list. M Carbon Ceramic brakes cost $8150 -- but most be ordered with either the $1000 Adaptive M suspension, the optional $1200 19-inch wheels, or both. The $1900 Lighting package brings full-LED headlights with automatic high beams; and the $4300 Executive package bundles a heated steering wheel, push-button start, a backup camera, parking sensors, a head-up display, and satellite radio.
Drivers who select the Executive package can then add the Driver Assistance Plus pack, a $1900 option that includes a blind-spot warning system, BMW's Top View 360-degree camera, and a speed limit information readout. The Full Merino Leather option, which adds high-quality leather upholstery, costs $3600 on its own or $2650 with the Executive package for the M3; M4 buyers will pay $3500 individually or $2550 if they also specify the Executive package.
The 2015 BMW M3 and M4 coupe go on sale this summer. The BMW M4 convertible has not yet been official revealed but is expected to follow at a later date.
