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.
