G80 BMW M3 Competition, G82 BMW M4 Competition launched in Malaysia, priced fr. RM665k to RM761k

Teased yesterday on BMW Malaysia’s official Facebook page, BMW Malaysia has officially introduced the new G80 M3 and G82 M4 in the country, both vehicles arriving in Competition form.

Buyers will however have options for both models, priced accordingly. The base M3 Competition goes for RM664,800, while the inclusion of an Innovation Package adds RM75,000 to bump the price up to RM739,800. However, BMW Malaysia is offering an online pre-booking discounted price of RM58,000 for the Innovations Package from Dec 1 to 31, effectively reducing the IP variant to RM722,800 until the end of the year.

As for the M4 Competition, the base model goes on sale at RM684,800, and opting for the Innovation Package – which is priced at RM76,000 – brings the price up to RM760,800. As with the M3, the Innovations Package is discounted to RM56,000 until December 31, which means the M4 Competition with the IP will go for RM740,800 until the end of the year.

In their standard guise, both Competition iterations of the new M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe will arrive at a cheaper price point than their predecessors, the F80 M3 and F82 M4, which went for RM738,800 and RM748,800 respectively when they debuted in June 2014, and even loaded with the Innovation Package, the pre-booking price is still marginally cheaper.

The Innovation Package introduces additional kit, and items in the pack include a BMW Laserlight system, head-up display, Connected Package, Parking Assistant and a Driving Assistant package, which has driver assistance kit such as lane departure warning, lane change warning, front collision warning with braking intervention (AEB), rear cross traffic warning and rear collision prevention.

The M3 and M4 are powered by an S58 3.0 litre twin-turbo straight-six, which in its base form puts out 480 PS (473 hp) at 6,250 rpm and 550 Nm of torque from 2,650 to 6,130 rpm, an increase of nearly 50 PS and 50 Nm over the previous gen models.

The Competition specification bumps the output tune of the S58 to 510 PS (503 hp) at 6,250 rpm and 650 Nm between 2,750 and 5,500 rpm, which is 60 PS and 100 Nm more than the previous gen Competition models.

The mill is paired with an eight-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission with Drivelogic, driving the rear wheels. No all-wheel drive as yet, because the automaker will only be introducing its M xDrive AWD system on the Competition models only from the middle of next year.
