The BMW M3 first appeared on the car scene in 1986, and it’s been a firm favourite ever since. Combining the sultry styling of a saloon with a real performance edge, the M3 is a real treat of a car.
You can choose from a range of trims and engines, and there are convertible models for some wind-in-hair action.
One of the most popular engine offerings is a straight-six petrol engine that’s coveted on the car scene and often labelled as one of BMW’s best. The only transmission currently available on Competition and CS models is an eight-speed automatic.
Being a luxury car with a reputation to uphold, all models offer an impressive amount of kit. Features like three-zone climate control, parking sensors and sports seats are abundant across the range, plus M seatbelts are a flashy touch.
You won’t be able to miss the massive 12.3-inch infotainment display, and it wouldn’t be a BMW without plush interior styling.

The M3 is a car that focuses on performance and is capable of 510hp with the 3.0-litre twin-turbo straight-six engine. Achieving this level of on-the-road finesse does require using more fuel, of course.
The rear-wheel-drive M3 can achieve up to 28.8mpg, while the all-wheel-drive xDrive model can hit slightly less than that.
Because of the cost to purchase the M3 and the power it’s capable of, insurance costs are likely to be on the pricier side. This is to be expected if you’re in the market for a performance car.
The BMW M3 is most suited to motorists that want a lifestyle car that offers a feisty performance edge. This is a car that’s built for speed, but it isn’t too extravagant for daily use.
