BMW reworks the whole M range...
2009 M3 Saloon
It only seems like yesterday that the BMW M3 saloon arrived on this planet but the company has already seen fit to revise it. For 2009 the M3 gets new rear lights, a new bootlip spoiler and a modified bumper - so nothing too extreme then. The alterations come just a year after the M3 came to market and the coupe and saloon also get BMW’s seven-speed dual clutch gearbox - which was first introduced for the M3 Cabrio.
Meanwhile the M6 is getting a 'Competition Pack' to sharpen up its handling. The option makes the car 10mm lower at the front and 12mm at the rear and should make it flatter through the twisties. The Competition Pack also adds adaptive suspension control, new alloys and it will be available later this year.
A new iDrive system will also be fitted to the M6 and M5 as standard from 2009 as well as a part-time alternator which should help fuel economy.
