I had an x3m for about 6 months at the end of 2020. I had it from new and it was one of the early my21 cars so had the newer dash, Idrive and HUD system.any owners on here of X3 M40i or X3M competition. what are the benefits of the X3M competition over the M40i in addition to the extra cost is it worth it ?
There's definitely a market there somewhere, the C63 estate and RS4 Avant have existed for ages it's only BMW late to the party. The Audi is only about 70k though...
I also suspect that if it doesn't sell well, and I suspect it won't at that price, they'll never do another.And that’s the issue. The other cars already exist at a lower price, at the moment.
Don’t get me wrong, I know it’ll be a special car, but I think the timing is wrong on this.
An F81 M3 touring at £60k new would have been appealing. This is another 20k on top.
Just not sure. It’s the worst looking M3 they could have done it to as well
Ultimate pack is £12k I think which is where the £100k comes in.The price is in line with everything else really. These cars are just not cheap, like most things.
An M3 Competition Saloon starts at £78,175.An M4 Competition Coupe starts at £79,475.An M4 Competition Convertible starts at £85,870.The M3 Competition Touring starts at £83,470.
So yes, it's quite a bit of a premium, but we're in the £80-90k range regardless of M car model (with a couple of options).
I don't know whether the Touring comes with any extra spec either as standard, that is sometimes the case.

It's still a 3 Series, no matter how much more pointlessly fast you make it.
I see no value in this over an M340i at an extra £30k. What does it do that makes it worth it?
Why is 400bhp not sufficient in a 3 Series estate?
I mean… hot cakes is a very vague measure so you could probably claim you were right whatever happens.
At the prices they are asking though, £90k after you’ve added a couple of options, I doubt it’s going to be a big seller.
I was looking at m340i numbers on howmanyleft and there’s only 3.6k between the saloon and the estate so getting to 2k of sales would be an achievement I reckon. Does that count as hot cakes?
They must have changed it as I can still search via Postcode on my 2015 4 series?My satnav stopped finding any post codes recently and I assumed something had broke and googled it. I was wrong, it actually sounds like the 'connected drive ' has expired which being able to search a postcode is part of! How on earth do BMW get away with charging you a subscription just to search for a postcode?! Ridiculous.

4 series gran coupe. Yes I suspect I'll just suck it up and renew, I just find it silly that they would have standard features locked behind a subscription, even if it isn't an expensive one!What car is it? Postcode lookup isn't part of connected drive on mine.
Saying that I don't know why you wouldn't renew it as it isn't very expensive and is reasonably useful.
