The BMW M3 is getting its second facelift in two years. The changes to the F30 are minor at best and are an attempt to bring the car in line with recently announced changes to the M4.
Basically the M3 now has the M4’s new headlights, which constitute the largest visual change on the car. The new headlights feature a new LED light signature that brings the lighting element all the way to the kidney-shaped grille. Some other minor visual changes have occurred on the car as well.
Just as the case with the M4 updates, there are no performance updates on the car. That means the M3 remains powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six with 425 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. BMW’s optional Competition Package boosts the engine’s output to 444 horsepower.
BMW Blog reports that the modified M3 will go into production in March of this year and launch in the U.S. later this year.
