2021 BMW M3, M4 Already Have BMW Individual Color Options
Like it or not, BMW’s new G80 M3 and G82 M4 are here. There’s no question that the exterior styling with the large double grille is controversial, but that doesn’t mean the automaker is straying from its usual lineup of custom touches via BMW Individual. In fact, special colors and interior trim are already available.
On the exterior, BMWBlog reports a range of Frozen matte shades and metallic exterior options. They include Frozen Dark Gray Metallic, Frozen Black Metallic, Frozen Orange Metallic, Frozen Portimao Blue Metallic, and Frozen White Metallic. The latter two can be seen below, with the M4 wearing Frozen Portimao Blue Metallic and the M3 wearing Frozen White Metallic. Shiny metallic shades include Tanzanite Blue II, Dravit Gray, and Oxide Gray.
Inside, BMW Individual offers a range of merino leather options that include Ivory White, Fiona Red with black trim, Fjord Blue with black trim and Tartufo. More individual features are expected to be available later, but BMW is clearly interested in offering plenty of customization options right out of the box. It goes beyond the aesthetics to include a plethora of M Performance parts including a cool center exhaust system and suspension / brake upgrades.
It’s not like the new M cars need any help in the performance class. In competition form, the M3 and M4 deliver 503 horsepower (375 kilowatts) from a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six, connected exclusively to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Don’t fear textbook enthusiasts, as you can always opt for a six-speed stick in the standard versions. The power output of the I6 drops to 473 hp (353 kW), but it’s still enough for the coupe and sedan to hit 60 mph in just over four seconds.
The new M3 starts at $ 69,900. Losing two doors for the M4 will cost a bit more, with the base model listed for $ 71,800. Neither price includes a destination charge of $ 995.
