BMW M3 Competition Open for Booking in Malaysia
It seems that the G80 BMW M3, which was officially shown less than three months ago, is making its way to our shores sooner than expected as BMW Malaysia has opened up bookings for the performance sedan. It will be offered solely in Competition guise, with the Innovation Package available as an option.
Pricing for the all-new M3 Competition starts from RM664,800 and ticking the Innovation Package box will cost customers an additional RM75,000. However, the package is offered at a discounted price of RM58,000 until 31 December 2020. Those interested will need to pay RM5,000 to place a booking.
The M3 Competition is powered by a 3.0-litre biturbo inline-six engine that makes 510 hp and 650 Nm of torque, which represents an increase of 30 hp and 100 Nm over the standard version. Power is sent to the rear wheels via an 8-speed M Steptronic transmission, enabling the sedan to go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. The M xDrive all-wheel-drive system will only be available starting next year.
The Innovation Package carries additional items as shown in the following table:

BMW Malaysia today introduced its newest campaign for the high performance BMWM portfolio, commencing with online pre-booking for the All-New BMW M3 Competition and the All-New BMW M4 Competition Coupé – two highly-anticipated, iconic performance vehicles from the premium automaker.
Harald Hoelzl, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “The fascination with M, as seen with the recently introduced M vehicles is a testament to the passion that owners of the BMW brand have for thrilling sportiness. With the upcoming All-New BMW M3 Competition and the All-New BMW M4 Competition Coupé, we aim to continue driving this passion with our fans of the BMW M portfolio here, emulating our motorsports capabilities from the track and combining it with our philosophy of uncompromised everyday practicality and comfort.”
This year, BMW Malaysia has driven a successful product offensive for the BMW M portfolio – despite a challenging period for the automotive industry in 2020. With six new M Performance models introduced in the last 10 months, BMW Malaysia also celebrated Malaysia Day with BMW M Owners at the ///Malaysia Day Drive. There was no greater sense of national pride than seeing the BMW M4 lead car – clad in Chan Wen Bin’s BMW M4 GT4 winning livery design, at the forefront of a fleet of BMW M high-performing vehicles.
The infamous BMW M Secret Garage in Munich, Germany was also brought to life in Malaysia for the very first time at the M Town event in Malaysia this year, which introduced the First-Ever BMW M8 Coupé and the First-Ever BMW M8 Gran Coupé, along with the All-New BMW X3 M Competition and BMW X4 M Competition for the local market.
