Why Is the BMW M3 So Loved By Many?

At Central Import Automotive, we specialize in European Imports, including Audis, Mercedes Benzs, Porsches, Land Rovers, and BMWs. One of the most popular cars we service is the BMW M3. And it made us wonder, "What makes the BMW M3 So Special" and "Why is this car loved by so many." We did a deep dive and put a little knowledge to break down several reasons why the BMW M3 is a superior sedan.


Wide Range of Colors

BMW's M series has a history of a wide range of unique color selections. M-series specific paint colors have always been popular among BMW lovers. More M buyers choose the M-specific choices over the traditional BMW color range. Thankfully, the preferences are still present for the 2022 model in the 14 whopping color options available on the BMW website.

Sporty, Luxurious, and Smart at the Same Time

The M3 has a sharp, dynamic, and exciting exterior design for a sedan. However, its interior screams "luxury"! The seats are very comfortable, and the car itself incorporates superior modern technology that anyone can easily use every day. The materials on the inside are excellent, and the build quality is magnificent.


According to the BMW site, the new 2022 M3 Sedan has a 0-60 mph time of just 4.1 seconds. The M3 Competition boasts a mere 3.8 seconds, and the M3 Competition xDrive has a 3.4 seconds 0-60 mph time. With a 0-60 mph time of under 4 seconds, the BMW M3 can outrun many other vehicles in its segment and a lot of its competitor's cars. The car also has a horsepower of up to 503hp.


While the BMW M3 certainly isn't cheap, it's still worth the money. The 2022 starts at an MSRP of $69,900. However, you can always look at the used market. The BMW M3 is the vehicle that you can take the kids to school with and take on a night out. The Competition upgrade package increases the price up to the $70k range, but it can be worth the extra. It adds unique wheels, more power, higher-quality seats, and a better exhaust.
