Introduction

The problem borne by the BMW M3 is that it has to live up to its reputation, and given today’s requirements for new cars, it doesn’t have the visceral feeling that fostered a generation of fans. But it doesn’t abandon its roots; the 2017 BMW M3 is a version of the car that 30 years ago did burnouts in young men’s hearts and on their bedroom walls. (The lighter and nimbler BMW M2 might be seen as the spiritual successor to the original M3.)

The 2017 BMW M3 is in the third year of the current generation.

The 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine is turbocharged, and it revs to 7600 rpm. It may be less visceral because the engine doesn’t scream like it used to (the exhaust note is piped in), and the car is heavier, but you can’t fault the performance.

The 2017 M3 offers a Competition package that brings 444 horsepower and a tad quicker acceleration, as if the standard 425 horsepower and zero-to-sixty time of 3.9 seconds weren’t enough. There’s heaps of torque, something the old beloved M3 didn’t have; 408 pound-feet drops your jaw early, at 1800 rpm, and continues up to 5500 rpm. The sound splayed out of the quad-tipped exhaust is menacing and unnerving; combined with the piped-in notes, the classic melody seems unfortunately muddled.

Also new, the Active M suspension is now standard on 2017 M3 models (last year it was a $1000 option, as the sticker price of the 2017 M3 goes up by $1500). The electronic system includes Comfort, Sport, and Sport+ modes that vary the stiffness of the dampers in instantaneous time. The modes also alter the steering resistance.

Standard transmission is a 6-speed manual, but we like the 7-speed DCT, a twin-clutch automatic manual with seamless shifts and programmable patterns that work for daily driving. It’s the DCT that scores the fastest 0-60 time. It gets one less mile per gallon than the 6-speed manual, at 17/24 mpg City/Highway, 19 mpg Combined.

Although the M3 hasn’t been crash-tested by the government or insurance association, the BMW 3 Series with the same structure has been. Its scores were okay, although just Marginal on the IIHS small overlap test on which so few cars score Good.

Lineup

The 2017 BMW M3 ($65,990 including destination) comes with the 6-speed manual transmission. Standard equipment includes 18-inch wheels, 10-way power adjustable cloth front seats, sports exhaust, keyless ignition, adaptive cruise control, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, navigation, BMW iDrive infotainment, and 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound.

That’s in plain refrigerator white. If you want your M3 in any other color, it will cost you, from $550 to $1950 depending on the color. The Yas Marina Blue is stunning. We didn’t ask the cost but we bet it’s the ticket item. That’s also with cloth bucket seats. Leather can add another $3000. Depending on the color.

The 7-speed DCT automated dual-clutch transmission is a stand-alone option ($2900).

The Competition Package ($5500) that brings 19 more horsepower also adds suspension tweaks, 20-inch wheels, lightweight seats, and a black grille and badges.

Walkaround

At 3540 pounds the M3 is relatively svelte. The hood and fenders are aluminum, while the roof and trunk lid are carbon fiber. These lightweight pieces improve balance and handling, by lowering the center of gravity.

The Gurney lip on the rear spoiler makes us smile.

Interior

Inside are flashes of chrome and ambient lighting around the center stack. A rearview camera isn’t standard, available only for $3500 with an Executive Package that also includes a head-up display, heated steering wheel, and parking assistant.

There’s also a $1700 Driver Assistance Plus package that adds blind-spot monitors, surround-view cameras, and active driving assistant.

Driving Impressions

The M3 handles well but isn’t as nimble as the lighter M2.

The front suspension is a double-joint sprung axle with aluminum control arms, wheel carriers, and axle subframe. When the M3 was redesigned for 2015, those aluminum pieces shaved 11 pounds off the front suspension. It means a lot to handling. The five-link rear suspension uses forged aluminum control arms that shaved 6.6 pounds of unsprung mass. The driveshaft is carbon fiber, to save weight and reduce loss of horsepower between the engine and the wheels.

In the wind tunnel, advanced aerodynamic work focused on cooling and lift, not just aero drag. That rear spoiler with a Gurney lip reduces the lift, so if you’re on the Autobahn at 250 kilometers per hour, the car won’t fly. As for cooling, that’s what the gills in the body are for. And the sculpted side mirrors reduce drag.

The three tweaks work together to symbiotically and successfully manage airflow. Another way of putting it is to say that the M3 runs to the horizon with glee.

The electronic Active M Differential system is all about grip, namely the grip of the tire at each corner, measured and responded to within milliseconds. It helps the car rotate in the turns and accelerate positively. The competent chassis stays neutral no matter how wild the input of the driver in the turns.

The 7-speed DCT has a launch program that provides quick getaways, no burnouts. Efficient but not as much fun.

At the stopping end, the available carbon-ceramic brakes lower the car’s speed with alarming enthusiasm. They are available for $8150, if your enthusiasm can stand that much alarm.

Summary

In so many ways the latest M3 is better than the visceral car that made M3 famous. Dazzling 3.0-liter inline-6 with turbocharging gives 425 horsepower and 7500 thrilling revs. The 7-speed DCT shifts sharply and optimizes the powerband. Active suspension standard. Aerodynamically fine-tuned. The sound needs further tuning, could be a dealbreaker for some. There’s a lot of competition in the $70,000-range, quite a few other great performance sedans.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
