2023 M3 Sedan Exterior

There have been countless arguments about the styling of the M3's front end, and we do find it frustrating that the M3 looks like a 4 Series, but those vertical kidney grilles are said to improve airflow and cooling. On the extremities of the front fascia are intake vents that cool the brakes and enhance downforce. LED headlights are standard and can be had with Laserlight tech or in Shadowline spec with darkened shrouds. M-specific mirror caps and a carbon fiber roof add aggression to the car, while a textured hood aims for the same effect. At the rear, a prominent diffuser houses four exhaust tips while the trunk features a subtle lip spoiler. 824M-style 18-inch wheels are fitted up front while 19s are at the back. Optionally available on the manual are the same 826M 19-/20-inch staggered alloys that are already standard on the Competition models. On the Comp models, the exhaust tips, mirror caps, trunk spoiler, and Competition badges are all finished in high gloss black. Carbon exterior accents are optional, as is a power sunroof, but you lose the carbon roof with this glass panel.

Cars are swelling, and the new BMW M3 is not immune.

Exterior Colors

Whether you get the Competition model or the regular version, just two colors are available at no charge: the polarizing Sao Paulo Yellow and BMW's traditional Alpine White. Also available are metallic finishes that set you back an additional $650: Black Sapphire, a favorite among those who've seen it in the sun, Portimao Blue, Toronto Red, the stunning Isle of Man Green, Brooklyn Grey, and Skyscraper Grey. Last year's Oxide Grey has been discontinued. Spend $1,950 and you can have Tanzanite Blue II, Dravit Grey, or Aventurin Red. Matte finishes cost even more - Frozen Brilliant White and Frozen Portimao Blue cost $3,600 each, as does the new-for-2023 Frozen Pure Grey II.
