BMW M3 Limited Edition 500 for UK - Web Exclusive

The cars are mechanically stock but feature dark chrome exterior trim, black wheels and interior trim updates to distinguish them for a regular M3.

Similar to the limited edition M3s built by BMW North America for its customers, the British importer is releasing a new Limited Edition M3 Coupé and Convertible this month.

Limited to just 500 models, they will be available in Imola Red, Mineral White or Santorini Blue. Each car will feature an edition designation laser cut into an inlay on the dashboard.

Mechanically, the Limited Edition 500 is unchanged, using the regular V8 engine and either a six-speed manual or seven-speed M DCT transmission. However, the cars do get a dark chrome finish on the kidney grille surround, side gills and exhaust tailpipes. In addition, they get gloss Shadowline exterior trim and 19” black wheels.

Each car will be trimmed in BMW’s extended Novillo leather and features contrast stitching that complements the exterior color. So Imola Red cars feature Black leather with Mugello Red stitching, Mineral White cars feature Fox Red leather with Black Stitching, and Santorini Blue feature Black leather with Tobago Blue stitching.

The cockpit will have Piano Black interior trim, with the edition designation laser cut into the left-hand side of the inlay on the dashboard.

Customers of the BMW M3 Limited Edition 500 will also benefit from a deal that sees more than $6400-worth of additional equipment included for only $1600 over the price of a regular M3 Coupé or Convertible.

As special editions go, this is rather luke warm, offering nothing more than some trim and color options. They certainly don’t compare to the US edition M3s that were better equipped but offered in even smaller numbers.
