Auckland, New Zealand: The highly-anticipated, all-new BMW M3 Competition Sedan and BMW M4 Competition Coupé have landed in New Zealand in spectacular style.


The Isle of Man Green M3 Competition Sedan and Sao Paulo Yellow M4 Competition Coupé emerged from matching decorated containers carried in via Black Hawk helicopters, and showcased their dynamic abilities on closed runways at the North Shore Aerodrome to a small group of invited guests.


Following a short presentation from BMW New Zealand, professional drivers then took guests on taxi rides on the closed course, specifically designed to showcase the dynamic abilities of the two high performance machines.


Available exclusively in New Zealand as top-spec Competition variants, both vehicles are powered by a six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology.  Imbued with motorsport-derived DNA, both cars feature impressive performance, accelerating from 0 – 100km/h in 3.9 seconds and from 0-200kms/h in 12.5 seconds.


The new BMW M3 Competition Sedan and new BMW M4 Competition Coupé redefine performance benchmarks and set themselves apart via visually-expressive design and provide that signature M dual-personality on road and track.


Karol Abrasowicz-Madej, Managing Director of BMW New Zealand: “BMW M fans in New Zealand have been waiting with eager anticipation for these models to reach our shores.  Deeply rooted in motorsport, the BMW M3 and M4 Competition are prime examples of the technology transfer from racing to series production and the Competition variant will deliver the highest levels of performance.”

Warranty and Condition Based Servicing


As with all New Zealand-new BMW vehicles a five-year warranty, three year service inclusive programme and five year roadside assist coverage is fully included.


All maintenance requirements for the BMW M3 Competition Sedan and BMW M4 Competition Coupé are controlled by the Condition Based Servicing (CBS) system.


With CBS, sensors and advanced algorithms monitor and calculate the conditions in which a vehicle is used, including mileage, time elapsed since its last service, fuel consumption and how a vehicle is driven. Based on the information captured, maintenance requirements are determined, identifying whether an annual vehicle inspection or oil service is due.


Selected BMW service and maintenance costs can be covered by a single, one-off advance payment with BMW Service Inclusive (BSI), which is available in two packages: Basic or Plus.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies.
