New and Used BMW M3 for Sale Philippines 2017
Here are some pieces of trivia for you: Which car is the only one to earn more titles than the respectable Porsche 911 in Motorsport? Which vehicle participated in the most number of successful touring and grand touring racing championships in the world? Which car was included in the category, “5 greatest driver cars of all time” under Automobile Magazine’s 25 Greatest Cars of All Time? And which vehicle never had any breakdown or hard start in all its races in the Arctic cold? Of course, it’s none other than the new BMW M3. Indeed, the M3 is the best car in the world. And there’s no thinking otherwise, since even the toughest of of all critics melt like popsicles in the sun once they drive this car on the road.
The BMW M3, developed by BMW’s in-house motorsport division, is a high-performance version of the 3 Series. This compact, executive car has been around since 1985, and has already reached its sixth generation. Its most successful model, the E36 model, laid strong foundations in the success of its other models, and was named in Car and driver Magazine’s “10 Best Cars” list for every year of its production.
The BMW M3 Philippines is derived from the E46, E36, E30, E90/E92/E93, and F80 3-series.and sold in three body styles: coupe, saloon, and convertible. The M3 coupe, however, was replaced by the M4 coupe and convertible in 2015, while the saloon version retains it M3 name.
This car is a class on its own, and offers that “status symbol” appeal just by looking at the BMW logo. If you’re the type of person who needs that kind of emotional gratification, or if you’re too successful and secure to even care, then it’s a good car for you. Other rivals in this segment include Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Cadillac ATS.

The New BMW M3 2016 in the Philippines Has Been Finally Revealed
BMW M3 2016 in the Philippines
How is the 2016 BMW M3 different from the 2015 model?
One look at the new BMW M3 and you’ll see how much it has evolved over the years. This car never take things slow, and recent upgrades include better and more powerful and responsive engines, improved brake systems, more aerodynamic body enhancements, updated lightweight components, and added interior/exterior accents with the tri-colour "M" (Motorsport) emblem.
- Plug-in Hybrid 3 series
- Redesigned power steering
- Chassis enhancements
- Front struts
What is new about the BMW M3 2016 design?
The BMW M3 focuses heavily on improving its aerodynamics, which can easily be seen on the exterior. Its sleek contours can channel the wind effectively, while the smooth underbody, Gurney spoiler, and air dam lessens lift and creates excellent handling. What’s more, the large air intakes effectively cools the car down, so the engine still performs well even under pressure.
- Harmon Kardon sound system
- Ambient lighting
- New navigation hardware
- Keyless access
What are BMW M3 2016 specs and features?
BMW keeps upgrading their engine, and we commend them for this effort. Shunning the V8 engine in favor of the inline-6 layout, they decided to splurge a little extra with the M TwinPower Turbo to crank out an impressive 431 hp and 550 Nm of torque. This means it can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds! Now you see why it keeps winning all those car races…
- Cruise control
- Navigation system
What are BMW M3 2016 prices in the Philippines?
Before we talk about price, let’s get this straight: First, it’s a BMW. Second, it’s one—if not—the best car in the world. Third, it’s multi-awarded. So, it wouldn’t take long for you to figure out that really an expensive car, isn’t it? However, if you have the money, then we’d suggest you go for it. You only live once, so why not enjoy the best car in the world at least once this lifetime?
- BMW M3 DCT: P5,200,000
- BMW M3 SMG: P3,700,000
BMW M3 Review in the Philippines
BMW M3 Specs and Performance
Boasting of hardcore performance right at the get go, this car’s muscular body has an aluminum hood and fenders packed with bits of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic on the side. It also uses a lot of aluminum and carbon fibers in the hood, roof, driveshaft, and trunk lid. Our translation: it’s light. This generation is actually around 176 pounds lighter than its predecessor’s hefty 3,450 pounder, so the car has better handling and performance on the road.
The M3 also has a new suspension system, with a double joint sprung front axle that uses lightweight materials. Its Adaptive M suspension system allows you to choose which mode setting you want: Comfort, Sport, or Sport+.
BMW M3 Fuel Consumption
In our opinion, fuel and economy don’t always go well together, so we’re not surprised that the M3 gulps a lot of gas. What we suggest is that you go easy on the accelerator, and just drive slow to save some fuel. Then from time to time, let your hair down and pound on the accelerator as hard as you can. It feels good, doesn’t it?
New BMW M3 fuel consumption:
- BMW M3 2016: 11.1 l/100km
- BMW M3 2015: 10.7 l/100km
- BMW M3 2013: 13.7 l/100km

BMW M3 Design
BMW M3 Interior
This car’s interiors look like it came out of BMW’s design handbook, making it look handsomely luxurious, matter-of-fact, simple, and elegant. Secure, without a need to flaunt itself, it doesn’t need to boast of its opulence, since you feel it once you get inside. This car has ample legroom in the second row, so you not only get great interiors, you also get enough space to move around.
- SensaTec upholstery
- Multi-level heating seats
- Height adjustable seats
- Universal remote transmitter
- Front and rear door pockets
- Reverse tilt passenger mirror
BMW M3 Exterior
There’s no denying that this car looks good in an understated kind of way. It creates more defined character lines and visual dynamics between the grille and headlights, so anyone will know that it is a 3 Series (and nothing else). It also doesn’t join the bandwagon, avoiding those large, wide-mouthed grilles most car manufacturers seem to relish these days. They still stick to the smaller ones--probably to avoid looking too garish and loud. As we’ve said earlier, this car doesn’t need to toot its horn to show who’s really the boss.
- Rear defogger
- Rear spoiler
- 18” alloy wheels
- Performance tires
- Rain sensing wipers
- Daytime running lights
BMW M3 Color Options
Car buyers interested in the M3 can choose from seven unique and richly textured colors:
- Azurite Black Metallic
- Sakhir Orange Metallic
- Tanzanite Blue Metallic
- Mineral Grey Metallic
- Alpine White
- Austin Yellow Metallic
