Thumbs up 2011 M3 competition package (ZCP) model confirmed!

UPDATE:

See following link for OFFICIAL M3 Competition (ZCP) Package details:
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=345600




It has been confirmed HERE and by Bimmerfile that there will indeed be an M3 Competition Package (ZCP) available for the 2011 M3! The ZCP Package is now in BMW's order bank.

While exact details of the ZCP Competition Package are not yet available, if the E46 M3 Competition model is any indication, there will be both performance and cosmetic enhancements. The E46 M3 competition package included tweaks to the car's handling via a tuned suspension, a more direct steering ratio, larger wheels, CSL brakes, larger rotors, and high performance tires.

Cosmetic enhancements on the E46 ZCP Competition included alcantara fabric throughout the interior and a alcantara steering wheel and handbrake. A new exclusive color, Interlagos Blue, was also introduced with the ZCP Competition Package.

What upgrades the new M3 Competition Package will include remains to be seen, but it's safe to say we'll many similar enhancements from the E46 M3 ZCP.


UPDATE FROM MARK'S M (1/21/10):


Quote:
Oh thanks gentlemen (and MRakete), it's still exciting (for me anyways) to have this officially on the books.

Therefore, I'll be confirming contents and ordering my E92 next week (just waiting for a package from Germany with paint, trim and interior samples to see them together in person rather than electronically). I'm tentatively going to be scheduled for April production (although ZCP packages do start in March as you've all reported) but that's because of the Individual stuff I've specified over and above the Comp. Pkg - which add an extra 10 weeks to the process. This is my fault because I've been so damned undecisive about certain things and keep asking for changes. Serves me right but oh well. I expect to have the Cdn pricing for ZCP when I order so I'll let you guys know what it is if it hasn't already been released (U.S. pricing will be similar - aka a little less - no doubt).

The bad news for ZCP......no special colors at this time. And aajami, I'm really sorry about this one.....no sport exhaust option.

As well, ZCP packages will get the regular 19" M3 tires (flavor of the day). I had a big techical discussion with BMW about why I couldn't get the Pirelli Corsa's in the larger GTS sizes.....and lost. To make a long story short, I was told the tires "wouldn't work quite right" with our regular M3's. Yes, quite alot of you have "upped" your tire/wheel sizes without any ill effects but remember that BMW the company has to keep things pretty generic especially for a mass production car like the M3 ZCP. Also, the offsets for the GTS wheels haven't been finalized for production so they may in fact be different when the GTS is finally ready to go. So I've given up....and frankly I'd rather deal with more mundane things like choosing a paint color.....but that's Ok, no big deal.

Speaking of color again, Frozen Grey will be available shortly for those of you who'd like it but according to a fellow Cdn poster "Mr. D." who is doing something similar to me and dealing with the same people in Germany, North America apparently has to wait until a "U.K. only" special edition run of Frozen Greys are produced. BMW will be committing full paint production capacity to the British cars commencing in March. August production was what was suggested for North American availability for Frozen Grey. Well I never!!!

But here's something for you guys who love the matte look. Sounds like there's more to come!! I was told that BMW wanted to offer matte COLORS for the ZCP right away but "they" were still being tested. Hmmm, seeing as Frozen Grey is already out there, looks like alternatives will be available in the near future. Keep your fingers crossed.

All in all, I think it's great that BMW is offering a few changes here and there before this car goes away in 2012 or 13. Makes life interesting!!

Regards, Mark


UPDATE FROM MR.D (1/21/10):


Quote:
Gents, I've put through my 2011 M3 ZCP order, for April Delivery, and I can confirm the following:

1. 19" GTS Wheels but in Silver
2. EDC Upgrade
3. 10MM Lower Springs

Its priced at approx. $4500 Canadian IIRC.

Few more notes -- as Mark and I have been sharing our dialogue with BMW Canada:

1. Frozen Grey is available, but not until August Production, as the UK has all of the Frozen Grey spots until then. Apparently, in March, the UK will receive a Frozen Grey edition..don't know the contents except colour.

2. Black Trim (Grill, Exhaust, etc) from the 2010 Edition Model is NOT available..the supplier ended production and they won't do one-offs anymore. I pressed and pressed, but no dice..

3. Black GTS wheels ARE available, but not until August production (IE after the GTS are delivered to customers)

4. Other note: I tried ordering the BMW Performance seats as an individual item, to no avail.

Hope this helps everyone..

That's very exciting news!

I'm sure many individuals will be interested in the new ZCP M3.

LOL... +1 and I doubt they will be as good as the Brembos. (Would they actually stoop so low as to use the actual Brembos and charge us 2 times the cost??!!)

PLUS... I would rather see the words "Brembo" over "M" in my wheel wells anyways....

It will carry the GTS rims, but unfortunate not black. They come in 9x19 front and 10x19 rear!
Forgot to mention, it will also be lowered by different springs...

Perhaps, but it will be a special package worth having

Possibly. I am going to reserve my excitement until I hear details on this. Surely a front lip spoiler is in order

Thanks!!!

Wow! I'm excited.

I work for a BMW dealership, and went into the order bank immediately upon reading your post, and sure enough! It's in there.

There's no description of what you actually get with ZCP other than EDC and it conflicts with the stand alone 19" wheel option so it's safe to say you get 19's. I hope you get a break on the tech pkg since it also includes EDC.

I'll post if I find out anything, although it looks like BMW tells everyone EXCEPT the dealers about breaking news. I.E. the 335is, it's been on the order bank for over a month, and still no official information from BMW.

Hell yes. Give me Imola Red interior too. I don't much like my Fox in comparison. Even thinking about sticking with the cloth for my next one.

If you ever want to trade your Fox Red for my Black....let me know

I love Fox Red. It is the only regret that I have in regards to my M3.

From Wiki:

"A versatile material, Alcantara is found in a variety of settings. The company outlines applications including furniture, clothing, jewelry, automotive, helmets and more. Alcantara is composed of 68% polyester and 32% polyurethane. It is this mixture of materials that gives Alcantara its increased durability and stain resistance.

The appearance and tactile feel of the material is similar to that of suede, and it may be incorrectly identified as such, or as "Alcantara leather", on occasion. It is finding application in seating as well as dash trimming and headliners in many high-end OEM automotive applications. There are currently three versions of Alcantara available: cover (made for seating surfaces); panel (made for door/dash applications); and soft (made for headliners).

Some of Alcantara's Ultrasuede (tm) is flame retardant. Some versions are designated as flame retardant in order to meet certain fire standards for both furnishings and automobile applications.

One unique property of this non-woven product that sets it apart from non-Toray Industries materials, is that it is virtually identical on both sides, with the exception of the Alcantara 'cover' material which is made for seating surfaces. Many of the other "micro suedes" and "micro fibres" are distinctly different on both sides and are often a woven fabric. One way to test for this "non-woven" characteristic is to cut very thin strips off the material...if it frays it is not Toray Industries' Ultrasuede or Alcantara."
