Thumbs up Monte Carlo Blue BMW M3 Edition showcased at Frankfurt IAA

As featured on M3post Homepage.


The "BMW M3 Edition" limited edition M3 (full original press release) was shown off at the Frankfurt IAA in this gorgeous Monte Carlo Blue color.

The BMW M3 Edition models began production in July and will be produced for a limited run of just six months. These special edition M3's are available in Monte Carlo Blue, Alpine White, Black, and Dakar Yellow. The Monte Carlo Blue is the only one of these colors that comes in a metcallic finish. BMW Individual High-Gloss Satin Chrome accentuates all BMW M3 Edition Models.

The openings on the engine compartment lid on all models are finished in black, the BMW kidney grille, the side gills and the dual tailpipes on the exhaust system come in dark eloxy-plated chrome. The caps on the special BMW M exterior mirrors are likewise finished in black and are connected to the A-pillars by dual arms extending out of the mirror base finished in body colour.

The surfaces on the centre armrest, the centre console and the armrests on the door panels are finished in White on the Alpine White and Black models. At the same time these Edition Models come with interior trim in Carbon Structure Leather with white contrasting seams. The seats in Black Novillo Leather feature bespoke contrasting seams as well as vertical trim stripes on the upper section of the backrest and at the front of the legrest. On the Alpine White and Black models, these features come in white, on the Dakar Yellow and Monte Carlo Blue models they are in the appropriate exterior colour.

As a further feature the armrests and door closing handles at the inside on the Dakar Yellow and Monte Carlo Blue models come with yellow and, respectively, blue contrasting seams. And last but certainly not least, entry trim bars in Checkered Flag Design bearing the "M3" model designation give all Edition Models yet another highlight.

To optimise the looks of the car, all four Edition Models come with specially designed light-alloy rims and a unique suspension: On all models the 19-inch forged M light-alloy rims in double-spoke design are available either in black or in the classic rim colour. And on the Alpine White, Black and Monte Carlo Blue models, the same rims are also available in a special white contrasting colour with polished spokes.

The suspension of the BMW M3 Edition Models adds to the sporting style of the cars, lowering the entire body by 10 millimetres or 0.4".

This is one of the few colors where the e92 looks good. I really like it.

Meh, looks like they just mostly copied what we've been doing to our M3's since day one. Black wheels,grills.

I do like the seats though.
