If you were thinking of holding out for the facelifted BMW M3 with more power and better handling, you might want to reconsider.
Because it seems the second facelift (BMW calls it an LCI, or Life Cycle Impulse) includes not a single mechanical change.
So the next M3 won’t be any faster nor any more agile.
In fact, the changes that make up the LCI are limited to a few interior trim changes, the adoption of the improved iDrive version 6 and, externally, the adoption of the OLED (Organic LED) tail-lights that feature on the M4 GTS and M4 CS.
You’ll be able to see the facelifted M3 in Australian showrooms about the end of June.
But it seems you’ll have to look closely.
