2017 BMW M3 30 Jahre Edition

One-Owner 30 Jahre Edition M3, One of 150 in the US.

The fifth generation BMW M3, internally referred to as F80, brought dramatic performance improvements over the outgoing E90 generation. The car was the first turbocharged M3 ever but brought the return to BMW’s iconic inline-6 engine configuration. With 406 ft-lb of torque, the engine has a massively different character from the 295 ft-lb naturally-aspirated V8 it replaced. Although it was quite a bit faster, it lost some of the texture and joyfulness of the previous car, and BMW engineers sought to rectify this with the introduction of the Competition Package in 2016.

At first blush, the Competition Package seems relatively benign, with 19hp more, stiffer springs and roll bars, different wheels and front seats, and revised exhaust, traction control, differential, and dampers. But collectively, the changes transform the car, from how it sounds to how it goes around corners to how it puts down power. The initial F80 was not without its detractors and the calibration and hardware changes contained in the Competition Package systematically address virtually every dynamic complaint leveled against the car when it first appeared.

The Competition Package was an appropriate 30th birthday present to the M3, bringing it closer to its original roots, but BMW went one step further, offering the 30 Jahre edition. Finished in Individual Macau blue (a color applied to the E30 M3 Sport Evolution), the 30 Jahre M3s were all equipped with the Competition Package and used a two-tone black and Fjord blue leather interior. Just 500 examples were built, of which only 150 examples came to the United States. The cars were also heavily optioned with Executive and Driver Assistance Plus Packages, as well as LED headlights.

This 30 Jahre M3 is equipped with the dual clutch transmission and has covered 12,000 miles from new. A lifelong California car, its current owner leased it new and subsequently bought it out from BMW Financial. It has been dealer maintained and is unmodified aside from the fitment of JRZ adjustable coilovers and tinted windows. It comes with service records as well as original books, M mobility kit, and luggage net.
