The changes, however, are as small as they get with the new F80 M3 sedan getting the recently facelifted M4's new front end and hexagonal LED headlights. The M3 had already received the revised M4's taillights when it was last tweaked in 2015.

Under the bonnet, the M3 retains its twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre straight six engine which sends 425bhp to the rear wheels with the help of either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox.

The manual M3 will sprint from 0 - 100km/h in just 4,3 seconds while the automatic cuts tat time by two-tenths of a second to 4.1 seconds.

Those looking for a more power can opt for the M3 Competition which kicks the power levels up to 444bhp and sprints to 100km/h from standstill in 4 seconds flat.

The top speed in both M3 variants remains electronically limited to 250km/h though that can be raised to280 km/h with the M Driver's Package.
