2018 BMW M3 Saloon F80 3.0 M-DCT | Competition Package 450HP | £11,000 of Factory Extras

  • M-DCT 7-Speed Transmission
  • M TwinPower Turbo 3.0 6-Cylinder
  • Saloon
  • Petrol
  • 4 Doors
  • 5 Seats


This BMW Individual Space Grey Competition Package M3 is a Classy Specification. Equipped with a Factory-Fitted M-Performance Carbon Aerodynamic Package (£3,000) which adds aggression to this Super-Saloon’s Masculine Bodylines and Swollen Wheel Arches! Presented to you in utterly perfect condition after being corrected and refined by our expert detailing team prior to sale after our signature Multi-Stage Machine Paintwork Correction, as our detail photos show. This example is for those Perfectionists amongst us.

Leaving the factory with just over £11,000 of Factory Optional Extras, this M-DCT (£2,645) M3 has one of the most desirable specifications we have ever had. Its Individual Metallic Grey Paintwork (£2,550) complimented perfectly with Smoked Black 666M Forged Wheels (£175) on the exterior. Upon entering the cockpit, you’ll be sitting in Competition Pack Specific Lightweight M-Bucket Seats finished in Black Merino Leather surround by Carbon Interior Inlays (£395). The optional M-Heads-Up Display (£825) displays essential information such as Speed, Revs & Satellite Navigation information directly onto the windscreen so the driver can stay focused on the road. The superb Harmon Kardon Sound System (£675), Reversing Camera (£330) and Heated Steering Wheel (£155) ensures this M3 has the equipment to match its Performance!

Competition Package (£3,000) provides +19bhp increase from its in-line 6 Cylinder Turbocharged Engine boosting its power to 450HP & 550Nm. However, it’s the Chassis adjustments hiding underneath it’s Space Grey body that is the most impressive aspect of the Competition Package upgrade. Smoother Power Delivery, Smoother Gearbox Calibration, Re-Tuned Suspension & Chassis Refinements, Re-Calibrated Rear Differential, Stability Control System and Throttle Response all contribute to much more Traction and Predictability than the Non-Competition M3. This is the most Driver-Focused German Performance Saloon you can buy; which can be useable everyday in our humble opinion. 

Crucially, this is an Non-OPF (Petrol Particulate Filter) Pre-WTLP vehicle. Which means its exhaust sound is un-muffled, so you can thoroughly enjoy the soundtrack from the wonderful S55 6-Cylinder engine. We feel this Generation M3 is the perfect balance between the Analogue and Digital Age with all the amenities you would now expect coupled with Real Driver Engagement; Sporting the Classic M Setup of an RWD in-line 6 Cylinder.

Amazingly, this car has completed only 11,800 miles with 2 previous owners. Every service has been completed by an BMW Main Dealer Service Centre religiously with a comprehensive history file, and the car is ready to drive away in an incredible condition.

This is one of the last F80 M3’s ever registered in the U.K as production stopped in 2018 (but carried on for the M4 until late 2020) and is truly a BMW-M that’s worth keeping in the perfect form and condition that we will deliver it in. If you want to keep this car in our better-than-factory-finish, you might also consider an extra installation of genuine XPEL Paint Protection Film as this is one of the greatest condition 3-year-old M3’s we’ve ever had! Credit to it’s previous owner.

If you want that new-car feeling (without that new car price), and to enjoy the step-up to one of BMW’s greatest-ever models, this M3 stands ready to put the smile back on your face.

The lustre of its Individual Metallic Grey Paintwork has been amplified after our 40-Hour Detailing Process which includes a Multi-Stage Machine Paintwork Correction to all areas; we photograph our cars under 3,000 Watt of LED Light to showcase the quality of our Vehicle Preparation which is truly Market Leading.
