For the 2016 model year, BMW M3 sedan receives a range of enhancements, including new headlights, taillights and improved infotainment systems. Two new body colors will also be available: Smoked Topaz and Champagne Quartz.

New for 2016: More Efficient LED Headlights

Full LED headlights are more efficient and accentuate the front end. In addition, the "eyes" of the of the 2016 M3 sedan have moved further apart, visually strengthening the car's broad stance on the road. The daytime running lights are even more striking thanks to the leveled off upper and lower edges of the LED light tubes. These also form a visual connection with the BMW kidney grille in the shape of an LED light bar.

New for 2016: Full-LED Taillights

The newly designed rear lights are full-LED units. The light bars, arranged in a distinctive BMW "L" shape and now more heavily curved, lend greater dynamic presence to the rear end of the 2016 M3. Added to which, the integrated LED brake lights raise safety another notch thanks to their faster responses. The two-piece LED indicators form a horizontal band of light across both sections of the rear lights.

New for 2016: Fastest Mobile Technology

The optional latest-generation Navigation System boasts quicker start-up, faster route calculation along with more realistic 3D visualization in cities. The navigation maps are automatically updated free of charge for a period of three years via the embedded SIM cards and the vehicles LTE system. This LTE technology when fitted with the Navigation System enhances USB, Bluetooth and smartphone integration. This greatly improves network coverage and data transmission speeds, especially in rural areas.

ConnectedDrive Services form part of the standard specification of the 2016 BMW M3 sedan. A SIM card built into the vehicle enables the customer to access a range of services from BMW ConnectedDrive without the need for a smartphone. The available Concierge Service, for example, makes it possible to select points of interest while driving, such as pharmacies, restaurants or hotels, make a reservation if desired, and have them sent straight to the vehicle as a navigation destination together with all the relevant contact data.

The new BMW 3 Series is equipped with BMW Assist eCall (Enhanced Automatic Collision Notification) to ensure better safety while driving. In case of airbag deployment this system uses the built-in SIM card to automatically transmit the severity of the accident and the vehicle's location to the BMW Assist Response Center. The data will then be utilized to generate the best possible emergency response.
