BMW M4 ConfiguratorBMW has just made your lunch break a little more interesting by launching the configurators for the M3 and M4. Pricing and options for the new sports coupe and sedan was revealed just a few days ago, but it's always more fun to see the visual effect your personalizations have on the bottom line.

The M3 and M4 start at $62,000 and $64,200, respectively, without a $925 destination charge. However, as soon as the configurator is opened, both models default with metallic paint ($550) and the M Double-clutch Transmission ($2900), plus extended leather on the M3 ($950) and full leather on the M4 ($3,500). This is basically the way they were shown when displayed at auto shows. Of course, there's nothing preventing users from setting up these performance machines however they like.

So sit down at your desk with a cup of coffee or a sandwich and create your perfect German sport sedan or coupe. It's always fun to see how much money can be spent on a dream car.

      Configured mine (M3) with cloth, all packages clicked, manual, HK sound and adaptive suspension for 72k. I come up with around 71k for my "configured" C63 AMG and 78k for RS5. Not too bad, I guess, for that category.

      Those seats...wow. I'm just glad I can get the same steering wheel on my $339/month 320i ZSP.

      Well that was easy... Yas Marina blue, check. Manual transmission, check. 19" wheels, check. $65K OTD and worth every penny...

      I wish they had more traditional colors for the M3. Like the Melbourne Red Metallic.... Or a simple Jet Black.. (They only have an Alpine white)... I guess given the color choices, the Marina Blue would be the best choice for me... I would end up configuring 1) Cloth/leather combo 2) Stick 3) Adaptive M suspension 4) Bluetooth That's it, It would be a performance/track oriented... No sunroof, cameras, no parking assist, rear camera, etc. About $64.5k, about the price of my F10 550... Lol....

      My lunch hour is safe. I'm not about to spend $80K on a hopped up 3-series.

        You've never been a demographic they've catered to, then. The base pricing is literally online within a fraction of a percent compared to the E46 M3 after adjusting for inflation, plus this technically packs more features and performance for the same coin.

      The specs say that the new M3 weighs a little under 3600 lbs. I thought this was suppose to be significantly lighter?

      I am torn between my current E92 M3 and the new M4. I guess I will have to go test drive one but it has to be miles better before it will make me take the leap. I really love my E92. And that V8 noise....wow!

      Yas Marina Blue is too light. Bring back Le Mans Blue.

      I give BMW about a year until they stuff a V10 in this car and run it for two years saying they're going to homologate it and then don't. Those two years BMW will dominate that class. Oh wait…they already did that before.

        The V10 is dead...

        What car did they stuff a V10 in? Or are you referring to the E46 M3 GTR, a car which they actually homologate (albeit to an extremely limited production of 10). There's no reason for BMW to ditch the V8 for a V10, that'd just be more weight, larger size, greater complexity (reliability issues), and peakier deliver. All for little to no gains. They'd more likely adopt a turbo I6 setup if the rulebook would allow it.
