Coming BMW X3 M likely getting Competition version

And the M3, not to be outdone, may get an upgrade too

The BMW X3 M remains an open secret — open because we know many of its details and we've seen it testing on the Nürburgring already, secret because BMW still hasn't confirmed it. What will follow, according to Spanish outlet Motor.es, is a slightly less-open secret: a Competition Package for the X3 M. Whereas the standard X3 M is expected to produce around 450 horsepower, the Competition Package would up that to 475 hp.

Perhaps a sport-tuned SUV will always seem conflicted, but at least this one makes fun noises.

It must've startled the neighbors. Heck, it startled me. The 2018 BMW X3 M40i is a far louder car than you'd expect, with a warbling buzz of an exhaust note that sliced through the otherwise placid Portlandian morning. I sheepishly looked around for someone in an Outback sneering at the Phytonic Blue BMW brashly announcing its presence.
