In line with the 3 Series, the 2016 M3 also gets LED taillights that help save on the power demand placed on the engine. Just like it is on the standard 3 Series sedan, full LED headlamps will be optional for the M3 facelift as well. Two new colours have also been unveiled for the M3, with one of them being Smoked Topaz metallic and the other being Champagne Quartz metallic. These two colours will be offered in addition to the existing Tanzanite Blue metallic and Azurite Schwarz metallic paint finishes.

An updated iDrive system has also been fitted into the sedan, giving it an online entertainment option. New chrome details on the interior have also been added. New wheels are also on offer. Customers can choose from 20 inch style 666M wheels.
