The BMW Assist emergency telematics system (which includes automatic accident notification, stolen vehicle tracking and roadside assistance) is also standard.

2017 BMW M3 vs the competition

2017 Audi S4 -- A new generation for this model year. Technically, this 345-hp sedan plays one league down, facing off against the 320-hp BMW 340i or the Mercedes-AMG C43. But if the M3's performance is too much, the S4 is a refined and classy alternative.

2017 Cadillac ATS-V -- With a 455-hp twin-turbo V6, the compact ATS-V can sprint to 60 mph in under 4 seconds, and it's one of the best-handling sedans (or coupes) in the world.

2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 -- Endowed with 469 hp, or 503 hp in the S version, and everything that needs to go with it. Available in sedan, coupe and convertible (cabriolet) form.

Used BMW M3 -- The previous-generation M3 was an instant classic with its racy V8. You can find a certified pre-owned (CPO) specimen with a warranty for much less than a new M3.
