BMW Malaysia today released a new price list, which included the recently launched X3 and X4. But it turns out that two new models have been quietly introduced – the G80 M3 and the G82 M4 Competition M xDrive, the all-wheel drive version of Munich’s high-performance sedans and coupes.
Adding full traction to the M3 and M4 wouldn’t be cheap – M xDrive variants are RM100,000 higher than their rear-wheel-drive counterparts, at their price. 770791 Malaysian Ringgit for four doors and 791,168 Malaysian Ringgit For the two doors. That’s with a standard 2-year unlimited mileage warranty; Throw in a five-year warranty and service package and balloon numbers MYR 800731 And 821508 Malaysian Ringgit Straight.
These prices, in case you’re wondering, actually include a 50 percent sales and service tax (SST) discount for all-import vehicles, and are valid until June 30. After that, M xDrive cars will be retailed at RM797860 And 860 MYRor 827800 MYR And Malaysian ringgit With five years of warranty and service included.
All that extra money buys you a purpose-built, rear-biased M xDrive system derived from the M5 and M8, featuring a multi-plate electronic clutch for variable torque distribution. Drivers can choose from three distinct drivetrain modes — 4WD for maximum traction, 4WD Sport for more rear bias and 2WD for smoked Keiichi Tsuchiya style drift with stability control off.
M xDrive models also come with a custom transfer box control unit and integrated wheel slip control. This allows cars to quickly compensate for front-to-rear wheel speed differences without any DSC intervention to reduce power – even though the components of the entire AWD system and the Active Rear Differential Torque Vectoring are connected to the DSC system.
Unique to the M xDrive variants is a double-joint spring-strut front axle, model-specific front axle geometry and a specially tuned steering ratio. All-wheel drive models also get an on-demand engine oil supply system to handle high-performance driving.
The M xDrive models are only available in the Best Dog competition format, which is already the standard spec for the Malaysian market. This means that the S58’s 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine produces 510 horsepower at 6250 rpm and 650 Nm of torque from 2750 to 5500 rpm, and is channeled via an eight-speed M Steptronic automatic gearbox to all four wheels. .
Equipped with the M3 and M4 Competition M xDrive, the 0-100 km/h sprint in just 3.5 seconds, four-tenths faster than their rear-wheel-drive counterparts. Top speed remains electronically limited to 250 km/h, or 290 km/h with the optional M Driver’s Package.
So far, BMW Malaysia has not released any information on specifications and equipment. However, the RM100k is a huge premium to the all-wheel drive franchise – especially since the option costs only €4,000 (RM19,000) in Europe – so expect the M xDrive models to receive a fair amount of additional equipment as standard.
These cars will likely come with the Innovation Package, which costs RM66,000 and adds things like laser headlights, a head-up display and a Harman Kardon audio system. Additionally, the M3 and M4 – including both RWD models – are finally equipped as standard in Malaysia with Driving Assistant, which adds independent emergency braking, lane-keep assist and blind spot monitoring. This was previously only offered either as part of an innovation package or as a separate cost option.
