BMW South Africa has given the local market a special edition of its most popular sedan, the 3 Series Mzansi Edition. Similar to the X3 Mzansi Edition, the model has been given a sporty exterior upgrade and additional cabin styling.
More style added for the BMW 3 Series Mzansi Edition.
BMW has given the 3 Series Mzansi Edition their M Sport package. This includes high-gloss Shadow Line detailing for both of the grille frames and M Individual Lights in Shadow Line. The package also comes with carbon mirror caps, a black and carbon fibre front splitter and a black rear diffuser.
Behind the 19-inch M light-alloy wheels are red M Sport brake callipers. While at the back of this special edition, BMW has given the model black chrome exhaust tailpipes and carbon fibre rear spoiler. Finally, finishing off the standard design features, when you open the door, there are LED door projectors that display the M logo on the ground.
Buyers will get to choose between five colours – Portimao Blue, Black Sapphire Metallic, Mineral Grey Metallic, Mineral White Metallic and Alpine White. They will also have the option to specify for the glow grille. This feature puts LEDs into the grille that light up when the car locks and unlocks.
Updated cabin materials and features.
Inside, the cabin uses SensaTec and Alcantara for upholstery. The former is a fancier name for leatherette, a synthetic material made to resemble leather. These materials are finished with contrast stitching.
Up top, there is a glass sunroof. However, if you want more light, you can turn on the ambient lighting using the BMW Live Cockpit Professional.
