Official BMW NA E46 M3 Club Sport Package Information
ALL-NEW CLUB SPORT PACKAGE FOR THE 2005 BMW M3 COUPE
For Discerning Driver Who Wants the Ultimate in M3 Handling Performance
Woodcliff Lake, NJ, July 13, 2004... BMW has announced the all-new Club Sport Package for the 2005 M3 Coupe. Already renowned for its performance and handling, the new Club Sport Package takes M3 performance to the razor?s edge. Every aspect of the M3?s handling has been tweaked resulting in the best-handling M3 ever.
The wheels are 19-inch forged-alloy wheels with high-performance tires. They connect to a suspension with more sporting calibration. Turn-in is quicker with a more direct steering ratio which goes from 15.4:1 to 14.5:1. The Dynamic Stability Control system includes a less intrusive M track mode to ensure that you can have the security of DSC and enjoy spirited driving too. For inclement conditions the regular DSC mode remains. To complement this increase in handling capability, the brakes have been modified to include compound and cross-drilled rotors. The front rotors have also been enlarged from12.8 to13.6 inches.
As the serious enthusiast would expect, the Club Sport Package is available in combination with the optional Sequential Manual Gearbox.
The interior enhancements of the package are subtle but purposeful. The Alcantara steering wheel and handbrake grip feel good to the touch. The addition of the steering wheel-mounted button for the DSC M track mode requires the deletion of the multi-function controls and cruise control. The Club Sport Package is available with all M3 Coupe interior and exterior color and trim combinations. Two options are exclusive to the Club Sport. Special Club Sport aluminum trim is available for the interior. A new exterior color, Interlagos Blue, is offered only with this package.
The Club Sport Package will be available for 2005 M3 Coupes beginning with December 2004 production. The price for the package will be $4,000.
