BMW 3-Series GT Spiced Up with M Performance Parts


Read more

Come to think of it, of all the additions to BMW's 3-Series range over the years, and that includes the related X3 crossover, the one that makes the most practical sense is the 3-Series Gran Turismo with its extended wheelbase, increased headroom, liftgate and much roomier boot, yet it has received the most flack.

Rumor has it that a fully-fledged M variant of the 2-Series coupe, an M2, could hit the global market in 2016.
