    On the outside, the M3 duo of models now have a pair of new LED headlamps, which use a single LED module for both high and low beams. The LED daytime running lamps were also revamped, and both sedan and wagon M3s ride on a new set of forged alloy wheels. 

    Inside, the German carmaker gave the updated M3 lineup a new three-spoke, leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel. More classy materials were added for the sedan and wagon’s instrument panels and interior trim pieces as well.
