The unit seen here is done in the flawless Isle of Man Green saint tone and seems, by all accounts, to be fitted with the Innovation Package, which adds a few must-add alternatives. Notwithstanding, the substance of said pack appears to have changed since the dispatch, for certain prominent increases and exclusions.

This incorporates M tricolor safety belts, a head-up show, a stopping partner, a converse camera, stirred silver switches, the Connected Package Professional (with remote Apple CarPlay and Android Auto availability), Qi remote charging and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound framework.
In particular, the Innovation Package tosses in the Driving Assistant which, incredibly, is absent on the base M3; it comprises of self-sufficient crisis slowing down, path keeping help and vulnerable side checking. No, you actually don’t gain versatile voyage power or path centring help – those are essential for the discretionary Driving Assistant Professional, which costs an incredible RM22,480.
Talking about costs, the expense of the Innovation Package has gone up somewhat, more than even the post-promotion estimating that happened toward the start of the year. The pack currently retails RM1,000 higher at RM76,000, bringing the complete cost of the vehicle up to RM715,664 out and about without protection (or RM761,597 with a five-year, limitless mileage guarantee and a five-year administration bundle).
