Full M cars are vehicles of a different variety. They're the best that BMW has to offer, both in terms of hardware and driving dynamics. Understandably, all of them from the M135i to the M4 Coupe, cost a very, very pretty penny. You won't be shelling out less than P4.4 million for one here in the Philippines.
If you can't afford losing both kidneys to make that jump to a full-blown M vehicle, why not settle for the next best thing? BMW's M Sport packages add just a pinch of sportiness to the brand's 'regular' offerings, and arguably the most fun of the bunch is the BMW 320d M Sport.
This 3-Series runs on a 2.0-liter diesel engine (190hp and 400Nm) with a top speed of 230kph. Combine this with its compact size, great handling, a tuned M Sport suspension, a handful of aesthetic tweaks inside and out, an M Sport aero package, and a sleek, sporty interior, and you've got one hell of a car on your hands.
At nearly P4 million, many of you might say it's still pricey--but that's still considerably cheaper than the closest M car. Like we said, if you're looking for a more dynamic BMW experience without mortgaging your house or two for an M car, this should be worth your time.
