Is there a way to make the new BMW M3 less, um... divisive?

The M3 configurator is live, so let’s see what we can do with that nose

The new BMW M3’s face is a little… polarising, isn’t it? Still, the basics sound fantastic. The Competition versions that we’ll get in the UK use a 503bhp version of the 3.0-litre twin-turbo straight-six, with power being sent to either the rear wheels or (for the first time) all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Plus, there’ll be a Touring version this time too. Result.

So, now that the new M3/M4 configurator is live on BMW’s UK site, we decided to have a play to see if we could make it look a little more palatable. What do you reckon to our creations above? 

We’re thinking the £1,100 Tanzanite Blue II metallic paint with silver wheels is probably your best bet. Avoid the M Carbon exterior pack too. Although in answer to our own question – is there a way to make it less divisive? Well, yes – you’d just have to only ever look at it from the rear. 

Oh, and before you click this link to have a go yourself, it’s also worth noting that you can spec an M3 Comp to just over £100,000 if you really try. Ouch.
