How the 2017 BMW M Series Is Updated

The 2017 BMW M Series features multiple models, each of which has their own updates for the model year. That being said, in the future, all BMW M models will have the M Driver's Package that gives you an increased electronically-controlled top speed and training at the famous BMW M Performance Center. The M2, for example, now offers wireless charging for your smartphone along with Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities, both of which are now part of the Executive Package.

Both the M3 and M4 received an adaptive M suspension as a standard feature for the 2017 model year, as well as upgraded navigation systems. These models also received the latest version of iDrive, and the formerly optional Executive Package which includes wireless charging, hot spot capabilities, and enhanced Bluetooth, is now standard. These particular models now offer Extended Merino Leather and a leather dashboard. Those interested in the 2017 M6 Gran Coupe will notice that Apple CarPlay is now available. The X5 M is mostly the same, while the X6 M has more aggressive styling cues, a performance-oriented interior, and unique suspension.

How the Current M Series Came to Be

The BMW M Series has a long history of track readiness with this group of vehicles having started in 1972 on the track. M Series started as a division designed specifically for the brand's racing teams, but BMW enthusiasts got involved and it grew. Although the first model to get the Motorsport brand was the 1978 M1, the Motorsports stripes first appeared in 1974 on the 2002 Turbo. The first Motorsport modified road car was the 1980 M535i, with the M3 following in late 1986. The M3 was a hot road car that was created to authenticate racing parts for the competitive counterparts of this BMW.

The 1988 Europa Meister Celebration M3 gave a good indication of where the BMW M Series would end up with its air conditioning, central locking, leather seats, and other high-end features that weren't necessarily racing related. After that, the M3 got softer and sales increased. BMW created the Evolution, GT, GTR, and CSL versions for those who were still interested in the race-oriented M models. Some key models throughout the years included the 1986 E30, 1992 E369, 1999 E46, and 2007 E92, each of which served as the beginning of a generation of the M3's predecessor. The E30 M3 was considered the most crucial model in the history of the BMW M Series, as it set the tone for the future.
