£86k for M6 cabrio; revised X3 pricing
25 August 2006

BMW’s aiming to dominate September, with claims that it is releasing 32 new models next month.

While we’d consider a 325d SE and a 325d M Sport more as variants than different models, there are certainly plenty of Bavaria’s finest heading our way.

Most significant of the new models is the 3-series coupé range, which goes on sale on 23 September in 2.5-litre and 3.0-litre petrol form, at £28,090 and £31,290 respectively. Other engine variants join the line-up in October, while the 3-series saloon and Touring both get new petrol and diesel engines next month.

The revised X3 also goes on sale in September, with slightly increased prices. The 2.0d starts at £28,560, while the new 282bhp twin-turbo diesel 3.0sd – BMW’s most powerful diesel car - costs from £36,415.

You can also buy the new 7-series SE Exclusive editions next month (from £55,485), but we’ve saved the best until last – the new M6 convertible, revealed at the British motor show last month, will cost you £86,400, a premium of £4640 over its carbonfibre-roofed cousin.
