The BMW M3 Limited Edition 500 will offer enhanced specification over the standard car, it has been revealed. BMW will build 500 special edition models in both coupé and convertible bodystyles.

Although the Limited Edition 500 is mechanically unchanged over the standard car, BMW says more than extra equipment worth more than £4000 is fitted as standard. The new model costs £55,690 (coupé) and £59,785 (convertible); £1000 more than the base model.

The BMW M3 Limited Edition 500 is available in three colours: Imola Red, Mineral White and Santorini Blue, reflecting the colours of the iconic ‘M’ badge.

Each model will have “One of 500” laser cut into the dashboard inlay. The cabin is trimmed in BMW’s extended Novillo leather and features stitching to match the exterior colour.

The grille surround, side gills and tailpipes are finished in dark chrome. Both the coupé and convertible have Shadowline exterior trim and black alloy wheels.

BMW is attempting to extract a few extra quid from consumers before withdrawing this dated and fuel-inefficient model. Only a fool would be sucked in! E

Can't see what all the fuss is about.

BMW aren't trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes here. The model is soon to go out of production and they are trying to stimulate continued buyer interest up to that point by creating a limited edition with a sweetener on options.

If you don't like don't buy. Simples.
