Here’s official details of the 2011 M3 Competition (ZCP) Package for the US: the Competition Package will cost $2,500 and further enhances the highly responsive chassis by installing 19″ wheels with greater offset for a wider track, and a 10mm lower suspension. Combined with Electronic Damping Control and Dynamic Stability Control, both remapped for better corning, this makes the M3 Coupe or Sedan with this package about the best handling production M car ever built. There are also matte color options available - details inside.
Some more 2011 M3 Competition Package (ZCP) information has come to light. Though the ZCP package will include special ZCP competition wheels, the tires will be regular 19″ M3 wheels. Also coming to light is good news for fans of matte color finish: there will likely be multiple matte colors options for the ZCP M3.
It’s been confirmed that the 2011 M3 will receive a competition package (ZCP) just as with the E46 M3. Exact package details are not yet available, but the E46 M3 competition package should provide some good direction as to what enhancements the ZCP package will include.
