BMW Group Malaysia unleashes the all-new 3 Series today! It arrives in 330i M-Sport form, specced exclusively for Malaysia and is the only version offered at the moment. The new body is now 50% more rigid than before, also bigger in every way, yet lighter by 25kg. A lot has happened since the last F30, this G20 version loses the handbrake, has an all-new silhouette, notched headlights nestling bi-LEDs, smoked L-shaped taillights, siamese twin kidney grilles and they’ve also split the iconic Hoffmeister Kink.

There’s an all-new interior too, baby 5 series like but with a lot more metallic hexagonal motifs. The new shift console houses a start / stop button, has new drive modes and an exquisite gear knob made of a clear glob, smoked. Beneath the new M-Sport steering is the sensational digital instrument cluster, has mirrored speedo and tacho gauges, blend-in navi display (jaw dropper) and even song covers if you want. Interior also has ambient lighting for good evening mood. Price? RM328,800
