There's a matching 2021 BMW M4 Competition

Ronnie Fieg is the proprietor of the fashion label Kith, and he's apparently quite a BMW fan. He's now showing off a restored 1989 BMW M3 going by the name and the matching 2021 BMW M4 Design Study by Kith. They make quite a striking pair in the video above showing the two vehicles meeting, along with lots of other older BMWs.

1988 BMW M3 Just Sold For Almost Two Times The Price Of New M8 Coupe

  1988 BMW M3 Just Sold For Almost Two Times The Price Of New M8 Coupe And we have more than 130 photos of it. There’s absolutely no need to explain how important the BMW M3 (E30) was not only for BMW but for the entire automotive industry. A car that totally changed the performance vehicle segment and that is still appreciated for its dynamic capabilities even today. No wonder one of the best M3 (E30) examples we’ve ever seen just sold at an online auction for more than three times the starting price of a brand new BMW M4 Coupe.

Fieg's M3 first received a full rejuvenation from BMW in Germany using the company's authentic replacement parts. The exterior wears the gorgeous shade Cinnabar Red. For personalization, the roundels on the interior and exterior now show "KITH," instead of BMW. The company also fits custom leather upholstery that incorporates embossed Kith logos.

He leaves it mechanically stock, according to BMW Blog. This means there's a 2.3-liter four-cylinder under the hood that makes 192 horsepower (143 kilowatts) and 170 pound-feet (230.5 Newton-meters) of torque. It runs through a five-speed manual.

The 2021 M4 Competition is also Cinnabar Red, which is not a color in the regular factory color palette for the new coupe. Like with the E30, the roundels now show "KITH" on them. The Kith-embossed leather also shows up in a few places like the seat headrests and center console lid.

Electric Vehicles are Too Damn Expensive

  Electric Vehicles are Too Damn Expensive The average Josephine on the street can’t afford to step into most electric vehicles on sale in the U.S. today, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has admitted. “Our cars are not affordable enough,” Musk said during his second-quarter earnings call in July. “We need to fix that.” Electric cars and crossovers remain far too expensive to be daily commuters for the middle- and working-classes, who in congested urban areas, at least, may be turning to e-bikes instead, an electric segment in which U.S. sales spiked 92-percent in April and 137-percent in May, according to Bicycle Retailer and Industry News.

The E30 M3 Has Appreciated On The Second-Hand Market:

  • 1988 BMW M3 Just Sold For Almost Two Times The Price Of New M8 Coupe
  • Ex-Paul Walker 1991 BMW M3 Can Be Yours For Just $150,000

The M4 Competition is the hotter variant of the new model that makes 503 hp (375 kW) from a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo inline-six, versus 473 hp (353 kW) for the regular model. The more powerful variant reaches 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 3.8 seconds. The xDrive version of the Competition arrives in the US later next year.
