There might be sub-zero temperatures here at our headquarters in Ann Arbor, Michigan, but in Japan, BMW is turning up the heat. The Bavarians are treating the Japanese to an extra dose of exclusivity with limited runs of specially equipped M3 and M4 Competition models called the Heat Editions.

Following the release of the X5 M and X6 M Black Fire Editions, these latest cars were again created using a bevy of BMW M Performance parts. Each sports carbon-fiber mirror covers, a carbon front splitter on an M Performance fascia, and a carbon-fiber rear diffuser. Inside is an M Performance steering wheel wrapped in microsuede, and carbon fiber is applied to the iDrive knob, the center console, the dashboard, and the steering wheel. Stainless-steel pedals and Heat Edition badging also are fitted. While red might be an appropriate color for something called the Heat Edition, both of the special M3 and M4 cars are draped in Tanzanite Blue Metallic, a BMW Individual paint color that’s contrasted here with black 20-inch forged aluminum wheels. Only 30 examples—split evenly between M3s and M4s—will be built for Japan, with deliveries slated to start in February.

In other BMW of Japan news, the company also announced that it will expand the availability of its 3-series M Sport Edition Shadow in that country. Now available on the 318i, the 320i, the 320i xDrive, the 320d, and the 330e plug-in hybrid, the package features 19-inch M Performance wheels, blacked-out kidney grilles, and darkened lenses for the LED head- and taillamps. The Shadow cars also get black dakota leather seats and carbon-fiber interior trim, and wear an exclusive orange exterior hue.
