    I spent a good part of my day today clearing up the single garage of my 3-door garage and was disappointed I could barely park my 2017 Volt.

    I was planning on parking the M3 there sometime down the line and was wondering if

    1 - If there are specs on how wide the M3 is compared to the 2017 Volt?

    2 - Are there power folding mirrors on the M3? Parking would be a little easier if it had them.

    Thanks

    Thank you Bluestar. I looked up Chevy Volt, which was 71.2 without Mirrors. Mirrors are adding 5 inches per side, so that's 81.2 realistically.

    The page you linked is 74.2. Hopefully that is with mirrors.

    The Model S width is 77.3 but I am hoping that includes mirrors.

    Those are without mirrors.
    (Your volt is not wider than the S)

    From a tesla's Model S spec page:
    • Width 86.2"
      With mirrors folded 77.3"

    The side mirrors (ears) on the M3 look like they really stick out.

    I know someone with ears like that. Some people think its really cute.

    Any chance of wireless phone charging system added to the center console?

    Don't know, but even if they did, I don't think that would affect the exterior width of the car.
