German tuner AC Schnitzer has released its kit for the latest iteration of BMW 3 Series. What do you make of the looks?
The German tuner has started rolling out its visual upgrades for the BMW 3 Series. While customers will have to wait a bit more for the eventual power upgrades, we get a good look at what the aftermarket specialist has achieved with the 3 Series. We understand that AC Schnitzer is working on adding some more horses to the 320i, 330i, M340i xDrive and the 330d.
What you see here then is not just a 3 Series with a bodykit. There's a sportier suspension which lowers the car's ride height by 25 mm and AC Schnitzer claims the handling is improved without negatively affecting the ride quality. How striking are the wheels though? These AC1 alloy wheels are available in 19 and 20 inch, as well 2 choices of colour. The aero kit you see range from the front splitter and front spoiler, which the tuner claims improves downforce, to the roof spoiler and boot spoiler. Rounding off the package are tasteful side skirts.
For those wanting even more, AC Schnitzer will fit quad exhaust pipes in either Sport Carbon, Sport Chrome or Sport Black finish. Inside, the cabin receives aluminium gearshift paddles, aluminium pedals, aluminium footrest and a key holder, in yes you guessed it, aluminium. AC Schnitzer components are available in SA at selected BMW dealerships.
