BMW M Performance Treatment Applied to 8 GC, 3 Touring and X1

BMW 3 Series Touring With M Performance Parts 12

The options and customisation of BMW's M Performance Parts have been rolled out to even more of the Munich-based manufacturer's products.

BMW's M Performance Parts catalogue has to be one of the most comprehensive of its kind and there's pretty much everything and anything to make your BMW different. Now its the turn of the BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe, BMW 3 Series Touring and BMW X1 LCI to receive some goodies. 

BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe

Did a car this striking even need some visual upgrades? Some would argue no, it's already very pretty. However, for those wanting more, you can get an M Performance carbon fibre front grille, side grille and mirror caps. There are also some gorgeous 20-inch M Performance forged wheels and a brake upgrade. Inside, the M Performance steering wheel features Alcantara grips and carbon fibre shift paddles.

BMW 3 Series Touring

While the Touring/estate model of the new BMW 3 Series is not on sale in South Africa, you can still admire what M Performance has done to it. There are carbon fibre wings, a neat rear diffuser, and some gloss black detailing. A nice touch is the M Performance decals on the side sills and of course you can get uprated alloy wheels. For the 3 Series Touring, you can get these tasty 18-inch M Performance light alloy wheels, which also come with nice wheel bags. For the cabin, look no further than the M Performance Alcantara-equipped steering wheel.


The recently facelifted BMW X1 has also received some upgrades. Again, carbon fibre mirror caps and an M front grille in gloss black. There are also these striking 20-inch alloy wheels, but these are marketed as summer wheels and taking them offroad is probably not a good idea. The cabin of the BMW X1 also has the option of the M Performance steering wheel, M-branded floor mats as well as an M Performance key holder.
