Press Release: BMW of North America has announced three BMW Performance aerodynamic accessories for the M3 Coupe, Sedan, and Convertible. The new rear deck lid spoiler, mirror caps, and front splitters are constructed of ultra-rigid carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) composite material, matching the standard CFRP roof panel of the M3 Coupe.

Each component is shaped based on advanced research conducted in one of BMW’s Munich-based wind tunnels. This ensures compatibility with the overall aerodynamic “signature” of the M3, serving to reduce lift and minimize drag. Such characteristics are appropriate to enhance the vehicle’s high-speed stability while maintaining fuel efficiency.

Like the CFRP roof panels on the M3 Coupe and M6 Coupe, BMW Performance components made of carbon fiber have been climate and durability tested during development to ensure long-term quality. Each component is finished in a special clear coat laminate to reflect ultraviolet radiation.

BMW Performance accessories feature a 2-year / unlimited mileage warranty. If installed before a customer takes delivery of a new M3, the BMW Performance accessories will share coverage of the 4-year / 50,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The new BMW Performance aerodynamic accessories are going on sale this month at Authorized BMW Centers.

    I’m not sure carbon is light enough for these non-structural parts. They really ought to be machined from solid beryllium.

  2. MACK says:

    Hey for 60k shouldn’t these be on the M3 already

  3. samon says:

    these carbon fiber parts should be standard on all M3’s just like the roof. A loaded M3 is about 77k and is the flagship M model, yet is filled with heavy steel. the M3 being labeled a “discounted supercar” is rubbish. The parts should be standard on all M3’s not nickel and dimed out for thousands more to base price.

    M6 is a flagship M model M3 is a bare-bone. M5 is a middle child.
    but yes these pieces should be part of an M3. The car is still a porky pig
    even with these parts on, but at least a little better looking :-)

    if the E92 M3 would weight the same as the E36 M3…. oh man, it would be a delight !
