Tommy Milner, ex-BMW Rahal Letterman racing driver and Eric Riehle, BMWNA Performance Development Manager, sit down to talk about BMW’s Performance Parts program and its offerings.
Milner and Riehle begin talking about the incredible sound produced by the BMW Performance Exhaust, moving next onto explaining the benefits and power gains of BMW’s very own tuning kit, and ending with the advantages of the BMW Performance Suspensions.
