At the Geneva Motor Show, BMW introduced the F20 125i M Performance vehicle designed in close collaboration with BMW M in the areas of powertrain, suspension, aerodynamics and cockpit.

The BMW 125i Hatchback showcased at the BMW stand in Geneva takes advantage of a BMW M Performance aerodynamic package with 19-inch BMW M Performance light alloy wheels, a BMW M Performance brake system and BMW M Performance Top Stripes.

In a new video released by BMW, the company explains the process that takes place behind the scene before the M Performance car comes to market. The focus of this video is primarily on the design of exterior and interior components, as well as the M Performance exhaust system and upgraded braking system.

Interesting is the fact that the M Performance Parts are also tested in the wind tunnel for optimized performance.

The video is in German, but BMW provides English subtitles.

    of course its tested.  its more important to test that then the standard item. If a performance bumper does not generate downforce, but lift, then it would be horrible to use it at higher speeds. M models are often driven to their limit while standard BMW models are very seldom tested to their maximum limit (lower then M but still high)

    M parts are also has to meet the  TUV specs, otherwise even as parts, they would not be able to sell in Germany and much of Europe.
