BMW Canada releases a video showcasing M Performance Parts for the new F30 BMW 3 Series Sedan. This new line of accessories provides a distinctive, sporty character to further enhance driving dynamics. BMW M Performance Parts have been developed in close collaboration with M division. Each component goes through an intensive development and manufacturing process which results in uncompromised performance. Exclusive chassis, aerodynamic, cockpit and powertrain components are now available for the 3 Series.
A new 20” forged alloy wheel set (style # 405M) is offered by BMW M Performance for the new for 2012 BMW 3 Series Sedan (F30). These wheels are produced using a special forging process that reduces weight by 1 kg (2.4 lbs.) per wheel when compared to a similar size wheel. This reduction in unsprung mass helps improve steering response and handling characteristics.
To accent the 20” wheels and to improve braking performance, a Brembo big-brake kit with painted calipers is now available. The upgrade consists of 4-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the front axle and a 2-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the rear axle. Improved thermal resistance is provided by the larger, internally-vented, lightweight-construction sports brake discs measuring 370 x 30 mm (diameter x thickness) on the front axle and 345 x 24 mm on the rear axle. These cross-drilled and grooved brake discs also reduce water film build-up between the brake lining and the disc surface during wet driving conditions. Painted caliper colors include M Performance Red, Yellow or Orange, any of which contrast nicely with the 20 inch wheels.
High-gloss black kidney grilles are available to create a sporty, menacing character for the 3 Series. Drivers of the 3 Series can personalize the exterior of their vehicle even further with BMW M Performance Sport stripes. These stripes are printed on high-quality PVC film and are available in black or white.
BMW M Performance carbon fiber mirror caps are also available. These mirror caps are handmade with minute attention to detail and are clear-coated to protect them from harmful UV rays. To complement the carbon fiber mirror caps, a carbon fiber rear deck lid spoiler is available for the 5 Series to provide improved vehicle stability and driving dynamics.
For the interior, BMW Performance has concentrated on the driver-machine interface, by creating a new Motorsport-derived steering wheel for the 3 Series Sedan. BMW M Performance has made available a seven piece carbon fiber and Alcantara interior trim set inspired by the world of Motorsport.
A BMW M Performance carbon fiber gear shift knob and selector lever is available for vehicles with manual or automatic transmissions.
Let’s have a look.
