A BMW 3 Series and 5 Series models with M Performance Parts, and racing stripes (for the 3er) were spotted during EuroFest at the BMW Performance Center in South Carolina. Spy photographer Palbay managed to snap some shots of these vehicles that we have only so far seen doing their rounds at auto shows around the world.

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. Exclusive chassis, aerodynamic, cockpit and powertrain components are made available for the 3 Series and 5 Series.

As seen in the shots below, the 3 Series use a new 20” forged alloy wheel set (style # 405M). 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.

To accent the 20” wheels and to improve braking performance, a Brembo big-brake kit with painted calipers was fitted to the car as well.

High-gloss black kidney grilles are available to give the F30 sedan a sportier look. 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. To complement the carbon fiber mirror caps, a carbon fiber rear deck lid spoiler was installed on both these 3 and 5 Series models. Other upgrades include a front lip spoiler made out of carbon fiber as well.

Let’s have a look.
