In an interview with the UK Car Magazine, BMW chief Norbert Reithofer has confirmed that a range of tii performance options will be launched soon on the company's smaller models. As we have mentioned many times before, there will not be an M1 version, and this information has been confirmed by BMW's CEO as well.
Recently, a BMW Performance Parts catalog has been released by the german automaker, so we have already seen some 1 Series models taking advantage of these higher-end parts.
Of course, everyone must be asking themselves where will BMW position the tii models. Apparently, they will fit somewhere above the regular 1 and 3 series but definitely below the M3 for example.
While we all heard about or seen the 1 Series tii, the big news here is the appearance of a BMW 3 Series tii version. It is already confirmed that a facelifted 3 Series will be launch this fall, but there is likely to be a tii model as well.
The question is: would we see the dual-clutch transmission and the M3's wheels and brakes?
