The M235i M Performance Parts comes with the full M Performance Aerodynamics kit – M Performance rear diffuser, Black kidney grills and carbon fiber front splitter, M Performance Side Skirts with branding, M Performance Exhaust System, Carbon Mirror Caps – and segment exclusive 19” wheels for the M235i.
For the first time, an optional BMW M Performance limited-slip differential is available for the BMW M235i Coupe. BMW M Performance sports suspension is offered including a lowering of 20 millimeters as compared to the standard version.
Other upgrades include specific dampers and shortened coil springs finished in red, and the especially light and high-capacity BMW M Performance brake system with brake calipers painted in a choice of red, yellow or orange. 19-inch forged BMW M Performance light alloy wheels are also available in two design versions.
An cockpit ambience inspired by motor racing is created by the BMW M Performance sports steering wheel in Alcantara/carbon finish with red central marking and Race Display in 12-o’clock position, a gear lever and handbrake handle in carbon and an Alcantara gaiter.
A carbon finish is likewise available for the gear selector switch of the automatic transmission. Other features available for a highly sporty and individually designed interior include interior strips in carbon and Alcantara, high-grade steel pedals and a driver footrest in corresponding design.
