BMW tuning specialist AC Schnitzer now provides even more uniqueness with a comprehensive range for the latest generation BMW X3.

The AC Schnitzer performance upgrades, including a 36-month assembly guarantee, which increases the output of the X3 xDrive20d from 140 kW/190 hp to 163 kW/222 hp and the 30d version from 195 kW/265 hp to 232 kW/315 hp, ensure that the vehicle stands out from the crowd. Whether with or without increased performance, the engine optics with AC Schnitzer lettering is available for all models.

To keep the X3 by AC Schnitzer agile but down-to-earth, the Aachen engineers rely on a suspension spring set for optimum coordination between sportiness and driving comfort. This lowers the X3 by 20 – 25 mm compared to the standard chassis.


The aerodynamic kit for the new X3 includes striking front spoiler elements (for cars with M-Technik) and a rear roof wing. Both are made of high-quality PU and ensure – especially in combination – improved downforce values on the axles. The AC Schnitzer rear skirt protection foil for the rear apron completes the aerodynamics range.

The various AC Schnitzer tailpipe trims add the finishing touch to the X3. The range includes “Sport Carbon” tailpipes and “Sport” tailpipes in chrome and “Sport”.

AC Schnitzer aluminum accessories are available for sports car flair inside: the aluminum cover for the BMW iDrive system controller, an aluminum pedals and the aluminum keyholder make the X3 equipped in this way finally unmistakable.

The tuning specialists from Aachen also find this and equip the X3 with AC1 alloy wheels in BiColor or Anthracite in 19″ or 20″. The Type VIII Lightweight Forged Wheels in BiColor are even bigger, even realizing 21″ sizes.
