At the International Media Launch of the new BMW 1 Series Hatchback, the designers and engineers in Munich also presented an additional model – an M135i xDrive decked out with the latest M Performance Parts. Soon after the market launch of the new BMW 1 Series, an extensive range of exclusive M Performance Parts is available that will enhance the car’s sporty appearance and dynamic potential. In addition, the parts also meet functional requirements in terms of lightweight construction and aerodynamics.

The 1 Series shown here features a carbon pressed front splitter, as well as horizontal-flow rear spoiler and the aero flicks in high-gloss black optimize aerodynamics. There are also high-gloss black side sill inserts and the rear diffuser is also made of pressed carbon fiber.
Other M Performance parts offered for the 1 Series are the exterior mirror caps and the new M kidney grille with mesh design as a retrofitting solution.
In the performance department, BMW has decided to offer an 18-inch M Performance sports brake system. The brake’s calipers are finished in red, for that additional sporty visuals. As compared to the standard brake system, the front axle has larger inner-vented, perforated discs in lightweight design which are powerfully gripped by 4-piston fixed calipers. The amply sized calipers are made of a aluminum alloy so as to save weight. The rear axle features matching lightweight construction brake discs with single-piston floating caliper.
Matching the sports brake, BMW offers the high-quality M Performance forged wheel Y-Spoke 554M in an 18-inch format.
Inside, BMW has added the M Performance steering wheel with Alcantara grip area. In addition, visual accentuations are provided by the red marking at the 12 o’clock position and the silver-grey hand-sewn cross-stitching.
There is an additional option for vehicles with Steptronic sports transmission: high-quality M Performance carbon fibre shift paddles can be selected to further enhance the motor racing atmosphere in the cockpit.
The M Performance Parts are available from market launch which starts at the end of September 2019.
