German tuner AC Schnitzer has unveiled today their tuning kit for the G20 BMW 3 Series. The 3 Series will soon be powered by performance upgrades, including a 3-year warranty. Performance upgrades are currently under development for the 320i, 330i, the M340i and the 330d. If you like you can also upgrade the engine compartment with the optional engine optics.
The AC Schnitzer sports rear silencer has two exhaust tailpipes on each side for the 320i, 330i and M340i. You can choose from “Sport Carbon”, “Sport Chrome” or “Sport Black” tailpipes.
The AC Schnitzer sports suspension has a lowering of approximately 25 mm and overall is said to be much smoother. An AC Schnitzer suspension spring kit, which also lowers the front and rear axles by approx. 25 mm compared to the standard suspension, is also available as an optical solution with a lowering of the center of gravity.
Styling wise, the AC Schnitzer G20 3 Series features front spoiler elements and splitter (both for vehicles with M aerodynamics package) improving the downforce of the 3 series on the road.
AC Schnitzer side skirts (for vehicles with M aerodynamic package), AC Schnitzer roof rear spoiler and AC Schnitzer rear spoiler are available for further increase of downforce. There is also a AC Schnitzer rear skirt protection foil and decals (400 mm, left – right).
As always, the AC Schnitzer wheels offer weight savings and are offered in different configurations: AC1 alloy wheels BiColor or anthracite (all round: 8.5J x 19″ with a maximum tyre size of 225/40 R 19 at the front and 255/35 R 19 at the rear). AC1 alloy wheels BiColor or anthracite are also available in 20 inches (all round: 8.5J x 20″ with 225/35 R 20 tires or 255/30 R 20 rear axle).
For those looking to set their cars apart a bit inside as well, AC Schnitzer has a couple of add-ons for the cabins as well. You can order the AC Schnitzer aluminum shifting paddles set, aluminum pedals, aluminum footrest and aluminum keyholder.
The tuner is promising to have an upgrade for four models in the near future: the 320i, 330i, the M340i and the 330d. The M340i is probably going to have power levels rivaling the current M3 and M4 models once AC Schnitzer is done with it.
