Shoehorning the M4’s engine into the 2 Series coupe has left the new BMW M2 Competition wanting for very little. But for those looking to take theirs even further, the Bavarian automaker has released a series of M Performance Parts.
The range of accessories promisingly starts with an even more hardcore suspension package. The coil-over springs lower the ride height an extra 20 millimeters (0.78 inches). It also includes adjustable dampers and rebound settings to help the most performance-obsessed of drivers get just what they want out of Munich’s new pocket rocket.
The suspension package also brings new brakes with six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers painted in red. In conjunction with a fresh set of 19-inch wheels, they help reduce unsprung weight by an extra 3.2 kilograms (7 pounds). And those wheels can be fitted with semi-slick Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
There’s a new onboard telemetry system on offer as well, which networks between a USB stick and a dedicated app. But most of the rest of the catalog is made up of carbon fiber.
The hood, roof, and trunk lid can all be replaced with carbon versions, and the hood even includes a bigger power bulge. Of course there’s the requisite aero kit as well, including new front splitter, side skirts, rear diffusor, rear lip spoiler, and rear wing – all made of the lightweight woven material.
Not enough carbon? The grilles, vents, mirror caps, door sills, and engine cover can also be replaced with more carbon-fiber components. And the interior can be ordered with a new steering wheel – complete with integrated Race Display – along with metal pedals and a smattering of more Alcantara and carbon-fiber trim.
