BMW Decks Out The New M2 Competition With More M Performance Parts

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.

Add Lightness

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.

    Another manufacturer that became a soulless ghoul trying to squeeze as much money as possible from as much rich people as possible. Disgusting…

    • LWOAP

      If people weren’t buying these things then they wouldn’t do it. Besides, it’s not like rich people are hurting for money.

      • ace_9

        Yes, but making limited editions of cars specifically to milk rich people is not attractive for me. They simply want to make cars to be stored in a garage in some oil country waiting to be sold in the future auction for some insane price. First they ruined M3 (3 series overall in fact) by making it too big, heavy and expensive and now they are doing the same with M2 (1 and 2 series), just because they want to sell it for as much as possible and to justify the price, they fill it with junk and they still pretend it’s an ultimate driving machine…

          Lol bro it’s n m2 not a Ferrari. Oil country hahaha. No ones forcing you to buy anything

    It cheapens the car to dump all that cosmetic crap on it. Brakes-suspension-aerodynamics, sure.

    • Jay

      Yeah some of their cosmetic extras are overkill now. Sometimes they work if subtle but stickers aren’t great. All the Germans are guilty of this now. It used to be like 1 tier of enhancement now you have to buy a second on top of the first for some parts
