BMW Wastes No Time Revealing New 1-Series M Performance Parts

Less than 24 hours after the unveiling of the new generation 1-Series, BMW went ahead and released a catalogue of M Performance parts for their first front-wheel drive compact hatch (the 2-Series AC / GT are technically considered MPVs).

Available right after the car launches in the market towards the end of the year, the accessories won’t make the new German compact hatchback any faster, though some upgrades will help it stop quicker. In particular, the new sports braking system with 18-inch, inner-vented and perforated discs and 4-piston aluminum fixed calipers at the front, and single-piston floating caliper at the back, all finished in red.

Of course, there will be a comprehensive suit of aerodynamic parts made from carbon fiber (CF), all of which were developed in a wind tunnel. These include a front splitter, rear spoiler, aero flicks, side sill inserts and rear diffuser, while you can also add CF mirror caps too. The kidney grille can also be upgraded with a mesh design, while the side lettering comes in Frozen black and you can add multicolored graphic prints too.

Elsewhere, the catalogue offers 18-inch forged summer wheels in a Y-spoke pattern in Jet Black or bigger 19-inch rim in a dual tone finish. If you prefer winter tires, these can be combined with 18″ wheels in Ferric Grey with a Y-spoke pattern and can be used with snow chains. They too can be combined with the M Performance brakes. BMW also recommends purchasing the optional wheel bags.

The M Performance steering wheel is the only major upgrade inside. It gets Alcantara grip area, large thumbrest, silver-grey, hand-sewn cross-stitching and red 12 o’clock marking. Additionally, customers can enhance it with a choice of carbon fiber/Alcantara or carbon fiber/leather, and these options also bring the 6 o’clock detail with the M Performance inscription.

Cars equipped with the Steptronic sports transmission can be fitted with carbon fiber paddle shifters. Finally, a set of exclusive velvet velour floor mats and the door projectors, with three different motives, complete the offering.
