AC Schnitzer Gives G20 3-Series BMW M-Like Looks, Sports Suspension

As promised earlier this year, AC Schnitzer has dropped more tuning parts for the G20 BMW 3-Series.

The German aftermarket specialist is offering styling and performance upgrades for BMW’s premium compact sedan, although customers will have to wait a bit longer for power kits. AC Schnitzer is currently developing powertrain modifications for the 320i, 330i, M340i and 330d.

Until then, customers can choose between a number of other upgrades, including a sports suspension that lowers the ride height by approximately 25 mm (0.98 in) and, according to the tuner, improves handling without affecting ride quality.

A sports suspension usually goes together quite nicely with lighter alloy wheels, and the AC1 rims that are available in 19 and 20 inches and in BiColor or anthracite finish should do the job. The 19-inch rims are shod with 225/40 R19 tires at the front and 255/35 R19 rubber at the rear while the 20-inch alloys are wrapped in 225/35 R20 and 255/30 R20 tires, respectively. For those who only want their 3er to just sit closer to the ground, AC Schnitzer offers a spring kit that lowers the front and rear axles by about 25 mm.

Aerodynamic elements available include a front spoiler and front splitter (both for vehicles equipped with the M aero package) that help improve downforce, side skirts, roof spoiler, and deck lid spoiler. For the 320i, 330i and M340i, AC Schnitzer also offers quad exhaust pipes in Sport Carbon, Sport Chrome or Sport Black finish.

The company also offers subtle interior tweaks such as aluminum paddle shifters, aluminum pedals, aluminum footrest and an aluminum key holder.
