BMW M Performance does not hesitate and only hours after the introduction of the new 1 Series F40 presents the first tuning parts for the compact front-wheel drive. In the first photos we see the tuning accessories developed in Munich on the top model BMW M135i xDrive, which, unlike the basic models, is always equipped with all-wheel drive.
The sporty accessories for retrofitting are staged as usual on a white vehicle, so the dark add-on parts come into their own. The basis for many components is the M Sport package, which is known to be the basis for the design of the M135i. Most of the tuning parts for the exterior are available both in high-gloss black and in a new carbon look.
For the front of the BMW 1 Series F40, the M Performance program has a front splitter, aero flicks and the M kidneys in mesh design. You read that correctly: The kidney-shaped design of the top model is apparently available for retrofitting, i.e. regardless of the engine. The sides can be upgraded with exterior mirror caps, alternative side sill inserts and a film. A diffuser insert made of carbon and a roof spoiler with air flow can be ordered for a dynamic finish.
The range of rims from BMW M Performance begins with the 18-inch rims Y-spoke 554 M in Jet Black and the 18-inch Y-spoke 711 M in Ferric Gray. To top it off, the 19-inch double-spoke 555 M rim with two-tone paintwork is used.
The M Performance sports brake in 18-inch format promises measurably shorter braking distances, with red-painted brake calipers also adding visual accents. At the front, 4-piston fixed calipers grasp larger, internally ventilated and perforated brake discs, while 1-piston floating calipers and lightweight brake discs are used on the rear axle.
In the cockpit, the focus is on the M Performance steering wheel with a red 12 o’clock marking, Alcantara in the grip area and gray contrasting stitching. The steering wheel cover is both in carbon & Alcantara as well as carbon & Leather available. Shift paddles made of carbon are also available for vehicles with automatic transmissions. The LED door projectors provide a special indication of the sporty requirement every time you get in and out; in addition to the M logo, other motifs are also available.
