There are only three things that are certain in life: death, taxes, and BMW releasing M Performance Parts kit for all of their new models. Following the launch of the all-new BMW 2 Series Coupe, the German carmaker has now unveiled a barrage of M Performance Parts for the 2-er Coupe, just like clockwork.
It’s not quite the M2 yet, but the M Performance Parts does certainly up the aggression of the 2-er Coupe by quite some margin – that’s if you can look past the car’s original styling. And with the M240i variant, you at least get a pretty respectable performance to pair with the mad looks.
On the outside, the M Performance Parts include a slew of carbon fibre bits, such as the kidney grille trim, front splitter, a set of side skirts with winglets near the rear wheel well, a ducktail spoiler at the back, and a diffuser-like trim for the rear bumpers.
You can also opt for carbon fibre wing mirror covers, of which there are two: a regular one, or one that’s styled like the proper M cars. Finishing off the exterior appointments are the decals on the bonnet and sides, plus three wheel options – two 20-inch, and one 18-inch.
Inside, the M Performance Parts kit for the BMW 2 Series Coupe includes an M Performance steering wheel with Alcantara grips, gearshift paddles in carbon fibre, carbon fibre trims on the dashboard and seat backs, a new M Performance Alcantara armrest, and even cute little M Performance door locks.
There’s also the door-mounted puddle lights with two different M designs, plus M Performance badging littered throughout the entire interior. But the highlight here, we think, has to be the M Performance seats, with extra bolsters on the sides and shoulders, and Alcantara fabric down the entire seat back.
BMW has yet to release pricing details for the M Performance parts, but just like that of the 2 Series Gran Coupe, they’ll likely prove quite popular among buyers when it makes its way here.
Don’t expect them to be cheap, though, as they’re made out of honest-to-god carbon fibre, after all. And hey, at least they’re not as in-your-face as the M4’s kit…
