Bmw M Performance announces power upgrade for 2.0-litre diesel engine

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 18, 2012

BMW will be revealing new developments from its recently established M-Performance range, one of which is an optional power upgrade for its 2.0-litre four-cylinder common rail diesel engine. BMW will announce the complete details at the Paris Motor Show. The engine upgrade, which will be offered on the 120d, 320d and 520d, adds a bigger intercooler and remapped software together with other modifications, increasing the output of the in-demand diesel engine from a standard 181bhp and 280lb ft of torque to 197bhp and 310lb ft.

BMW hasn’t discussed yet just how much the performance gains are for the so-called BMW M Performance Power Kit. What we learned so far is that this makes sprinting from 0-62mph in certain models faster by 1.0sec. It also won’t result to an increase in combined cycle fuel consumption or CO2 emissions.

As a factory-offered option, the existing warranty terms and conditions stay valid. On the other hand, BMW aims to demonstrate a lineup of optional M Performance aerodynamic components at the Paris motor show.
