Article by Anita Panait, on May 7, 2012

German automaker BMW has opened up its M Performance Parts catalogue to the new 3- and 5-series, offering components and improvement for the vehicles. Customers will have a chance to improve the chassis and brakes for the 2012 3-series and the 2011-12 5-series. Also offered are aerodynamic upgrades and exhaust improvements. 

For starters, the company is offering for the 3-series a 20-inch forged-alloy wheel set, the unsprung weight of which is reduced by 2.4 pounds per wheel. According to BMW, this helps improve steering response and handling qualities of the vehicles in the series. The company is also offering a similar set for the 5-series. Both sets are finished with high gloss and low gloss touches and are bearing the BMW M logo.

BMW is also offering Brembo big brake kit with a choice of colored calipers. The brake kit includes four-piston fronts and two-piston rear calipers with improved thermal resistance from cross-drilled, vented rotors. Available colors include red, yellow and orange. BMW also offers exterior improvement packages for both the 3-series and 5-series. Both ranges could be endowed with high-gloss black kidney grilles and carbon-fiber mirror caps.

BMW offers M Performance sport stripes printed on PVC film in black or white for the 3-series and a carbon-fiber spoiler for the 5-series only. The inside of M Performance equipment, including a shift knob and trim set, also carry the carbon motif.

BMW also offers an M Performance Alcantara steering wheel with a flat bottom and a red stripe. Meanwhile, BMW is set to offer in June a stainless-steel exhaust system for the 335i and 535i sedans. The exhaust system features two chrome-plated exhaust tips with the BMW M logo.
