Hamann is offering kit for BMW 3-Series Touring (F31)

Article by Anita Panait, on November 29, 2014

German tuner Hamann surely knows what products to offer. Typically, Hamann would have been seen offering kits for BMW’s more expensive models, and the company still does. What may come as a shock to many is that Hamann is also looking to offer kits to less expensive and also less known BMW products like the F31 3 Series Touring.

The kit, while decent looking, definitely changes the vehicle’s appearance not only on the front but also on the rear. It may be surprising to see Hamann offer such a kit on such a model, but the fact is that not all people are driving sedans, and quite a number of drivers are into wagons.

In terms of practicality, wagons, touring and estates definitely have the edge against sedans, but may not be the sole reason why some people love Touring models. For these wagon-lovers, these vehicles look much better than the other types.

While people consider wagons as family cars, some don’t. Well, one of the reasons is that wagons could be more than just a family car. For instance, a BMW 335d xDrive Touring car offers 313 HP and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque and could accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds – figures that already allow a driver to go drag racing.

Now with Hamann offering kits for BMW Touring models, wagon enthusiasts now have more reasons to show off their vehicles. In fact, the Hamann kit includes new aero parts, a new suspension and alloys. The aero parts include a front spoiler and a new diffuser on the rear.

Available for F31 3 Series Touring are various edition of wheels in various colors, like the EVO anniversary and the Edition race.

The kit will have the Touring’s ride height lowered by up to 30 mm. Hamman customers could also avail of a new ECU map and new exhaust, which has four optional tips to choose from. Likewise, customers can have a new ECU for every model, starting from the 316d version.
