If you are not a fan of the high-performance M235i, BMW has just revealed the M Performance parts developed for all variants of the 2-Series Coupe. The parts will be available in March 2014 and will add a touch of individual style in a way that expresses motor racing enthusiasm. BMW will also offer the M Performance Power Kit for the 220d Coupe, increasing the output of the 4-cylinder diesel engine by 12 kW/16 bhp to 147 kW/200 bhp and maximum torque by 40 Nm to 420 Nm.

An M Performance silencer system is available for the M235i Coupe, which reduces exhaust gas pressure in order to produce a sports-style sound. Moreover, BMW offers M performance Performance tailpipe trim elements are offered in chrome or carbon, bearing the M logo. For the M235i Coupe, BMW also offers the M Performance limited-slip differential, that ensures traction-optimized distribution of drive torque between the rear wheels.

For all model variants, BMW offers the M Performance sports suspension that includes a lowering of 20 millimetres compared to the standard version, specific dampers and shortened coil springs finished in red, as well as M Performance brake system with brake calipers painted in a choice of red, yellow or orange. The brake calipers are hidden behind the 19-inch forged BMW M Performance light alloy wheels, which are also available in two design versions.

The sporty theme is continued at the interior, where we find the M Performance sports steering wheel in Alcantara/carbon finish with red central marking and Race Display in 12-o’clock position, a gear lever and handbrake handle in carbon and an Alcantara gaiter. The gear knob also has a carbon finish. Other features include a highly sporty and individually designed interior include interior strips in carbon and Alcantara, high-grade steel pedals and a driver footrest in corresponding design.

Looking at the new 2-Series Coupe from BMW, it is clear that it continues to have many of the well-known features of the brand while providing a new interpretation of the classic Coupe elements. Highlighting the individual vehicle concept of this new offering is the combination of the dynamically stretched line, the specific design of the front and rear sections, and the fact that when compared to the BMW 1-Series, the 2-Series Coupe is longer by 11 cm.

BMW revealed that under this new series, the BMW Coupe’s characteristic design elements are now included in the compact segment. As mentioned earlier, the signature features of BMW have indeed undergone a fresh and new twist. A closer look at the design reveals a mix of elegance and sporting ability.

The exterior for example has features that have long played an important role in the brand’s identity and have become part of the compact car class with more purpose than ever, especially with the 2-Series Coupe. The surface design, lines, and even the proportions, have been customized in order to highlight not only the unique look but also the agile driving qualities.

Further, the 2-Series Coupe comes with its very own detailed design language. This allows it to have a strong stand-out position in BMW’s model range. In addition, this ensures that the 2-Series Coupe can easily be set apart from the competition. Indeed, the exterior design of this new range mixes muscular agility with a sporting presence and brings with it that confident elegance.

The interior also has a number of defining elements like the cockpit that has been designed to be driver-focused, a quality customers have long expected from a BMW model. Then there is that modern and light brand of functionality. That this model has a more distinguished design identity is made evident by how much it has progressed compared to the previous version. The 2-Series Coupe symbolizes Sheer Driving Pleasure in a more intense and concentrated form never before seen in the premium compact class.

Supreme sporty flair in M style: BMW M Performance parts for the BMW 2 Series Coupé.

The market launch of the BMW 2 Series Coupé clinches pole position in the premium compact segment. The figure 2 in the model designation stands for supreme sporty flair while the letter M refers to the attractive features available for making a dynamic driving experience even more intensive. As in the case of the BMW M Performance automobile BMW M235i, BMW M Performance parts developed for all variants of the BMW 2 Series Coupé will be available as of the market launch in March 2014. The retrofit components designed in close collaboration with BMW M GmbH in the areas of drivetrain, suspension, aerodynamics and cockpit perceptibly boost driving dynamics as well as underscoring the athletic appearance and sporty interior ambience of the new 2-door model. The product selection forms part of the Original BMW Parts program and enables the driver of a BMW 2 Series Coupé to add a touch of individual style in a way that expresses motor racing enthusiasm.

The BMW M Performance Power Kit available for the BMW 220d Coupé creates perfect starting conditions, increasing the output of the 4-cylinder diesel engine by 12 kW/16 bhp to 147 kW/200 bhp and maximum torque by 40 Nm to 420 Nm. The increased sprint capacity achieved has no impact on fuel consumption and exhaust emission figures. A BMW M Performance silencer system is available for the BMW M235i Coupé which reduces exhaust gas pressure to produce a striking, sports-style sound. In addition BMW M Performance tailpipe trim elements are offered in chrome or carbon, bearing the M logo.

A highlight in the suspension area is the BMW M Performance limited-slip differential available for the BMW M235i Coupé. When the dynamic stability control function DSC is deactivated, the torque-sensitive mechanical limited-slip differential in the rear axle ensures traction-optimised distribution of drive torque between the rear wheels. It reduces the slip that occurs on the wheel with less grip by transferring more drive power to the other wheels using a blocking effect. This converts engine power into forward momentum as effectively as possible so as to be able to accelerate out of a bend even more dynamically, for instance.

Products available for all model variants include the BMW M Performance sports suspension including a lowering of 20 millimetres as compared to the standard version, as well as specific dampers and shortened coil springs finished in red, and the especially light and high-capacity BMW M Performance brake system with brake calipers painted in a choice of red, yellow or orange. 19-inch forged BMW M Performance light alloy wheels are also available in two design versions.

The exterior components created to optimise aerodynamic properties have been developed with characteristic M precision. As a supplement to the M sports package available ex works and in conjunction with the BMW M Performance rear spoiler in carbon there is a BMW M Performance Aerodynamic Kit available for the front apron which has been tailored specifically to this model. The combination of air ducting elements at front and rear guarantees an ideal aerodynamic balance and can be supplemented with a diffuser insert for the rear apron as well as attachments for the side sills. Other individual accents to the outer appearance of the BMW 2 Series Coupé can be added by means of a black decorative grid for the BMW kidney grille, exterior caps in carbon, side sill foils with M Performance inscription and BMW M Performance accent stripes in two colour versions.

An cockpit ambience inspired by motor racing is created by the BMW M Performance sports steering wheel in Alcantara/carbon finish with red central marking and Race Display in 12-o'clock position, a gear lever and handbrake handle in carbon and an Alcantara gaiter. A carbon finish is likewise available for the gear selector switch of the automatic transmission. Other features available for a highly sporty and individually designed interior include interior strips in carbon and Alcantara, high-grade steel pedals and a driver footrest in corresponding design.
