The once-every-two-year Frankfurt IAA auto show is nearly upon us. Press coverage will begin Tuesday, September 13. Here is a preview of the headline BMW debuts headed for Frankfurt.
BMW has released the first official photos of the F20 1 series Performance Accessories Study. It’s a showcase vehicle used to introduce the new line of BMW Accessories for the 2012 F20 1 series. No official details yet describing all the parts fitted, but clearly seen are: BMW Performance front and rear bumpers/diffuser which are more aggressively styled than the F20 M-Sport front bumper, sideskirts, black grilles, carbon fiber mirror covers, performance stripes, 19″ Performance wheels, and BMW Performance brakes.
The interior features BMW performance steering wheel (alcantara/carbon fiber), alcantara trim, pedals, floor mats, shift knob and boot.
We also wouldn’t be surprised if this car also had some factory engine tuning or performance enhancements. Stay tuned for more info before or at the Frankfurt IAA where the … CONTINUED

A new BMW 2 series coupe render has been posted, courtesy of Autoexpress. Although this render may give us an idea as to the general shape, size, and proportions, the BMW 2-series coupe is expected to have a significantly different look (particularly the front end) than the F20 1-series hatchback upon which this render is clearly based.

Today, we’re happy to share the first photos of the final car, the “BMW Performance Studie 1-series”. BMW apparently showed this car during their dealer presentation taking place in Frankfurt, and three shots magically made it to our inbox. You can see the Performance front and rear bumpers which appear to be even more aggressively styled than the F20 M-Sport front bumper. Also present are the ‘love em or hate em’ performance stripes and a new Performance wheel in what looks like 19″ size. We wouldn’t be suprised if this car also had some kind of factory … CONTINUED
