BMW has released an M Performance Power Kit for the F20 125i with N20B20 engine.

It’s price at 899-999 euro /

To say that the BMW F20/F21 1 Series front end styling is polarizing would be an understatement. Initial reaction to the BMW 2 Series front styling, revealed last month in our spy photos, have generally been more favorable.

All of which begs the question – how would the F20/F21 look with all or some of the 2 Series’ front end styling? And might the renders below preview what the F20/F21 LCI facelift may resemble?

The M135i hatchback will soon receive a sibling in the BMW lineup by way of the M235i coupe. They will share the same heart – the N55 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine making approximately 315-320hp, as well as the same transmission and other mechanicals. On paper, the two should achieve similar performance numbers, with a slight edge potentially going to the M235i coupe.

So organised primarily by TMP, and some collaborative route planning we took on the welsh valleys last weekend.

With a few late additions and drop-outs we managed to assemble a total of seven cars, 5 F20 M135is, and one each F21 M135i and E82 135i. In an unlikely coincidence that resulted in 2 Estoril Blue, 2 Glacier … CONTINUED
