Directly from BMW’s state-of-the-art Munich wind tunnel comes the comprehensive new BMW Performance Aero Kit for the 2011 X5 (excluding X5 M and models equipped with trailer hitch). The Aero Kit, which includes … CONTINUED
This video should be 10 minutes of pure joy for carbon fiber fanatics to witness. It features BMW’s new CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) manufacturing plant and many steps of the carbon fiber parts production process. CF will be used extensively in BMW’s future Megacity electric vehicle due in 2013 and is currently used as roof material for some M cars.
The Megacity’s construction will be of a body-on-frame. The lower half is the “drive” module — an aluminum chassis that melds the battery, electric … CONTINUED
There is no 1-series GTS, but Parkview BMW has put together its own version. They started off with the hot Fire Orange color from the M3 GTS and complimented it with a full array of 1-series BMW Performance Parts. The GTS logos are a bit much for us, but the overall result is a hot little coupe we’d love to see BMW actually produce.
The M Performance Exhaust for the E90/E92 M3 has been a hotly anticipated product and we bring you the first sound clips of it (paired with photos we took of the exhaust system from the Paris Motor Show). Specs can also be found after the jump.
We’ve updated our 335i LCI Performance Parts gallery with a new HD walk around video, take a look!
The BMW 3-Series coupe with BMW Performance part is nothing new, but this particular model happens to be the LCI (“facelift”) BMW 3-Series Coupe and as far as I can tell, the first time i’ve seen this car live at an autoshow! Enjoy.
We are having a blast @ the 2010 International autoshow in Paris. Next up are photos of a Frozen Black Matte M3 Coupe with exclusive M Performance Parts, that was nicely tucked away in a special M booth.
BMW Performance parts for both the BMW X5 and X6 have been out now for some time, with a few scant images distributed around the internet. In fact, to date, the best photos have been the ones captured live @ autoshows (check out our autoshow coverage of the geneva show where we were lucky enough to get some great alone time with the car), but now BMW has updated us with some new photos at some great angles and in high resolutions!
Here are the first clips we’ve seen of the BMW Performance Exhaust matched to a N55 motor and it sounds terrific! N55 BMWs come from the factory with a throatier exhaust than the N54 due to the absence of two mid cats. Paired with a Performance Exhaust, the N55′s growl is amplified beautifully.
BMW has released an updated BMW Performance promo video, now also featuring the X6 and X5. The original clip featuring just the E90 3-series and E82 1-series portion of this video was released back in November 2008.

BMWNA has announced the availability of 3 BMW performance carbon fiber M3 aerodynamic parts at authorized BMW parts dealers – rear deck lid spoiler, mirror caps, and front splitters. Every part is functional, based wind tunnel testing, and serve to reduce lift and minimize drag.
BMW Performance parts for the X5 and X6 were recently released at the Geneva Autoshow last month. Until now all we had to work on were the live shots taken @ the autoshow itself. Now it seems, BMW is putting out the official wallpapers and photos to go along with more information about these cars and available accesories.
We will update this thread as higher resolution photos become available.

Seen here are carbon fiber mirrors, rear deck spoiler, rear diffuser, and front bumper lip for the E92 coupe M-sport bumper and 335is coupe, and two new alcantara wrapped steering wheels – one with track time display and shift lights.
