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.

New BMW Performance Parts have hit the web as seen in these photos. 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. Very slick!

For those not familiar with BMW Performance, its a new range of products in the BMW lineup meant to compete with the aftermarket and offer sporty upgrades to the standard range of BMW cars. The products are supposed to bridge the gap between stock car and ///M car.

BMW Performance is seemingly going all out with the X6, promising to offer upgrades to the drivetrain, suspension, aerodynamics and cockpit.
