BMW has released the latest M Performance stripes catalog for the 1M coupe, M3, M5, M6, F30 and E92/E93.
AC Schnitzer tunes the M135i hatchback to 360 HP. The extra power drops the 0-100kmh (0-62mph) time from 4.9 seconds to 4.7 seconds and the 80-180kmh time from 12.9 seconds to 10.8 seconds.
Here’s a video demo.
The BMW M235i coupe continues testing on the Nurburgring, this time in Valencia Orange. While this prototype remains in the same level of camouflage as previously sighted prototypes, it does give us a glimpse at the M235i’s front end design.
What the M235i reveals through the heavy front end camo are large air intake vents with fins like those featured on the M6 and spied on the upcoming M3/M4. You can also see the bottom of the bumper’s splitters poking out below the camouflage. These seem … CONTINUED

We give you the first clear look at the interior of the F22 BMW 2 Series (M235i) coupe. As the 2 Series lineup is based off the current F20/F21 1 Series hatchbacks, it comes as no surprise that the interiors are nearly identical.
As this is the M235i (there will be no regular 235i), we see all the M Sport bits fitted from the M135i hatchback, including alcantara sports seats (with hexagonal pattern and blue contrast stitching), aluminum dash trim and door handles with hexagon texture, … CONTINUED
