BMW launched and announced its initial M Performance Parts lineup officially at the 2012 Geneva Motorshow. While the now released M Performance Parts official catalog explains much, we took some time to find out some more details for you. Stefan Weiss of the M Performance Parts team was helpful in giving us some further insight.

Please give us a quick overview on the M Performance Parts. What’s the motive for ‘renaming’ the Performance Parts program to M Performance Parts?
M Performance Parts are now available for the new 1 series, 3 series, and 5 series. There are many different product categories like exhaust systems, engine tuning, drivetrain, suspension, and interior/exterior. We develop these parts together with the engineers of M GmbH.

The M Performance Parts party continues. Just minutes after our Live Gallery of the F20 125i equipped with M Performance Parts, BMW has published the full M Performance parts catalog to coincide with its official release/announcement at the 2012 Geneva Motorshow.

M Performance Parts carry the M name because they have been developed together with M engineers for both performance and aesthetics enhancement. This collaboration with M engineers began just last year. This is what sets M Performance Parts apart from what used to be called simply “BMW Performance Parts” (which will be no more going forward).

As of now, M Performance Parts are or will be available for these models:

F10 5-series
F20 1-series
F30 3-serie… CONTINUED

It’s teaser time again. BMW is speeding up their newly founded M Performance division. Some days ago, BMW announced the first M Performance vehicles powered by the triturbo N57 Diesel engine. Now it’s time to put their effort on the smaller cars.

Seen in this video is a teaser for the new lineup of M Performance accessories for the F20 1 series (we expect the F30 to follow shortly). We got a first glimpse at this lineup back at Frankfurt. The interesting parts are still blurred in the video, so expect unique M Performance front and rear bumpers, M Performance Brakes comprising of red calipers, slotted and drilled brake discs, carbon rear view mirrors, interior CF trim (feels incredibly good) and other goodies.

Just to be sure, the … CONTINUED
