As we have all witnessed with the release of the F10 M5, FXX M6, and now the F80/F82 M3/M4, BMW is continuing to push for more extroverted styling with the production M cars. For a BMW tuner this means that designing a piece, whether it is an exhaust system or front lip, requires a more sophisticated approach.
