Munich. The three latest additions to the BMW X model
family, the BMW X2 (combined fuel consumption: 6.2-4.5 l/100 km;
combined CO2 emissions: 142–119 g/km)*, the BMW X3 (combined fuel
consumption: 8.4-5.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 193–140 g/km)*
and the BMW X4 (combined fuel consumption: 7.3-5.4 l/100 km; combined
CO2 emissions: 173–142 g/km)*, combine a sporty, elegant appearance
with outstanding driving dynamics properties. Thanks to the extensive
range of M Performance Parts from the program of Original BMW
Accessories, each of these product features can be adapted to the
owner’s personal taste and given greater emphasis.
Development of M Performance Parts always draws on the vast racing
expertise of BMW M GmbH. All components are perfectly matched – both
with each other and with the specific properties of each model. In
addition to accentuating interior and exterior design, many of the
M Performance Parts also meet functional criteria and enhance
lightweight construction, for example.
Refined looks based on details inspired by motor racing.
M Performance lettering is one particularly effective way of
creating a visual highlight. Designed to ensure an ideal match with
the model in question, the side lettering in Frozen Black underscores
the sporty character of the vehicle, in particular emphasising the
dynamic proportions of the body. In addition to the side lettering,
the appearance of the BMW X3 and BMW X4 can be further refined with
the front lettering in high-gloss black – matching the other front
attachment parts for these two models, which also feature a high-gloss
finish. M Performance front radiator grilles in high-gloss black are
available for the BMW X2. These have the same geometry as the standard
grilles but are much more visually striking, thereby underscoring the
vehicle’s sporty flair and dynamic performance.
The M Performance exterior mirror caps in carbon fibre are another
eye-catcher available for all three series. They are crafted
elaborately by hand from carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). With
several coating layers and finished with a high-gloss polish, the
carbon fibre caps have a depth effect which gives them a compelling appearance.
Sporty, elegant refinement on the inside.
The interior of the BMW X2, BMW X3 and BMW X4 can also be
enhanced for additional sporty flair by means of select details, while
at the same time increasing feel-good comfort on board. The M
Performance floor mats are a potential contributing factor here. They
are made of velour velvet with a leather-look surround and contrasting
decorative seams. Their soft material makes them especially gentle on
shoe heels. The front mats for driver and passenger bear the M
The M Performance steering wheel ensures the driver of a BMW X2, BMW
X3 or BMW X4 retains a perfect grip on everything. It has distinct,
specially lined grip areas which are covered with Alcantara. This
microfibre fabric similar to suede is exceptionally pleasant to the
touch in all temperatures and provides an optimum hold. The upper and
lower part of the steering wheel are also covered in high-quality
leather, as is the accompanying steering wheel trim panel. A red
motorsports marking in the 12 o’clock position emphasises the car’s
dynamic qualities, as does the silver-grey, hand-sewn cross-stitch
seam. Steering wheel trim panels are also optionally available for the
BMW X3 and BMW X4 in carbon fibre/leather, with central clasp in
either open-pore or high-gloss carbon fibre.
Shift paddles at the steering wheel enable the driver to change gear
without taking their hands off the steering wheel, thereby
facilitating vehicle control even when driving in dynamic style. For
the BMW X3 and BMW X4 with this feature on board, the shift paddles
are available in high-gloss carbon fibre. They are covered in an
extremely fine carbon mesh, enhanced with a PUR finish and a
high-gloss polish, and also feature plus and minus symbols in anodised red.
Extensive range of attractive summer complete wheel sets.
Much of a vehicle’s design is perceptibly dominated by its
wheel/tyre combination. This is why adaptations in this area have
traditionally been among the most popular customisation measures in
the automotive sector. This also accounts for the wide range available
as part of the BMW M Performance Parts program. The 20-inch summer
complete wheel set Styling 717 M is available for the BMW X2, for
example. The matt black finish of this light alloy wheel,
weight-optimised by means of flowforming technology (rolled rim well)
adds a particularly striking touch of sporty flair. The 19-inch M
Performance light alloy wheel Double Spoke 698 M in Orbit Grey is
available as a summer complete wheel set for the BMW X3 and BMW X4.
The exclusive finish and visible wheel bolts are key contributing
factors to an impressive appearance here. The 21-inch forged wheel Y
Spoke 701 M Bicolor is currently the largest wheel in the program of
Original BMW Accessories for the BMW X3 and BMW X4. It also has a
rolled rim well, and it weighs some two kilograms less than a
similarly designed cast wheel in the same format: this is because of
the special manufacturing process used. The Bicolor look with black as
the background colour and the burnished finish on the visible side
make for a very eye-catching impression, especially due to the
high-quality clear finish.
Light installations for a highly effective appearance.
One discreet customisation option that also adds a definite
touch of exclusivity at the same time are the BMW LED door projectors.
They replace the standard entry light and project a graphic onto the
ground when the door is opened. The selection of motifs include the
BMW M logo as well as various motifs from an M Performance slide set.
* The fuel consumption figures were calculated based on the ECE test
cycle, dependent on tyre format.
