It seems that BMW is starting to release versions from M Performance soon after the official debut of each model. Today, the Bavarians announce three more cars for which these additional options are available – this is the 3 Series Touring (wagon), the first in the history of the 8 Series Gran Coupe and the X1 crossover.

We will start with our favorite – station wagon 3 series. Already shown in the more powerful version of the M340i.

The car received an external package consisting of six parts. Covers for carbon fiber side mirrors can be purchased, complemented by a rear cone also made from carbon fiber, but as an alternative, the latter can have a glossy black appearance. A similar color can be seen on the rear spoiler mounted on the roof. The wagon rides on 18-inch wheels with more powerful brake calipers in red or blue to contrast with the body of the Frozen White.

Inside there will be more carbon fiber, as well as an Alcantara-covered steering wheel with a red central marking. The unusual shift knob is different from the one you find in the standard 3-Series Touring, and even has a backlit gearshift pattern.

Keyring and LED doorways complete the list of pleasant things.

As for the 8 Series Gran Coupe, the changes here start at the front, where a wide grille can be highlighted with a carbon fiber frame to match the side mirrors, also made of carbon fiber with a glossy polish. Wheels up to 20 inches in size are available from the M Performance catalog.

For the X1 crossover, the guys from BMW will offer a M Performance side skirt, as well as carbon mirror covers and a glossy black finish for the grille. If you want to give preference to style rather than ride quality, large 20-inch alloys with a matte black finish are available.
