BMW 2 Series M Performance Kit Revealed For 235i And 220d Coupes

Mike Stevens | Nov 29, 2013


BMW has rolled out another pair of sports offerings this week, unveiling the new 235i M Performance and 220d M Performance.

The new kit delivers styling and handling upgrades for both models, while the diesel coupe also lands a small power boost for a little extra 'oomph'.

Buyers of the 220d M Performance will see the turbocharged 2.0 litre four-cylinder's output increased by around 12kW and 40Nm, making for 147kW and a meaty 420Nm.

BMW says the re-tune will have no effect on fuel consumption, which the 220d lists at around 4.5 l/100km.

Both models get new sports suspension that also sets the body 20mm closer to the ground, along with BMW M Performance sports brakes with painted calipers.

In 235i form, the M Performance pack also adds a limited-slip differential, along with a 'silencer' system that reduces exhaust gas pressure to deliver a more sporting note.

New 19-inch forged alloy wheels prop up each corner and, of course, a full sports styling and aero body-kit is also included.

In the cabin, there's an Alcantara and carbon fibre-trimmed sports steering wheel with shift lights, Alcantara-trimmed gear shifter, and a number of other carbon highlights.

Watch for local news of the M Performance models as the 2 Series Coupe nears its early 2014 Australian launch.

      Agreed. I drove the 4 Series last week and it's pretty damn good, but unless you need more room, I dunno why you wouldn't just buy this. Proper manual too!

    Don't really like it.
    The M235i looks much cleaner.

    While it's a me too styling (from other BMW cars), it's not half bad looking.

    And with the M bodykit, this model is starting to grow on me.
