Not content with releasing a set of M Performance accessories, BMW UK has released videos showing off the M5 and M3 kitted out with these parts.

The dubstep-soundtracked videos reveal matte-finished M5 and M3 Performance models that have so far only been announced for the UK market.

This may be to cushion the substantial blow of the hi-po M550d not being engineered for right-hand drive. As consolation prizes go, it's a good one, and it's likely all 60 cars will find homes extremely quickly.

The M Performance accessories range was launched recently in Europe and the US, allowing owners to inject a bit of excitement (or a bit more) into the 1, 3 and 5 series as well as the X5 and X6.

The range supplemented an already comprehensive set of BMW Racing accessories such as racing buckets, big brakes, suspension and exhaust upgrades.

The M Performance parts don't do anything to the already-potent power plants, but bring carbon fibre parts to the interior and exterior, bigger and more powerful brakes, lightweight forged alloy wheels, Alcantara interior trim and flat-bottomed steering wheels for that proper boy-racer finish.

Should you not be happy with the relatively anonymous looks, you can also add black or white vinyl sports stripes to the exterior.

If you watch the videos closely, you'll see that the cars have cross-drilled brakes, M Performance wheels, front splitters and mirror caps.

The sheet metal appears unchanged and the videos clearly concentrate on the exterior looks of the upgraded models, further suggesting there's nothing new under the bonnet.

The M3 and M5 Performance models will hopefully make their way to our shores, but at present, there is no word.
