BMW announced new M Performance Parts specially designed for the new 2012 BWW 3-Series Sedan and 2011-2012 5-Series Sedan. The manufacturer is continuing the tradition, which already offers such kind of parts for the high-performance M3, 1 Series M Coupe, X5 M and X6 M.

All components are specifically designed for 3-Series and 5-Series models. These include a gloss black grille, carbon fiber mirror caps, body stripes for the 3-Series and a carbon fiber rear spoiler for the 5-Series. Other exterior goodies are a set of 20" alloy wheels and a stainless steel sports exhaust system with two chrome-plated 80mm exhaust tips for the mighty 335i and the 535i.

To accent the 20" wheels and to improve braking performance, a Brembo big-brake kit with painted calipers is now available. It consists of 4-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the front axle and 2-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the rear axle. The discs are cross-drilled, internally-vented in diameter 370 mm front and 345 mm rear.

The interior boasts a new Motorsport-derived steering wheel for the 3 Series Sedan. There is also a 7-piece carbon fiber and Alcantara interior trim set inspired by the world of Motorsport.

Lastly, the cabin can be equipped with a carbon fiber gear knob and a seven-piece carbon fiber and Alcantara trim package.

A BMW M Performance carbon fiber gear shift knob and selector lever is available for vehicles with manual or automatic transmissions. The same open-pore technology used in the interior trim kit can be found on these products as well. The gear shift knob also has an integrated shift boot made of Alcantara.

All products installed on or in the vehicle carry a BMW 4 year/ 50,000 mile warranty on the items if installed prior to delivery of the new vehicle.
