BMW's Tricked Out 3 Series M Performance Shows Us What the Future M3 Could Look Like

The inevitable BMW M3 (rumored to be codenamed G80) is still some months away, but that didn’t stop BMW from offering people a glimpse of what it could look like thanks to the all-new 3 Series outfitted with M Performance Parts.

Coinciding with the global debut of the all-new 3 Series, BMW also showcased an extensive array of M Performance Parts available as original BMW accessories for the sporty compact sedan. Designed to offer customers with an enhanced sporty look for their 3 Series, these M Performance Parts also offer functional advantages such as better aerodynamics or lower weight.

Outside, BMW is offering no less than 10 M Performance Parts for the all-new 3 Series. The list includes two kinds of front splitter, rear spoiler, and rear diffuser. Offered in a choice between carbon, high-gloss black, or black matte, they all designed to optimize airflow around the car leading to improved highspeed road holding. Then, there’s the M Performance tailpipes which are made of lightweight titanium and carbon fiber. Of course, there are more aesthetic items available too such as the M Performance exterior caps (made of carbon-reinforced plastic) and M Performance side sill films.

Towards more performance-oriented parts, BMW is also offering 18-inch perforated and grooved disc brakes. Highlighted by its bright red caliper, it has a four-piston design and are made of aluminum to keep the weight down. Then, there’s the light alloy wheels. The 20-inch ones feature a forged construction and is available in one of three finishes.

Inside, BMW is also offering an M Performance steering wheel, carbon fiber shift paddles, and even open-pore carbon fiber trim for the interior. Even the floor mats don’t escape BMW’s attention and there’s an available M Performance version with the tri-colored M flag.

Finally, there’s something also available for those who regularly track their 3 Series: a drive analyzer and camera holder. Consisting of an OBD stick that plugs straight into the vehicle’s diagnostics system, the drive analyzer supplies all sorts of data. It also doubles as a drive data recorder as well.
