AC Schnitzer F30 3 Series BMW now official

AC Schnitzer F30 3 Series BMW now official

COMMENTS

The Aachen-based experts from AC Schnitzer help the 3-series with Diesel engines 318d and 320d to achieve 126 kW/171 HP or 160 kW/218 HP. The performance upgrades for the 328i and 335i will realise 216 kW/294 HP or 265 kW/360 HP but both are still in the final development stage. One thing is for sure: with the AC Schnitzer performance upgrades the 3 series will have an even more impressive presence.

As appearances are also important, these inner values are reflected in the AC Schnitzer engine optics.

The saloon makes itself heard with the AC Schnitzer sports rear silencer with one or two chromed "Racing“ tailpipes. A pure optical enhancement is given by the AC Schnitzer “Racing” tailpipe

In the 3 series by AC Schnitzer, you ride out life's ups and downs on the AC Schnitzer suspension spring kit. In combination with lowering, this ensures that you can never lose ground adhesion even on turbulent, twisty events. This is guaranteed with the AC Schnitzer wheels Type IV BiColor and silver, Type VI and Type VIII in 18 to 20 inch, which form a solid yet sporting and elegant basis for the wheelarches.

A new addition to the AC Schnitzer range is the Type VIII wheel in BiColor silver. This comes in 18, 19 and 20 inch and impresses with its sporting elegance. The colouring - lacquered silver with bright turned aluminium accents - makes it appear even larger.

The ACS3 reveals its inner values with the AC Schnitzer "Black Line“ aluminium cover for the BMW "i-Drive“ system controller, several gear knobs, the "Black Line“ aluminium handbrake handle, the aluminium pedal set, a foot rest and floor mats in velours. But that's not all:

The aerodynamic components from AC Schnitzer make the already excellent standard model into a vehicle with even more dynamism and sporting ambitions. The AC Schnitzer front spoiler, chromed front grille, rear roof spoiler, rear spoiler and rear skirt extension, complemented by design stripes are also now available.

Bad choice of wheels. I'm not digging their ideas lately. The new AC M5 was very tacky and I'm not blown away by this.

For once, Schnitzer does a car that doesn't look absolutely horrid.

NICE!

I don't understand adding vinyl graphics to the car though, it has its own beautiful lines, vinyl graphics just take away from them IMO...

I'm sorry but I really hate this, and pretty much everything AC does lately, like the stupid Idrive controller knob? What is this a toy car?

Never been fan of AC Schnitzer ...

You beat me to it. That knob is atrocious, I can't believe they are still using it.

Acs shouldn't be allowed to touch anything cosmetic... Although this is much more acceptable than some of their other cars.

They should be punished for what they did to such a beautiful car.

The members here posted superb photos of their BMWs, so I'm off to console myself by watching their pics.

and what is that crap on the I-Drive knob?

Its seems like almost every cosmetic mod I have seen from AC is totally cheesey looking. And the design on the I-control knob... Seriously?

Not just you. It might sound really good though.

That 360 HP number makes me wonder what the real flywheel horsepower of a PPK N55 is, not the BMW underrated number.

they would do better investing their efforts into a replacement of that plastic around the gear-box stick.

a sheet of glass would do wonders

Way to ruin another Bimmer AC!! ... I must admit it is better than their 1M with quilted interior.

ahh and they still add a small look-a-like AC rim for the idrive!!! I hate that so much!!! How could anyone take it seriously?!?

1. they shouldn't have used a red f30
2. front airdam is no different than the subtleness of the stock ones.
3. probably used the same exhaust and roof spoiler design for the past century... time to change up your signature, ac...
4. weird rim design... not the best for sure.
5. i'm definitely not sold.

They did a much better job on this 3er compared to the last 3. The last 3 (e90) aero parts looked like and after thought that wasnt put together well and was just stuck on the car.
