Wow, only 3 out of 14 items in the "performance" catalog actually improve performance. Crazy!!

So can I fit the m sport front bumper and side skirts on to my 328i? Or is it for 335i only?

Can anyone confirm if that 20" wheel fits e92 335i? I wonder how they look on the e92s.

And also the performance brakes, if they fit the current e92s?

too much fake CF in the interior but the exterior matches the performance.

I was under the impression that this particular F30 press car does not have the M Suspension installed on it. Can anyone confirm? Because there is no way that is 20mm lower than a base model, or 10mm lower than a sportline package in my opinion

Its definitely a sportier aesthetic - not sure I'd go for the stripes or want to deal with 20" wheels in the city but otherwise, I think its a great strategy for BMW to absorb some of the turner market with real, high quality parts engineered to exacting standards under the guidance of the original designers.

Lots of cool parts, but I can't believe it's that high with M Performance suspension.

Here is what I don't understand...if you buy a 335i, then add a bunch of M performance parts (brakes, wheels, exhaust, etc)...then aren't you at the same price effectively of a M3? I guess I'm missing something, but I would prefer to get a M3 than buy a 335i and then spend $10k in M performance accessories. Just my $0.02.

True, you'd probably be bumping up against the M3 price but that's a base M3 vs. a full loaded and less run-of-the-mill 335i. Start optioning the M3 and you are still more expensive compared to the 335i with mods.

I disagree, it ties in very well with the red stitching, red bar on the steering wheel and red bar on the door panels. Very subtle red accents, not over done in red.

Very Nice BMW.......

I guess it all depends on how you would option a M3 and 335i. A fully loaded M3 will run about $75k. A fully loaded 335i will run $56k...then add $10k in M performance parts (which I think is being somewhat conservative price wise) and you aren't that far off from the price of the M3.
