The best ideas for even more driving pleasure: Original BMW Accessories.

Parallel to the current model initiative, the range of Original BMW Accessories offers a multitude of new possibilities to enhance the pleasure of driving a BMW to suit one’s personal needs. The choice of products presented at the 2011 Geneva International Motor Show focuses predominantly on newly developed retrofit components, which contribute towards an even more dynamic driving experience. For example, the components currently included in the BMW Performance product line are now available for the new BMW 1 Series Coupe and the new BMW 1 Series Convertible on show to the general public in Geneva for the first time. For both models the range of Original BMW Accessories also includes sport stripes for the bonnet and the rear, as well as for the roof of the BMW 1 Series Coupe. The decorative element comprising two parallel-running stripes of different width is available in either white or black.

Furthermore, attractive additions to the BMW Performance product portfolio for the BMW 1 Series, the BMW 3 Series and for the BMW X5 and BMW X6 are being presented. These include, inter alia, the new BMW Performance sports steering wheel and the BMW Performance Power Kit for the current four-cylinder diesel engines. Also, the range of Original BMW Accessories being presented at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show includes the latest M Performance components for the BMW M3.

Size:  149.5 KBEnhanced pulling power, no increase in fuel consumption: the BMW Performance Power Kit for the BMW 120d and the BMW 320d.

Thanks to sporty driving characteristics and exemplary fuel consumption levels, BMW models featuring a four-cylinder diesel engine set the benchmark for efficiency in several vehicle segments. Now it is possible to optimise the balance between driving pleasure and fuel consumption even further. The BMW Performance Power Kit for current diesel models of the BMW 1 Series and the BMW 3 Series ensures a noticeable increase in maximum output with consistently low fuel consumption and CO2 emission levels. It is available as a retrofit component for the BMW 120d and the 320d.


BMW 320d with a standard power output of 130 kW/177 bhp as well as the new generation of the BMW 320d featuring a 135 kW/184 bhp engine. A corresponding option for increasing engine output and torque can also be ordered for the BMW 520d for even more driving pleasure. However, the BMW 520d’s fuel consumption of 4.9 litres/100 km in the EU test cycle, a level unmatched in this segment, remains unaffected by the boost in performance.

Size:  193.4 KBThe BMW Performance Power Kit for the diesel engines comprises perfectly harmonised software and hardware components. They were exclusively developed for both variants of the 2-litre, four-cylinder diesel power unit with all-aluminium crankcase, Common Rail direct injection and supercharger. Specific modifications to the engine management have a positive effect on development of power. A large intercooler and a highly-efficient fan for the main radiator adapt the system to the varying thermal conditions. As a result, maximum output of the four-cylinder diesel engine is boosted from 130 kW/177 bhp to 145 kW/197 bhp and from 135 kW/184 bhp to 147 kW/200 bhp respectively. Maximum torque, which is available from 2,000 rpm and 1,750 rpm respectively, is raised by 40 Nm to 390/420 Nm.

The most significant result of this power increase is the noticeable optimisation of acceleration and elasticity on all models, including the acceleration from 80 to 120 km/h in 5th gear, which is now up to one second faster. The BMW Performance Power Kit for diesel engines is available in the respective version not only for the BMW 320d Sedan, but also for the respective touring model, the coupe and the convertible as well as for model variants featuring BMW xDrive intelligent four-wheel drive technology. Within the BMW 1 Series, the three-door and five-door BMW 120d, the BMW 120d Coupe and the BMW 120d Convertible can be equipped with the retrofit component to boost performance.




Characteristic sound, exclusive look: The BMW Performance Silencer for 1-series, 3-series, X5, and X6

Characteristic sound, exclusive look: BMW Performance Sports Silencer. A further retrofit component recently added to the BMW Original Accessory range is the BMW Performance Sports Silencer, which is available for all four- cylinder diesel power units of the BMW 1 Series and BMW 3 Series. In addition to optimising exhaust back pressure, this feature develops a specifically characteristic sound that is exceptionally impressive during acceleration. Moreover, two round chrome-plated 74-mm tailpipes give the exhaust system a strikingly sporty look.

The latest range of BMW Performance products also comprises an attractive complementation of the BMW X5 and the BMW X6 models. From the spring of 2011, a BMW Performance Sports Silencer will be available for the models BMW X5 xDrive35i and BMW X6 xDrive35i. The stainless-steel sports silencer emphasises the characteristic acoustics of the straight-six power unit featuring BMW TwinPower Turbo, at the same time ensuring a drop in exhaust back pressure. Furthermore, the oval-shaped, black chrome tailpipes give the rear end a highly distinctive appearance.




New design and additional functions: the BMW Performance Sports Steering Wheel.

New design and additional functions: the BMW Performance Sports Steering Wheel. With ergonomically optimised design and additional technical features, the revised version of the BMW Performance Sports Steering Wheel now enhances the sports-oriented driving experience even further. The steering wheel rim’s flattened lower section, the Alcantara cover that offers perfect grip even in extremely demanding driving situations, and an integrated race computer clearly indicate, among other things, that it was directly inspired by motor racing.

The function display featuring LED technology and located behind a high- quality polycarbonate glass cover in the upper section of the steering wheel rim provides miscellaneous information on oil and water temperature, longitudinal and lateral acceleration as well as gear shift point and time within the direct field of view of the driver. The desired information is accessed via special buttons, which are arranged in the thumb rest area of the steering wheel rim. When selecting the accessible information, the driver can choose between the “Efficient Dynamics”, “Sport” and “Race” modes. The new BMW Performance Sports Steering Wheel is available for all models of the BMW 1 Series and BMW 3 Series as of the spring of 2011.




Maximum performance down to the smallest detail: M Performance components for the BMW M3.

The BMW M3’s outstanding dynamics and design can now be selectively and individually optimised using M Performance retrofit components from the Original BMW Accessory range. The currently offered products comprise attractive and exceptionally high-quality retrofit components for the drive train, suspension, aerodynamics and cockpit.

The M Performance Sports Silencer ensures a highly characteristic enhancement of the BMW M3’s V8 power unit. The extremely temperature- resistant sports silencer, which is 40 percent lighter than the series production version, is made of a chromium-nickel material developed for motor racing, the typical M dual tailpipes being made of titanium. 19-inch M light alloys sporting the Competition design underscore the BMW M3’s dynamic handling potential, the M Performance rear spoiler and M Performance hand-made carbon front apron flaps providing additional downforce. Carbon exterior mirror flaps visually accentuate increased dynamics. Inside the car, the racing-inspired experience is emphasised by aluminium pedals and carbon-look interior trims.

Like all products from the Original BMW Accessory range, BMW Performance and M Performance components comply with the stringent BMW Group quality and safety standards. Consequently, they are subject to an equal extent to BMW’s terms of warranty. BMW dealerships, BMW service partners and BMW branches are responsible for the sale and installation of all Original BMW Accessories.

Looks like the 4-cylinder diesels have some options, but nothing for the 6-cylinder diesels in the US? Bummer.


Also apparently "silencer" is what people across the pond call "mufflers."

The first Gen. Performance wheel worked with both DCT and Steptronic cars so I'm assuming this will hold true for the new one.

The brakes are fine, it's the cooling that is the issue. BMW says they needed all three main intakes in the front bumper to feed the V8 so there are no brake cooling ducts. I'm pretty sure you can get the cooling ducts through the Performance parts, though.

Of course if you're doing a serious HPDE you could do with better brakes but for 98% of people the cooling ducts should be sufficient.

If I get the steering wheel, will it report on the 335d's oil temp? I hate the fact that my car has no way of telling the temp of the engine. Unlike the 335i with the very useful oil gauge, all I get is a worthless mpg gauge.

With you on this one, on a technical track I've experienced brake fade within 3 laps! nothing I could do except a cool down lap and then a hour or so in the pit lane!

I've since fitted braided hoses, upgraded brake fluid and better brake pads which help but I'd love a OEM 6 pot caliper option.

For the new M5 there will be a ceramic brake option so fingers crossed it filters down into the other cars!

Maximum performance down to the smallest detail: M Performance components for the BMW M3.

It sure would be nice if they really meant this "smallest detail" horse s**t. The 2x2 weave on these CF pieces doesn't match the 1x1 weave on E92 M3's CF roof.
