Cool F20 1-series BMW Performance Aero Kit and Stripes Spied

F20 1-series BMW Performance Aero Kit and Stripes Spied

Seen in these photos for the first time is what we believe is the F20 1-series with BMW Performance Aero Kit (front bumper, sideskirts, and rear bumper) with BMW Performance racing stripes. As with the prior 1-series, the BMW Performance program for the F20 will feature both cosmetic and performance parts, some of which may be revealed at the upcoming Frankfurt IAA show in September.

Which clues indicate that the aero parts underneath the camouflage are BMW Performance parts and not merely M-sport parts?

Foremost, the BMW Performance stripes are a pretty good indication. Also, BMW has already released images of the F20 M-sport model, so there's little need to camouflage M-sport parts. Compared to F20 M-sport photos below, this test car's front bumper is clearly a different shape and style. Lastly, this particular model also features special badging of some kind (covered by camouflage tape). The F20 M-sport does not feature any special badges.

Yes @ Frankfurt. BMW will introduce the first "BMW Performance accessories" for the new 1er Sporthatch.

At first it will be mainly cosmetic but @ Geneva 2012 alongside the 3er Sedan which will also launch with "BMW Performance accessories"
The BMW 1er Sporthatch 3dr will receive it's world premiere along with expansion of further BMW performance accessories aimed at performance updates.

@ The IAA, BMW will have every example of the new F20 1er Sporthatch on display within Hall 11 in a special area, From the 116i Efficient Dynamics right up to the BMW Performance 120d.

The 1er also represents one of several new premieres and one full model line being represented with over seventy cars from BMW on show and live in the driving status.

Am I the only one who thinks these headlights are just utterly massive? Either way, it'll be a popular car in the states, a great car to compete against Audi's A3, but if I had a choice between the two, I'd def. lean to the A3.

No amount of makeup will make this car look right from the front. It needs redesign of the front. It's not even bug-eyed cute like the first generation US WRX. It just looks bleh...proportions are wrong.

Headlights are absurdly huge. Racing stripes are derp-tastic. I would pick a GTI or A3 over this any day.

SCOTT, will we see a N20B20-powered 120i and 128i models come in Frankfurt too? Possibly for the 3 door model only to start, to set it apart from the 5 door?

I would rather take the bus than drive a car with such a stripe on it...whatever happened to subtllty?
But being the business major that I am I can understand that BMW wants to take as big a piece from the tuning cake as possible. So good luck with that.

I like the fact that the face is blurred, but you can still see him through the mirror.

Yes. The 3dr 1er Sporthatch will premiere @ Geneva next March along with the more powerful engines and the next generation BMW 3er Sedan.
