Some days ago, we brought you spyshots of a special F20 1-series. With some help from our resident insider Scott26 we could identify that car as a BMW Performance 1-series.

BMW has now released the first official photos of the F20 1 series Performance Accessories Study. It's a showcase vehicle used to introduce the new line of BMW Accessories for the 2012 F20 1 series. No official details yet describing all the parts fitted, but clearly seen are: BMW Performance front and rear bumpers/diffuser which are more aggressively styled than the F20 M-Sport front bumper, sideskirts, black grilles, carbon fiber mirror covers, performance stripes, 19" Performance wheels, and BMW Performance brakes.

The interior features BMW performance steering wheel (alcantara/carbon fiber), alcantara trim, pedals, floor mats, shift knob and boot.

We also wouldn't be surprised if this car also had some factory engine tuning or performance enhancements. Stay tuned for more info before or from the Frankfurt IAA where the 1 series Performance Accessories Study will make its debut.

The wheels look like AC Schnitzer style. I like the rear and front bumpers.

Edit : Hmm, my bad, they are 10 double spoke wheels

Yuk. Front and rear bumpers are far too over styled.

Regular M Sport is much better looking.

I like it! The aggressive front bumper with its huge air vents manages to help balance out the headlights.

Yes that is the car we have at the Portalhaus Hall 11 in Frankfurt.

What is interesting is how someone took pictures of the car , as currently the Frankfurt hall is being used for dealer training of the 1er at the current time. So somebody might have put their franchise on the block.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Probably the most aftermarket/aggressive kit I've seen from BMW as an OEM piece. I do think it needs larger wheels to balance out the body kit, multipiece hamann wheels would do the trick!

Overall the potential for the F20 is there in spades!
