BMW Teases M Performance Parts for F20 1 Series - Hints at M135i?

BMW Teases M Performance Parts for F20 1 Series - Hints at M135i?

It's teaser time again. BMW is speeding up their newly founded M Performance division. Some days ago, BMW announced the first M Performance vehicles powered by the triturbo N57 Diesel engine. Now it's time to put their effort on the smaller cars.

Seen in this video is a teaser for the new lineup of M Performance accessories for the F20 1 series (we expect the F30 to follow shortly). We got a first glimpse at this lineup back at Frankfurt. The interesting parts are still blurred in the video, so expect unique M Performance front and rear bumpers, M Performance Brakes comprising of red calipers, slotted and drilled brake discs, carbon rear view mirrors, interior CF trim (feels incredibly good) and other goodies.

Just to be sure, the car teased here is NOT the M135i, even though the M135i might get similar (or the same) parts and look similar.

BMW has also set up an email notification, so register at for more info this Spring. Or just lay back and stay tuned here.

How about a tri-turbo retrofit for the 1M?

Not a fan of the machined finish on those rims, get curbed and no way to restore them properly. They also just look cheap to me. Saving up for some OZ Alleggerita's rather.
