BMW's new M2 has been hailed by many as the sporty coupe that harks back to the legendary early M3s, and now the German automaker has released details on a slew of M Performance Parts designed to hop up the little coupe even more.
For now, the parts are mostly aerodynamic and styling bolt-ons, not actual go-fast goodies, as BMW showed off at last year's SEMA. But we anticipate that items like custom suspension tuning and a raucous exhaust system are merely around the corner.
The video highlights a host of carbon fiber bits designed to spice up the exterior: a rear diffuser, trim for the tailpipes, a front splitter, side skirt extensions, mirror caps, and a rear spoiler. Inside, BMW's M Performance Parts offers a gear lever covered in, you guessed it, carbon fiber, as well as a "pro" steering wheel wrapped in grippy Alcantara. Black kidney grilles and signature BMW M tri-color stripes round out the stylistic changes.
The only non-styling modification is a flap silencer system for the car's exhaust.
The M2's relative simplicity up against the larger M3/M4 and M5 has already earned it a place in the hearts of many reviewers, but we imagine it will take some parts that actually live up to the performance side of M Performance Parts to really pique our interest at a dealer's accessories counter.
