Developed as a successor to the 1 Series Coupe, already a classic among BMW enthusiasts, the 2 Series is not just good-looking, but powerful as well. The 228i delivers 240 horses and strong performance while returning 36 mpg on the highway, and the M235i will make your heart pump faster with the 320 ponies residing under the hood. Add the fuel-efficient, yet still potent diesel engine available in Europe and you got a complete vehicle on your hands. But does this mean the 2 Series can’t be improved upon? Hell, no!
At least not if you ask the folks over at AC Schnitzer, who have been meddling with Bimmers since the late 1960s. There’s no such thing as a new BMW without an AC Schnitzer package, and the 2 Series is the perfect proof that the Aachen-based specialist means business. It didn’t take too long for AC Schnitzer to come up with a series of updates for the 2 Series, which can now benefit from increased output rating across the entire lineup. Well, almost, as the U.S.-spec 228i is not included yet. But AC Schnitzer’s new offering is not just about added horsepower. These compact Bimmers are also enhanced by aerodynamic parts and various interior upgrades. Check them all out past the jump.
