One of the most impressive models at BMW’s stand at the Frankfurt Motor Show was a BMW Performance Studie based on the new 1-Series. The new equipment improves the dynamic appearance and sporty driving characteristics of the 1-Series and will include a motorsport-inspired suspension and brake system, an aerodynamics package, and a completely restyled interior.

The list of accessories include a BMW Performance aerodynamics package, a BMW Performance suspension, and a new BMW Performance 18-inch brake system that will improve both weight and high thermal resistance. The new brake system will be combined with a new set of 19-inch BMW Performance light alloy wheels, while the interior gets a BMW Performance steering wheel.

Now, on to power, the BMW Performance components always include updates for the power train, suspension, aerodynamics, and cockpit, so BMW is offering an upgrade package for the 135i versions. The BMW Performance power kit includes a modified engine management system that will increase the 3.0-liter unit’s output by 20 HP, up to a total of 326 hp.

Well, it is a good thing that they also include some updates for the power train of it and to the features of it, which only adds more appeal and stunning assets on this car. However, I’m still not impressed on its 326 horsepower.

I think they should upgrade the horsepower and engine of this one. I just really don’t think that it is enough good on it. Furthermore, I can say that it’s decent and hygienic body paint is almost striking on it.

326 horsepower? Is that quite good enough for this one? Anyway, just like them, I can say that I am so impressed with the improvement of BMW, it is absolutely looking very striking! smiley
