BMWs will be well represented at the 2012 Essen Motor Show, at least in part due to the new programs German tuner AC Schnitzer will be presenting in Europe’s annual aftermarket auto show.

In addition to the M135i, AC Schnitzer has also built a package for the BMW 3-Series Touring with M Sport package. If you recall, the German tuner already releaseda program for the 3-Series Touring about a month ago. This time, though, the popular and sport package has been added into the mix.

Aesthetic and aerodynamic modifications are part of the program, as AC fitted the 3-Series Touring with a revised front bumper, new roof spoiler and rear skirts. The tuning company also added a spring kit with 25 mm (0.98-inch) lowering and a sports muffler with chromed tailpipe trims. Depending on the model 3-Series Touring, the tailpipes can be fitted in either the left or right side. Finishing up the exterior modifications, AC Schnitzer fitted the 3-Series Touring with wheels ranging from 18 to 20 inches, all of which are available in a number of finishes.

Moving onto the engine, AC Schnitzer is offering engine improvements across the whole range of 3-Series Touring trims, starting with the 330d, which increases to 309 horsepower and 494 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the 318d receives its own power upgrades, up from 143 horsepower to 171 ponies. The 320d got its power bump too, hitting 218 horsepower from its standard 184. Finally the supercharged 328i and the 335i both get significant upticks in output, hitting 360 horsepower from their standard 294.
