BMW will unveil aero kit for the 1-series in Geneva
BMW will unveil at the Geneva Motor Show a performance aero kit for the BMW 3 Series and the BMW 1 Series. The aero kit features retrofittable options for the suspension, drivetrain, aerodynamics, and cockpit of the car developed especially for the respective model, reflecting the particular style of the brand in its technical and design features, and fulfilling all of BMW’s excellent standards in terms of quality and safety.
The BMW Performance Aerodynamics Kit optimises the dynamic driving qualities of the car and at the same time guarantees a powerful look in everyday traffic. Available for all models in the BMW 1 Series, the BMW Performance Aerodynamics Kit comprises a striking front air dam with a highly expressive, fully integrated surround on the BMW kidney grille in black high-gloss look as well as dynamically contoured side-sills.
Model-specific accessories made of carbon-fibre are also available in the interest of enhanced aerodynamics. These are carbon exterior mirror caps on all models in the BMW 1 Series, the BMW Performance carbon rear spoiler again for all models in the BMW 1 Series and the BMW 3 Series Saloon, as well as the BMW Performance carbon diffuser for all BMW 1 Series and all BMW 3 Series.
The new BMW Performance air intake system gives the straight-six petrol engines extra air supply for extra power in the BMW 1 Series and the BMW 3 Series. Proceeding from the standard configuration, the filter cartridge and the internal air flow have been modified, improving the flow of air and minimizing the risk of a drop in pressure.
A further advantage of the system is the particularly sporting sound experience within the car. And last but certainly not least, the BMW Performance air intake system optimizes not only power and performance, but also the efficiency of the engine.
The BMW Performance exhaust silencer serves to highlight the superior power and performance of the engines through the right sound. Without impairing the car’s long-distance touring comfort, the system gives the engine a particularly discreet but audibly sporting sound, the dual tailpipes made of chrome-plated stainless steel emphasizing the high-tech status of the car also in its looks. And a particularly important feature of this corrosion-resistant material is its very long service life.
