BMW has announced a new BMW 2 Series coupe, the M235i, equipped with M Performance parts. Available in March 2014, these M Performance parts were developed in close collaboration with BMW M, and the catalog offers upgrades to the drivetrain, suspension, aerodynamics, and design.
In the power department, BMW offers an M Performance Power Kit for the 220d coupe, increasing the output of the four-cylinder diesel engine by 16 horsepower to 200. A BMW M Performance silencer system is available for the BMW M235i coupe. BMW M Performance tailpipe trim elements are offered in chrome or carbon, bearing the M logo. And for the first time, an optional BMW M Performance limited-slip differential is available for the BMW M235i coupe and the 4 Series coupe.
BMW M Performance sports suspension is offered including a lowering the car about an inch as compared to the standard version. A BMW M Performance rear spoiler in carbon is offered as well as a BMW M Performance Aerodynamic Kit available for the front apron which has been tailored specifically to this model.
BMW M Performance parts developed for all variants of the BMW 2 Series Coupé were designed to boost driving dynamics as well as underscorec the athletic appearance and sporty interior ambience of the new 2-door model. The product selection forms part of the Original BMW Parts program and enables the driver of a BMW 2 Series Coupé to add a touch of individual style in a way that expresses motor racing enthusiasm.
Products available for all model variants include the BMW M Performance sports suspension with specific dampers and shortened coil springs finished in red, and the especially light and high-capacity BMW M Performance brake system with brake calipers painted in a choice of red, yellow or orange. 19-inch forged BMW M Performance light alloy wheels are also available in two design versions.
As a supplement to the M sports package and in conjunction with the BMW M Performance rear spoiler in carbon there is a BMW M Performance Aerodynamic Kit available for the front apron which has been tailored specifically to this model. The combination of air ducting elements at front and rear guarantees an ideal aerodynamic balance and can be supplemented with a diffuser insert for the rear apron as well as attachments for the side sills. Other individual accents to the outer appearance of the BMW 2 Series Coupé can be added by means of a black decorative grid for the BMW kidney grille, exterior caps in carbon, side sill foils with M Performance inscription and BMW M Performance accent stripes in two colour versions.

A carbon finish is likewise available for the gear selector switch of the automatic transmission.
