Owners of the 220d models will be able to specify a mild ECU re-map, boosting power by 16bhp to 200bhp, without harming the car’s fuel consumption of CO2 emissions. There’s no power upgrade from the M235i, although you can buy a sports exhaust for a slightly improved sound.

BMW M Performance Sports suspension can be ordered, which consists of a 20mm drop in ride height, thanks to slightly shorter coil springs as well as revised dampers. This can be purchased along side a performance brake kit and 19-inch forged alloy wheels.

The range of exterior options goes big on carbon fibre, including a carbon rear spoiler, front splitter, as well as a rear diffuser. There’s also an option for some deeper side skirts and carbon fibre mirror caps. Inside, you can buy an alcantara and carbon steering wheel, as well as a carbon fibre gear knob and handbrake lever.
