BMW M Performance parts: pricing, availability and range

You can add some sporting flare to your BMW with the BMW M Performance parts range. Here’s the lowdown...

Faux-carbon fibre and cheap steering wheel covers aren’t awfully well-suited to BMW’s latest models, so to satisfy your car-fettling urges, the marque has created its very own department for the creation of high-quality, OEM parts. We run down everything you need to know about BMW M Performance parts, from pricing, to availability and what’s available for your car. 

Though competitors may offer a range comprised solely of overpriced branded floor mats, keyrings and coffee cups, the M Performance parts range extends far beyond, with exclusive wheels, exhaust systems, brake upgrades and engine tunes all on offer alongside steering wheels, individual aero parts and full body kits. The possibilities to upgrade your ultimate driving machine are endless, and better still, your car will remain under warranty.

Not only can you add some sporting flare, and perhaps even some performance to your BMW with a host of new carbon fibre components, power-boosting modifications are also available for selected BMW models. The MPPSK (M Performance Power and Sound Kit) for B58-equipped 40i models adds an entirely new cat-back exhaust system and ECU tune, offering a considerable bump in sound and power, strangely enough. 

Pricing

The price of BMW M Performance Parts varies depending on your dealership’s markup and the complexity of installation, but as you’d expect of premium manufacturer approved products, they can be pricey. 

For reference, an M Performance steering wheel for the BMW 440i will set you back around £1300, a set of 20” lightweight wheels come in at over £3800 and the MPPSK system is around the £1600 mark. 

There are cheaper options such as M Performance exterior stickers that will set you back around £100, carbon fibre mirror caps around £250, and a black, M Performance front grille, a reasonable £58. 

Availability 

M Performance parts are available on every BMW currently on sale, minus the eco-centric i3 and i8. That means M5 or M2 owners can take their performance models up to a new level of style and capability but those with regular 1-series, 2-series or 3-series cars can add a dash of M division flavour at a comparatively low cost. Indeed, from the X2 to the M8, there’ll be a BMW M Performance add-on worth considering and affordable for almost any owner who’s that way inclined.

Even the recently unveiled G8X M3 and M4 have received a range of M Performance parts, with an array of carbon fibre accessories, a number of new wheels designs and a controversial centrally-mounted exhaust system now available. Front dive planes, a high-rise wing and an uprated splitter can also be had to increase aggression, while additional carbon fibre can be optioned for the cabin. 

As for how to have the parts equipped, your nearest dealership will be able to place an order, but there are certain M Performance specialists dotted around the country with technicians trained to install more complex components. It’s possible to buy some of the parts to install yourself but many have to be fitted at BMW dealers.

To search the entire catalogue, visit the BMW M Performance Parts site or contact you local dealer for help in choosing the right parts for your car.
