BMW M8 M Performance parts announced alongside M8 Competition reveal

BMW’s standard M8 Competition not special enough for you? New M Performance parts can fix that

BMW M has revealed a range of M Performance parts able to be specified on the all-new M8 Competition. In the usual fashion, these BMW M parts feature part-carbonfibre construction, and have been designed to give the already pretty aggressive M8 Competition even more attitude.

Most distinctive of these parts are the carbon outer sills, front splitter inserts, front kidney grille surrounds and side-strake detail. All of these parts add to the M8’s already numerous carbon components, such as the rear diffuser and lip spoiler.

> New 2019 BMW M8 Competition revealed – the 8-series we’ve been waiting for

The wheels are also new, differing from the two-tone items that are standard, and are of a surprisingly restrained style, with a similar y-spoke design as one might find on the M3 CS (or M850i, if we’re being picky). Look closely though and you’ll see that the spokes have a series of cut-outs, likely reducing weight, while introducing a technical, ornate look.

Inside is a new Alcantara steering wheel, with carbon inserts replacing the usual silver plastic components, but otherwise the same mostly standard 8-series interior remains.

As with many M Performance parts, these components will be available at BMW dealers when the M8 Competition reaches customers later this year.
