AC Schnitzer is débuting its new program for BMW’s M135i model at this year’s Essen Motor Show.
The company’s performance upgrade, which involves remapped ECU software, sees output from the bi-turbo 3.0-litre straight-six rise from 235 kW (320 hp) to 268 kW (360 hp). Visually, there are chromed exhaust tailpipes, a two-piece front spoiler exclusively for cars equipped with BMW’s M-Technik package and a raised roof spoiler which fits all models in the range, while a -25 mm spring kit provides the drop in ride height. AC Schnitzer carries a wide range of replacement wheels, including the Type IV rims and Type VIII forged alloys in 18, 19 and 20-inch diameters.
Moving inside the cabin, options include a Black Line aluminium gear knob, handbrake sleeve, pedal and footrest kit, and iDrive controller cover. There’s also a leather trimmed gear knob with a digital gear display on the top and embossed velour floor mats.
