Fuelling individuality and the aura of motor sport: BMW M Performance Parts for the first-ever BMW M3 Touring.

Munich. The first ever BMW M3 Touring xDrive (fuel
consumption combined: 10.4 – 10.1 l/100 km [27.2 – 28.0 mpg imp];
CO2 emissions combined: 235 – 229 g/km in the WLTP cycle;
NEDC figures: – ) is the charismatic individualist of the BMW M GmbH
high-performance sports car line-up. And its stand-out-from-the-crowd
factor can be dialled up yet another notch with the addition of
model-specific BMW M Performance Parts – available from the launch of
the M3 Touring, which gets underway in November 2022. These retrofit
options from the Original BMW Accessories range provide the ideal
solution for customers looking to inject even greater dynamism into
both the eye-catching design of the BMW M3 Touring and its compelling
driving characteristics.

Sophisticated carbon-fibre exterior features bring a sharper
visual edge.

A broad selection of M Performance exterior components developed
specifically for the BMW M3 Touring shine an even brighter spotlight
on the motor sport genes at the heart of the new model. All of the
carbon-fibre components are made from CFRP (carbon-fibre-reinforced
plastic) with a clear coat finish, and hone the car’s sporting looks
from all angles. The M Performance front splitter carbon fibre and the
M Performance flics carbon fibre create a front-end appearance clearly
inspired by DTM touring car racers.

The M Performance air breathers carbon fibre and striking M exterior
mirror caps, both meticulously hand-crafted from CFRP, bring fresh
head-turning elements to the side view. And the M Performance rear
winglets carbon fibre, M Performance rear diffuser carbon fibre and M
Performance roof spoiler showcase the prominent rear end to sublime effect.

Titanium exhaust system and model-specific suspension options.

The titanium M Performance exhaust system underscores the extrovert
sporting presence of the M3 Touring with a central quartet of exhaust
tailpipes and puts smiles on faces with full-blooded racing-car
acoustics. The rear silencer and sporty tailpipe trim module – both
all-titanium – boldly accentuate the characterful soundtrack of the
six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology. The
commitment to lightweight design ensures the silencer is around 30 per
cent lighter than the standard item.

The impressive driving dynamics of the BMW M3 Touring are further
enhanced by the height-adjustable M Performance sport suspension. By
lowering the coilover system – and therefore the car’s centre of
gravity – and reducing rolling movements, it enables higher cornering
speeds. The M Performance sport brake pads at the front and rear
wheels are hugely effective on the road as well as on the track.

The M Performance forged wheels achieve the highest quality standards
for an extremely sporty driving style, blend effortlessly into the
car’s overall design and are fitted with sport tyres offering optimal
grip. Each wheel is sculpted from a single piece of aluminium and
machined with great precision, and the rim base is rolled out using a
flow-forming process. The wheels represent a compelling proposition
with their exceptional durability, top-end stability, assuredly true
running and visually stunning design. The Y-spoke M Performance forged
wheels in Jet Black matt have a particularly intense racing-car
character. They are 19 inches at the front and 20 inches at the rear,
and all have central locks. Rounding off the selection are the M
Performance forged wheels in cross-spoke design (front: 20-inch, rear:
21-inch). These can be ordered either in Jet Black matt or – for
additional uniqueness – Frozen Gold Bronze.

Motor sport feeling for the interior.

Sophisticated carbon-fibre and Alcantara elements bring the motor
sport DNA of BMW M into the interior. The M Performance interior trim
panels in open-pore, matt-coated carbon fibre combine with two large
knee pads with Alcantara surfaces, which optimise support for the
driver under particularly hard cornering. The M Performance backrest
covers imbue the driver’s and front passenger seats with high-grade
racing-car aura. The carbon-fibre head restraint trims have enhanced
visual appeal courtesy of a polyurethane lacquer finish and are
high-gloss polished, while the rest of the rear panel is trimmed in
exquisite Alcantara with an integrated aluminium M Performance badge.
Setting the seal on the exclusive racing car cockpit ambience is the M
Performance centre armrest in Alcantara, which adds an extra flourish
with its decorative stitching in BMW M GmbH colours and M Performance badging.

The new M Performance logos for the LED door projectors signal a
passion for motor racing and sense of tradition. And customers can now
also specify their cars with the “50 Jahre BMW M” motif marking the
50-year anniversary of BMW M.
