The kits enhance performance without compromising on warranty.

The BMW M Performance kits which were discontinued in India in late 2014 due to homologation issues are reported to be reintroduced soon. The kits will be available for popular models like the 320d, 520 d, 530 d and X5 30d.

The M Performance kit includes an official engine remap, reworked air intake, larger intercooler, a heavy duty cooling fan, aerodynamic body kits complete with more aggressive bumpers and an optional exhaust system upgrade.

The M Performance kits include several performance enhancing elements like remapped ECU, larger intercooler, upgraded exhaust system, etc.

The kit makes the cars noticeably sportier than the regular versions. In addition to the aforementioned updates, the 530 d and X5 30d also benefit from larger front brakes. The pricing details of the kits have not been released yet. The M Performance kits offer performance boost equivalent to a moderate after market modification job but without hampering the warranty.

BMW India has been lagging behind the Mercedes and Audi for the last few years in terms of sales. The introduction of sporty performance upgradesĀ is expected to strength the brand image among driving enthusiasts.
