AC Schnitzer Works its Magic on BMW 2 Series

BMW tuning specialist AC Schnitzer has revealed a comprehensive makeover for the BMW 2 Series. As has become the aftermarket norm, carbon-fiber add-ons adorn the body, including a new front splitter, rear diffuser, mirror caps, and roof spoiler. Other visual treats include a sports exhaust and variety of 18-20 inch alloys, while sport and racing suspensions are also on offer if you want to drop your ride 40 mm closer to the road.

A range of performance upgrades sees the 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder in the M235i boosted to 380 hp for a 0-62 mph time of less than five seconds, while other programs include the 218d upped to 171 hp, the 220d to 218 hp and the 225d upgraded to 258 hp. Inside, the cabin is jazzed up by a manual gear knob with digital display, an aluminum handbrake handle, and alloy pedals.
