Cosmetic upgrades for the baby M come courtesy of Floridian aftermarket specialists.
Florida-based Precision Sport Industries (PSI) is the latest tuning house to offer an aftermarket package for the highly sought-after 1 Series M Coupe, production of which ended this summer after a single-year run. An aggressive body kit consists of a BMW Performance black kidney grille and a Slek CF front splitter. At the back a carbon-fiber trunk spoiler, also from the BMW Performance bin, and a Revozport 2x2 CF diffuser have been fitted, while the side mirrors were replaced by a carbon-fiber set.
For better acoustics PSI gave the baby M an Akrapovic Evolution titanium exhaust, and to improve handling, a KW V3 suspension. The only modification to the interior was the addition of a BMW Performance Alcantara M steering wheel. No changes were made to the 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight-six, so output is maintained at 335 horsepower and 332lb-ft of torque. Which is no bad thing in a nimble little coupe that brings the M division back to its routes after sojourning in overpowered crossover territory.
