Tradition dictates that soon as BMW launches a new car, it releases a slew of ‘M Performance Parts’—accessories to augment the look and, says BMW, feel of your shiny new motor. Usually, it’s things like skirts, spoilers, and alloy wheels. Maybe a bit of carbon-fiber trim or a new steering wheel.

We hoped that for the new M3 and M4, the M Performance Parts people might have offered an alternative grille, for the folks who find the new M cars a bit nasally challenged. But alas, it was not to be. Instead there’s the usual mix of wheels, carbon spoilers, splitters and winglets, and height-adjustable sports suspension. The cars pictured here are wearing pretty much everything.

But the headline part is that exhaust. The M Performance Silencer System replaces the standard cars’ quad tailpipes with a new, 5kg lighter system made from titanium. The new tailpipes are bunched together in the middle and stacked on top of each other. Think Lexus IS F, but more gauche.
