BMW has unveiled a range of M Performance Parts for the new M2 Competition, which not only help to give it more visual presence, but also trim a few kilos here and there.

The new 19-inch M Performance Y-spoke style 763 M forged wheels help reduce 3.2 kg from the unsprung mass, and can be fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres as well. They also help highlight the motorsport-derived brakes, which have larger discs that feature a compound with improved thermal resilience.

Paired with six- (front) and four-piston (rear) calipers, BMW also offers sports brake pads if more performance is what’s needed. To increase driving dynamics even further, an M Performance suspension retrofit kit adds on coil-spring suspension that can be lowered by up to 20 mm along with adjustable dampers – 12 compression stage and 16 rebound stage setting options.

Other weight-saving measures available include carbon-fibre components on the exterior, beginning with a new bonnet that sheds approximately 9 kg off of the front axle. There’s also a carbon-fibre roof (-5 kg) and tailgate (-6 kg) to remove an additional 11 kg. Other items like the carbon-fibre front side panel and side scuttles help reduce weight even more.

If you need even more parts made of the stuff, BMW’s got you covered with a slew of optional parts. The list includes a front splitter, kidney grille, air breather side bars, mirror caps, door sill finisher, side skirt extension, rear diffuser, rear spoiler (two kinds) and engine cover. Those decals are also an option, featuring the distinctive M colours.

The catalogue also includes 93 mm tailpipes made of carbon fibre with the M logo, which is part of the M Performance exhaust system that features a stainless steel setup and a titanium rear silencer. This will let you better hear the car’s S55 3.0 litre twin-turbo straight-six, and contributes to another 8 kg of weight saving.

Opening the doors, there are BMW LED door projectors and two sports steering wheels available. The M Performance steering wheel Pro is wrapped with leather and Alcantara for the grip area, while the non-Pro version comes with a configurable race display and open-pore carbon-fibre.

Rounding off the list are stainless steel pedal covers, dedicated floor mats and a carbon-fibre/Alcantara M Performance interior kit. Even the key can be protected in an M Performance key case featuring Alcantara/carbon-fibre.
