Hot on the heels of the original 335i and 435i M Performance editions, BMW Canada has announced a second wave, with even more enhanced dynamics and visuals for BMW enthusiasts. Like its predecessors, these models showcase the vast array of M Performance components which enhance the styling and performance attributes of both cars.

Like the M Performance editions of the 335i and 435i come with the full M Performance Aerodynamics kit with carbon front elements and segment-exclusive 20-inch alloy wheels. Their interiors reflect the seriousness of their performance, with Black Dakota Leather upholstery  in most cars (with Coral Red available also) as well as exclusive BMW Individual Piano Black interior trim with Satin Chrome highlights.

Further visual differentiation comes in the form of an M Performance rear diffuser, black kidney grills, M Performance side skirts with branding, an M Performance exhaust system, and a rear lip spoiler in carbon fibre on the 435i.

Other exclusive equipment includes an M Performance steering wheel with red 12-o’clock mark and carbon-fibre inserts, and an M Performance differential.

The most important upgrade, of course, is an M Performance power kit that bumps power to 335 hp and torque to 332 lb-ft, which reduces the 0-100 km/h time to just 4.5 seconds.

Like all M Performance editions, the 335i and 435i M Performance Editions have been priced very aggressively and at a modest premium. The 335i M Performance Edition starts at $65,900, and the 435i at $69,900, both with six-speed manual transmissions. Eight-speed automatic transmissions and xDrive all-wheel drive are available also.
