BMW tuning specialist AC Schnitzer has made available upgrades for the recently revamped BMW 1-Series compact hatchback.
Power, suspension upgrades for BMW 1-Series
Customers can also crank up the power on the regular 1-Series variants. All turbodiesels can get a 40-horsepower upgrade, with the 2.0-liter, twin-cam, 16-valve, common-rail-direct-injection, inline-4 unit in the top-specification 125d now producing 258 horsepower.
Meanwhile, 116i owners can get an extra 68 horsepower from their 1.6-liter, twin-cam, 16-valve, direct-injection, inline-4 turbo petrol engine to deliver 204 horsepower. For those with the 3.0-liter, twin-cam, 24-valve, direct-injection, inline-6 turbo petrol unit in the M135i, an extra 54 horsepower can net 380 horsepower with the optional charge cooler and sports exhaust catalyst.
The M135i can also be fitted with a sports silencer and chromed tailpipes, with the latter available for all other variants. All the 1-Series models can also be fitted with a sports suspension package and a 30-millimeter lowering kit, while the M variant can be equipped with fully adjustable racing suspension for more demanding high-speed driving. This set-up lowers the M135i by up to 45 millimeters at the front and up to 50 millimeters at the back.
The company said all performance upgrades come with a two-year warranty.
