BMW Offers M8 Performance Accessories

If you're like us, then you might be thinking that the just-revealed BMW M8 looks a little, well, plain. Restrained for an M car. And sure, maybe that's in keeping with older models like the E36 M3 and E39 5er, but it's certainly not the BMW we've come to expect here in 2019. But good news, everyone! BMW is launching a host of accessories to help emm up the M.

Complete with a 625 hp high performance V8 engine affixed to the chassis more firmly and performance optimized damper tuning, increased camber at the front, and an xDrive system that can send power to all four wheels or just the rear ones, the new M8 Competition is no slouch. So if you want to dress it up to go as good as it looks, BMW's got you covered.

The M Performance Parts offerings start with carbon fiber bits! That's right. Sure there's a carbon pack available as an option, but if that's not enough then you can get even more of the woven black composite. How about carbon side sill attachments? Or an M Performance carbon grille? And a "carbon fiber side decorative grille" whatever that is.

They're hand-finished and exposed carbon, that BMW touts as being car wash compatible. Pop the hood, and there's a matching engine cover on offer too.

If that's not enough, and you want some actual performance upgrades, then this one will slow you down. M Performance brake pads that are derived from long-distance racing pads. BMW says they "enable more dynamic, racing-style steering when braking into a bend."

There's also an M Performance Pro steering wheel. Carbon fiber paddles and a carbon and Alcantara trim. The Alcantara grip areas are meant to offer improved steering feel, with the red shift symbols being easier to read and emphasizing the racing theme of the car.

Finally, when you're not driving your M8, keep it protected with an M Performance indoor car cover. It's not carbon fiber, but it is synthetic. A polyester material with a paint-friendly inner layer that BMW says will highlight bits like the grilles and badges, even when covered._a2_
