Have you been wondering what BMW’s M Performance sub-brand will come up with for the all-new G20 BMW 3 Series? Wonder no more. The biggest BMW dealership in the world, located in Abu Dhabi, has just packaged together many of the possibilities for you.

The G20 3 Series only just went on sale in Australia. It’s available in two forms so far; the 320d and the 330i. But, if you want something more exclusive, and something with a bit more pizazz, but you can’t wait for the next M3, BMW M Performance has more than a few goodies in store for you.

This show car demonstrates the factory upgrade possibilities, using a 330i as the foundation. Almost every area of the sedan is enhanced with M Performance kit. At the front is a pair of black grilles complete with BMW M colours on one side. A lower and deeper front bumper bar is also used, with carbon fibre winglets at the corners.

For the sides there’s a set of 20-inch Y-spoke alloy wheels finished in Ferric Grey and matt black, with some carbon fibre mirror caps to match the front spoiler. A set of bespoke side skirts complete the profile, featuring race-like cutaways towards the front of the car.

Around at the back is where things look even more exciting. M Performance has devised a unique bumper bar insert with a subtle diffuser in the middle, supported by greyed-out sections that surround the exhaust outlets. Up top is a tidy lip spoiler for the boot lid.

It doesn’t look like there are many other enhancements. The interior, for example, looks relatively untouched, featuring the M Sport steering wheel, black leather sports seats, and some textured carbon-like silver decorative trim for the console and dash. The only other obvious touch is the eye-bursting Sunset Orange metallic paint finish for the body.

As mentioned, the new G20 3 Series is on sale in Australia now. Prices start at $67,900 for the 140kW/400Nm 320d, and from $70,900 for the 190kW/400Nm 330i (before on-roads). We suspect these M Performance parts will be available here very soon, if not already.

I like to think that I'm a car fanatic, but more of a driving fanatic. There's nothing better than getting out onto the open road, almost regardless of the car, and enjoying dancing with the controls and gathering up the moving scenery. If I'm not driving I'm either at the gym or sinking a few beers with friends.
