Now that there’s a new BMW 3 Series on the market it was only a matter of time before BMW tuning specialist, AC Schnitzer, came out with a conclusive aftermarket kit for private owners. The new offering comprises visual enhancements, both insinde and out, while hinting at the direction future products will take.
Aerodynamic offerings for the G20 3 Series include a front splitter and side skirts for cars with M-Technik, and rear skirt protection foil. Sport carbon, chrome or black exhaust pipe extensions and AC Schnitzer branding completes the custom look. Changes in the cabin are subtler, with gear shift paddles, pedal boots, footrest and a key holder, all hewn from aluminium, among the offerings.
Changes to the chassis include a front and rear spring kit that lowers the ride height by 20 mm. This is accompanied by a set of 19- or 20-inch bi-colour or anthracite alloy wheels. 19-inch wheels are fitted with 225/40 R19 front and 255/35 R19 rear tyres while the 20-inch wheels get a set of 225/35 R20 front and 255/30 R20 rear tyres.
AC Schnitzer has revealed that a sports rear silencer for the 320i and 330i with two tail pipes for either side of the bumper is currently in development alongside a sports suspension kit, lowering the ride height by 30 mm. Additionally, front spoiler and splitter elements, as well as a rear boot and roof spoiler, are also currently in the works.
