It was always going to happen, wasn’t it? Yes, German tuner Dähler has gone to work on the BMW X2 line-up, subtly updating the new crossover’s styling and extracting a little more oomph from its range of engines.
The firm offers a choice of uprated exhaust systems, along with sports suspension and a set of custom wheels. The range of exhausts on offer for the X2 includes various tailpipe designs.
For those who want improved handling, Dähler offers a sports spring kit that lowers ride height, reduces sway and apparently deals better with crosswinds. This suspension pairs with Dähler’s custom 20- and 21-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres.
The application of the company’s DME and DDE engine management systems bring about the following increases in output: the 118i moves from 103 kW/220 N.m to 116 kW/264 N.m; the 120i from 141 kW/280 N.m to 164 kW/340 N.m; the 18d from 110 kW/330 N.m to 128 kW/390 N.m; and the 20d from 140 kW/400 N.m to 161 kW and 450 N.m.
