BMW is not going to miss this year SEMA Las Vegas, and is bringing a complete range of modifications and accesories for its current range.

BMW vehicles that will be displayed throughout the show include a BMW M2 Safety Car, a BMW M3, a BMW X5, a BMW 340i finished in Alpine White with numerous M Performance Parts. Additionally, BMW will present a BMW Individual 740e xDrive iPerformance and finished in BMW Individual Frozen Black Metallic featuring M Performance Parts at SEMA. Also on display at the H&R booth, BMW will showcase one of the five 3.0 CSL campaigned by BMW of North America.

The BMW M Performance rear wing will be making its world premiere at the 2016 SEMA Show. This aerodynamic component is made completely from carbon fiber (wing, side sections, support brackets) and is accentuated with racing stripes, bringing motorsport know-how to the streets for a production M3. Market launch is planned for mid-year on 2017.

One of the most significant innovations being presented by BMW at the 2016 SEMA Show is the new light alloy wheel displayed as a concept wheel on the BMW M3 (19-inch at the front, 20-inch at the rear). This is complemented by the styling of the wheel set, which is shown in Black matte and with “M Performance” lettering on the rim flange and matched with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2. This new M Performance light alloy wheel is expected be available for M2, M3 and M4 in Summer 2017.

The shock absorbers with contrasting red coil springs featured on the BMW M3 exhibited at the BMW booth in Las Vegas are clearly distinctive features of the new adjustable M Performance Parts sports suspension for the BMW M3 and M4. This suspension allows the driver to lower the vehicle’s ride height between 5 and 20 millimeters.

New to the North American market is the M Performance Power & Sound Kit, already available in Germany for the BMW 340i and 440i (including xDrive versions). Now offered for the first time in the US, the Kit comprises a modified engine management software and a higher flowing, electronically controlled valve exhaust system that is actuated in Sport/Sport+ modes via the Driving Dynamic Control Switch.

Moreover, at SEMA in Las Vegas, BMW is presenting the BMW Remote Engine Start for the first time. It will be initially available for models of the BMW 5 Series (F10) as well as the BMW X5 and X6. Thanks to being able to start the engine from a distance, drivers can precondition the inside of the car on exceptionally hot and cold days, as the simultaneously activated automatic climate control system cools down or heats up the interior to the preset temperature.
