M Performance Parts

My dealer got two allocation slots and it looks like I may be getting one. Awaiting final details for ordering and confirmation.

Is/Has anyone added M Performance parts or is it even possible on an M2CS?

I am thinking side skirt winglets to match the front lip spoiler at the minimum, but there are others that look tantalizing.

I recall reading that the engineers said don't mix M Perf aero parts on this car as it wasn't designed for it.

Thanks - I had not heard that.

I was thinking of CF side grilles, winglets and the exhaust tips (if even possible).

I want to move over my digital MPE steering wheel from my F80. I've also read the aero shouldn't be mixed but suspect that would only make a marginal difference at most at very high track speeds.

I don't see any harm in getting the side winglets....doubtful they do anything aero wise, but they do tie up the look with the front lip.

As far as mixing aero parts, I read that if you get the CS rear deck spoiler, you should get the CS front lip too. Doing one or the other is ill-advised according to BMW.

The effect of these aero devices won't appreciably change the dynamics of the car on the street. You'll see many cars running spoiler but no front lip - they haven't flown off the street yet. On the track you may notice a slight unbalance but realistically you can fix that by sticking any front lip on. The vice-versa is true, although more uncommon as the spoiler is the easier mod.

I inquired about the M Performance Exhaust getting installed at port, BMW just got back to me and said it is not an option for the CS. In fact they claim "the factory installed exhaust is enhanced from the previous VIA option"

There is also rumor that the factory exhaust is a single piece and would need to be cut to replace any portion.

Also in the interests of good taste.

The side wing are the only part I would consider putting on and I might actually move them over from my OG. What other M perf parts would you replace the stock ones with?

So... in summary: If you fit anything that isn't listed as a CS Option, you will reduce the value of your purchase to scrap as far as future owners are concerned. Its not about you, it's about the future owners.

Front fenders would be so cool, but I'll never do it.

This is what I have asked for (still waiting for approval or not):

- Carbon fiber front grille:
- Carbon fiber side skirt winglets
- Carbon fiber side grilles
- Carbon fiber DCT/hand brake covers
- Carbon fiber tailpipe finishers
- Stainless steel pedal covers

Going to bail (and get from IND) on the DCT and parking brake parts and skip the exhaust tips.

I am still on the fence with the winglets. I like the look, but is cleaning/dirt an issue? Detailing the body looks like it would be a problem too. It looks like they get glued to the car with adhesive as well.

What are others experiences that have these?

Winglets are installed with 5 rivets under the car, and adhesive. The adhesive basically just allows u to line up the holes for the rivets and holds it in place as u secure it. Cleaning is a little challenge but buy a wooly wormit and it fits right in between the body and wing. I have them in my OG never an issue
