I seriously doubt they have a wind tunnel. Aero parts from aftermarket companies should be bought mainly to improve the looks, because few of them actually do anything for the carís aerodynamics.

Thatís why you donít see any published numbers (like X amount of downforce at Y mph). Come to think of it, neither do you see them from M Performance.

So installing Akropovic or any other slip-on OPF-back exhaust will void warranty?

Check with your local dealer as individual cases may differ based on circumstances.

I can vouch for the diffuser and rear lip being oem quality. Pictures don't do justice. They look great.

I seriously doubt they have a wind tunnel. Aero parts from aftermarket companies should be bought mainly to improve the looks, because few of them actually do anything for the car’s aerodynamics.

That’s why you don’t see any published numbers (like X amount of downforce at Y mph). Come to think of it, neither do you see them from M Performance.
They post videos on YouTube of driving their ACS-modded cars on the N-ring with blistering lap times that are indeed faster than what the equivalent stock car can do. While I personally can't imagine giving up my arm and leg for what they offer, I do believe they are one of the only aftermarket companies left developing parts that actually increase performance to some degree. Looks are always subjective and I have mixed feelings about their parts catalog.

To me, AC seems to be a European based Dinan-esque tuning company. Is Steve Dinan working with for BND?

Oh man. These parts don't crack? Have you ever owned a cf part? Front lip is going to crack if you hit something don't care if you spend $100 or $10000 on it.

Pretty much no cf aero companies in this euro industry do no wind tunnel test their items. Show me ONE that has published wind tunnel data. Hint you won't find any

Of course you will find!

Their carbon parts don't crack unless through direct impact (pretty obvious). A lot of cheap 'carbon fibre' labelled products cracked after been through enough hot and cold cycles or cracked under tension because of brittleness and inflexibility.

This is great news. The M2 doesn't get enough love from me but this changes things. Not sure about the ironing board on the trunk though.

Does anyone have some prices for this program ?

A bit worry by the warranty: only up to 60000km for M2C so less than for M2 and N55. They don't seem to be as confident on their stuff on that engine...

In the US you can 4 years (extra charge) warranty up to 80,000km...

In Europe, yeah only 3 years max and up to 60,000km only

Guess it's worth it if one tracks their car constantly without having to worry about the SCH

Cost off the top of my head is around 4,000 Euros

Big fan of the AC Schnitzer product line personally, our last M4 got the full ACS4 treatment:

The manufacturers are doing such a good job of developing these cars now that there is very little that companies like Schnitzer can offer to improve on them. Personally, I think the wing looks tacky and as someone who does a lot a track days, I can tell you that most people on here can't even drive a car with 350 hp to 7/10s of its limit so l get a kick out of those who whine about needing more power or that an aftermarket splitter will make a difference when they are parked at a car meet

Ha they're the first ones to test it it seems. The presenter and cameraman are acquintances of mine (Dutch carforum): presenter bought my mate's ex M135i via my dealership and the cameraman traded in his Megane 275 RS for also an M135i.
