At the ongoing 2015 Detroit Auto Show, BMW is showcasing an M235i fully loaded with M Performance Parts. While these parts, consisting of both aesthetic (exterior and interior) and mechanical updates, have been available for the 2 Series coupe, BMW recently announced their arrival on the 2 Series convertible as well.

There’s an addition of stickers on the sides, and the car now sits lower by 20 mm thanks to sports suspension, on 19-inch forged wheels. On the inside, there’s the M Performance steering wheel, Alcantara and carbon bits aplenty, steel pedals and M door sills.

There’s also a Power Kit (for both coupe and convertible) that bumps the power output on the 220d by 14 hp, resulting in a maximum power of 204 hp. As a result, the 0-100 km/h time drops by 0.3 seconds. An optional limited slip differential is also available which helps put the power down to the road more effectively.
