So far we saw some images of the new M Sport package for the redesigned 2012 BMW 1-Series Hatchback, which have already surfaced online.
Now we have the latest spy shots, which reveal that the automaker looks to be expanding its M Sport package by targeting the aftermarket business. We can clearly see that new features seen on this prototype reveal a racing stripe package running the length of the car, as well as blacked out headlights and grille, and special badging.
Of course, it could just be the latest version of BMW’s Performance Edition kit launched for the existing 335i and 135i models. We expect the exterior tweaks to come with interior badging, equipment and upholstery choices. There is also possibly a tweaked, sportier suspension setup, but we’ll see these at the final release. This new package should include some new pieces such as a BMW M shifter, M steering wheel and M footrest or carbon fiber trim, which is also likely to be available.
Finally, even if the 1-Series Hatchback will remain out of U.S. reach, for the moment at least, there’s every chance the look here could be duplicated on the re-designed U.S.-spec 1-Series Coupe and Convertible when they make their debut next year.
