BMW to Issue 135i and 335i Performance Package
Speaking of performance upgrades, a 335 equipped with the newly-announced package will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in nearly 5.4 seconds. Both the BMW 335i Coupe and the BMW 335i Cabrio can combine the upgrade kit with the seven sport automatic transmission with double clutch offered by the German manufacturer, the aforementioned source writes.
Unfortunately, there's no price information for the time being, but given the fact that it incorporates both software and hardware components, it should go for at least $1,000. Several systems to improve air circulation may be added as well, bmwblog.com adds citing the German press release.
Aside from this news, some people may be wondering if this is indeed a good time to come on the market with a performance upgrade, given the difficult market conditions that seem to convince people to migrate towards less-performance and fuel-economy-aimed models. Nevertheless, the performance kit can be still considered a fairly appealing package, especially for customers who'd like to customize their BMWs without the risk of losing the warranty.
