  • Signature M side vent
  • Broader wheel arches to accomodate larger track
  • "Ducktail" CSL style rear trunk (integrated spoiler)
  • Rear valance/diffuser area takes its direction from the standard 135i but with open ducts for aerodynamic purpose
  • Signature M quad exhaust pipes
  • Reinforced carbon fiber roof
