AC Schnitzer, the specialist BMW German tuner has announced that they will be getting their own stand at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in order to give us a bit of a treat.
They will be showcasing a specially tuned up version of the latest BMW 3 Series, the F30 model.
It’s a pretty good looking machine but there are a few issues with what AC Schnitzer think the new 3 Series should be like.
The biggest of which is the fact that you’re not getting any performance or technical upgrades of any kind in time for the Geneva Motor Show. They say they are under development but will come in later.
It’s almost fair, since the Geneva Motor Show isn’t exactly a rolling expo so apart from reading a spec sheet, that stuff couldn’t excite you too much there.
What you do get to see is the newly designed aerodynamic body kit, the obligatory sports exhaust system as well as plenty of wheel combinations in sizes starting at 18 and going all the way up to 20 inches.
Inside the F30 BMW 3 Series, AC Schnitzer will be offering a sportier steering wheel, aluminium pedals and custom floor mats and accessories.
Really not a bad offering but I was thinking traditional tuners would take on the F30 3 Series by deleting the headlight parts that are on the verge of touching the kidney grills.
Maybe Alpina will do that at a later time. Those tech kits will come along later and, joy of joy for Europeans, will not leave diesel owners behind.
