M Performance accessories extend to the BMW 4 Series’ cabin, which features a sports steering wheel with Race Display and LEDs, carbonfibre and alcantara trim, high-grade steel pedals with specially designed footrest, and exclusive floor mats.

The M Performance enhancements are available on BMW 420d, 428i and 435i grades, each benefitting from unique mechanical upgrades including engine output boosts courtesy of software tweaks and new exhaust systems.
