The new BMW M2 is barely on the radar of most supercoupe shoppers just a month after its official reveal, but BMW is not waiting around to juice its new baby with M Performance Parts.
The M2 and M4 wearing swish new design upgrades were the centerpieces of the SEMA 2015 show: gloss-black detailing, M color body decals, and even a carbon-fiber spoiler and exhaust system for the M4.
The M2’s mods so far are purely aesthetic, and we have not seen the full car yet — just glimpses of its black kidney grilles so far.
The M4 Performance Parts go on sale shortly — by the end of 2015 is expected — but the M2 upgrades wait for the car’s official arrival stateside around April 2016.
See the detailed breakdown of the parts available for both cars in this initial round of M Performance Parts below in the official blurb. Those looking for more horsepower will be disappointed: just the M4 exhaust actually increases pace.

BMW M Performance. New inscription, new parts.
Woodcliff Lake, N.J. – November 3, 2015… The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) in Las Vegas is regarded worldwide as the leading trade show for customization and sports tuning. The new products presented at SEMA to trade experts influence the entire scene and set trends. At this year’s SEMA show, November 3- 6 2015, BMW is presenting a selection of distinctively sports-oriented BMW M Performance Parts to the trade fair audience. Located on the lower level of South Hall (Stand 40247), trade fair visitors will see a BMW M Performance modified BMW M4 Coupé as well as the first BMW M Performance Parts for the new BMW M2 Coupé.
The new “M Performance” inscription is to be seen on selected parts. The inscription represents the dynamic image of BMW M Performance as well as the l functional orientation of all BMW M Performance Parts. This can be seen on the display vehicles as they have been fitted with these new and dynamic parts. Initially, the new inscription will appear on BMW M Performance Parts on the BMW M2 Coupé and BMW M4 Coupé but will eventually be used across the entire BMW M Performance product portfolio.
BMW M4 Performance Parts

The BMW M4 Coupé is regarded as the ultimate driving machine and the benchmark for sporty driving dynamics in its class. This is supported by its motor racing style appearance and can be further enhanced through the new BMW M Performance aerodynamic components. The front inserts in high-end carbon fiber (CFRP) and the BMW M Performance front trim grille in high-gloss black give the face of the BMW M4 Coupé an even more striking expression. The lateral BMW M Performance side sill attachments made of polyurethane (PUR) with the new “M Performance” inscription emphasize the dynamic elegance of the BMW M4 Coupé. BMW M Performance exterior mirror caps in carbon fiber finish, the lateral BMW M Performance side gills in high-gloss black in the M gill elements and BMW M Performance motor racing stripes applied to the body perfectly support the dynamic side view.
The rear of the car, a BMW M Performance carbon fiber diffuser with three strikingly shaped bars derived from motorsports and a newly designed BMW M Performance through-flow carbon fiber rear spoiler highlight the powerful rear section of the BMW M4 Coupé. The new “M Performance” inscription on the lateral end plates of the rear spoiler as well as the motorsports stripes on the spoiler constitute a further distinctive visual highlight.
