We've been lucky enough to receive one of the first BMW M2s and we've been busy putting it through its paces on our dyno, on the road and on the track.
Our M2 performance upgrades come in the form of increased power and delivery with our ECU tuning and Akrapovic exhaust systems and improved handling via the superb KW suspension kit. We also offer some subtle improvements to the cars appearance with the KW spacer kit and the Akrapovic range of carbon fibre accessories.
Litchfield ECU Tuning // 400 bhp
For those customers looking for a more complete solution we also offering a fully re-calibrated ECU, which will provide a significant increase in power and torque. This ECU work has already begun on our demonstrator and shares many similarities to our successful M235i ECU re-calibration, which we have been working with since its launch in 2014. We will be releasing detailed performance upgrade information for both our Performance
Akrapovic Evolution Line
We recommend the exquisite Akrapovic Evolution line exhaust system as it's titanium construction provides a reduction in weight and its superior design releases an additional 9hp and 5lbft. As well as delivering power gains throughout the rev range the Evolution Line also improves the M2's appearance and noise. The latter being controllable with the Akrapovic Sound Kit (see below).
In addition to the Evolution exhaust we can also fit the Akrapovic Downpipes, which provides customers with a complete CAT back system. The downpipes feature motorsport grade stainless heat-shielding and removes all the catalytic convertors (and therefore should be used for Track only).
Installation of the downpipes requires a full ECU remap to stop the engine warning light from coming on when it checks the catalyst efficiency.
The extra improvement in exhaust flow will also change the boost control and engine efficiency, which we also recalibrate.
Made from high quality stainless steel and fitted with a sports catalytic converter, this performance upgrade to the Evolution Line exhaust is ECE type-approved and does not need a remap to work on the standard car.
To take advantage of the exhaust flow, we can further increase the power and torque gains with our remap.
Akrapovic offer an optional Sound Kit which enables owners to easily switch between the quiet mode and the full sportier sound. The remote receiver is able to drive the exhausts actuators that open or close the valves at the end of the exhaust system, drivers can use the Sound Remote Controller or the new smartphone app (for iOS and Android) to regulate the valves.
Our technicians have travelled to Germany to receive training at the KW facility so we are able to advise on their range of products and how best to implement them. KW are one of the world leaders in suspension technology and are standard fit on a number of special manufacturer models including the BMW E92 M3 GTS and now the BMW M4 GTS.
The KW 3 way Clubsport coilovers offer a big step up for the M2's handling and provide drivers with the ability to select between their ideal road and track setups. For the more track-minded driver they offer independent control over compression and rebound in both the hi and low speed range. As well as lowering the M2 slightly the KW's deliver a much more precise driving experience.
KW Spacer Kit
The KW spacer kit gives the M2 a slightly wider track that will benefit the cars handling. Aesthetically it helps the wheels fill the flared wheel arches for a more balanced look especially if the car has been lowered.
To accompany the exhaust upgrades Akrapovic can supply a stunning range of carbon products for the BMW M2. To enhance the appearance of the car we can offer a carbon rear diffuser and carbon wing mirror caps. Both are available in either a Gloss or Matt finish.
