BMW kidney grille in mesh design.
The BMW kidney grille in mesh design is completely finished in Cerium Grey and has an elaborately designed grid inside. This grid structure, inspired by racing, lends depth and value to the front and sets a high-quality and dynamic accent in the details.
M Aerodynamics package.

M rear spoiler.
The M rear spoiler emphasises the vehicle's athletic silhouette and reduces unwanted aerodynamic uplift. By producing downforce on the rear axle, it provides the vehicle with greater driving stability.
M seat belts.
The M seat belts with belt tensioner and belt force limiter boast an exquisite stitching in the classic M colours and emphasise the high-quality and sporty ambience in the interior.
M Leather steering wheel.
The M Leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons, an M badge and an integrated driver-side airbag is featured in three-spoke design. With a steering wheel rim in leather 'Walknappa' Black with black stitching and contoured thumb rests, it provides a direct, athletic steering experience.
M sports seats for driver and front passenger.
The M sports seats with integrated headrests, deep sitting surface and high side and backrest bolsters offer the driver and front passenger improved support, even in fast turns. In addition, the seat can be adjusted to your individual body size thanks to the integrated backrest width adjustment.
Exclusively for the M135i: slanted tailpipes left and right and in the colour Cerium Grey. In this way, the tailpipes with a diameter of 100 mm make a visual statement and emphasise the sportiness of the M135i.
Interior trim finishers 'Illuminated Boston'.
The interior trim finishers 'Illuminated Boston' with 'Mesh' accent on the dashboard and door trim lend the interior a progressive ambience with a high sense of value. The shimmering pattern of the discreetly backlit finishers creates both an attractive as well as a pleasant atmosphere in the vehicle.
BMW M135i xDrive engine.
A top athlete conveying pure driving pleasure: The M TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder petrol engine in the BMW M135i is particularly powerful because it is equipped with new pistons, a larger turbocharger, optimised intake air routing, a high-performance cooling package and a flap-controlled M exhaust system.
Steptronic Sport transmission.
The 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission offers incredibly sporty gear changes. Whether automatic or manual using gearshift paddles or gear lever – for comfortable coasting or incredibly dynamic driving. In SPORT mode and with the gear lever in the left-hand S/M position, the gear shifts are configured for the maximum performance.
M Sport suspension.
M Sport suspension lowers the vehicle by approximately ten millimetres. It also features shorter suspension springs and tighter damper settings, as well as harder stabilisers. Combined together, they result in an even more direct suspension design, which enables a distinctly sporty driving style.
M Sport brake.
The M Sport brake with multi-piston brake callipers in dark blue and M designation delivers exceptional braking performance. Adapted to the vehicle's very high dynamic potential, it also allows an exceptional athletic driving style and excellent braking on wet surfaces.
M Sports steering.
The M Sports steering with Servotronic creates a direct and agile steering response and reduces steering effort. Your vehicle can be directed more precisely, offering highly athletic handling characteristics, particularly on winding roads.
The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system smoothly and variably distributes drive power to the front and rear wheels for maximum traction, driving dynamics and safety in every driving situation. For even better agility, the electronically controlled power distribution for instance counterbalances oversteer or understeer on bends.
