That's a lot of money for something that's not exactly aesthetically pleasing.
The M Performance center exhaust for the new BMW M2 costs a staggering $8,275, according to a new entry on the Bimmerpost forum.
A member of the community, who goes by "Game," shared the complete price list for several M Performance accessories. The controversial center quad exhaust finish is the most expensive option on the list, but according to the description, it has to be bundled with the rear diffuser. You can't have one without the other, it seems.
While the M Performance parts aren't to everyone's taste, there's no denying some owners will love the unique upgrades. The carbon fiber front bumper attachment is the second most expensive component at $2,270 and is followed closely by the matte carbon seat backs at $1,560.
If you want the lightweight material on your M2's air inlets, you'll have to fork over a substantial $1,045. Not all of the optional accessories are as expensive, with several coming in under four figures. For example, $775 buys you a carbon fiber rear spoiler, while door sills and an antenna in the same material will set buyers back $350 and $330, respectively.
Aside from the carbon seat backs, the only other interior accessory is the Alcantara-trimmed armrest, priced at $455. Selecting all the available M Performance goodies will set you back an eye-watering $15,060 - about the same price you'd pay for a well-used Toyota Corolla.
As a reminder, the M2 retails from $62,200 before options.
That means an M2 with all the accessories would retail for $77,660, which is more than you'd pay for an M3 or M4.
BMW USA also offers a carbon package for its smallest M offering, and for $9,900, the automaker will adorn the sports coupe with a carbon fiber roof, interior trim, and bucket seats. By the time the M Performance accessories are made available, we're guessing more items will join the catalog. Previously shown components include carbon fiber mirror caps and CFRP exterior parts.
The Mexican-built Bimmer is also expected to be made available with center-lock wheels, but BMW said in October that the race-inspired alloys are still under development. The new 3.0 CSL wears this wheel design, so perhaps the automaker will borrow from the ultra-limited coupe.
The prices listed here are not official figures from BMW, but we expect the official pricing to align with the source.
