Earlier this month, BMW of North America announced a “Limited Performance Edition” to close out the remaining E90 3 Series Sedan production.
The limited edition 335i includes Black Kidney Grills and Stage 1 Software that adds 20 horsepower and 32 ft-lbs of torque which brings the performance level .02 faster in 0-60mph. It also includes a Performance Edition badging.
The 335i Limited Performance Edition only available on the 335 sedans in “i” and “xi” models, but requires a Sport package on the “i” and M-Sport on the “xi” models. The option code is ZMZ and will be available to order from the port as well as the dealer level.
Not the actual 335i Performance Edition
Today, BMWNA announces the availability of BMW Performance Edition parts for existing 135i and 335i customers. Pricing to purchase the contents of this edition as a retrofit will be announced in August 2011.
Performance breeds excitement and the BMW Performance Edition for the 2011 335i / xDrive Sedan ensures that new car buyers are in for that extra thrill beyond the outstanding performance that can already be realized with these exciting vehicles. Customers can now option their vehicles with a special BMW Performance Edition (option code ZMZ) that includes an all-new Power Kit, black kidney grilles and a “BMW Performance Edition” badge for only $ 550.
The BMW Performance Edition for the 335i highlights a Power Kit which consists of engine tuning software (no additional hardware):
Increases the engine power output from 300 hp to 320hp and torque from 300 lb ft to 317 / 332 lb ft (manual / automatic transmission); this is the same horsepower rating as the 335is!
Acceleration from 0-60 mph is 0.2 seconds faster than the standard model and 0.5 seconds faster than the standard model from 50 mph to 75 mph.
Emissions and fuel consumption ratings are unaffected by the power upgrade.
Black kidney grilles and a BMW Performance Edition badge will visually identify these Performance Edition vehicles from other 3 Series vehicles.
The BMW Performance Edition is offered only for a limited time on 335i Sedans through the end of 2011 which will ensure that owners of these vehicles will belong to a very special club of performance purists.
BMW is also pleased to announce that the contents of the BMW Performance Edition will be made available to existing 135i and 335i customers. Pricing to purchase the contents of this edition as a retrofit will be announced in August, 2011.
