In past years, BMW enthusiasts in America have been finding ways to import M Performance Parts for their vehicles. More recently the German automaker has made it easier for Americans to get their hands on the M-branded upgrades.

Now available in the U.S. are M Performance Parts for the 2013 BMW 3- and 5-Series models, allowing owners to give their sedans a much more aggressive style inside and out.

For the smaller 3-Series, a new front splitter, rocker panel blades, rear diffuser, rear spoiler and decals are available to spice up the exterior. The interior meanwhile can be outfitted with a carbon fiber e-brake handle with an Alcantara boot, custom floor mats, stainless steel pedal accents and an M Performance Electronic Steering Wheel. Along with the Alcantara finish and flat-bottom shape on the wheel, it allows for access to three information modes: Efficient Dynamics Mode, Sport Mode, and Race Mode.

Suspension upgrades are also available for the 3-Series with new springs lowering the sedan by 0.4 inch. 20-inch wheels are also available as an option, while performance upgrades include an M Performance exhaust system. Improving the brakes is an upgraded system from Brembo which features four-piston calipers in the front, two-piston calipers in the rear and larger rotors.

Those that enjoy the larger of the two models can outfit their 5-Series with an M Performance carbon fiber front splitter and rear diffuser. The M Performance carbon fiber trim line will also be available as an option, alongside the previously mentioned Electronic Steering Wheel. Wheels and an exhaust system are also available for the 5-Series, though BMW M did not announce any suspension options.
