Benefits of carbon fibre for BMW M Performance cars
When it comes to your BMW M, you have a lot of different options to consider when it comes to customizing it. There are a number of different carbon fibre products that are available, and each one offers a unique set of benefits.
For example, a carbon fibre spoiler can improve the aerodynamics of your car and make it more stable at high speeds. A carbon fibre diffuser can create downforce and help improve traction, while also enhancing the appearance of your car. And there are many other carbon fibre products that can be installed on your BMW M to enhance its performance and appearance.
So if you’re looking for a way to make your car stand out from the crowd, consider installing some carbon fibre products. They offer a wide range of benefits, and they’re sure to turn heads wherever you go.
An advantage of installing carbon fibre over some other materials on the market is how lightweight and durable the material is which is why it’s the top pick for factory OEM parts on majority of super cars.
Benefits of installing carbon fibre products on your BMW M include:
- Increased downforce and aerodynamic stability
- Improved handling and braking
- Reduced weight for faster acceleration.
Different Carbon Fibre Products for BMW M Exterior
When looking at modern day M cars such as F80 M3, F82 M4, F10 M5, F87 M2, G80 M3 & G82 M4, it’s very easy to find carbon fibre parts. There is many brands and sellers which covers the whole car, unlike other car manufacturers that aren’t as easily modifiable.
Let’s start off with the rear end – A rear carbon fibre spoiler is a MUST as this will really help with aerodynamics and it will give the back of the car a really aggressive look. Combine this with some carbon fibre M exhaust tips and carbon fibre rear diffuser to really complete the rear.
You will also want to finish off the exterior with a carbon fibre front splitter and side skirts to optimise air flow around the car.
Some other nice cosmetic parts include: carbon fibre front grille and wing mirror caps.
Should I use wet or dry carbon fibre for my M car?
You want to make sure you’re getting the best possible products for your BMW M and using a company with proven track record as the carbon fibre quality can vary.
If your main goal is to improve the look of the car then I suggest going with wet carbon fibre because this is more budget friendly while still giving your car the aggressive look it deserves.
For cars that require optimal performance benefits for track days etc then I recommend dry carbon fibre because you will benefit from the weight reduction as well as the products being more durable for the harsh use of the car.
In terms of the aesthetic, you will not see any difference unless looking up close so there really is options for everyone, both methods of production are still considered genuine carbon fibre.
