German tuner Prior Design has finally gotten its work round to updating their BMW 3 Series to feature the F30 moniker. After all, the Bavarians aren’t known for slow sales.
The newer version of the 3 Series is a bit larger, much sharper looking and features new standards for refinement and performance.
Prior Design’s new package certainly keeps the refinement levels high. The design fits in perfectly and the craftsmanship is at some seriously good rankings.
What about the all important performance, how does it stack up once the Prior Design package now goes on? Is it still a sharp greyhound or has it started napping on the rug?
As the tuning company claims, the new kit was, erm, refined with aerodynamic principles in mind. That should help with stability and giving the driver confidence to push it.
Material used for this package is a blend of both thos factors. It’s high quality Dura-Flex plastic. The quality makes for refinement and the light weight helps performance.
By how much? It’s genuinely hard to tell but we have to appreciate that both changes will be marginal. It’s not like BMW uses coarse lead to build its bumpers.
Prior Design currently offer both bumpers, side skirts and a small rear wing. They can be purchased individually and summing it all up comes in at under 2000 euros.
The new alloy wheels displayed here are not part of the package (and they’re strikingly similar to some AMG units), they’re used to help the aesthetics of the F30 as much as possible.
