2012 Geneva: AC Schnitzer ASC3 Turbo is a 291-hp BMW 328i
AC Schnitzer has unveiled its BMW 328i tuning kit at the Geneva Motor Show with a decent boost in power and some sleek exterior upgrades.
Exterior mods include a chrome front grille, front spoiler, rear and roof spoiler, rear skirt extension, and designer strips that are much more subdued then that of the M5 tuner. A selection of wheels are available which can be added at either 18 or 20 inches in size, as well as a sports suspension kit.
On the inside, AC Schnizter offers up an aluminum trim kit for the pedals, foot rest, dashboard and “iDrive” controller.
A remapped ECU and a sports exhaust take the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder’s power from 240hp and 258.1 lb-ft of torque up to 291hp and 302 lb-ft of torque. The power upgrade gives the 328i a new 0-62mph time of 5.7 seconds, while the top speed remains electronically governed.
