Part of the fun of owning a BMW is adding BMW performance upgrades. It makes the vehicle more unique to you. Some of the most effective ways to add upgrades without spending a ton of money include changing the exhaust, tires, or rims, and giving the engine a tune. 

John’s Auto Pros can help you add these BMW performance upgrades in Escondido, CA!

1. BMW Exhaust Upgrades

Changing the exhaust changes the sound of your BMW. This upgrade is one of the most noticeable that you can do. You’ll be reminded that you upgraded every time you hear it, and so will everyone else since your BMW will not sound stock. 

John’s Auto Pros in Escondido can change the exhaust and add other BMW racing upgrades to make your car unique to you.

2. Tires and Wheels

Other BMW performance upgrades you can add that have a wide range of costs are tires and rims. You can upgrade just the tires, rims, or both, depending on the look you want. 

When choosing a tire, keep in mind what kind of driving you do. Do you want balance and grip? Or do you want speed-rated tires? The tire techs at John’s Auto Pros in Escondido, CA can help you determine which tire is the best for your BMW and driving style.

If you’re looking to change the look of your vehicle, change the rims, too. While good rims are on the pricey side, getting that unique look you’re after is worth it.

3. Suspension

The suspension plays a lot in how the vehicle rides. A sports car is not a luxury car, so the ride will be different. What you gain in performance, you give up in luxury or vice versa.

However, manufacturers realize that most people want a happy medium between performance and luxury. BMW tries to meet that requirement, but there is always room to improve. Or, maybe you don’t care so much about luxury and would prefer a more sporty ride. 

The suspension is a BMW performance upgrade that can take you in several directions. It all depends on what you want. You can replace parts of the suspension (such as coil-overs or shocks and struts) or the entire suspension.

4. ECU Tune

You can make a big difference in performance with an ECU (electronic control units) tune. And, you can choose the level of tuning you want, depending on how much you want to jack up the performance. A tune can significantly boost the power your BMW’s engine puts out.
