They copied the m5 rear? Nothing good has come out of this company in years. How are they still in business?

Because Eastern Europeans would have nothing to spend their money on if they weren't around...

No, nothing good really, they just do their own version of the M235i (with a proper manual gearbox) that laps the Nordschleife faster than an M4 GTS and have a racing heritage that is as good as the factory's...



Cars by AC Schnitzer are tested regularly by German magazines and usually get excellent reviews. It's just they are not very know outside of Europe. However no one can deny their engineering based on actual racing experience. They are also regularly voted by readers of Sport Auto, one of the most respected car magazine in Germany as the best Tuner, year after year...

There are some aggresive design packages, but you can opt only for engine and suspension upgrades.
They build some really special cars too, although quite expensive..

Perhaps it's because I've only seen them make horrible looking exterior components and nasty looking wheels. And now it looks like they've deviated from the atrocious rectangle exhaust that they've made forever and simply decided to copy the f90 m5 rear lol. There are plenty of tuners that are great and i'm sure lots of companies can swap tires, flash tune, improve the suspension, increase the airflow with a new exhaust and swap an auto for a manual on a smaller car like the 2 series and get a better time than the gts. The point being, this company has to make something appealing for many people to spend their money on like exterior components, and it so happens that they look like crap. And now they just copy the M division

Perhaps your tastes are just your tastes as there are plenty in Germany who buy their products... And no, good tuning is good engineering and not just put a few parts together...

Looks like Schnitzer got this one right, at least in the looks dept. They've been in a slump since the early 2000's.
