    Having just put a larger M3 front bar in place in my car, I'm a bit puzzled by this. Why would smaller bars in a performance-oriented car have been seen as a plus?

    Also: are the trim rings on the gauges part of the ZHP package?

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Because larger bars don't necessarily equal higher performance. BMW's engineers were looking for a certain balance or feel so they decided to make a few changes. It's the sum of the parts that matter.
