At this week's SEMA Show in Las Vegas, BMW introduced a selection of performance parts for the new M5. Many of these features will be available when the vehicle launches in the spring, while others will arrive in July 2018. BMW also introduced a special edition M3 to celebrate the model's 30th year in the U.S. market.

BMW M Performance will offer motorsport stripes in M colors as well as a host of aerodynamic components made from carbon fiber for the BMW M5. These include a carbon-fiber rear spoiler and rear diffuser as well as side sill attachments and a newly designed front attachment.

Other M Performance goodies include a new coilover suspension and red coil springs, carbon ceramic brakes, and a new sports exhaust system with a titanium rear muffler. A carbon-fiber engine cover extension kit pops out to the keen observer when the hood is opened. Another feature records driving data and lets drivers display it on their smartphone. The Drive Analyzer records everything from engine data to speed, gear engagement, the use of accelerator and brake pedals, and lateral acceleration. An optional Tracfix action camera holder fits to the threaded bush of the towing lug to capture laps on film.

When it comes to the interior, BMW offers an M Performance steering wheel with Alcantara grip and a carbon fiber steering wheel cover. There are also newly designed carbon-fiber shift paddles and a carbon-fiber shift lever cover. An M Performance LED logo projector is also available.

To celebrate 30 years of the M3 in the U.S. market, BMW is selling a one-of-one model. It's red on the outside, but open the doors and you'll find a bold interior with red, white, and blue materials. Maybe the most appetizing part of the look are the bespoke golden wheels, which are surrounded by Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

The 2018 BMW M3 "30 Years American Edition" is based off the M3 Competition Package, which makes 444 hp. It comes with a six-speed manual transmission as well as a host of M Performance Parts, including the exhaust system, adjustable sports suspension lowering the ride height between 5 and 20 mm, and a rear wing handmade from carbon fiber.

So how much does this one-off M3 cost? BMW is selling it for $131,105.
