BMW M2 UPGRADES

We were lucky enough to receive one of the first BMW M2s in the country and we've been busy putting it through its paces.


The standard M2 is pretty special, but we felt we could make a number of subtle improvements. Our M2 spent many hours on our dyno and on the road and we've been able to push its limits on a number of track testing sessions.


We've put together a Litchfield M2 Performance Package of upgrades, which comes in the form of increased power and delivery with our ECU tuning and Milltek (or Akrapovic) exhaust system and improved handling via the superb AST suspension kit & spacers.



Autocar - 9th January 2018 - Litchfield BMW M2 2018 review:

"Litchfield’s package of upgrades for the BMW M2 is so expertly judged and so brilliantly executed that this now feels like the car the M2 should have been all along."


In addition to our performance package we also offer some subtle improvements to the cars appearance with the KW spacer kit and the Akrapovic range of carbon fibre accessories.


We also offer a range of other tuning products for the M2. So if you feel like giving your M2 something extra; we're here to help!

Litchfield M2 Performance Package - 420 bhp


Our upgrade package for the M2 consists of improved handling through the excellent AST 2-way adjustable suspension, more power and less weight with a Milltek exhaust and a larger intercooler from Forge Motorsport. Our custom ECU remap delivers 420 bhp and 420 lbft with the 420 bhp coming between 5,500rpm-6,200rpm and 420 lbft from 2,200rpm.


In addition we offer the Akrapovic Evolution titanium exhaust, which produces similar power but with a further weight reduction. We can also offer the more track oriented KW Variant 3 suspension.


Each component upgrade is available individually, but as it's our preferred setup we offer all 3 as a package with a slightly reduced package price.



Litchfield ECU Tuning



Our fully re-calibrated ECU will provide a significant increase in power and torque. Similar to our successful M235i ECU re-calibration, which we have been working with since its launch in 2014. We've fine tuned the calibration on our in-house Dyno as well as living with the setup day to day on the road and combined with our various track testing sessions, we feel we have developed the ultimate software upgrade.

Akrapovič Evolution Line - Titanium



We recommend the exquisite Akrapovič Evolution line exhaust system as it's titanium construction provides a reduction in weight and its superior design releases an additional 9hp and 5lbft. As well as delivering power gains throughout the rev range the Evolution Line also improves the M2's appearance and noise. The latter being controllable with the optional Akrapovič Sound Kit (see below).

Litchfield / AST BMW M2 suspension kit



We first started working with Dutch suspension company, AST, in 2003 with the creation of our Subaru Type-25 chassis upgrades. We have worked closely ever since and more recently on our BMW M235i we featured their latest 2-way adjustable suspension kit. Being so impressed with the cars ride quality and handling improvements we again turned to AST to help us produce a new suspension kit for our BMW M2 demonstrator. After a number of months of testing on both road and track we are delighted to release the latest M2 suspension kit which will transform both the ride and handling of the car as well as giving it a more aggressive appearance.




The AST 2-way dampers allow the driver to quickly adjust the firmness of the damping using the CNC adjustors. The ride height can also be adjusted to suit the drivers local conditions and each kit is supplied with upgraded drop links. Having used the dampers extensively on our own demonstrator we have developed a damper position, ride height setup and wheel alignment geometry which will suit most owners. The car will be much more supple on the road and make long distance journeys more enjoyable whilst still having razor shape handling response, improved body control and greater driver feedback.


For owners looking to take their M2 on track regularly we can also installed solid top mounts for even more adjustment and driver feed back (photos show kits with topmounts installed).


If you would like to experience the improvements our AST suspension kit can make to your BMW M2 then please feel free to book in for a test drive.

Our technicians have travelled to Germany to receive training at the KW facility so we are able to advise on their range of products and how best to implement them. KW are one of the world leaders in suspension technology and are standard fit on a number of special manufacturer models including the BMW E92 M3 GTS and now the BMW M4 GTS. If your M2 will be spending most of its time on the track we would recommend the KW Variant 3 suspension.

M2 Akrapovic Track Downpipe

For customers looking for the ultimate in performance and noise from their M2 engine on track we are able to offer the Akrapovic DE-CAT downpipe which removes the restriction from the standard catalytic converter. The removal of the CAT will require a full ECU remap to remove the warning light.  Typically adding a DE-CAT Downpipe will increase power by 10-20bhp over the standard system.
