German tuner AC Schnitzer takes BMW 3-Series to Grand Tourismo heights, with an optics package and engine tuning the standard 3.0d from 245 hp to 284 horsepower and 570 Nm of twisting strength.

AC Schnitzer wants to give you a better, fuller experience of the BMW sports saloon and Touring models.

The Aechen-based tuner now has packages for both mainline and M versions of the BMW 3 series sports tourers.

The packages include front and rear spoilers, side skirts, new side mirrors and 18" or 19" allow wheels. Suspension tuning is also available with a new spring kit and sports or racing suspension configurations.

The very scientific sounding AC Schnitzer Control Unit Program also provides some magic for under the bonnet. It takes the 3.0d six-banger from 245 hp and 520 Nm to 284 horsepower and 570 Nm of twisting strength.

Rear L-shaped LED lights and the Schnitzer Twin Sports Rear Silencer for an enhanced Beamer sound round out the goodies here.

Yes, take one of these vehicles on a grand tour vacation and let us know how it works out.
