Jason, is there any press release for these? I’m specifically interested in the description/explanation of the engineering thoughts behind the poisitioning, shape and size of the canards. It seems they link together with an opening in the standard cars aero.

Seems to be aimed at directing air over the front wheels to reduce rotational turbulence but the aero guy is not the most important guy in an F1 team because this is easy so I would like to hear the thoughts from the designer.

Hi,
Just spotted these photos of the M440i.
I think it looks pretty good in this colour combination!

Not yet. The only info so far is that the G22 M Performance Parts will be available from launch.

The only mention of the M Performance Parts range on the G22 is currently limited to a brief overview from the BMW Press Release (attached).

Thanks Law.

I see that “flicks” is BMW language for Canards

I'm so disappointed with how the G22 design came out...adding M performance parts is like putting lipstick on a pig. Nothing can help that front end.
