The exhaust tailpipes are finished in black chrome, while the 128ti adds a carbon-rear diffuser.

 While the 118i Mzansi edition comes equipped with 18-inch M light alloy wheels, the 128ti gets larger 19-inch wheels. Behind both sets of wheels are distinctive red M Sport brake calipers. In terms of colour, buyers can choose alpine white, skyscraper grey and black sapphire. Red metallic and misano Bbue metallic are exclusive to the 118i and the 128ti can be acquired in  a menacing shade of storm bay blue metallic.
