Almost a month since we first see the new generation 5 Series, BMW unveiled the M Performance package for the iconic sedan. The retrofit components developed especially for the new BMW 5 Series Sedan drawing on BMW M expertise cover the areas of drive, suspension, aerodynamics and cockpit.

For the models BMW 540i and BMW 540i xDrive available directly from the market launch of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan, a BMW M Performance Power and Sound Kit will be available which increases the output of the 6-cylinder in-line petrol engine by 34 hp to 360 hp and the maximum torque by 50 Nm to 500 Nm. This in turn increases response, sprint capacity and pulling power without in any way affecting fuel consumption and exhaust emission figures according to the EU test cycle. 

This additional power is combined with a matching silencer system that makes for a striking sound. Tailpipe trims finished in chrome or carbon fibre are available for the BMW M Performance silencer system.

In addition to powerful engine acoustics, the stainless steel sports silencer also adds a striking visual accentuation at the rear of the vehicle, where it is combined with either circular or trapezoid tailpipe trims in chrome or carbon fibre, depending on the engine variant.

The stainless steel exhaust ducting can also be fitted with circular or trapezoid tailpipe trims depending on the type of diesel engine, again available in either a chrome or carbon fibre finish according to preference. The trapezoid tailpipe trims also come as a separate retrofit option for all variants of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan.

The product range in the area of suspension includes 20-inch BMW M Performance light alloy wheels in a two-level, double-spoke design. The weight-optimised forged wheels are available entirely in the colour Orbit Grey as well as in a Bi-Color finish.

The range includes attachment parts for the front bumper, a rear diffuser and a rear spoiler in carbon fibre finish. As supplementary features, there is also a choice of black side sill attachments and – as an alternative to the carbon fibre version – a rear spoiler and rear diffuser made of polyurethane (PUR). The components made of the light high-tech material carbon fibre are crafted by hand.

For a racing-inspired cockpit ambience there is a BMW M Performance sports steering wheel in Alcantara with red central marking in the 12 o’clock position and silver-grey cross-stitch seam: this is expected to be available in summer 2017. The BMW M Performance sports steering is also combined with shift paddles in vehicles fitted with an 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission.
