BMW 528i M Performance Edition introduced

By CARSIFU | 19 July 2016

CYBERJAYA: BMW Malaysia has announced a limited 528i M Performance Edition, which will go on sale from this weekend to mark the 100th anniversary of the brand.

And aptly enough, only 100 units of the limited edition would be available, each priced at RM363,800.

The limited edition gets a blackened kidney grille and the M Performance Aerodynamics package

The front bumper is adorned with the signature M Performance carbon fibre highlights; in the rear with the M Performance carbon fibre rear spoiler and at the sides with the special carbon fibre side skirt films with the signature M Performance stripes.

Bear in mind that this current F10 5 Series is ageing and will be superseded by the G30 5 Series, which will reportedly make its world debut at the 2017 Detroit auto show. The G30 addresses a key point that the F10 is one of the heaviest in its segment, and the G10 will be better, being lightened for better ride and performance. An obvious way to shed meaningful weight in the car is to use carbon fibre parts as in the 7 Series. At the same time, BMW is testing out the G30-based M5, which is expected to roll out by early 2018.

A well-tested strategy among car makers to give outgoing models a last hurrah is to repackage it and try to clear stock before it goes out of production.
