MUNICH: BMW is also offering an extensive range of BMW M Performance Parts for the new 5 Series, M5 and M5 Competition.
All components, in addition to the sporty look, also fulfil the functional requirements as regards lightweight construction and aerodynamics.
High quality exterior carbon parts
Numerous BMW M Performance Parts made from high-quality carbon render BMW’s motorsport DNA permanently visible on the BMW 5 Series even off the racetrack.
The M Performance front attachment on both sides and the M Performance front splitter made from the high-grade material provide for a sporty look at the front.
In addition to a variant of the kidney grille surround in high-gloss black, the M Performance front grille is also available in a carbon version.
Likewise, the M Performance exterior mirror caps, M Performance Air Breather in the front fenders and M Performance side sill attachments are made from this high-quality material.
The M Performance rear spoiler Carbon and the M Performance rear spoiler Pro Carbon are both available for the sedans, with the M Performance carbon rear diffusor providing for a sporty looking rear end.
M Performance steering wheel and carbon parts for the interior
The M Performance steering wheel has distinctively shaped Alcantara grip recesses, large thumb-rests and special lining.
Together with the Alcantara, silver-grey, hand-sewn cross-stitching and the red 12 o’clock marking provide for a genuine motor sports atmosphere.
As an alternative to the standard leather-covered steering wheel trim, M Performance carbon/leather or carbon/Alcantara steering wheel trims are also optionally available.
The M Performance steering wheel Pro available exclusively for the BMW M5 and the BMW M5 Competition is fitted with a high-gloss polished carbon and Alcantara trim and the lower clasp bears the M Performance lettering.
The 12 o’clock marking is finished in Motorsport Blue, the tricolour decorative stitching in the BMW M colours.
The M Performance carbon shift paddles are also available for all other steering wheels.
The carbon M Performance gear shift trims are exclusive to the BMW M5 and the BMW M5 Competition.
M Performance sports suspension for M5 models
The outstanding driving dynamics of the BMW M5 and the BMW M5 Competition can be enhanced even further with the M Performance sports suspension without a change of the damper settings.
The coilover suspension allows the vehicle to be lowered by between 5 and 20 millimetres, resulting in a lower centre of gravity, less roll tendency and higher cornering speeds.
The optional M Performance sports brake system ensures corresponding deceleration values under maximum load. 20-inch M Performance forged wheels with Y-spoke design and 863 M Ferric Grey matt finish are also exclusively available for the two M5 models.
These are manufactured using a sophisticated forging and milling process, offering a unique and patented three-dimensional spoke geometry, milled M Performance lettering as well as a coloured M Logo.
Apertures in the spokes reduce air build-up in the wheel, so that less power is required to cut turbulence at high speeds.
Further light alloy wheels comprising the M Performance 20-inch forged wheels in a multi-spoke 732 M bicoloured design are available for 5 Series vehicles.
Moreover, the range of M Performance Parts includes exhaust systems for diesel engines.
M Performance also outside the vehicle
Thanks to special accessories, BMW 5 owners can exhibit their sporty style outside the car as well.
The M Performance key case Alcantara/Carbon is also made of the high-quality materials known from motor racing and serves as a daily commodity and eye-catcher.
The M Performance tyre bag in the characteristic M design is recommended for storing and transporting an additional set of wheels.
Also, the custom-fit breathable and machine-washable M Performance Indoor Car Cover with a soft, paint-protective interior as well as imprinted design elements such as the BMW kidney grille and a large “M” on the roof are available for both M 5 models.
