MM Performance tunes the BMW M550d xDrive Sedan

Article by Christian A., on October 22, 2013

Usually, diesel-powered cars are not considered sports cars and tuning companies don’t like them, but not this one. As a result, Polish-based MM Performance took the BMW M550d and decided to create a new tuning programme for it. Vorsteiner was the company chosen for the front lip spoiler, rear roof spoiler, a carbon fiber air diffuser and the boot lid spoiler.

The vehicle also comes with a new set of Twist gloss-black Vorsteiner VS-340 wheels wrapped in high-performance Continental tires. Still, Vorsteiner was not the only brand chosen by MM Performance as the company also used official BMW M Performance parts such as the carbon fiber side mirrors and the body stripes and the carbon fiber front grille.

BMW M Performance parts are also found at the interior where the car features an M Sport Alcantara steering wheel, centre console and riser. H&R provided a new set of springs that brings the M550d 35 millimeters closer to the ground. The tri-turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine found under the hood delivers in the standard model an impressive 381 hp and 740 Nm of torque, but thanks to a new powerbox from Hartge the it was boosted to 430 hp and 850 Nm of torque.
