From our experience with German premium carmaker BMW, we all know that it can make luxury cars sporty by offering matching accessories through its BMW M Performance unit. Now, BMW is bound to release the latest iteration of its new 2017 BMW 5 Series Sedan (G30) in February 2017. And it won’t be long as after that, BMW will allow customers to further customize their new 5 Series with sporty parts from BMW M Performance.
Many customers and would-be-customers were left mesmerized when BMW unveiled the latest generation of the BMW 5 Series in early October. The 2017 BMW 5 Series – dubbed as G30 -- represents a whole new level of luxury from the marquee. For its dynamically aerodynamic exterior, comfortably luxurious interior and state-of-the-art chassis systems to new technologically advanced features and systems, as well as new powerful and technically modern four- and six-cylinder gasoline engines. It also extensively employs aluminum, high-strength steel and magnesium. Overall, the new 2017 BMW 5 Series is both dynamic and elegant.
However, the conditions around the new BMW 5 Series have started to heat up, especially as BMW is now introducing sporty elements and features from M Performance -- available for all variants of the 5 Series and are designed to make look and performance sportily. These elements -- designed with characteristic M precision -- boost the athletic level of the 5 Series in terms of style, agility and response.
They will be offered a few weeks after BMW launches the new 5 Series. For instance, customers may want to enhance their 5 Series with black BMW M Performance radiator grille and black BMW M performance bars for the brake air channels as well as a carbon fiber BMW M Performance exterior mirror caps. Side sill stickers with M Performance inscription and BMW M Performance accent strips are also available.
Additionally, customers may avail of attachment parts for the front bumper, a rear diffuser and a rear spoiler – all in carbon fiber finish. Customers may opt for black side sill attachments, a rear spoiler and rear diffuser made from polyurethane (PUR). Interior upgrades include a BMW M Performance sports steering wheel -- in Alcantara with red central marking and silver-grey cross-stitch seam – that is complemented by shift paddles in vehicles installed with an 8-speed Steptronic sports gearbox.
Power upgrades are also available for specific models. For example, a BMW M Performance Power and Sound Kit will be made available for the BMW 540i and BMW 540i xDrive, powering up the their 6-cylinder in-line petrol engine by 25 kW (34 hp) in output to 265 kW (360 hp) and by 50 Nm in torque to 500 Nm.
With these upgrades, the responses, acceleration and pulling powers of these models were enhanced without affecting their related efficiencies. BMW M Performance is also bound to offer a Power Kit for the BMW 530d and the BMW 530d xDrive models in summer 2017. BMW M will also launch the new BMW M550i xDrive weeks after the release of the 5 Series in February 2017.
