The New 2017 BMW 5-Series M Performance Parts drawing on BMW M GmbH expertise cover the areas of drive, suspension, aerodynamics and cockpit, enabling an individually tailored enhancement in terms of athletic visual style, agile driving response and sporty interior design.
2017 BMW 5-Series M Performance Parts Interior. The interior of 2017 BMW 5-Series M Performance Parts inspired from 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.
2017 BMW 5-Series M Performance Parts Exterior. The exterior components developed to optimise aerodynamics have been designed with characteristic M precision to match the new BMW 5-Series Sedan. Model-specific BMW M Performance aerodynamic components are available to supplement the M sports package, an ex-works option, and the M aerodynamics package, which is a retrofit option. 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 elaborately crafted by hand.
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. An especially striking feature here is the combination of milled elements and burnished finish on the edge of the rim. The two-colour wheels undergo a separate milling process after being finished in matt black, which means that the aluminium surface becomes visible again. The BMW M Performance light alloy wheels are combined with mixed tyres in the sizes 245/35 R20 on the front axle and 275/30 R20 at the rear axle.
2017 BMW 5-Series M Performance Parts Engines and Transmission. As of summer 2017, a BMW M Performance Power Kit will be offered for the models BMW 530d (combined fuel consumption: 4.9 – 4.5 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 128 – 118 g/km) and BMW 530d xDrive (combined fuel consumption: 5.4 – 5.0 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 142 – 132 g/km). This increases the output of the in-line 6-cylinder diesel engine by 20 kW/27 hp to 215 kW/292 hp and the maximum torque by 30 to 650 Nm. In these models, too, the first-hand boost in power optimises acceleration capacity and elasticity while retaining the same fuel consumption and emission figures according to the EU test cycle.
There is a BMW M Performance silencer as a separate retrofit option for the models BMW 540i, BMW 540i xDrive, BMW 530i (combined fuel consumption: 5.9 – 5.5 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 136 – 126 g/km) and BMW 530i xDrive (combined fuel consumption: 6.4 – 6.0 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 147 – 137 g/km). 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.
