BMW has now unveiled a whole host of M performance accessories that owners of the new 5 Series owners can retrofit on to their new car. These new accessories will be made available soon after the launch of the Bavarian executive sedan.
Among the performance upgrades available is the M Performance Power and Sound Kit which can be fitted to the new 540i and BMW 540i xDrive.
The kit cranks the six-cylinder engine's performance figures to 355bhp (up 34 bhp) and 500Nm of torque (up by 50Nm) without affecting the emissions figures or the mileage.
The upgrade in power can be heard by the rest of the world as well thanks to a sporty sounding exhaust.
The 540i, 540i xDrive, 530i and 530i xDrive will also have the option of a new stainless steel sports silencer and circular or trapezoid-shaped tailpipe trims in chrome or carbon fiber.
The 530d and 530d xDrive diesel engine variants will have the option of a M Performance Power Kit which adds around 27bhp and 30Nm of torque to the diesel powerplants.
In addition to the performance upgrade options all variants will be available with 20-inch alloy wheels with 245/35 R20 on the front axle and 275/30 R20 at the rear axle.
The Sports brake package will be made available to all variants as well with the cars and includes red 4-piston aluminium calipers up front and single-piston calipers at the rear.
BMW's M division is also offering the M sports package and M aerodynamics package which adds redesigned bumpers, carbon fibre wing mirror caps along with a rear diffuser and carbon fiber rear spoiler.
Also added on is a blacked out kidney grille, side sill stickers and accent strips. Inside, the racing ambience is accentuated by the M Performance steering wheel finished in alcantara as well as new paddle shifters.
What makes these retrofitted upgrades does not have any impact whatsoever on the warranty terms as applicable to the vehicle in question.
