BMW has unveiled its range of M Performance parts and accessories that will be available for the new 5 Series and i5, giving the luxury sedan a sportier look and enhanced performance.
Buyers will be able to option up to a range of enhancements, with a new M Sport Package or M Sport Package Pro adding carbon fibre trimmings. There’s a four-part M Performance front spoiler, matching carbon side skirts and a carbon rear lip spoiler and three-part diffuser underneath. Special decals are also being presented.
Some carbon fibre side mirror caps and an M Performance Aramid antenna cover complete the body upgrades. A range of special M Performance light alloy wheels will also be available to complete the look, with 19-inch and up to 22-inch rim sizes.
These can hide an upgraded braking package with six-piston front calipers and single-piston at the back, with red-painted calipers and M logos. The discs are internally ventilated and feature cross-drilled holes for improved cooling.
It’s not all about the exterior, though. M Performance has come up with a range of parts for the interior as well. Options include M Performance carbon fibre door sill plates, special velour floor mats, and an M Performance key case made from Nappa leather and Alcantara.
The 2024 BMW 5 Series and i5 are due to land in Australia later in 2023. Three variants will be available from launch, including the 520i, the i5 eDrive40, and the i5 M60. The M5 and M5 Touring are yet to be unveiled. Prices start from the following (excluding on-roads):
2024 BMW 520i: $114,900
