BMW is also offering a comprehensive range of BMW M Performance Parts just in time for the market launch of the new 5 Series, the M5 and M5 Competition in July 2020. They should sharpen the sporty character – even with the M models.
Most of the “M Performance Parts” for the BMW 5 Series and the M5 are available directly from the market launch of the new models. Many parts are made of carbon. Front attachments on both sides and a front splitter made from the high-quality material ensure a sporty look at the front. In addition to a variant of the kidney frame in glossy black, the M-Performance “front grille” is also available in a carbon version.
The exterior mirror caps, the Air Breather on the front fenders and the side skirts from M Performance are also made of carbon. There are two different carbon rear spoilers for the sedans, and a carbon rear diffuser ensures a sporty rear end.
The M-Performance steering wheel is intended to ensure a particularly intensive connection between driver and vehicle. With strikingly shaped Alcantara grip areas, large thumb rests and special relining, it ensures a good grip. There is also a silver-gray, hand-sewn cross-stitch seam and a red 12 o’clock marker.
Instead of the standard leather-covered steering wheel cover, M-Performance parts are available in carbon / leather or carbon / Alcantara. In the “M Performance Steering Wheel Pro”, which is available exclusively for the M5 and M5 Competition, the bezel is in polished carbon and Alcantara, and on the lower clasp there is M Performance lettering. The 12 o’clock marking is made in blue, the decorative stitching in three colors in the BMW M colors.
The carbon shift paddles can also be ordered for the other steering wheels. The M5 and M5 Competition are again reserved for the carbon gear selector switch covers.
The driving dynamics of the M5 and M5 Competition can be increased by an M-Performance sports suspension without changing the damper setting. The coilover suspension allows a lowering by 5 to 20 millimeters. Sports brake pads ensure appropriate deceleration values.
The 20-inch forged wheel with Y-spokes in matt gray is also exclusively intended for the two M5 models. It is manufactured in a complex forging and milling process and offers a special, three-dimensional spoke geometry, a milled M-Performance lettering and a colored M logo. Openings in the spokes reduce air congestion in the wheel. For the normal 5 series, light alloy wheels up to the 20-inch forged wheel are available in a two-tone look, and there are also exhaust systems for the diesel variants.
M Performance also offers accessories. Such a key case made of Alcantara / carbon or tire pockets in M design. A custom-fit and machine-washable version is available for the two M5 models Indoor Car Cover with soft interior that protects the paintwork and printed design elements on the outside.
