New BMW M Performance parts adorn the exterior and interior of the newly-facelifted (LCI) G30 BMW 5 Series as well as F90 BMW M5 and M5 Competition. They also enhance the handling characteristics and aerodynamics of these high-performance sedans.
Exterior Carbon Fiber Parts
Numerous BMW M Performance Parts made from high-quality carbon render BMW’s motorsport DNA permanently visible on the BMW 5 Series even off the racetrack: The M Performance front attachment on both sides and the M Performance front splitter made from the high-grade material provide for a sporty look at the front.
The M Performance front grille, the exterior mirror caps, Air Breather in the front fenders, side sill attachments, and rear spoilers, etc. are all available in carbon fiber.
Steering Wheel & Interior Carbon Fiber Parts
The M Performance steering wheel features distinctively shaped Alcantara grip recesses, large thumb-rests, and special lining for maximum grip and a direct steering feel at all times. Together with the Alcantara, silver-grey, hand-sewn cross-stitching, and the red 12 o’clock marking offer a genuine motor sports atmosphere. M Performance carbon/leather or carbon/Alcantara steering wheel trims are also available.
The M Performance Steering Wheel Pro is exclusive for the M5 and the M5 Competition. Fitted with a high-gloss polished carbon and Alcantara trim, its lower clasp bears the M Performance lettering. The 12 o’clock marking is finished in Motorsport Blue, the tricolor decorative stitching in the BMW M colors.
Suspension, Brakes, Wheels, and Exhausts
Exclusive to the M5 and M5 Competition is the M Performance Sports Suspension. The coilover suspension allows the vehicle to be lowered by between 5 and 20 millimetres, resulting in a lower centre of gravity, less roll tendency, and higher cornering speeds.
The optional M Performance sports brake system ensures exceptional deceleration values under maximum load.
20-inch M Performance forged wheels with Y-spoke design and 863 M Ferric Grey matt finish are also exclusively available for the two M5 models. Further light alloy wheels comprising the M Performance 20-inch forged wheels in a multi-spoke 732 M bicoloured design are available for 5 Series vehicles.
Last but not least, the range of M Performance Parts includes exhaust systems for both petrol and diesel engines.
The facelifted F90 M5 and M5 Competition can be exclusively equipped with the M Performance engine cover carbon upgrade kit for enhanced "inner beauty".
M Performance tyre bag and indoor car cover feature unique BMW Motorsports design elements. The tyre bag is available for all models, while the indoor car cover is exclusive to the M5 models.
