After the BMW X6, 1 Series and 3 Series, now the facelifted BMW X5 (E70 LCI) can be retrofit with optional parts from the BMW Performance catalog.
As seen on the other models as well, the BMW performance enhance the already existing dynamic look of the X5. Besides the typical aerodynamic components, such as front and rear apron, and side skirts, the Performance program also includes a rear spoiler.
To give the X5 an even more unique look, there are also special 21 inch wheels offered in the BMW Performance catalog.
For more sporty sound and more dynamic look, the X5 LCI can be fitted with oval shaped exhaust tips.
At the moment, we cannot confirm whether the engine power of the X5 Performance Parts has been increased as well, similar to the BMW X6 Performance, but we certainly expect to see similar numbers. The X6 Performance had its horsepower upped from the factory 306 hp for the xDrive35i model to 326 hp. The performance of the standard 407 hp xDrive50i may be increased to a whooping 449 hp.
Inside, the X5 Performance goes through a similar treatment as its brother, the X6: performance steering wheel, Alcantara upholstery, aluminum pedals and special designed footrest.
We hope to have more detailed information and extensive photos in the next days.
