As seen in other BMW models, the M-Sport package will make it its way into the new 5 Series as well. Due to be unveiled at this fall Paris Motor Show, the 5 Series M-Sport package brings the usual aerodynamics design cues, from deeper front air-dam with larger intakes, side sill extensions to a re-contoured back bumper to accommodate the larger the tailpipes.
The exterior upgrades give the new 5 Series a sharper, sportier appearance and the interior upgrades take enhance the driver-car interface and sportiness. The interior upgrades include a BMW M shifter, M steering wheel and M footrest. While not confirmed, carbon-fiber trim is also likely to be included.
In combination with the M Sports Package, customers will also likely have the choice of exclusive paintwork and wheel designs.
Mechanical changes with M-Sport packages are typically limited to wheels and tires, brakes and possibly upgraded suspension.
What’s not clear is whether or not engineers are also testing a range of new BMW Performance accessories designed for the latest 5-Series. Some of these performance parts made their way into other BMW models as well.
