BMW Australia today announced the introduction of a Limited Edition M Sport version of Australia’s top-selling large luxury SAV, the X5 M Sport Limited Edition.

Priced from $99,900 drive away, the BMW X5 M Sport Limited Edition adds the M Sport exterior body kit, 20” M double spoke Alloy wheels, M leather steering wheel with gearshift paddles and chrome tail pipe finisher from the M Sport range. Additionally, features such as Navigation Professional, voice control, rear view camera with top view, electric seat adjustment, automatic tailgate operation, Bi-Xenon headlights including headlight washers and High Beam Assist with Anti-dazzle exterior mirrors add to the already high standard specification of the BMW X5 xDrive 30d. This represents more than $15,000 of additional value to customers.

As part of the ‘Festival of M’ promotion*, BMW is also offering its highly–popular M Sport package at no cost on its 5 Series and Z4 models, as well as the M Sport ‘Plus’ package at no cost on its 1 and 3 Series Coupe and Convertible range representing additional customer value of between $2500 to $7900.

The M Sport Plus package for the 1 and 3 Series models boasts M Sport suspension, M Leather Steering wheel, M Aerodynamics package, BMW Individual High Gloss shadow line and anthracite roof liner (Coupé variants) all familiar from the existing M Sport package. In addition, this offering now includes features such as unique 18” M light-alloy wheels in Ferric Grey, door sill finishers with Chrome-plated “edition” designation and Royal Blue contrast stitching in the upholstery when ordered in Dakota leather black which combines with velour floor mats with blue leather piping.

Model specific content for the 1 Series Coupé and Convertible includes Aluminium Glacier Silver interior trim, kidney grille bars in high-gloss black and blackline rear lights coupled with an extended range of paint colours (metallic at additional cost) including Vermillion Red and Carbon Black to further highlight the sporty nature of this package.

The 3 Series Coupé / Convertible M Sport Plus package is differentiated by Interior trim in Aluminium Silver Dark, Kidney Grille bars and frame in Chrome, Sports Seats, Stainless Steel foot pedals and exterior mirror caps in black as well as Metallic paint being included in the package.
