In just a few days, BMW will kick off the first official press test drives of the all-new 2017 BMW 5 Series.

The pre-production prototype was spotted near the Dingolfing plant where the manufacturing process of the G30 sedan has just begun. The M Sport Package will be available starting March 2017, just a month after the first 5 Series models are being launched and includes an exterior M Aerodynamic package – front apron with larger air intakes, side skirt trim, a diffusor-style rear apron and an exhaust system with two rectangular tailpipes- lowered M Sport suspension and M light-alloy wheels, in either 18″ or 19″.
The front of the kidney struts and the Air Breather outlets behind the front wheels are painted glossy in black, while this pre-production 530d comes with winter tires already, as required by the German law.
In the interior, the M Sport package includes sports heated seats and a specific cover made, an M Sports leather steering wheel, aluminum trim and some specific details such as the illuminated M entry rails.
In Germany, the price for the M Sport package varies, depending on the motorization, between 4,600 and 5,500 euros.
