Available for the G31 5er Touring, the BMW M Performance Power Kits provide a perfectly dosed increase in power for the engine in question, increasing driving performance but without influencing fuel consumption and exhaust emissions according to the EU test cycle. A BMW Power and Sound Kit is offered from market launch for the 6-cylinder petrol engine model BMW 540i xDrive Touring (combined fuel consumption: 7.7 – 7.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 177 – 167 g/km) which increases output by 25 kW/34 hp to 265 kW/360 hp and raises maximum torque by 50 Nm to 500 Nm.
The BMW M Performance exhaust system is also available as a separate accessory product – both for the BMW 540i xDrive Touring and the BMW 530i Touring (combined fuel consumption: 6.3 – 5.8 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 143 – 133 g/km). The BMW M Performance diesel exhaust system is offered for the diesel models BMW 530d Touring (combined fuel consumption: 5.1 – 4.7 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 134 – 124 g/km), BMW 530d xDrive Touring (combined fuel consumption: 5.7 – 5.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 149 – 139 g/km) and BMW 520d Touring (combined fuel consumption: 4.9 – 4.5 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 129 – 119 g/km). In all models, the respective stainless steel sports silencer not only ensures a characteristic sound but also adds an attractive touch of visual flair. Depending on engine type and equipment, it comes with either round or trapezoid tailpipe trims in chrome or carbon fibre. The trapezoid tailpipe trims are also available as separate accessories for all model versions of the new BMW 5 Series Touring.
The BMW M Performance sports brake system available for the BMW 5 Series Touring offers a particularly high level of thermal resilience, thereby ensuring a constant deceleration effect even when driving in highly dynamic style. These qualities are achieved by means of inner vented, perforated lightweight construction brake discs with 4-piston fixed caliper brakes made of aluminum on the front axle and single-piston floating caliper brakes on the rear axle. Red brake calipers serve as a visual indication of the fact that the design is derived from motor racing.
They particularly come into their own in combination with the 20-inch BMW M Performance light alloy wheels. These feature a dual-level double-spoke design and are available entirely in the color Orbit Grey or in a Bi-Color finish. The weight-optimized forged aluminum wheels have mixed tires in the sizes 245/35 R20 on the front axle and 275/30 R20 on the rear axle, complete with emergency running properties.
The driving characteristics and appearance of the new BMW 5 Series Touring can also be enhanced by means of model-specific BMW M Performance Parts in the product category of aerodynamics. Here the range includes attachment parts for the front bumper in carbon fibre and a dual-section diffuser insert for the rear apron. The lower section of the rear diffuser is available both in hand-crafted carbon fibre as well as in a more discreet version made of polyurethane (PUR), which can be painted according to customer preference.
This paint finish option is also available for the matte black side sill attachments made of PUR. Further visual highlights can be added in the form of BMW M Performance exterior mirror caps in carbon fibre, the black BMW M Performance radiator grille, black BMW M Performance bars for the brake air channels, side sill stickers with M Performance inscription and BMW M Performance accent strips.
A particular attraction from the cockpit area is the BMW M Performance sports steering wheel. In vehicles with an 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission the latter comes with shift paddles for manual gear selection. The steering is dressed in Alcantara and complete with silver-grey cross-stitch seam and red central marking at the 12 o’clock position.
The model-specific BMW M Performance accessories are offered to coincide with the launch of the new BMW 5 Series Touring.
