BMW M Performance Parts for the new BMW 5 Series Sedan and the new BMW i5.Aug 17th, 2023
Munich. Ever since the first model generation, the BMW 5 Series Sedan has been characterised by refined sportiness and high-level long-distance comfort. The new, eighth model generation of the world’s most successful business sedan also highlights its dynamic performance character with its athletic proportions. The BMW M Performance Parts, which will be available in time for the market launch of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan and the all-electric BMW i5 in October 2023, specifically enhance its sporty appearance. The aerodynamic, interior and chassis parts range offers many options for high-performance customizing.
Perfectly coordinated: The M Performance Carbon parts.
The high-quality BMW M Performance aerodynamic and exterior components make the sporty, elegant business sedan look even more athletic. They have been specially developed for the new BMW 5 Series Sedan and the new BMW i5 with
M Sports Package or M Sports Package Pro and suit the geometry and design of the vehicle perfectly. Original BMW M Performance aerodynamic and exterior parts are always tested and approved according to the strict BMW Group quality guidelines. As they have already been homologated with the complete vehicle, it is not necessary to register them with the regulatory authorities.
All Carbon components are made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), sealed with clear lacquer to achieve a high-quality finish, and give the 5 Series models a sharp and sporty look from all angles. At the front and rear of the body, the four-part M Performance Carbon front attachment as well as the M Performance Carbon Pro rear spoiler and the three-part M Performance rear diffuser made of aramid fiber ensure a distinctive, racing-oriented look. A primed M Performance rear spoiler is also available as an option.
In addition to the M Performance Carbon side skirt attachments, which give the profile of the vehicle even more visual length and depth, the new M Performance accent stripes in Frozen Black emphasise the dynamically flowing lines of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan and the new BMW i5. The digitally printed accent stripes are in matt anthracite and feature the M Performance lettering.
The M Performance side skirt films, which consist of a striking curved line in matt grey, are also new to the range and highlight the vehicle’s profile even further. The films are located below the doors and provide an elegant touch of colour, especially on the black side skirts. The striking decorative stripe also harmonises perfectly with the M Performance accent stripe in Frozen Black and the
M Performance Carbon side skirt attachments.
The range of high-quality exterior parts is rounded off by the Carbon M exterior mirror caps and the M Performance Aramid antenna cover. The antenna cover made of aramid fiber-reinforced plastic is a visual and at the same time functional highlight on the vehicle roof. Aramid fiber has a similar surface appearance to carbon fiber but has a high electromagnetic permeability. The innovative material enables full functionality of the antenna in combination with a sporty look.
High-quality interior options add to the racing feel in the cockpit.As soon as you open the doors, the M Performance Carbon door sill plates make a striking statement and show unmistakably that the new business sedan is oriented towards dynamic performance. In addition, the M Performance velours floor mats with their synthetic leather edging and decorative stitching in contrasting colours also add a sporty touch to the footwell. The two front mats of the four-piece set also feature embroidered M Performance lettering on the fabric insert and a flag in the hallmark M colours. The velours floor mats perfectly match the existing M Performance product range and round off the high-quality appearance.
The M Performance key case also makes a clear performance-oriented statement. The perfect-fit protective cover made of high-quality nappa leather is a pleasure to hold and features carbon fiber effect embossing combined with Alcantara. The function keys can be accessed freely so that the key does not have to be taken out of its case.
The M Performance Carbon fuel filler cap is also available for the combustion engine and plug-in hybrid variants of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan. It has double-sided adhesive tape on the inside and can be attached to the existing fuel filler cap by the customer.
Light alloy wheels and sport brake system for optimised performance.
The M Performance light alloy wheels available for the new BMW 5 Series Sedan and the all-electric BMW i5 are ideally suited to a sporty driving style and make for a highly distinctive look. The range for the new BMW 5 Series Sedan and the new BMW i5 includes 19 and 21-inch wheel sets. The summer wheel with tyre set with 21-inch M Performance Cross-spoke light alloy wheels is available for all drive types in either M Bicolor Jet Black gloss finish or M Frozen Midnight Grey.
For all model variants the 19-inch M Performance light alloy wheels in Y-Spoke design in matt black are also available as a summer wheel with tyre set. With the exception of the BMW i5 M60 xDrive, the corresponding winter wheel with tyre set, which is also suitable for snow chains (power consumption combined: 20.6 – 18.2 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 0 g/km according to WLTP) is available for all drive variants of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan. Additional wheel sets are stowed in style in the M Performance tyre bags. The four-piece set is suitable for wheels sized 17 to 22 inches and features M Performance lettering.
The M Performance 20-inch brake system delivers the deceleration power required for a sporty driving style. Its red-painted brake calipers featuring the four-colour M logo look particularly distinctive in conjunction with the open rim design of the 21-inch light alloy wheels. The sport brake system uses six-piston aluminium fixed-caliper brakes at the front and single-piston fist-caliper brakes at the rear. The large-format, internally ventilated and perforated M Performance lightweight brake discs provide improved thermal load-bearing capacity and thus deliver even higher breaking power under extreme conditions, for example on the race track.
