BMW Offers M Performance Show and Go Parts for 5 Series, M5

Show off your carbon self with BMW 5er M Performance accessories

  • Flash carbon trim and spoilers rule the day

  • M5s can get height-adjustable suspension and brake upgrades


Want a little more M for your BMW 5 Series, including the M5 and BMW M5 Competition? BMW is bringing some in-house parts to the model to give the five a little more go and a little more style.

A Range-Topping BMW M5 CS Appears To Be On Its Way

We’re going to start with the appearance bits because that’s how BMW ordered them. We think M should be about performance first, but we won’t deny that the new M Performance front splitter and side skirts in carbon and gloss black look sharp. Likewise, the new kidney grilles, the front fender garnish, and the mirror caps all in carbon fibre. There are two levels of spoiler option, and yes, you can get a carbon fuel filler cap.

Inside, an M Performance steering wheel has big thumb rests and is finished in Alcantara for grip. Letting you know it’s a performance part, there’s a big 12 o’clock top of the wheel marking. Other coverings including carbon and leather choices are available, but the Pro model reserved for M5s gets polished carbon and Alcantara with a blue top stripe.

Now to the dirty bits. For M5 and M5 Competition, a new sports suspension lets you lower the car from 5 to 20 mm for less roll. Optional brakes bring you to a halt more quickly, and 20-inch wheels just look good. Well, they also let more air out of the wheel for less drag, says BMW. Diesel cars can get a new exhaust, but we won’t see either here.

Lastly, to take your M with you when you leave the car, there’s an M Performance key case, a tire bag, and an indoor car cover with kidney grille and big M on the roof.
