    Hot on the heels of the debut of the new G30 5 Series comes a new range of BMW M Performance accessories for the car. The areas these accessories cover include: ride and handling; the interior; the exterior; and the engine. Chief among the options is an M Performance Power and Sound kit available for the 540i (in both two- and fourwheel drive guises). This increases power by 34hp, taking the total to 360hp, as well as adding an additional 37ft lb of torque, bringing the total to a very healthy 369ft lb. A new silencer system with chrome tailpipe trims completes the look (and enhances the sound) all with no impact on official fuel economy figures. The silencer system on its own can be retrofitted to the 540i or 530i with the option of circular or trapezoid pipes in chrome or carbon fibre.

    BMW isn’t limiting the M Performance pack to petrol engined cars. As of summer 2017 an #M-Performance-Power-Kit will be launched for the 530d in two-wheel drive and xDrive trim. This offers similar increases to those seen on the petrol cars, with outright power increased by 27hp (totalling 292hp) and torque up 22ft lb (totalling 479 ft lb). Fuel consumption figures remain unaffected.

    Underneath, owners can spec 20-inch M Performance alloy wheels in Orbit grey or a bi-colour finish. To compliment the look of the wheels, and adding to its stopping power, is an uprated braking system of vented lightweight discs clamped by fourpot callipers up front, and single-piston floating callipers at the rear. Finished in red, these callipers give the BMW-5-Series a more distinctive look.

    Speaking of looks, aerodynamics are addressed with a series of upgrades for those cars already fitted with the M Sport kit and these include front spoiler additions, a rear diffuser and a rear spoiler in carbon fibre finish. As supplementary features, there is also a choice of black side sill attachments and – as an alternative to the carbon fibre version – a rear spoiler and rear diffuser made of polyurethane (PUR). Inside, a new sports steering wheel in Alcantara controls M Performance sports steering for maximum driver feedback.
