BMW 5 Series And i5 Touring Get Slick-Looking M Performance Accessories

Key Takeaways

  • BMW releases M Performance parts for 5 Series and i5 Touring.
  • Upgrades include front splitter, rear diffuser, stronger brakes, and new wheel designs.
  • Interior upgrades range from M door sill trims and floor mats to key fob cases and an M fuel filler cap.

BMW has released new M Performance parts for the 5 Series and i5 Touring, providing Munich’s luxury family wagon with sporty exterior and interior accessories. The Touring duo benefit from a new three-part carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) front splitter. This adds much-needed aggression to the front fascia and works well with the existing M Sport bumpers. A high gloss finish is also available.

While the carbon side sill attachments are a fine addition, the accompanying side decals appear juvenile, especially on an upmarket family vehicle. BMW says the digitally printed stripes accentuate the vehicle’s lines, but we can’t help but think the car would look better without them. The side mirror caps also receive carbon embellishments, while the aerial cover receives an Aramid-reinforced aerial cover.

Make Your Family Wagon Look Racy And Aggressive

Aramid (an artificial fiber with high tensile strength) has also been used for the rear diffuser. It looks good, but the exhaust-style cutouts look odd on the i5 M60 pictured here. It could look more complete on an ICE-engined 5 Series Touring. Finishing off the upgrades to the rear fascia are M Performance Carbon rear fins and a roof spoiler painted in high gloss black.

There are also several light alloy wheel designs to choose from, ranging from 19 to 21 inches. For example, the 21-inch M Performance Cross Spoke wheels are available in M BiColor Jet Back or M Frozen Midnight Grey. Several summer and winter combinations are available, depending on the customer’s needs. A 20-inch brake system is also available, featuring six-piston aluminum calipers at the front and single-piston floating calipers at the rear. Naturally, they’re painted red.

Minor Interior Upgrades

Moving inside, you’ll find additional M Performance upgrades. For a start, there are several M door sill trims and M Performance floor mats with leather-esque edging and contrast stitching in the BMW M colors. Aside from that, several additional accessories, such as an Alcantara/leather key case with carbon fiber-like trim and an M Performance Carbon fuel filler cap for ICE and PHEV versions of the 5 Series Touring.

A carbon fiber grille surround is also offered, says BMW, but it hasn’t provided any pictures.

While these new components make the latest 5 Series Touring look menacing, much like the AC Schnitzer options for the 5er, we guess it will look more restrained when parked alongside the upcoming M5 Touring. Thankfully, BMW USA has decided to bring the M5 longroof to the United States, which means the RS6 Avant will finally have competition from Munich. Powered by a plug-in hybrid 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, the super wagon will reportedly produce 718 horsepower. It’s expected to enter production in November 2024, so we can expect a reveal any minute now.
