Home / Social media / News / BMW's 5-Series now has an M Performance Carbon parts catalogue, we like.


The BMW 5 Series Sedan has been the sedan of choice for business executives and fans of sheer driving pleasure, here in SA many regard the 5 Series as the model to own to show the world that you’ve made it. Over the course of six generations, the 5 Series has even cemented itself as a top choice for performance fanatics in the form of the BMW M5. A sportscar disguised as a business sedan with blistering performance and all the creature comforts you could want. As capable on a racetrack as it is on a 2 000 km trip to the coast. The M5 has always been the best-looking, as you’d expect, but with the new range of M Performance Carbon parts now available for the platform, any version of the 5 Series can look as good. Of course, the parts can also be added to the M5 to spice it up a little more. The parts catalogue shows off some great add-ons and will be available by the time the new all-electric BMW i5 is launched later this year in October. The available parts pay attention to aerodynamics as well as the interior and chassis and 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. As we’ve come to expect from the house of M, these parts look amazing and are made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), sealed with a clear lacquer to achieve that typically-BMW high-quality finish.

The list of available M Performance goodies is impressive, ends there’s the 4-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 fibre, and there’s also a primed M Performance rear spoiler available as an option. There are M Performance Carbon side skirt attachments so the profile can match the ends, and owners can also order the new M Performance accent stripes in Frozen Black. Owners can also have a Carbon M exterior mirror caps and an M Performance Aramid antenna cover. There’s an M Performance Carbon fuel filler cap cover too. For the cabin, there are options including the M Performance Carbon door sill plates, M Performance velour floor mats with their synthetic leather edging and decorative stitching and the two front mats also feature embroidered M Performance lettering on the fabric insert and a flag in M colours. The M Performance key case also makes a clear performance-oriented statement. The M Performance light alloy wheels available for the new BMW 5 Series Sedan include 19 and 21-inch wheelsets, and for all model variants, there are the 19-inch M Performance light alloy wheels in a Y-Spoke design and matt black finish. To reign the sizeable sedan in, there’s the option of an M Performance 20-inch brake discs with red-painted 6-pot calipers featuring the four-colour M logo. With the 5 Series being available worldwide, these will surely be seen as an option here in SA. Pricing will be released in October along with the i5.
