The next BMW M5 is still a long way away, and even when it comes it may never get a wagon version. So those who want a cool, fast Bimmer wagon will have to be content with this, the new BMW 5 Series Touring M Performance. This model not only gets the usual M Performance visual goodies, but also power and sound kits.
The 2018 BMW 5 Series Touring M Performance based on the 540i xDrive Touring gets a bump by 25 kW/34 hp to 265 kW/360 hp and raises maximum torque by 50 Nm to 500 Nm, and that seems like enough power for a spirited drive, especially for a family wagon. There is also BMW M Performance exhaust system both for this and the 530 models, while the diesel versions gets it own unique system. Depending on engine type and equipment, it comes with either round or trapezoid tailpipe trims in chrome or carbon fibre. The trapezoid tailpipe trims are also available as separate accessories for all model versions of the new BMW 5 Series Touring.
Other notable technical goodies you can order with the new package include BMW M Performance sports brake system, 20 inch light alloy wheels, and the M Performance Parts for the styling which includes exterior mirror caps in carbon fibre, black radiator grille, black bars for the brake air channels, side sill stickers with M Performance inscription and BMW M Performance accent strips. For the interior you will get BMW M Performance sports steering wheel with Alcantara and silver-grey cross-stitch seam and red central marking a the main highlight.
