German tuner AC Schnitzer came up with a typical package for the 2011 BMW 5 Series, the Touring version. It’s really hard to see why you should pay money for a kit that makes your car look uglier than it is, but here we are! Apart from the looks though, AC also offers power upgrade for all diesel engines in the range, which is nice.

Here’s the power figures for the tuned engines:

for 520d from 135 kW / 184 HP to 160 kW / 218 HP
for 525d from 150 kW / 204 HP to 180 kW / 245 HP
for 530d from 180 kW / 245 HP to 210 kW / 286 HP
for 535d from 220 kW / 300 HP to 265 kW / 360 HP

Other modifications here include engine styling optics with displacement emblem, and tailpipes, twin sports rear silencer with chromed “Sports Trim“ tail trims (left / right) (for 550i, 535i and 535d as well as 530d and 520d) – in development “Racing“ tailtrim, chromed (for 520d, 525d, 530d).

Then there’s the brakes where AC offers 8-piston high performance brake system for the front axle, consisting of: 8-pot fixed caliper, (left – right) perforated, internally vented brake discs Ø 374 x 36 mm, set brake pads, 8-pieced brake pads and caliper mounting bracket. They can also provide spring kits for the car’s suspension.

As for the wheels, you get Type IV wheels silver in 19 inch and BiColor in 19 and 20 inchType V lightweight forged wheels in 20 inch Type VIII wheels BiColor in 19 Zoll Type VIII racing forged wheels BiColor in 21 inch.

For the interior they came up with a checkered carbon fiber trim that can hypnotize you if you stare at it for more 5 seconds, black “Exclusiv“ aluminium cover for i-Drive system controller, aluminium foot rest and pedals, velours trunk mat and floor mats.

And if you’re still insisting for that body kit, here’s its ingredients:

Front spoiler (cars without M-Technik), carbon front spoiler elements (cars with M-Technik), chromed front grille, bonnet vents (country specific), chromed centre bar for bonnet vents, side skirt elements, chromed design elements for side skirts rear roof spoiler (Sedan), rear roof spoiler (Touring), rear spoiler (Sedan), rear skirt cover (Sedan without M-Technik), carbon rear skirt insert (Touring with M-Technik), rear skirt protection foil.
