Whichever way you cut it, the E60 BMW 5 Series is old news. Sure, a lot of people still find that weird and ungainly design desirable. But a quick look at the prices for second-hand E60 reveals the car is on a free fall. Still, if you own one of these don’t scarp it just yet.
There are easy and affordable ways to spice up your old Bimmer and keep it fresh for at least another year, as demonstrated by Thai tuner Prodrive in this neat and tidy package for an E60 535i sedan.
What the tuner has done to refresh the looks of this BMW 5 Series is rather simple. They’ve fitted it with a new set of wheels and bolted on an aero kit. You have to be careful to choose the right parts, though, otherwise you end up making your old and tattered car look even worse than before!
Luckily Prodrive has chosen some of the best aftermarket parts for this treatment, including a body kit from Hamann – consisting of carbon fiber front spoiler and boot lid wing – and a set of 20-inch ADV7 MV.2 wheels from ADV1 in matte black. The car also features M5’s bumpers and badges, which give it a fairly convincing M look.
