Still waiting for the M5? Kelleners has you covered.
Here at MotoringExposure, we’re still waiting for the new BMW F10 M5 to be unveiled, along with the majority of the automotive community. For those still hanging in suspense or for those who just couldn’t wait and bought a 5 Series M Sport, Kelleners has the tuning program for you.
The new 5 Series models equipped with the M Sport package undoubtedly fall short of the twin-turbocharged V-8 used in the new M5. But, Kelleners has developed some engine tuning to make the BMW F10 520d and 535i models a bit more exciting. The 184 hp/204 lb-ft. turbodiesel now spits out 218 ponies and a solid 332 lb-ft. of torque after Kelleners engine tuning. The gasoline-powered 3.0-liter inline-six also sees a significant boost with the stock 306 hp/295 lb-ft. being increased to 367 hp and 354 lb-ft. of torque.
Kelleners Sport has also designed a new aerodynamics package that gives the F10 a more aggressive appearance and improves downforce. The unique front bumper that is fitted to M Sport-equipped cars has been fitted with a flashy electropolished stainless-steel mesh. At the bottom of the bumper is a new spoiler lip that reduces lift at the front axle. The same design is carried along each side with the addition of new side skirts and continues to the rear of the car, where a new apron with integrated diffuser is fitted. The new bumper incorporates two 255 x 90 mm oval exhausts. Atop the trunk is a subtle spoiler that finishes the design and creates additional downforce.
The package wouldn’t be complete without a new wheel and tire fitment. Two types of Kelleners sport alloy wheels are available: the “Hamburg” design with polished silver graphite, polished platinum silver, or matte black finishes, or the “Berlin” design in polished platinum silver, polished matte black, or matte black. Both sets of wheels measure 9 x 20 up front and 10 x 20 at the rear, and are fitted with 255/35 and 285/30 tires respectively. Finishing the fitment is a set of new Kelleners Sport springs that lower the car by 30 mm and improve the overall center of gravity.
Inside the M Sport 5 Series is a sportier, more refined interior. Polished aluminum pedals and footrests create a more driver-oriented experience, and velour black floor mats add a luxurious feel. The stock trim is replaced with quality midnight black leather with white stitching.
The Kelleners Sport BMW F10 5 Series M Sport tuning program is available for all M Sport-equipped BMW F10 models. The package can be ordered whole or as individual accessories. Pricing has not been announced.
