M5? What’s an M5 when you have the Fostla BMW 550i?

Wrapped and loaded.

The BMW M5 is quite an impressive four-door sports sedan in its own right, but it comes with quite a hefty price tag. Fostla and PP-Performance want to give BMW 550i owners a bit of a leg up on their sibling with a tuning program that makes it not only more powerful but also more of a head-turner as well.

The F10 BMW 550i comes packed with a 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 that’s packed with some exciting potential. Thankfully, Fostla, the car wrapping specialists, teamed up with PP-Performance to unlock some of that potential. The German tuners added on a Stage 2 electronic software optimization along with new downpipes, and a racing sports exhaust system. The result is a whopping 562 horsepower (570 PS) and 590 lb-ft. of torque – a pretty competitive figure compared to the F10 BMW M5. The factory top speed limiter was also removed for even more fun in the triple-digit range.

But what makes the Fostla BMW 550i a real head-turner is its new exterior transformation. The wrapping specialists added on a new Urban-Taupe-Matte-Metallic/Gray-Olive-Matte-Metallic wrap that lends a smoother, stealthy figure to the sports sedan. A new front spoiler lip and rear diffuser sport a glossy black color to add some contrast while the windows, headlights, and taillights are all tinted black. Inside, new custom-designed trim wrapping and a soft-coated leather sports steering wheel adds a more dynamic and exclusive touch.

To complete the exterior transformation, Fostla added on a set of wide Yido Performance TP1 Talia wheels with 5 mm spacers and 35 mm H&R lowering springs to ensure the fitment sits flush with the bodywork. Up front, the ten-spoke wheels measure 9.0 x 20 up front and 10.0 x 20 at the rear with 245/35 ZR20 and 285/30 ZR 20 Michelin Pilot Sport tires, respectively.

The more nimble, powerful, and show-stopping BMW 550i by Fostla and PP-Performance might not have the M5 badge, but it still stacks up quite well at a lower price too. The full conversion will run only 15,000 Euros for everything inside and out.
